Casa Botania

Casa Botania, Costa Rica

Casa Botania is a Bed & Breakfast close to Central America’s largest Botanical Garden: Wilson Botanical Garden. This cozy little hotel is situated on the slopes of an enormous mountain ridge in southern Costa Rica and has endless beautiful views over the
Talamanca valley, as well as over primary rain forest. The rooms have a modern equipment made of natural materials, and have each their own character. The rich breakfast is served on an unique Gaudi-inspired terrace, designed by a local artist. At a distance of only 5 km from the hotel you will find San Vito, a charming mountain village founded by Italians in the fifties, where you can find several restaurants.

Do you come here to relax, or are you looking for adventure while discovering unknown spots in the authentic part of Costa Rica? Or do you want to sniff some culture and history of this country with local Indian tribes?
This area is also very good for bird watching. Only in Casa Botania’s garden we registered 225 species of birds. We have a bird guide on site who will bring you to the best spots. In the evening you can join us at the table for a delicious three course dinner.


Casa Botania is situated 1,5 km from Wilson Botanical Garden, in the direction richting of the town of San Vito.


For people wanting to discover the authentic Costa Rica to find the less touristic places, the southern part of the country is really to be recommended. Here you can spot the quetzal in the more or less undiscovered La Amistad International Park, take a bath in a natural hot spring, explore the caves etc. During all those unique excursions you will not meet many other tourists. Because this region exports a lot of coffee all over the World there are also interesting coffee tours, followed by coffee tasting. If you are looking for even more adventure there is a beautiful trip to local hot springs close to the Panamanian border.
