Home away from home...
Franz started Pachamama in 1994 with a lot of love for details and a big heart for nature and wildlife. Everything was kept as natural as possible. Still, the lodge is a place where you can connect to nature and their roots - to Pachamama itself. It’s a place where you feel like home.
Our vision is to offer a truly immersive experience that allows our guests to connect with the natural beauty and cultural brightness of Costa Rica. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience that combines adventure, relaxation and cultural exploration. We strive to give our guests the most unique and authentic stay that highlights the natural beauty and the cultural richness of Mal Pais. We want our guests to leave not only rejuvenated and inspired but also with a deeper appreciation for Costa Rica's nature.

“Beautiful place. Nice people. We stayed at Pachamama for four weeks during our time in Costa Rica and we loved it! Pachamama was such a nice place. Super relaxed. We really loved the feeling to be in the jungle and so close to the most beautiful beach with tide pools. The staff is amazing and so welcoming. I really recommend to spend some days here, especially if you want a more relaxed time in beautiful Mal Pais!.”
