Arrive in San Jose with automatic bilingual transfer to Hotel Grano de Oro. Your Victorian Mansion is an oasis in lively San Jose.
It’s flower and sun-drenched courtyards exude the charm and character of a fine hotel. It is just a great location to explore the cultural diversity of San Jose.
Begin the day with a Transfer flight to Tambor on the Nicoya Peninsula! On a remote part of the Nicoya Peninsula, near the town of Mal Pais, there lies the Hotel Flor Blanca. Seven acres of jungle front with only 11 villas total, this hotel is one of the most luxurious, service oriented, private, and beautiful hotels in Costa Rica, hands down. Why 5 nights at only one hotel? Because you won’t want to leave. Each villa is a romantic masterpiece. Every villa has views of the Pacific Ocean, a living area, and private deck. The designers have borrowed liberally from the Near East and the Orient – curves are favored over angles, pastels over vibrant colors, unvarnished brick and terra cotta over tiled floors.
One of the more interesting features is the open air bathroom with surrounding private garden. You can actually do some star gazing from the sunken tub. The food…. mmm, incredible. What a restaurant! What a bar! The restaurant is open-air and world-class, combining local foods with Central Pacific techniques.
The restaurant turns into a wonderful bar at night, with a wide variety of drinks and ambience worthy of the word. On site amenities include a world class surfing beach, yoga, aerobics and karate classes, with great instructors. There’s also an art room and exercise room with personal trainers. And yes, there is massage.
From the Flor Blanca, you can take a number of mini-tours directly from the hotel, including horseback riding, kayaking, and nature walks – the Flor Blanca has an on-staff biologist well versed in local flora and fauna. Get some exercise while getting some fun education.!
Leave the technological world behind, and learn what real civilization is all about. The Flor Blanca is absolutely unique, and the memories you take home with you will never fade!
Last morning transfer flight back to San Jose and on to SJO airport for your flight home.
