Why Stay At Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn
Finca Rosa Blanca, on a coffee plantation in the central highlands of Costa Rica, is an ideal escape for foodies as well as outdoorsy types.
Chosen by the Rainforest Alliance as a standard-setter of sustainable tourism in 2010, Finca Rosa Blanca, in the central highlands of Costa Rica, offers luxe accommodations without the ecological guilt. Coffee lovers can wake up to a hot cup, while learning the intricacies of growing and roasting organic coffee on the resort's 30-acre farm. Other activities include horseback riding to the Barva Volcano, taking a dance lesson from the neighborhood folkloric ballet group, or exploring the waterfalls in nearby Braulio Carrillo National Park. As expected, the restaurant serves organic Costa Rican fare sourced from its own gardens and surrounding farms—don't miss the pejibaye soup.
Schedule a complimentary tour of the hotel's coffee plantation at 8 a.m. and you'll beat the midday heat.
For a small fee, the hotel provides transportation to and from the airport.
Arrive at Juan Santamaría Airport (SJO) which is approximately 3 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 20 minutes of travel time.Santa Bárbara de Heredia, Heredia, Costa Rica
