Peace in the Cloud Forests

In the heart of Costa Rica, a short way north of San José and embraced by rainforest clad volcanoes, El Silencio is a blissful retreat at which to unwind. If you can leave the views from your hot tub and yoga deck behind, explore the surrounding jungle on foot, bike and horseback, finding refreshing waterfalls and spotting multi-coloured birdlife. Neighbouring Juan Castro Blanco and the Poas Volcano National Parks are also ripe for adventure and home to fascinating wildlife.
