Celeste Mountain Lodge is an eco-lodge that is perched on the edge of the valley, with incredible views of the Tenorio Volcano stretching across the horizon. This eclectic lodge is located around 30 minutes from the Tenorio Volcano National Park and is the perfect place to relax between hikes and spot some of the beautiful birds this area is famous for. This hotel is ideal for couples, small families, and groups of friends interested in a natural experience, birdwatching, and a family-feeling experience.
This lodge consists of two floors of accommodations and a common area. The first floor of the common area has a small lounge, indoor garden, and reading area, while the upstairs is the lodge restaurant. The restaurant makes healthy, hearty Costa Rican-Fusion cuisine that includes all of the local staples. Across the street from the hotel is a private trail through the forest, where guests can try to spot even more birds and wildlife.
The lodge is also extremely focused on being sustainable, adhering to the “reduce, reuse, recycle” philosophy. In addition to many other sustainable characteristics, the lodge uses bio-purifiers for their wastewater, a bioclimatic clothes dryer, recycled building materials, and solar panels for hot water. Guests can enjoy a comfortable stay knowing they are creating minimal environmental impact.
This hotel is located approximately 3.5 hours from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose (121 miles/195 km) and 2 hours from Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia (55 miles/90 km).

At the moment the Hotel is implementing the process of the CST (Certification for Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica) .
The Certification for Sustainable Tourism Program – CST – is a product of the Costa Rican Tourism Board and it is regulated by the Costa Rican National Accreditation Commission. The certification is based on an accreditation of a scale of 5 “levels” of sustainable tourism achievement.
CST gives you reliable information regarding companies that make efforts to improve their management and operations to offer a sustainable product. It is also a good tool to differentiate those companies that are truly engaged with sustainable practices, from others that claim to be sustainable but are inconsistent in their actions.
The range of prices scale is based on the following criteria:
$ Refers to Budget accommodation: ranging from $70-100
$$ Medium: $100 – 150
