Interaction with Guests
We offer a really personalised expereince. We only have three rooms and this allows us to share with our guests and have conversations together over breakfast. We also enjoy walking around the property with guests and invite our guests to participate in farming activities, such as milking the cows and feeding the chickens, with us. We like to talk to our guests, but we also are sure to respect your privacy and allow you time to relax.
Bijagua is still a very traditional and 'authentic' Costa Rican rural town. Many families are involved in farming to make a living. The dense rainforest surrounds the town. You might see people riding horses around the countryside and friendly neighbours might wave as you drive past. Welcome to the 'real' Costa Rica. We are really close to Rio Celeste which is located in the Volcano Tenorio National Park. Come and experience authentic rural Costa Rica!
There are buses that stop in Bijagua, contact us for more information. There is not a public bus to the National Park. There are private taxis that operate in the area if you don't have a car.

Please respect our family and our property. We are a quiet B&B and hope that our guests are quiet and well behaved.
The eco-lodge was great, directions were perfect and we had an awesome stay. Would have liked to stay longer but couldn't. The pictures are a fair representation of the apartment. We had a perfect breakfast made for us and watched the hummingbirds whilst eating. There was also a sloth on the grounds. Thanks Pip and Donald!! :) we had a great stay.
There are simply not enough good things to say about Casitas Tenorio. First: it was easy to find even in the dark because they did such a good job with signage on the roads. Secondly: we were greeted so graciously by our host Antony when we arrived, and then by Eli with breakfast in the morning. The breakfast was beyond spectacular and we loved visiting with Eli. She was so helpful with information about the wildlife in the area. We spent the afternoon at Rio Celeste (which was very blue by the way, even in the rainy season), then when we returned Eli and Anthony helped us make reservations at our next location and then sent us on our way with a piece of fruit.
Our casita was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The shower was definitely a highlight - it felt like an outside shower, it was beautiful.
If you're looking for wifi, you'll find it at the reception. Otherwise the casitas have no wifi or tv (seriously, get unplugged).
There are howler monkeys and sloths on the property as well as all the fun farm animals.
But as cute and comfortable the place is, the best part of Casitas Tenorio is the people there. We felt like family!
La estancia fue muy cool. La casita estaba limpia y equipada con todo lo q necesitamos. Las camas eran comodas. El desayuno espectacular y nos llevaron a visitar los alrededores donde vimos bananos, un perezoso, distintos tipos de platanos, la flor de ilan ilan y nos cortaron cana de azucar. Una estancia totalmente recomendable y a la que volveria si tengo ocasion.
While our plans changed and we were unable to make it to this b&b they were very understanding to our situation.
Loved staying here with Ely and Anthony. Amazing shower with glass wall brings nature inside . Very comfortable bed. Lovely porch. Lots of privacy. And the breakfast is incredible!! Better still are my hosts Ely and Anthony. Pip was also very easy to work with for the reservation. Location perfect for hiking to Rio Celeste, and a wonderful stop btwn Liberia airport and Arenal. Cute town of Bijugua offers grocery stores and restaurants. Rough road uphill.
We stayed here in May and we absolutely loved the place. The Casita were nice and clean, with a comfortable bathroom and a cozy porch. They have a beautiful garden, were they grow pineapples and passion fruit, hold cows, chickens, horses and a pig. My two year old daughter loved to visit the animals. We went on the trails on the property and had a great view. The hostess was extremely friendly and went out of her way to accommodate us:) we had two wonderful homecooked dinners there and splendid breakfasts. I truly recommend this place and would love to come back.
We enjoyed our stay at Casitas Tenorio. Anthony and Elizabeth were gracious hosts and the breakfasts Elizabeth cooked were the best meals we had in CR. The farm is an enjoyable place to stay and provides access to the Tenorio Volcano national park about 7KM drive away. The WiFi is not usable inside the casitas and so is not as convenient as it could be. The washer and dryer that are advertised is actually a paid laundry service. Outside of those two issues the descriptions are accurate and we highly recommend Casitas Tenorio.
