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.”
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 3 remaining cloud forests in Costa Rica.
Our cloud forest is home to countless plants, orchids, trees, and wildlife – and more than 400 species of birds, making Villa Blanca one of the top Costa Rican birding “hot spots” on eBird’s global mapping system.
Villa Blanca has 3 different casita types on the grounds. They’re known as casitas (little houses) because each is separate from the next, offering you the highest level of privacy and tranquility. While amenities vary depending on casita-type, each comes with wood or vaulted cane ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, rustic rocking chairs, queen-sized or twin beds, and accommodations for 2-4 guests. Every casita comes furnished with a wardrobe closet and bedside tables with reading lamps, and adjoins an ensuite bathroom with a shower (or optional jacuzzi) with forest views.
Made with all-natural ingredients grown in our own greenhouse or farmed locally, our cuisine is a fusion of traditional regional dishes and popular Costa Rican classics. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily.
“Ingredient purity, freshness, and sustainable farming practices are important in everything we use to make our food.”
Come to a serene destination within our cloud forest hotel where you’ll restore balance, soothe the senses, and increase your well-being. Experience the knowing hands of professional massage therapists, trained to put mind, body, and spirit at ease.
Imagine the setting. Green rolling hills and dairy pastures that lead you up a rustic country road to our cloud forest hotel. Lush cloud forest views welcome you and your guests. The melodies of tropical birds create the perfect soundtrack for a destination wedding in Costa Rica. This is Villa Blanca, winner of the 2021 International Award for “Best Costa Rican Wedding.”
Overlooking the cloud forest on a green, grassy knoll is Mariana, an historic and iconic wedding chapel inspired by 17th century Rome.
Villa Blanca’s cloud forest hotel is an ideal destination for groups who love nature; or need a transformative setting with the right support and facilities for their special event.
