This was the trip of a lifetime for my daughter and me. We both were overwhelmed by the beauty of the country and the many new adventures offered to us. The zip line was a favorite. We can't say enough good things about our guides - knowledgeable, engaged, patient and fun! 

- Mary B.

Dear Danny [guide], your positive attitude and attention to detail allowed me the rare opportunity to completely enjoy a vacation. It is always stressful to travel with kids, however, on this trip I was able to relax and watch my son grow with each of our adventures. You were so much more than a tour guide. You, my friend, are a memory maker. You and this trip will forever be in our hearts. Thank you! 

- Lauren D.

Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Nature Reserve

San Ramon, Costa Rica

Built by former Costa Rican President Rodrigo Carazo Odio and First Lady Estrella Zeledon de Carazo, Villa Blanca is a charming and unique mountain hotel located adjacent to a working dairy farm only one hour away from the San Jose International Airport on a well-paved highway. The Hacienda contains the reception, lobby bar, private movie theatre, conference rooms and country-style restaurant overlooking the village casitas and a panorama of Arenal Volcano. The well-appointed casitas are comfortable replicas of traditional adobe farmhouses complete with whitewashed walls, tile floors, cane ceilings and adobe wood burning fireplaces with either garden porches or private terraces. Resident guides lead nature walks through the adjacent 2,000-acre Los Angeles Cloud Forest Private Biological Reserve, which is excellent for bird watching as well as a variety of other nature tours.

Villa Blanca became the recipient of the highest category of Five Green Leaves in January 2007 by a Certification of Sustainable Tourism (C.S.T.), a level that had not been repeated since 1997. Villa Blanca was also upgraded to 4 stars for all the new hotel improvements and services. Both government certifications were achieved because of the commitment of both the management and hotel staff of Villa Blanca along with the support of their sister hotel, Si Como No Resort in Manuel Antonio.
