Cataratas Bijagua Lodge


If your looking for something rustic and charming, Cataratas Bijagua Lodge is the place. Cataratas Bijagua Lodge, a family running nature preserving lodge, is located in Bijagua Upala. One of the great attractions of this area is Miravalles Volcano National Park. The Miravalles Volcano is a stratovolcano located in Costa Rica in the province of Guanacaste. At its peak can be detected up to 6 volcanic apparatus, 5 of them aligned NE-SE. Its caldera was formed as a result of several massive eruptions of pyroclastic flow between 0.6 and 1.5 million years ago. Its altitude is 2028 meters. The only documented volcano eruption is a relatively small gas explosion that occurred on the southwestern flank of the same in 1946. It’s a great place for family adventure vacation! You can walk the hanging bridges, see beautiful waterfalls, go horse back riding, go down a 250 meter water slide, hike into a live crater and take a volcanic mud bath.

Owners are dedicated to working hand in hand with nature, so they produce their own electricity through a Hydroelectric “Pelton” Plant. Surrounded by beautiful Miravalles Volcano National Park, Cataratas Bijagua Lodge invites you to share the pristine nature environment, unique contemporary design and ambiance, Responsible Tourism philosophy, and the most outstanding views of Miravalles Volcano National Park, all blended in efficient and friendly service.
