Welcome to The Orchid Tree!

If you are looking for comfort, privacy and beauty in a gorgeous tropical setting, then you have found the perfect destination at the Orchid Tree. We are a small and intimate bed and breakfast inn, just 20 minutes from the main airport in Costa Rica, Juan Santamaria International (airport code SJO) and only an hour from the Pacific coast. We are ideally located in a verdant valley in Rio Grande, Atenas – the perfect base for exploring lush rainforest, enchanting cloud forest, raging rivers, cascading waterfalls, bubbling volcanoes, artisan villages and coffee plantations.

The Orchid Tree is a truly exquisite and special place. As our guests you will enjoy Costa Rica’s most precious treasures, its incredible landscapes and natural diversity, in the tranquil elegance of our unique indoor-outdoor setting. The living, dining and bar areas are decorated in the Balinese style....open to nature and the tropical gardens. The guest suites are tastefully adorned and have ensuite bathrooms. Each suite is located on a separate level, built into a gently sloping hillside and in keeping in harmony with the Balinese design of the property opens onto an airy passageway that leads down to the courtyard, living, dining and bar areas.

Our pool is one of the gems of the Orchid Tree. Set among tropical gardens and perfect for taking a refreshing swim or just relaxing under the palm trees, many of our guests find it difficult to do anything else! Beside the pool is our covered rancho, fitted with a barbeque, comfortable wicker loungers, swing chairs and a dining area.

As your hosts, we are committed to making your Costa Rican experience special and tailored to your tastes. Whether you're coming to Costa Rica for a quick winter getaway or considering a longer stay, for fun or relaxation, adventure or seclusion, let our years of experience in Costa Rica make the best of your time here – according to your dream of the ideal Costa Rican getaway!
