If you are looking for the perfect getaway this B&B will not disappoint you. We stayed in the guest room (there are also two bungalows). We were pampered from the moment we arrived. The gourmet dinners are more than worth the extra cost. The B&B is snuggled in a scenic location, 40 minute taxi ride from the Panama border, and... More

Casa Botania is a beautiful B&B where the views are beyond description. Pepe and Kathleen work like crazy to make sure you are happy and comfortable all the time. The Belgian crepes with bananas and Nutella are the absolute best. Dinner is delicious from soup to dessert. From town center, a $4-6 taxi ride takes you there.

Lovely setting with Fabulous views of the region, a short distance to the Wilson Botanical Garden, and one of the area's best restaurants make this a jewel in an otherwise rural backwater. Hosts Kata and Pepe are helpful, considerate, knowledgeable and great people!

We stopped here as part of Jane's custom tour (SummerLand Tour Co.) and it was wonderful. From the warm welcome to the outstanding dinner it was excellent. The cabins are very clean and the "hot water shower" is in my top 2 of Costa Rica! We will be returning. Don

we have stayed here regularly and each room (three cabins to choose from) have their own personality. DON'T bother to go into town to eat. Advance notice may get Kata (Kathleen) to prepare a lunch for you at a cost. She will cook dinner for you for $19 a person, three course meal, and her cooking is beyond description. Her... More

Comfortable cabins with a fantastic view, great mattresses and cool weather for a good nights sleep and hosts that do their best to make you happy. We had a wonderful time and realllllllly enjoyed the luscious fish dinner and chocolate mouse Kathleen and Pepe served. Great place for birdwatching and only a short walk to Wilson Botanical Gardens. Pepe is... More

We were in Costa Rica visiting friends and the 4 of us decided to take a road trip. With all the wonderful reviews, Casa Botania seemed like the place to stay. Was it ever! We stayed 2 nights, & would have stayed longer if our time permitted. Kathleen and her husband Pepe could not be nicer! She is Belgian, he... More

We had heard about this interesting place on the road less traveled as we have frequently suggested that our guests who are interested in gardens and nature should take a trip to Wilson Botanical Gardens near San Vito. San Vito makes a great day trip from Dominical or Uvita but now we'd most definitely suggest to our guests that a... More

Beatiful country off the beaten track with charismatic owners and a very cute son as well! Clearly managed and care for with heart. Wilson Botanical Gardens is a nice afternoon outing, coffee country nearby or just having a picnic and reading at their picnic table. Cool nights so pack accordingly. Great balconies too. We didn't eat there as they were... More

Hospitality doesn't get any better than here! Kathleen, the proprietor, is a warm, friendly, woman who will do her utmost to make your stay enjoyable. Located outside the city of San Vito and near the Wilson botanical garden, this quiet, simple, spotless B&B has a wonderful mountain view from the cabins.. The breakfast was sumptuous; since Kathleen is Belgian, she... More
