Costa Rica´s most relaxing hotel is El Cafetal Inn bed and breakfast. The hotel is just 20 minutes from Costa Rica´s international airport, Juan Santamaría. It is a quiet hotel on a coffee farm in Atenas, Costa Rica. National Geographic named Atenas, Costa Rica as the place with the world´s best climate.The hotel is a spectacular two story house with rounded, glass corner alcoves overlooking sugar fields with views of the cities of Alajuela and part of Heredia, as well as the three volcanoes: Poás, Barva and Irazú. The travel guide book “Costa Rica Natural Destinations” says the hotel has “More private sitting areas to JUST BE than ROOMS!” Just sit in one of the hotel´s many outdoor patios or lookout spots overlooking Costa Rica´s peaceful Central Valley with splendid mountain vistas, the green river canyon and the rich coffee plantation. Anywhere you sit you´ll be enchanted by this tranquil tropical setting and the soothing sounds of Costa Rican nature.Sometimes you´ll see a group of birds, or hear the jungle call of seasonal howler monkeys who feed in the trees right outside the hotel. You can see them from your windows and, when you´re still, you can hear the gentle sound of one of Costa Rica´s delightful rivers.
