Finca Rosa Blanca


A charming stayclose to San José

Overlooking the Central Valley in the green hills just north of San José, Finca Rosa Blanca is a boutique ecohotel and organic coffee farm that is a welcoming place to spend a night or two when flying from the capital.

The main building is unique and quirky with two elegant master suites and 11 junior suites and wonderfully welcoming staff. It’s also one of Costa Rica’s most sustainable properties, the first to achieve full marks in the country’s ‘Certification for Sustainable Tourism’, which you can learn about on a fascinating behind the scenes tour. The spa, gardens and ‘field to cup’ coffee tour are also must do experiences here.

When it comes to dining, you’re invited to indulge in four-course dinners of 'nouvelle Costa Rican cuisine. Organic fruits and vegetables grown mostly on site are the stars of the menu which changes daily.
