At the Chachagua Rainforest Hotel, we experience the natural wonders our planet has to offer daily, and we believe it is each of our responsibility to protect the environment with sustainable solutions. Through dedication and innovative thinking, we have established eco-friendly practices and environmental programs that offer a paradigm of sustainability in the heart of Costa Rica.
Chachagua Rainforest Hotel & Hacienda is a working ranch surrounded by its own Biological Station. We organically grow our own crops including herbs, tomatoes, lettuce, yucca and plantains. The organic fertilizer used to grow our crops is produced from our compost using residuals from the kitchen. We also produce eggs, milk, and homemade cheese, butter and sour cream. Discarded waste from the ranch is used in our bio-digestor, producing Metan Gas which fuels the kitchen.
We also have a reforestation program, involving our guests and local kids in our efforts to help the environment. Our goal is to plant more than 500 trees per month, using only native species.
We invite you to join us at Chachagua Rainforest Hotel and learn more about Costa Rica, sustainability, and what you can do to make a difference.
