Five minutes from the lovely town of San Ramón, our modern, teak and concrete B&B is nestled in the coffee plantations, overlooking the mountains to the east. We offer our guests fresh, Costa Rican-style breakfasts with our home-grown organic coffee.

The space

Welcome to Casa Amanecer!

A full-service Bed and Breakfast in the lovely little town of San Ramon, Alajuela, Costa Rica.We invite the Costa Rican traveler into our teak and concrete abode, nestled in the beautiful coffee-planted mountains just ten minutes north of San Ramon.

The name “Casa Amanecer” means “Sunrise House”. The rustic modern structure (published in architecture magazine Su Casa, March 2009) faces east, where amazing sunrises may be taken in, along with the breath-taking panoramic view of the mountains.

Come relax, hook up to Wi-fi, peruse our library and get a taste of the best that Costa Rica has to offer. We offer vegetarian meals and unique tour packages. (Meat dishes served upon request.)

It is our belief that one can live comfortably while at the same time care for our Earth. We at Casa Amanecer are very conscious of our health and our environment.

We are looking forward to hosting you!

Great house with view over the countryside. Very comfortable room with a delicious home cooked breakfast in the morning by Elena and team!

Casa Amanecer exceeded our expectations. It's a beautiful, modern, and eco-friendly spot with a spectacular view of the valley. Mornings here were the best-- we woke up to bird songs and beautiful sunrises we watched from Casa Amanecer's best feature-- it's patio. We enjoyed delicious coffee and amazing breakfasts prepared by a friendly and attentive staff. It was the perfect place to begin and end busy days exploring Costa Rica's central valley.

We were looking for a tranquil place to unwind and relax after a week of traveling. Casa Amanecer B&B was just that. I would highly recommend staying here and wish we had booked 2 nights. Eating a delicious breakfast on the veranda was the perfect way to start the day. We enjoyed talking to the other guests. Helen does a great job of running the B&B. She is very thoughtful. We would definitely stay here again if flying into or out of San Jose.

The B&B on the mountain was a beautiful way to start our Costa Rican vacation. The setting is relaxing and serene.

Casa Amanecer is such a wonderful place to stay. Helen is so amazing. I think she can read wishes. She made us a tasty breakfast when we arrived much earlier than expected. One friend said 'she is gold' and yes she is! The room is very nice like the whole house. We absolutely recommend this place.

We had a great experience at Casa Amanecer! Our host, Helen was so accommodating and friendly. When we had a very early side trip to Manuel Antonio Park planned, she had coffee and breakfast waiting for us a 6am. The rooms were clean and comfortable (loved the shower). The climate in San Ramon is virtually perfect! Chris, you built a gem!

Loved staying at Casa Amencer. Beautiful home, yard, and host who greeted us, Javier. We had a great time talking with Javier and he and Christopher did everything possible to help make alternative arrangements when we thought we would have to extend our stay due to the volcanic eruption. Everything about this place was amazing.

We are Luisa Valdivia, from Peru, and Christopher Panzer, from the US, both former Habitat for Humanity employees. We built our teak and concrete home, with the purpose of serving as a bed and breakfast in the centrally located town of San Ramón in the province of Alajuela — coffee country!

Our friend and former coworker Helen and her sister live on site and take very good care of our guests. They are Costa Rican and know their country and culture like no one else and are very happy to welcome and introduce our guests to their lovely part of the world. Helen also speaks English and some French.

I (Christopher) and my wife and two children live in Maryland in the USA. I will confirm your reservation and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!
