Pizote Lodge's wood cabins and colorful bungalows are built alongside 150-year old towering chilamate trees, biological treasures of the lush coastal rainforest that once dominated the area. Converted from an old cattle ranch and cacao farm, Pizote Lodge preserves about 25 acres of cacao forest behind the lodge and uses the old pasture for its main lodge, rooms and pool.read more close
From the lodge, it's only a short stroll down the private driveway and across the street to Playa Negra. Pizote Lodge is a quarter-mile outside town, close to Puerto Viejo's restaurants and night life, but far enough away to get a quiet night's sleep.
Green coconut palms, citrus trees and pink ginger flowers grow beside gargantuan rainforest trees layered with elephant-eared bromeliads and vines as you retreat down the garden pathways to Pizote Lodge's 26 rooms. Spread out among the property, the lodge has 8 standard rooms, 6 standard bungalows, 2 houses capable of sleeping at least 8 people and 4 luxury bungalows.
Luxury bungalows, $100 in dry season (Sept.-Nov.) with breakfast, have patios furnished with tables and chairs for relaxing and looking out among the gardens. Double-French doors open to symmetrically split rooms with a double bed on each side and the bathroom in the middle. Each side is furnished with a dresser and bedside table.
The Pizote Lodge restaurant serves breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The menu changes on a daily basis but always begins with fresh fruit, juice and coffee followed by dishes like pancakes, eggs, and omelets. Lunch and dinner are available upon request for large groups.
