Our commitments

With almost 200 hectares of rainforest, El Silencio Lodge & Spa establishes a biological corridor between Costa Rica’s Juan Castro Blanco and Poas Volcano National Parks. For the owner Karin Zürcher, an uninterrupted terrain was paramount, allowing the cloud forest’s flora and fauna to thrive and enchant visitors.

In addition, the ingredients he uses in his kitchen are homegrown on site. 90% of the vegetables and 60% of the fruits served to guests come from the estancias’s 1,000m² organic kitchen garden. There's a plentiful supply of other organic produce too: breakfast omelets are made with fresh eggs from the estate's hens; milk is delivered by Margarita, the hotel’s resident cow; cheeses are prepared by artisans from the neighboring area.
