Sueno Celeste is a charming B&B located on Route 6 next to the small town of Bijagua. We stayed there for one night to go to the Tenorio Volcano national park and would have stayed longer, but it was booked. The setting is peaceful and remote with lush plantings and many, many birds.The 3 rooms in two small buildings are removed from the road and oriented toward the volcano, so you aren't bothered by road noise. Our room felt hand-crafted and romantic with handmade quilts, colored stucco, & a natural wood vaulted ceiling. Each room has a small porch with a hammock and table & chair. There is no air conditioning, although a fan is provided. The room would be improved by the addition of a ceiling fan and a softer mattress.
Owners Daniel & Dominique are kind and helpful. We were offered coffee when we arrived and given very useful laminated maps of the national park & of restaurant options in town. From Sueno Celeste B&B, it's a 45-60 minute drive on a rough gravel road to the entry of the national park. A 4x4 vehicle is required. There was a heavy rain on the morning we arrived, so we walked through a lot of mud in the most beautiful primary rainforest, enjoyed the natural hot springs, and managed the difficult climb down to the gorgeous waterfall. We brought in a bag lunch and spent a total of 4 hours in the park (it closes at 4pm) - for me, it was the most memorable part of our 11 day trip. I wouldn't consider any other B&B to visit this national park.
