We spent 2 nights at Sueno Celeste in February 2015. The location of the lodge on top of a hill outside Bijagua is great. It is set between the two volcanos Tenorio and Miravelles and weather permitted you hava a view of both. The rooms a very clean and nicely decorated. The owners Daniel and Dominique make you feel very... More

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for one night when we visited the Rio Celeste. The hosts were extremely helpful - they gave us maps and answered all of our questions! Their hot tub was a nice lil treat after a long day of hiking and their breakfast in the morn was a perfect start to the day. Overall,... More

Sueno Celeste is an amazing property located near Volcano Tenorio. The amazing views, landscaping, and beautiful cabins provided us with a stay we will never forget. From booking until we were heading out the driveway Daniel and Dominique provided us with a wealth of information about the surrounding area and the most delicious breakfast we've had during our 2 months...

This is a lovely quiet place to stay in beautifully finished cabinas in a fantastic location right between two huge volcanos. The owners are super friendly and very helpful,. Oh and cook home baked bread (yummy) to go with your rico breakfast. Also they put out fresh fruit for the birds and animals so you can watch them while dining...... More

Though we only stayed here for one night it was a perfect experience. The hosts are incredibly welcoming and a wealth of knowledge. They are organized and more than just B&B owners, they had all the information we needed for a stress free, relaxing, extraordinary experience of the Rio Celeste area. We were able to find an amazing place to... More

Great funky bungalows! The owners are committed to the economical health of the area and are very helpful planning your days' activities. Breakfast was great and we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. A great find.

Sueno Celeste is the ideal location if you're visiting Tenorio Volcano National Park to see Rio Celeste. The B&B is located in Bijagua de Upala, a small town that is relatively not pedestrian friendly. A car rental is almost a requirement if you're staying in Bijagua de Upala. The bed and breakfast is the best accommodation we had while in... More

Before venturing off to the Pacific Coast beaches of Costa Rica, we decided to start our trip in Bijagua at the Sueno Celeste B & B. We could not have chosen a more perfect place! The owners, Daniel and Dominque, were such warm, welcoming hosts, and they seem to really enjoy what they are doing. They were both extremely helpful... More

The only real reason to stay in Bijagua is its relative closeness to the Rio Celeste Park. There are some markets, a part time pharmacy and a number of restaurants. And then there is Sueno Celeste, where you're pampered by the owners (a Belgian couple) so you forget the awful drive to Rio Celeste. This B&B is a case study... More

Located between two volcanos, Bijagua is somewhat off the beaten track, but well worthwhile a visit if you want to get a little off the beaten track. If you decide to come to Bijagua, Sueno Celeste is highly recommended as lodging place. The cabinas are well thought out and decorated in style, and the bathroom is both highly functional and...
