Casa Amanecer Bed & Breakfast
One of Costa Rica’s newest and freshest B&Bs, we offer a slightly different take on vacationing in Costa Rica. Sustainability is our motto, and that encompasses everything from how the house was designed and built, to the vegetarian meals we serve, to our day-to-day operations, which include recycling and composting. We also have our community in mind - we are helping those less fortunate in San Ramon and Costa Rica by supporting our beloved Habitat for Humanity Costa Rica.
We serve organic vegetarian breakfasts and endless supplies of local organic coffee. When you look out your window you will enjoy the beautiful mountains in the distance from whence that coffee came. Spanish classes, trip planning, wi-fi, lunches, dinners and professional massage are also offered. And when the banana plants in the garden are full of ripe fruit, you can help yourself to as many as you can eat.
The teak and concrete house was featured in the March 2009 issue of Costa Rican architecture magazine SU CASA. The focus of this issue is sustainable architecture. We have the article posted on our Web site if you are interested in reading more on this subject.
Located just 5 minutes outside of the quaint, agricultural town of San Ramon, Casa Amanecer lies in the coffee-covered hills of San Juan, en route to the hot springs of La Fortuna, Volcan Arenal, and the Nicaraguan border. We are also on the way to the Monteverde cloud forests, and some of the most beautiful Pacific beaches Costa Rica has to offer. Too many options? Contact us and we’ll be glad to help you plan your trip, even if you don’t include us in your itinerary.
Locally, we have an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables available at the farmers’ market. We offer sugar cane production (trapiche) tours, coffee production tours, trout fishing, mountain biking, horse back riding, cloud forests, zip lines and an amazing waterfall/recreation area to visit.
We are former Habitat for Humanity employees and offer our guests opportunities to do volunteer work with Habitat Costa Rica. There are various local projects in the area and any participation by volunteers helps lower the cost of the home. The Habitat homes are made of concrete blocks or panels, so there is always a variety of chores to be done, such as digging trenches, tying rebar, mixing concrete moving materials, building, concrete work, painting and roofing. Just let us know in advance and we can set something up for you.
Come stay with us and share a bit of our lives. Sit with us on the veranda and we can tell you a little about the area. Check out our library of books and listen to some Latin American music. We are doing this because we love people and always want to make new friends. Children are welcome.
