Villa Blanca Hotel is one of a kind in Costa Rica. This small hotel sits on 75 acres amidst the Los Angeles Biological Reserve and to say the least, it is in a world of its own between San Jose and the Arenal Volcano. The ecosystem it sits in is known as the cloudforest and is one of the more unique and biological diverse ecosystems in the tropics.

Villa Blanca was formerly owned by an Ex-President of Costa Rica, Rodrigo Carazo Odio. The design of the property is set up with a traditional hacienda feeling where you will be welcomed into a home-like environment with service that will make you feel like family. The rooms are separatecasitas that are staggered around the main hacienda home all with views of the lush tropical cloud forest. On a clear day you can see the Arenal Volcano in the distance. The grounds are filled with nature trails and there is even a replica of an old Roman Chapel from the 14th century that is often used for weddings.

This is the perfect spot if you come in on a mid afternoon flight allowing you to make a 50 minute drive from the San Jose Airport and enjoy the lush cloudforest on your day of arrival and be half way to the Arenal Volcano. This is also a very nice spot for couples to visit. The hotel has one of the most amazing restaurants and its cool mountain feel with a fire place in the rooms makes it a nice fit for honeymooners wanting to mix up their beach and adventure part of the trip.

Reasons to Go:
