Casitas Tenorio B&B – Costa Rica

Why do we travel around Costa Rica? Easy answer: to experience its nature!

Many just come for the beach and waves, and that’s great, but Costa Rica has so much more to offer, the forest is one of the most impressive sights to experience in this country. In the northern plains of Costa Rica there’s a small town called Bijagua, settled in the middle of two volcanoes, Tenorio and Miravalles.  And in the foothills of the Tenorio Volcano, nestle in an abundant forest, you will find Casitas Tenorio B&B.

This enchanting bed and breakfast is run by the Varela-Kelly family, a lovely Costa Rican and Australian couple, and their two daughters.

Casitas Tenorio offers 6 beautiful casitas around their property, all private and equipped with everything you need. Perfect for whole families or couples, each casita offers a different design with beautiful and natural materials.

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful place we were taken back by its nature.

The reception, that works as the breakfast and lounge area, is an open structure that showcases all the beauty of the area with lots of trees where birds and squirrels play around giving you a show that you might have only seen on TV.

We were also very delighted with the warm welcome from the staff, Michelle and Lorena, they shared with us important information about the hotel and the area, so we were very excited.

One of the best things about Casitas Tenorio B&B it’s their rooms or casitas (as they are known as), as we said before they are all spread around the property, so you feel very secluded from the other guests, which is awesome because you get the chance to relax and feel in the middle of nowhere.

We stayed in Casita El Volcan, the perfect name because we had a beautiful view of the Miravalles Volcano from our balcony, and every morning we had an awesome show of toucans and monkeys playing in the trees.

While you are staying here you can visit their farm like we did, Jonathan was our guide and he was incredible. He took us to meet all the animals, chickens, rabbits, sheep, cows and horses. We even got the chance to meet their favorite pet, a baby sheep named Leo, he was super friendly and liked us very much because we fed him his morning snack. After visiting the farm, we had the most delicious breakfast, accompanied by multiples birds and squirrels playing and eating bananas in the trees, the perfect morning.

Another great thing about Casitas Tenorio B&B is that you can use it as your hub to do many things around the area, you can book bird watching tours, visit the beautiful Llanos de Cortez waterfall, explore the Caño Negro wildlife refuge, go on a night frog tour and see them in their natural habitat and of course visit the famous Rio Celeste inside the Volcano Tenorio National Park, these are only a few of activities, but you can do so much more and all within a couple of hours drive from the hotel.

Casitas Tenorio B&B has become one of our favorites places to stay in Costa Rica, they have created an oasis.

With their delicious food and incredibly attentive staff you’ll never want to leave, you will feel part of the family, wanting to come back every chance you get.
