Dantica Cloud Forest Lodge is a beautiful little eco-boutique hotel, located on top of a hill inside the Los Santos Forest reserve and bordering the Los Quetzales National Park. High up in the fresh mountains and situated in, above and below the clouds, Dantica is the heart of the cloud forest, one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world.


Dantica combines quality and comfort in order to allow you to experience and enjoy the cloud forest in its purest form. The hotel distinguishes itself by its personalized attention, harmony with nature and respect for the environment. All the comfort you will find in the Bungalows is backed by sustainable practices; from ecological chimneys, biodegradable soaps and cleaning materials, recycling and solar heated water to donations, education, organic crops and reforestation.

The lodge has a private forest reserve with Primary Upper Montane Cloud Forest, mainly century old oaks (Quercus spp.). The size and shape of the Bungalows is determined by the trees growing near them.

Besides the hotel we have our restaurant Le Tapir, where you can enjoy a breakfast a la carte, as well as lunch or dinner with among others home-made pastas. The dishes are prepared with fresh herbs and vegetables from our organic herb garden and greenhouse, and local dishes and ingredients are integrated in the menu. The restaurant also produces its own organic fertilizer. Our large gallery offers indigenous art and handicrafts from Costa Rica and other Latin American countries based on fair trade.
