Welcome to Star Mountain, a cozy Costa Rica Ecolodge built in a 225-acre sanctuary nestled in the hills above Mal Pais.

Come experience the power and beauty of the jungle while relaxing in this cozy eco-lodge. With 4 guest rooms and one house for rent our hotel is intimate and low-impact, and ideal for a medium sized group. It is the perfect spot for nature lovers who want to experience unspoiled nature and tranquility while enjoying all the amenities of fine lodging and dining.


The 225 acre property is a mosaic of forest, jungle, rolling hills, mountains, streams and hiking trails with the endless light sandy beaches and surf of the Pacific Coast only 2 miles away and Cabo Blanco National Park 4 miles away.


Breakfast is made of homemade bread, jams, fresh fruit, juices, cereals, yogurt and eggs. We grow most of the fruits and vegetables on our property and select only the finest products from local merchants and the organic market. We also prepare lunches and dinners.


Star Mountain makes the perfect place from which to explore nearby Cabo Blanco strict nature reserve, the first established National Park of Costa Rica! This 3000 acre reserve is the habitat of a vast array of animal life and the clearly marked trail system takes you through the majestic, lush and colorful foliage of the tropical forest onto the beaches and tidal pools along the coast.
