Finca Rosa Blanca is an upmarket boutique lodge in a wonderful hillside location above San Jose, in the Central Valley area of Costa Rica. This family-run, eco-friendly property is surrounded by rainforest and national park, and commands sweeping views of the surrounding countryside from its elevated setting. Featuring striking architecture and original artworks and murals, this elegant and characterful retreat offers 14 individually decorated suites, a restaurant and a beautiful infinity pool, all nestled within nine acres of verdant tropical estate which also incorporates an organic coffee plantation. It’s a peaceful location, yet only 20 minutes from San Jose’s international airport.

Communal areas include an open-air bar and restaurant with candlelit tables and spectacular views over the Central Valley. Focussing on international dishes and local specialties, the menu is based on organic ingredients grown on the estate. There’s a library stocked with books and DVDs, and a small spa offering beauty treatments and massages. A delightful spring-fed infinity pool surrounded by loungers has lovely panoramic views of rainforest and distant volcanos. The owners are committed to sustainable tourism and the hotel promotes an eco-friendly ethos including use of solar power and extensive recycling. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.

Activities include tours of the coffee plantation, birdwatching and trekking in the surrounding unspoilt highlands. Nearby excursions include visits to Barva Volcano which is located on a ridge above the estate and offers incredible views as well as some strenuous hiking trails.

The accommodation comprises 14 individually designed and decorated spacious suites located either in the main building or within the grounds. Junior suites sleep up to three guests in one bedroom with a sofa bed in the living room, and a two-bed suite can accommodate four. Spacious ‘master’ suites sleep up to five, whilst for larger groups it’s possible to interconnect two suites to make a private ‘villa’ in order to accommodate six guests. All suites have a king size bed, a lounge area and a traditional bathroom with shower, and most come with a Jacuzzi bathtub. All units have telephones, hot drink facilities (including coffee grown on the estate), a minibar, and ceiling fans but no air conditioning; outside, there’s a tranquil and leafy private patio or veranda with spectacular rural views.

Children are extremely welcome at the Finca and although there are no specific facilities for little ones, the extensive grounds and lovely pool will appeal to guests of all ages. Two interconnecting suites can be privately booked as a one unit ‘villa’ which sleeps up to six, meaning plenty of space for larger families.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
