Experience the joy of the great outdoors at Finca Rosa Blanca with a fantastic range of adventures to embark upon. One of the must-dos while you are here is to explore the Irazú volcano, an accessible volcano within a few miles of the hotel. You can also hike through the lush cloud forest to Barva Volcano, which sits just above the resort, where you can stand on the continental divide and admire the beautiful wildlife or take a zip line canopy tour. Bijagual Waterfall, which is the tallest in Costa Rica, also makes an adventurous day out, plus you can white-water raft down the Pacuare River for another adrenaline kick! With plenty of places to explore, you won't be short of adventures.
Finca Rosa Blanca is a perfect spot for bird watchers. With over 130 species sighted at the hotel, you won't have to travel far to see some diverse birdlife, though you may wish to hike out to Barva Volcano to see if you can spot the vibrant plumages of the famed resplendent quetzals. In addition, you can also head out to the Tirimbina Biological Reserve to walk the suspended bridge and try to spot sloths and spider monkeys in the trees or Carara National Park to see scarlet macaws. Board a boat ride down the Tárcoles River if you are brave enough to sight one of the country’s largest species, the American crocodile, or take a hike through Braulio Carrillo National Park to see the hummingbirds, toucans and anteaters who reside there. Wherever you go, you are sure to encounter some colourful wildlife!
Dining & Gourmet
Set on its own organic farm and coffee plantation, it’s no surprise that Finca Rosa Blanca is a perfect destination for foodies. Boasting thirty-acres of Arabica coffee plants, you can take a guided tour to discover how some of the world’s best coffee is made, from its cultivation to harvesting and roasting – at the hotel, you can enjoy a complimentary taste of its produce every day with freshly baked cookies! You can also visit the home of Sibú chocolate and head out to the central market to seek out more Costa Rican delicacies or see how vanilla, pepper, cacao and pineapples are grown at a local farm. Join a cooking class to learn how to transform them into delectable dishes or take a seat at the Chef’s Table for a seven-course selection of culinary delights.
Ideal for honeymoons, each unique suite at Finca Rosa Blanca offers an intimate hideaway nestled in lush gardens with fresh mountain breezes. Not much will beat a morning on your own private terrace, where you can sip freshly brewed coffee before heading out on your own adventure. Later, you can unwind with a couple’s massage at the spa before you sit down for a private candlelit feast for two and savour the flavours from the organic garden in heavenly serenity.
Don’t miss the chance to indulge at El Targuá Wellness Retreat. A true gem of the hotel, this boutique retreat offers a number of pampering massages, including hot stone massages, lymphatic drainage and reflexology. You also simply must take the time to try the coffee and chocolate scrub, using organic coffee from the plantation, though you may wish to unwind with a volcanic mud wrap or hydrating facial. You can also join a yoga class or learn some new steps at a Latin Dance class if you want to get active.
