El Silencio Lodge & Spa is an eco-luxury hotel that showcases the best of Costa Rica’s tropical cloud forest. Silencio (Spanish for "silence"), befits a destination where daily stress is hushed by nature’s melodic symphonies. This upscale Costa Rican hotel features premium facilities on 500 private acres: emerald landscapes and waterfalls, farm-to-table cuisine, a select spa and an exhilarating eco-adventure park. El Silencio is perfect for dream honeymoons, weddings, family vacations and wellness holidays. It is the first Relais & Châteaux destination in Central America.

This property is an eco-friendly property, and include a "Plant Your Tree" complimentary ceremony, where you can plant trees to help bring back the beautiful Quetzal birds to the region. You can also wander along paths that trace a pristine creek to find soothing waterfalls. If you are more of an adrenaline-junkie, you can zip-line over the forest canopy and rappel down the face of roaring waterfalls. 

After all the fun and adventure, meet the property's Sommelier, who will guide you through a fun session to learn about wine and the secrets of food pairing. Finally, you can settle down and savor a romantic torch-lit dinner in a private forest-surrounded setting and live a storybook romance!
