Simple Luxuries. Sustainable Practices. 

Situated in a quiet town of Playa Avellanas, the Drift Away Eco Lodge is a tranquil oasis where you can unwind and connect with nature. The lodge is located in close proximity to some of Guanacaste’s most beautiful beaches known for great swimming and excellent surfing.
The grounds offer a lush green escape and feature lots of great facilities that guests can enjoy during their stay.

Their Eco Story

  • At Drift Away Eco Lodge we care about the environment and strive to make a positive impact on the local communities of Playa Avellanas and Playa Negra. We aim to adhere to high sustainability standards in our day to day operations.

  • The majority of the supplies used in the construction of the lodge are locally sourced. We used natural recycled materials where possible and supplemented them with low VOC products to minimize the effect of harmful gasses on the environment surrounding our lodge.

  • We look to minimize our impact on the environment by conserving water and electricity while ensuring a comfortable stay for our guests.

  • To preserve the land and it’s fragile ecosystem, we use only biodegradable and natural cleaning products throughout our property. We provide biodegradable natural toiletries to all of our guests and encourage their usage during them during their stay.

  • The pool uses a UV and ionization cleaning and filtration process to minimize the use of harmful chemicals, making it safe for guests of all ages.

  • Our property is free of single-use plastic, and we work hard on recycling and composting as much of our waste as possible.

  • We hire local staff where possible and equip them with the necessary training, support, and education to help them gain new skills and relevant experiences.

  • Throughout their stay, guests have an opportunity to minimize their own carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the community, be it by using our free bikes to get around the area, visiting local restaurants, or buying from local artisans.

  • We are always searching for ways to run our business more consciously and more responsibly. Our sustainability agenda just keeps on growing!
