Rio Magnolia is the perfect retreat for plant enthusiasts, animal lovers,  bird watchers, and entomologists. Here, the wildlife is flourishing, and the  protected forest provides a safe home for all the wild creatures. Stay at Rio Magnolia to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with Mother Nature.

Experience the casual elegance of the Lodge, an exciting combination of comfortable accommodations set in primitive surroundings. Imagine waking up nestled in soft white linens while listening to the sounds from the jungle! Breakfast always starts with Arabica coffee from our coffee plantation, fresh fruit and juice and homemade granola and yoghurt followed by a daily special. Tour our plantation and see how our plants are shade grown and the ‘cherries’ are processed using the renewable energy from our hydro plant. Dinner menus are prepared daily to meet your expectations for great food using the freshest ingredients. Produce that we don’t grow in our garden, we purchase from local farmers and from the weekly feria (farmer’s market) in San Isidro. In the evening, enjoy mouth-watering appetizers while watching the sunset over the ocean at the bar or on the terrace, or cozy up by our crackling fireplace. For dinner the tables are dressed with colourful table linens. Candles flicker.

Río Magnolia promises to provide its guests with superior accommodations, food, and service. Words or pictures cannot describe the beauty and magnificence of the vistas; Rio Magnolia is a rainforest experience! Wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and toucans!

Pura Vida
