Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel and Spa is a charming 75-acre boutique hotel property that is encircled by the spectacular Los Angeles Private Biological Reserve. Initially owned by Costa Rica’s former President Rodrigo Carazo Odio, this sustainable green property was created to fulfill a long standing vision of showcasing San Ramon area’s unassuming charm along with the local community’s dedication for preserving its natural resources.

This world class eco tourism property has also had the honor of bagging the prestigious Five Green Leaves by the Certificate of Sustainable Tourism (the nation’s topmost honor in the field sustainable tourism processes).
