We are a ecotourism hostel and organic farm run by a Costa Rican family in the small community of Mastatal, Puriscal, San Jose, Costa Rica. The property has been in the family for more than 50 years.

In our 50 hectares of land, we have planted more than 1 000 trees, cacao plants, coffee, black pepper, banana, plantains, pineapple, goyava, soursop trees. and so many more. Our organic food is harvested by ourselves and, if desired, guests can participate in daily activities of the farm.

At Villas Mastatal we offer different types of accommodations for guests, students, volunteers, interns and groups.


The Eco Lodge

In 2008 we opened our doors and started our project with 2 bedrooms. Today, we have 3 individual cabins with a single room, 2 family size rooms with kitchenettes and 2 dormitories for groups with 28 beds to accommodate our guests.

The rooms are made from wood with large windows overlooking the valley of Mastatal and hills of La Cangreja National Park.
