Centuries before modern cartographers put Cote Lake on the map for globally astonishing reasons, its local renown was legendary.
Historically important as a sacred place for tribal ceremonies and initiation rituals, the remote tropical sanctuary imparts a sense of magic and mystery that visitors find irresistible and unforgettable.
Natural attributes alone make the heart-shaped lake worthy of its name — Cote, or Coter, means peace and love in the Maleku language. In lush rainforest surroundings where native flora and fauna species thrive, Cote Lake is both a popular attraction for bird watching, hiking, horseback riding and water sports and a mystical, meditative retreat with special ecotourism appeal. On all counts, it’s an idyllic setting for the Ecolodge Lago de Coter to offer guests breathtaking views from the mountains above and a restorative escape from everyday demands and distractions.
