The Destination
Though Costa Rica accounts for less than 0.03 percent of the world's landmass, the Central American country is home to 5 percent of Earth's species. The unparalleled biodiversity is centered in its rain forests, particularly the Monte Verde Cloud Forest Reserve: 10,000 acres that have never been cut down, making it one of 12 primary rain forests left on earth. The incomparable array of living things—from tree-dwelling sloths to scarcely known species of orchids—draws scientists as well as tourists. And while the area is remarkable for research, it takes no study to appreciate the raw majesty of its teeming jungles.

The Digs
As one of the 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, the Chachagua Rainforest Hotel & Hacienda operates on sustainable practices inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding Monteverde Mountain Range. Here, secluded rain forest rooms and bungalows overlook the hotel's lush acreage and include spacious balconies—equipped with a hammock, a couch, and a bar—and daily access to an American breakfast made from organic ingredients grown on its working farm. You'll also find a spring-fed pool, restaurant and bar, and plenty of hiking and biking trails.

The Diversions
With 200 acres at your disposal, you'll have plenty to keep you entertained right on the Chachagua grounds. Take a sustainability tour around the farm and hotel; saddle up for a horseback jaunt; or join a guided hike through the many forested trails, day or night. You'll also have ample opportunity to experience Costa Rica beyond Chachagua. Visit breathtaking Arenal Volcano; tour the Monteverde canopy or hanging bridges; bungee jump or repell down into canyons; or even explore the jungle on ATVs.

  • "At this working ranch, you can see caballeros at work or take a horseback ride into the rain forest. Large, reflective windows enclosing each cabina's shower serve a marvelous purpose: birds gather outside your window to watch their own reflections."
