A 45-minute zip up the coast, Morromico Lodge sits on the edge of the Utria National Park on a black sand beach amidst soaring palms, tumbling waterfalls & pristine tropical rainforest.

A river passes through the property bringing fresh filtered water from the mountains for drinking & washing. Lemons, coconut, banana, cacao, papaya, pineapple, guanabana & sapote grow in profusion.

What we love about Morromico Lodge

  • Built almost entirely from choibá, one of the tallest trees in the jungle, Morromico Lodge is highly sustainable
  • There are four simple but comfortable rooms with double beds, en-suite bathrooms, a hammock & views over the Pacific.
  • The private cabaña, set slightly away from the main house, is our favourite option
  • There’s no wifi or phone signal, making it a perfect place to switch off
  • A family-run operation, Melisa & her brother Pablo host guests & act as guides
  • Every meal is an ode to the region’s stunning gastronomy: soups, fresh fish, coconut rice, patacones, frijoles, arepas & myriad fruit & vegetables from the garden
