CENTRAL COSTA RICA

A Cloud Forest Hotel + Retreat

RESET YOURSELF

Up, up in the sky.

Play Video

Perched above a pristine cloud forest reserve in central Costa Rica, Villa Blanca is a boutique wellness hotel that transcends the ordinary. It is a place where you can walk in the clouds, and skies paint an ever-changing canvas.

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? A couple planning your destination wedding? An event planner looking for a transformative locale for your next retreat?

Consider Villa Blanca. Less than 90 minutes from the capitol San José, we are home to one of the most biodiverse ecosystems, and one of few remaining cloud forests in Costa Rica.
