About this listing
#1 B&B in Atenas as reviewed on TripAdvisor
Lovely rooms nestled in extravagant tropical gardens
Friendly Canadian hosts with insiders travel advise
Large well maintained pool
WiFi throughout property
Centrally located to be near the airport and many of Costa Rica's best attractions, yet a world away from the tourist bustle, Eden Atenas is the perfect headquarters for your Costa Rican visit. Here you will be tempted to just relax by the pool, enjoy spectacular tropical gardens (the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar), watch Toucans or Mot Mots, and be wowed by the best breakfast in the country. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching sunrise over the volcano, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden.
The only complaint we ever hear, is "If I'd only known, I would have stayed longer"

Hammocks, rockers, zero-gravity lounge chairs and secret benches - Eden Atenas has literally dozens of ways and places to kick back and chill. From a hammock for three, looking out over the valley, to wooden loungers tucked in the secret orchid garden, to zero-gravity chairs by the pool which let you forget anything but the stars above, to traditional Costa Rican rockers lining the veranda outside your room, to a simple plank bench beneath an orange tree, why not spend a day just moving from one spot to another - then try and pick a favorite!The Skies - No matter the time of year, the skies of Eden Atenas are life changing. Whether it is watching the dawn illuminate iconic volcanoes, being enchanted by the unique tropical cloud colors painted by sunsets over our valley forest, being thrilled by tropical storms in the distance (or overhead!), or simply falling in love with the southern stars laid across a velvet cloth of night, you will never forget the skies.
Interaction with Guests
Avtar and Jan, the hosts are available for help with questions and travel advice
The Weather - Listed by National Geographic as "The World's Best Climate", Atenas, Costa Rica is a mecca for warm weather lovers who wish to avoid the scorching heat and humidity of the beaches (they are still close enough to visit). Feel free to leave your sweaters at home.
Jan, Avtar, Suzen and Community- In addition to offering a guest house, Eden Atenas is a small community of resident and non-resident members dedicated to sustainable practices, creative expression, and holding a small piece of this planet for Peace. Whether you choose to join us for Sunday meditation, grab your mat for some yoga, spend and hour helping out in the organic food gardens, or just hang out and chat about the "deeper" things in life, the community or Eden Atenas welcomes you.
Central, yet off the track, location - Only 25 minutes from Costa Rica's main airport, Eden Atenas is both central and a world apart. While many of Costa Rica's top attractions are less than an hour away - La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Poas Volcano, the Capital City of San Jose, the beaches of Jaco, Zoo Ave Wildlife Rescue Center, and two National Parks - Eden Atenas is a world removed from the tourist crowds and hustle. Staying at Eden Atenas lets you see the sights while allowing you the experience of a private vacation villa.
