The Lodge’s second story, with dramatic balcony overlooking the beautiful lobby below, has eight guest rooms. Each room features two full beds with therapeutic mattresses and bedspreads woven by the Maya of the Guatemalan Atitlan area, a ceiling fan and a private bathroom built from marble extracted and processed locally, solar-heated water, and towels and bed sheets made from bamboo fiber. The screened windows can be opened to welcome the refreshing breeze.

The well-appointed private cabins have a double bed and accommodate two people. Each has a private bathroom, ceiling fan, the windows have screens so they can be open to welcome the refreshing breeze and a deck with rocking chairs.

The largest cabin has two double beds to accommodate up to four people, a spacious private bathroom, screened windows and a ceiling fan. The fully-equipped, roomy kitchen features a hand-hewn table with seating. The wrap-around deck is outfitted with rocking chairs where you can relax and enjoy the surrounding sights and sounds of nature.


Macaw Lodge is situated in a remote natural oasis. There are no restaurants or shopping in the area. Fortunately, the cuisine, prepared by a local chef and her team, is plentiful, delicious and nutritious. We incorporate vegetables, lettuces, herbs and fruits from our gardens along with homemade breads and tortillas, jams and salsas, and fresh meats, eggs and other foods from Costa Rica. You can choose from a two- or three-meal plan. Each plan includes breakfast and, with the two-meal option, you can opt for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is often buffet style, while lunch and dinner are served at your table in the dining room overlooking the botanical gardens. You can do a little bird and butterfly watching while you dine. Coffee, teas, juices and water are provided and you can purchase sodas, beer or wine from our stocked refrigerator. Both lunch and dinner include three courses with salad or soup (varies daily, chef’s choice), hearty entrée and dessert.
