Centrally located to be near the airport and many of Costa Rica's best attractions, yet a world away from the tourist bustle, Eden Atenas is the perfect headquarters for your Costa Rican visit. Here you will be tempted to just relax by the pool, enjoy spectacular tropical gardens (the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar), watch Toucans or Mot Mots, and be wowed by the best breakfast in the country. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching sunrise over the volcano, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden. The only complaint we ever hear, is "If I'd only known, I would have stayed longer"

My partner and I had such a good time at Eden Atenas. Jan and Avtar were welcoming and helpful. We really enjoyed the breakfast. There is clearly a lot of thought put in to creating such beautiful meals. Listening to the birds while reading by the pool is an idyllic scene that I

The hosts are gracious and accommodating. You can look forward to Jan’s impressive breakfasts each morning- fresh fruit, smoothies, crepes, poached eggs and more. An incredible start to each day here- served outside, surrounded by an amazing tropical garden, birds and

The place was beautiful and the hosts were just as amazing! Jan & Avtar were super helpful during our brief stay there and even better people to chat with. We had been traveling throughout Costa Rica and needed a place close to the San Jose airport since we had an early flight.

It is about 1 1/2 hours and about 36 miles. Trust Avtar and Jan to help you make arrangements. They will be able to provide you with information about getting there and they had a driver when we were there. He spoke English very well and was a good guide.

Thanks for the question. We are 25-35 minutes from the main airport (SJO), depending on time of day and traffic. We do contract with a private car service for airport transfers. The charge for this is $35 US. If, however, you stay with us a week, we will pay for your pick-up.

do you have a room with twin beds?
Not at the moment. We will next season. We do have an apartment with two separate sleeping areas, both with double beds, as well as kitchen, sitting area, and large outdoor patio.

At present, we do not have twin beds. We are hoping to rectify that by next season. We do, however, have a large apartment which has two double beds in separate rooms. It also has a big kitchen, patio, and living area. Check our website to view.
