Hotel Shawandha Ecolodge

The Hotel Shawandha Ecolodge is an eco-friendly, with a neo-primitive concept, offering an artistic fusion of hardwoods accommodation on the Caribbean Coast. Located close to Playa Chiquita, a breathtaking white sand beach that haves crystal-clear waters accessible only by a private trail. This accommodation is well known for its hospitality and biodiversity.


Shawandha Ecolodge is ideal for nature lovers, honeymooners and family holidays. Its location provides an amazing experience for birdwatchers, nature lovers, surfers and photographers. The stunning Playa Chiquita is an active member of the Blue Flag Program, which works towards the sustainable development of Costa Rica’s beaches and the marine ecosystems.

Shawandha Ecolodge has fourteen cozy chalets and six cute tepees placed in the heart of the rainforest. The accommodations combine bamboo, hardwoods and palm, so you can feel the full essence of our Caribbean region.

Other special amenities you can find are:  two swimming pools (one with waterfalls), a modern restaurant where you can taste delicious local dishes right on the beach.

Our opinion

Nice place to stay in touch with nature surrounded by big trees, gardens, and animals; experience the amazing wakeup call with the howler monkeys.

One of the hotel’s main priorities is conserving the natural habitat and the species surrounding the property, besides they actively fight for the conservation of local heritage, environmental education, and social integrity.

The lodge is located near the Jaguar Rescue Centre, the Ara Macaw centre, other pristine beaches, nightlife, and a variety of local and international restaurants.

Besides, to get to the beach you only have to cross the quiet main road and walk down a private path leading to a stunning beach.
