What you’ll find at our inn

We are a Costa Rican family that aims to make your dreams come true.

CatarataWe live in the heart of the mountain, proud to be a family 100% dedicated to protecting and conserving this special natural area.

We have been living on this ecological farm since April 27, 1957, on lands that I inherited from my father Antonio Miranda in 1999.

Our neighbors are the hundreds of birds that raise our spirits with their fantastic songs and surprise us with their wonderful colors during the day. At night it is spectacular to hear the dozens of different sounds offered by the nocturnal animals and the marvelous landscape illuminated by the stars.

We are part of the Bird Route and we have learned to identify the vast majority of these feathered friends.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you to my house where my wife María Isabel and my two daughters Ana Isabel and María José, have taken on the task of learning the art of rural community-based tourism to show our visitors how great it is to live respecting and caring for nature.

I invite you to continue navigating this web page, where we have posted general information about who we are and what you can see and do here with us.

And don’t give it another thought; I assure you that you won’t regret it. Call me and let’s agree to make your vacations beyond marvelous.

José Miranda, owner
