RESET YOURSELF

Up, up in the sky.

Perched above a pristine cloud forest reserve in central Costa Rica, Villa Blanca is a cloud forest hotel that transcends the ordinary. It is a place where you can walk in the clouds, and feel the gentle swirl of mist and mystery surround you. Where skies paint an ever-changing canvas (and destination weddings in Costa Rica take on new meaning). But more than just a place, Villa Blanca is an experience; one that will renew you, maybe even change you.

There is, as our guests like to say, “magic in the air.”

THE SETTING

A nature lover's paradise, just off the beaten path.

Are you an avid cloud gazer, birder, photographer, or just someone who loves the great outdoors? Or perhaps a couple planning your destination wedding in Costa Rica. You’ll be captivated by what’s here. Less than 90 minutes from the capitol San José, at 4500 feet above sea level and spread across a 2000-acre reserve, the Los Angeles Cloud Forest is one of the most biodiverse ecosystems; and one of the last remaining cloud forests in Costa Rica.

Villa Blanca’s cloud forest hotel is home to thousands of plants, trees, and orchids – and more than 350 species of birds, including toucans, flycatchers, and hummingbirds; and the rarest of all, the Resplendent Quetzal.
