Welcome to our eco-lodge, designed for nature lovers seeking an unforgettable experience. Our lodge is located in the heart of a stunning rainforest, surrounded by lush gardens, offering the perfect getaway for those seeking to connect with nature.

We offer three room categories – standard, deluxe, and economics – each designed to cater to different budgets and preferences. Our rooms are comfortable, spacious, and feature beautiful views of the surrounding natural landscape.

Our eco-lodge is more than just a place to stay – it’s an immersive experience. Our guests have free access to our private reserve, spanning over 900 acres of pristine rainforest. You can explore the stunning natural environment, discover exotic flora and fauna, and take in breathtaking views from our three hanging bridges.

Our solar water heating system is just one of the ways we reduce our environmental impact. By harnessing the power of the sun, we’re able to provide our guests with warm water while minimizing our use of fossil fuels and electricity from the grid. Our sewage treatment system uses natural processes to treat and purify wastewater from our composting toilets, ensuring that we don’t pollute the nearby river and that we minimize our water usage.

Our commitment to sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We use eco-friendly practices to minimize our environmental footprint, and we work closely with local communities to promote conservation and preserve the natural beauty of the area.

Join us at our eco-lodge, and experience the perfect harmony between comfort and nature.

Hanging Bridges

Our hanging bridges offer a unique opportunity to experience the rainforest from a different perspective. As you walk across the bridges, you’ll be surrounded by the vibrant greens of the rainforest, and you’ll be able to see wildlife that you wouldn’t be able to spot from the ground.

The bridges are suspended high up in the canopy, giving you a bird’s-eye view of the rainforest below. You’ll feel like you’re walking on air as you cross each bridge, taking in the stunning views and listening to the sounds of the forest.

But it’s not just about the scenery – the hanging bridges also offer an opportunity to get close to the rainforest’s inhabitants. You might spot monkeys swinging through the trees, colorful birds perched on branches, or even a sloth snoozing high up in the canopy.

Our knowledgeable guides will be with you every step of the way, pointing out fascinating facts about the rainforest and its inhabitants. They’ll help you spot wildlife that you might have missed on your own and provide insights into the complex ecosystem of the rainforest.

Don’t miss out on this unforgettable rainforest adventure – book your visit to Tirimbina today and experience the magic of our hanging bridges.
