No-nonsense cosy B&B driven by a very good and professional team/owners. Nice and spacious houses including tasty breakfast with cute guests like toucans and squirrels watching you. Good location as well to discover the region.

Property's Favorite Review
Casitas Tenorio is hands down the most relaxing and beautiful place I've found in Costa Rica after 14 years of extensive travel around the country. The attention to detail in every room/house is extraordinary; the owners, Pippa and Donald, are the best possible guide not only to

We stayed 2 nights in the El Volcano, a peaceful room surrounded by vegetation. It was comfortable and clean with a large bathroom. My favourite part of the casitas was the breakfast room where you can observe beautiful birds (including 2 toucans) while eating. The owners and

In EL BOSQUE casita, is there a fan?
Hi Mistyisaq and Mike, Thank you both for (asking) and answering the initial question. We have adjustable industrial ceiling fans in all of our rooms, which provide a nice cool breeze at the strength that you want. At night time, it does indeed get a little chilly at times and you will find there is no need for AC up here in the cool rainforest! We are glad that your both enjoyed your stay here and thanks again for your responses. Kind regards Pip Kelly

Hi Mistyisaq, Thanks so much for posting the initial question and then after your stay providing an updated response. This is most helpful to others who might have a similar question. Thank-you to all the other past guests who were able to make a valuable responses also! We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay here, and noticed the level of detail we go to when cleaning our rooms. We do live in the rainforest, and our rooms are set amongst lush tropical foliage, which is home to many insects! We take pride in the cleaning of our rooms, our staff clean under all beds and behind furniture and curtains and are very very thorough. Our staff take their time when cleaning and no detail is overlooked! Including looking for pesky insects! We have fly swats and bug spray in each room. The windows all have screens and we attempt to have our rooms as clean as possible. Having said that, you might find some insects in the rooms especially if you leave the door open at night time with the light on inside! And yes, the ants are very very fast, so we recommend keeping any food covered or to place it in the fridge (each room has a fridge). If there is a bug issue, our guests can contact a member of staff and we will gladly help with the issue. Repellent with DEET is a good idea, and there are many natural ones with citronella oil that work really well. We recommend wearing long pants and shirts at night time, if you attract mosquitos. Thanks again everyone for your contributions and we are so glad that you all had a positive experience here! We hope you can come back one day! PURA VIDA from Costa Rica! Kind regards Pip Kelly

Yes there are a couple of small restaurants in town one in particular and the most popular is El Barrigon which serves many typical Costa Rican Cuisine like the most common typical dish call Casado. Also the pizza's he makes are pretty tasty. Also there is a small roadside stand on the road towards Upala approx 7 Kilometers that is excellent. They serve this Costa rican smoked pork that is awesome, and the hand made tortillas are amazing. The name of this place is Soda La Ceiba. Just ask Donald or Pip they will steer you in the right direction. As for the rooms yes each has its own private bathroom. You will be more than pleased with your stay at Casitas. Donald and Pip and their place will make you feel right at home. You will leave there with your soul content and a true feeling and understanding of the term all Ticos use "Pura Vida"

No A/C needed since the area is in the mountains. Not that buggy either since it is cooler / higher altitude than on the coast. There are screens on the windows. If you need more specific info you should email / contact the hosts themselves.

Hi Bill, Thanks for your question, and it's great to hear that you are coming to stay! Unfortunately we don't have any televisions in any of our rooms of common areas. The idea is for people to disconnect from technology and enjoy the natural surroundings that we have here. For a full list of what each Casita has, including photos, please visit our direct website. We look forward to seeing you in April, Kind regards, Pip Kelly Owner and Manager

"We stayed in the Moon Cabin with our toddler and it was perfect!"
"All casitas look amazing"
"As a couple, our preference was La Luna, but we wouldn't hesitate to stay in any of their rooms if it meant staying here again."
"All the casitas are lovely, some are only one room while others have two bedrooms, balcony etc."
"If it rains at night and you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. "
