Translated to “The Country Silence Hotel” in English, El Silencio del Campo Hotel provides visitors to Costa Rica with the vacation of their dreams. The well-known resort was founded back in 2005, and the staff has plenty of experience when it comes to making sure guests have the best time. As the name implies, this is a place for relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of modern living. It’s a heavily nature-centric resort, and the owners place special emphasis on the importance of a connection with nature. Indeed, the lush rainforest and tropical gardens that surround the rooms here immerse visitors in the wonder of nature. Those searching for a quiet place away from it all need look no further than this luxurious jungle resort.
The hotel is located near the town of La Fortuna, which is situated to the southeast. Arenal Volcano dominates the skyline of the southwest. It’s right off Highway 142, one of Costa Rica’s major highways; unlike some places in Costa Rica, this hotel is relatively easy to see right off the road.
The hotel does its best to keep the theme of the jungle alive in all of its offerings. Guests can expect ornate two swimming pools that serve both adults and kids; these are designed to reflect the jungle setting, and they don’t appear as artificial as a standard swimming pool. The people here diligently maintain the gardens on the grounds as well, which are populated with weird, cool plants that guests probably have never seen before.
Some will be especially thrilled to find out that the hotel also runs a full-service spa. The place runs special deals for individuals and couples, offering full-body massages, pedicures, and more. Other amenities offered by the hotel include:
- Two swimming pools
- Complimentary breakfast
- Free parking
- Free Wi-Fi across the grounds
- On-site restaurant
- Currency exchange
- Beautiful gardens
- Personalized coffee service
- Playground for kids
The hotel offers 23 rooms in total, which are stylish bungalows that offer guests abundant room and more than enough privacy. Built out of dark paneled wood, these cute homes make the place feel like a jungle village that visitors will never want to leave. Each building can accommodate five people, and all have well-kept gardens and a view of the Arenal Volcano. Signs across the grounds outside of the bungalows ensure that everyone knows where they are and where to go for swimming or other activities. Should handicapped service be needed, there is also a room available that can be accessed with a wheelchair.
While people come to Costa Rica to spend a lot of time outside, there are times when basic amenities are needed – such as air conditioning. The hotel has everyone covered on this front. Room amenities at the hotel include:
- Air conditioning
- Private bathrooms
- King-size bed
- Safe deposit boxes
- Room service
- Dry cleaning and laundry service
- Cable television
This is a place where the owners and staff want to be as nature-friendly and locally balanced as possible. It’s only natural that the hotel thus takes pride in its presentation of local Costa Rican cuisine, and guests can enjoy all the rich and wonderful tastes that cuisine entails. Most ingredients are harvested from the surroundings, ensuring that guests get locally sourced Costa Rican cuisine. There really is nothing better than chomping down on fresh seafood that was just caught while indulging in crisp tortillas and a cold Imperial beer in a jungle setting. La Paz del Campo offers just that, giving guests an unobstructed view of the gardens while they sit at ornate tables.
