Yabá Chiguí – Live the experience!!
The small but fine gay-friendly Yabá Chiguí Lodge at the South Pacific offers its visitors comfortable bungalows and 5 stars sight to the jungle. Live the experience!!
Yabá Chiguí means mountain in the Borucas language; the Yabá Chiguí Lodge is situated near to the town of Ojochal in the mountain range of the Southern Pacific Coast. The number of guests is manageable since there are 4 bungalows that permit visitors to stay in the shade of the copious jungle, but at the same time, they aren’t too far away from all the adventures the coast offers. The proprietors, Ana and Juan fell in love with this place, and they are now living their dream, to get to welcome visitors from all over the world and show them a little part of their Costa Rica.
About the accommodation
Three of the four bungalows are built so that guests can see right from their king size bed through the glass wall right into the jungle, and in the direction of the river. Morning recitals of howler monkeys are highly probable every day. Moreover, the private balcony permits guests to have their personal piece of nature, even from the shower, the forest is always in visual range. As a singular feature, the bungalows offer an open-air shower. Additionally, they offer a sofa, a fridge besides a coffee maker and a kettle for tea. The three bungalows with a view to the jungle can be reserved for up to two adults and one child maximum, the fourth bungalow can house up to four adults because of an extendable bed. This bungalow is also different from the other three because it offers a view to the pool, but it does not offer an open-air shower nor a balcony.
In the lodge itself, you’ll just be able to have breakfast. Ana and Juan would like to show the guests that Costa Rican breakfast does not necessarily have to include rice and beans, but many different options including an indigenous version of corn tortilla – very recommended! For all other meals, you’ll find plenty of places to eat for all budgets in the near area. Ojochal is recognized for its first-rate restaurants, visited by residents as well.
The South Pacific appeals with its jewel, the Marino Ballena National Park, where you are able to go on a boat tour for whale watching between August and October and from January to March. All year round you’ll be able to see dolphins. The Sierpe-Terraba mangroves are one of the biggest and most important mangrove forests in whole Central America. As well, the region is the entrance to the famous Corcovado National Park that can be visited on a day tour or can be the next destination going through the town of Sierpe. Several waterfalls of diverse sizes and shapes are also well worth a visit. It’s recommended to have a rental car in this area so you can be flexible while going around.
