About Us

The Tranquility of The Jungle , Just Steps From The Beach

The new Havana Lodge in Mal Pais, Costa Rica is a vibrant eco-friendly property that blends rustic charm with fantastic amenities, located just a minute from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Relax and let the hours slip away at our lagoon-like infinity pool, surrounded by wild tropical gardens. Watch the colorful birds, playful monkeys and iguanas from your hammock and breathe in the fresh ocean air. Enjoy a sunset barbecue with friends or make dinner in our fully equipped guest kitchen. We are just a 5 minute drive from the bustling town of Santa Teresa, where you can find supermarkets, world-class surfing, boutique shops and an international dining scene. Our lush mountainside location is on the edge of Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve, home to exotic animals and a secluded white sand beach.

Our spacious suites and bungalows are all fully air-conditioned with private baths and hot water, each decorated in a unique style inspired by the nearby tropical forest, the ocean, Costa Rica, Cuba and Mexico. Linens, towels and daily housekeeping are included. Excellent wifi is available throughout the rooms and common areas of the lodge. A complimentary breakfast is served from 7:30am to 9am each day.

The multilingual staff at Havana Lodge are happy to provide information on the best sights and activities in the surrounding area. Yoga, surf lessons and surf trips, horseback riding, hiking, ATV tours and fishing can be arranged by the tour desk, at no additional charge. We also offer spa treatments onsite, as well as private chef services, childcare, additional housekeeping, airport shuttle, storage and dry cleaning.

The Neighborhood

Located in the lush southwestern corner of the Nicoya Peninsula, the laid-back neighborhood of Mal Pais is one of Costa Rica’s top destinations for unspoiled nature and world-class waves. Just minutes from the booming surf town of Santa Teresa, this quiet village spread along a rambling costal road feels like it’s a million miles away from everything. Five minutes north of Havana Lodge is the “crossroads,” where you can find banks, surf shops and restaurants, and the road leading to Santa Teresa. To the south of the property, the Mal Pais road ends at a local fishing hamlet and Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve.
