Looking for Eco-therapy and great cousine?
We (my fiancée and I) visited for the weekend trying to find a good disconnecting place from our daily lives (she’s a gorgeous urologist and I’m a very lucky-of-having-her business guy) but we ended up finding a very magical place. If you want to really connect with nature, your couple and yourself, this is the place. Since you arrive to the main gate, you feel truly welcomed. All staff is happy, talkative and pending on how you are enjoying or what your needs are. We recommend the spa, we only had chance for 1 hour session, but it truly worth it, please don’t miss it! A must is the trail walk to the waterfalls, naturally gorgeous landscape, all by yourself and plenty of flora and fauna. I believe if you take the trial between 4:00 am and 5:00 am you might find lots of fauna, it takes 2.5 hours. Rooms are so nice decorated, with hot cocoa every afternoon and natural juices delivered every morning; warm and private. You really feel you are connected with nature in the cloud forests. Must takes: water thumbler, hiking boots, hat, long sleeve and sun block for trail walking (DO NOT EXTRACT PLANTS AND TAKE ANY GARBAGE BACK WITH YOU). A camera, swiss army knife and of course, a great attitude to enjoy God’s best reward. Enjoy!
Wonderful small lodge in a green environment
We spent 3 nights here and had a wonderful time. We visited different waterfalls, did a bird watching tour, walked the trails and enjoyed the delicious food and wines. The service was impeccable and very welcoming!
40th birthday - wedding anniversary celebration
We celebrate June hard! It’s my birthday and our wedding anniversary - add father’s day to the combo and you’ll have an extra excuse to look for amazing places like this! I can not really find the right words to describe this place. The name is itself it’s a good start, though “El Silencio”! All you hear are birds singing and water coming down the stream. From the moment we arrived, we felt special! Everybody knew our name, took our bags, parked the car, took us in a short walk to know the place... I know these are things that “should” happen at a 5 start hotel, but somehow the staff was so nice and kind, it felt extra special. We got to the room and there was a special little treat for my birthday, we got massages, had a romantic dinner right next to the river and took a hike to the waterfalls. I think 1-2 nights are enough; there were still a couple more things you could do like horse-back ridding or canopy, but we just wanted to “unplug” from reality and that’s exactly what we got (I wouldn’t bring my boys here, though - 7 and 4 - they would be to noisy for this place) Take into account this is in the middle of the rainy forest, there will be rain! Bring hiking shoes, warm clothes, sun screen; forget about TVs and electronics (there is WiFi and great wine though, so all good) We Would definitely recommend this place to our friends (locals and visitors) and will probably come back for another getaway; it’s only about an hour and a half away from downtown and the views on the way are amazing!
Wonderful, if not a little damp
An absolutely fantastic place to visit to see exotic birds. Extremely welcoming with a great bar and restaurant. It was damp there, but at altitude in the mountains, it was only to be expected. Highly recommended.
El Silencio is amazing
Our stay was one out of a fairy tale. The seclusion from a normal vacation made for an intimate getaway. The staff was amazing from the moment we arrived until we left. The entire restaurant staff was great, from the dishes prepared by the chef and her staff to the service personnel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return to this little piece of patadise.
