San Jose, central highlands and central valleys: Sueno Azul Hotel

Sueno Azul Hotel

The secluded ranch-style Sueno Azul Hotel is set in the plains of northern Sarapiquí, surrounded by cattle ranches, fruit plantations and lush rainforest, an hour and a half's drive from San José. Whilst it dedicates a large proportion of its land to environmentally friendly programmes, it also offers a variety of enjoyable excursions (payable locally), such as nature tours, riding, canopying, tubing and botanical garden visits. Scattered amongst the grounds and surrounding area are waterfall-fed pools and natural water slides offering a refreshing and memorable swim.

The hotel has a charming family-run history and very friendly staff. A striking feature is the El Corral restaurant, converted from an old stable, which offers both traditional Costa Rican and international food. Built from wood, the hacienda has an authentic feel; the rooms are basic, clean and spacious with rustic touches.
