Casa Botania is the newest Bed&Breakfast in the beautiful highland countryside about half between the Wilson Botanical Garden/Las Cruces Biological Station and the town of San Vito de Coto Brus.
This small family hotel, run by a young Tico-Belgian couple, is perched on a mountainside in the Linda Vista neighborhood and enjoys a splendid and spacious view of the valley, as well as the primary forest reserve of Las Cruces.
The rooms are spacy and cozy with comfortable, modern interior designs that emphasize natural materials and quality linnen & sheets. Every room has its own private deck and private bathroom with hot water shower. As we enjoy a year round perfect temperature, no airconditioning or heating is necessary. The days are warm and the nights are nice and cool. A bounteous breakfast is served in a buffet-style on a Gaudi-inspired romantic deck from where you can also bird watch or just enjoy the spectacular views.
Casa Botania also offers dinner for their guests. It is a three-course gourmet menu of the day (fish or meat) with a delicious mix of Belgian, Tico and worldy flavors.
If you decide to have dinner elsewhere, the charming town of San Vito is only 5 km away and easily accessible by bus or taxi if you don´t have your own transportation. There are also shops and supermarkets. It is a very authentic mountain village, where you can still experience the pure Costarican daily life and very friendly people.
Even if this area is not so touristy, there are quite some options to go on an excursion. From birdwatching in the Wilson Botanical Gardens, to hiking in the lush green forest, relaxing in nearby hot springs or refreshing in a beautiful waterfal, visiting the local indigenous tribes or just enjoy the spectacular view in your room. Whatever you choose to do here, we´ll bet you will fall in love with this area.
