The Tropical Gardens and the Birds who live here - Eden Atenas' gardens are the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching mot-mots and toucans eating the fruits of one of the 12 species of palms whilst relaxing by the pool, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden.
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.
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.
The Peace - Nestled in a valley of tropical forest, surrounded by amazing gardens, removed from the cities and far from the tourist trail, the most disturbing thing you will encounter here are the raucous flocks of parrots careening overhead. Oh, and maybe a gecko or two (they're considered good luck!)

We recently stayed with Jan and Avtar at Eden Atenas. We had a wonderful experience. The gardens are truly amazing and so beautiful. Our room was very nice and very comfortable. We appreciated being able to check in early and made to feel very welcome. Enjoyed meeting our hosts Jan & Avtar and their two German Shepherds, Max and Lily! They gave us suggestions on where to eat and helped with directions. Jan served us a wonderful breakfast with fresh produce from their garden. We enjoyed our stay at Eden Atenas very much! Thank you!
The Eden Atenas guest house is a perfect place. Its only 25 min drive from Santamaria Airport. Nice big and clean rooms with the best view. A clean pool and a beautifull garden. The people are really friendly and serve the best breakfast!
