Year Purchased: 1990

About: We were born in Costa Rica of foreign descent, schooled here but lived in Wisconsin for 14 years. Recently we moved back to our farm to host guests at our 2 cabins. The view is so spectacular and big that we wanted to share it this way. We used to have a Bed and Breakfast in San Jose, Costa Rica. This is so much nicer!!

Why Cartago, Costa Rica:
Your hosts are both bilingual Costa Ricans. The area we came to live in is far from the hustle and bustle of the city, we wanted to live in the clean, quiet, colourful mountains of the Turrilaba area. We have owned our farm for 24 years and have been part of the community from the beginning. The persons that work on the farm are locals and have been with us from day one. We offer a completely different outlook of Costa Rican scenery and life.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Our cabins were created to offer our guests the ability to disconnect and completely relax. However, we completely understand that in our digital era it is sometimes necessary to stay in touch with the rest of the world and we therefore offer free high speed wifi in all of our cabins. We have built the cabins with our harvested lumber and are keeping our impact on our environment to a minimum. We recycle, compost and use rain water for all our needs. Each cabin comes equipped with filtered drinking water, a small fridge and coffee maker. Each cabin also has a front porch with breathtaking views of the Turrialba valley and the majestic Turrialba and Irazu volcanos. As the volcano is currently active, you can witness smoke plumes floating from the top of the volcano. We offer horseback rides with our guide. He has developed various routes in the area, all levels of experience. Our most popular ride is the one that takes you into birdwatching areas, sitting on the horse and not having to worry about walking gives you a great opportunity to see so much more. Drink from our natural spring and see how we are a major part of the water shed that supplies the town below us. We offer meals made mostly with organic vegetables and fruits from a local small farmers coop. We can help schedule white water rafting on the pristine Pacuare River. We encourage you to come with enough time to enjoy all we offer. We look forward to having you as a guest.
