Tranquil resort set within a working coffee plantation, offering the allure of the Costa Rican countryside with the convenience of proximity to the airport.

Costa Rica is famous for its coffee and enchanting countryside, so where better to appreciate its bucolic charm than the cheerful Xandari Resort set within the beautiful gardens of a working coffee plantation. The pleasures of this rural setting come without sacrificing convenience: San José airport is just a 20-minute drive away, making this a perfect base for those wishing to avoid a stay in the chaotic capital.
The resort has won several awards including one for its architecture. Each of its cluster of villas has its own private terrace and is boldly decorated, with an emphasis on bright and cheerful colours that reflect the country's tropical character.

Xandari also makes the most of its charming countryside location with huge valley views from the restaurant and a number of walking trails within the grounds, including one to a picturesque waterfall. The weather can be particularly agreeable in this part of the country so you may well want to spend most of your time outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
