Had a great experience in this very small B&B! Very friendly owners/staff, excellent meals (others than breakfast available on order), great garden around the houses. We enjoeyed being away from town (if you travel without car it's a bit too far)

Room Tip: Only two houses available; no differnce between them.

Well worth the trip over the rough road.
A family run operation. Mama cooks the breakfast which is served in a decorated outdoor dining are just a few feet from some of the most beautiful birds. The room was clean and Donald and his family are very accommodating. Our morning hike included watching Diego milk one of the cows.
Cant imagine a nicer place to stay in the area.
Not five stars only because of short time power and water outages and wireless only in common area. But this is the tropics.
Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Only two rooms. We had the smaller room but it could sleep 4 easily with bunk bed.

Tenorio park is just fabulous and Donald recommand to had a night walk on his neighbour land (5$/each) witch was an amazing 2 hours where we sea venimous snaks, tarentula and very cute frogs...kids love it!! On Casitas tenorio we had the chance to milk the cows, eat sugarcane while our walk, taste there own fruits have everymorning the tucan visit while our breakfast and on dinner a fight between a opossum and a carcajou.

About a 7 minute drive up a bumpy road from Bijagua Casitas Tenorio is a charming B&B build on a sustainable organic farm and campground. The rooms are clean and modern, and the whole place has a real rustic charm. The staff are friendly and helpful and the delicious breakfast is served in a charming open air dining area using foods grown on the farm. The location is about a 25 minute drive from the Tenorio/Rio Celeste national park.

We stayed at the Casitas Tenorio in February and it was a wonderful experience. Breakfast is delicious and served aside a feeder that brings in toucans, tanagers, aricaris, and more - what great entertainment. It is a family establishment and everyone is lovely. Doug is an awesome birder and naturalists and you should definitely take advantage of his knowledge and schedule a walk with him.

After only two days, they feel like family. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed 2 nights in casita 1. It was clean and comfortable. The family are very welcoming and if you ask the night before will cook you dinner for 12 dollars per person. Both the dinner and breakfasts were excellent using the farm,s own produce. The setting is gorgeous with wildlife on the doorstep -literally. Have travelled extensively and this place really rates a five star review.

Room Tip: Casita 1 has a lovely view of the volcano.
