Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Resort
Hiking, Horseback Riding, Nature Tours
Surrounded by a spectacular 2,000 acre private biological reserve, just one hour from San José International Airport is the Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel. Thirty-four charming, individual casitas are part of an authentic Costa Rican farm village, overlooking bucolic dairy pastures and pristine cloud forests. Each private casita has a unique open beam ceiling, fireplace, stocked mini-bar with coffee maker and a garden porch or terrace. Romantic honeymoon casitas also feature separate living rooms and large Jacuzzi bathtubs.
On the main hilltop is the Hacienda, where guests enjoy fresh baked breads and pastries at Café El Bosque, a coffee drink in El Mirador, and fine country style dining in the cozy restaurant, El Sendero, with its view of the majestic Arenal Volcano.
At Villa Blanca, relaxation and comfort go hand in hand with the conservation of nature. The Los Angeles Cloud Forest Private Biological Reserve features a comprehensive network of trails, where visitors can see and learn about hundreds of plant and animal species. Horseback riding and an on-site canopy tour top the list of available nature and adventure activities.
