Nestled in the cloud forests of Costa Rica, Finca Rosa Blanca is an organic, shade-grown coffee plantation with its own thirteen-room inn. This 49-acre family-run property strives to serve as a model for combining sustainability with top-tier resort luxury, using everything from community development to innovative building techniques. The resort has earned the country's highest Sustainable Tourism Certification rating — five green leaves — and recycling efforts include turning coffee pulp into fertilizer and hiring only locals, in order to "recycle" profits back into the community. Among the many activities on offer are hiking in Braulio Carillo National Park, detoxing with spa treatments using organic coffee, dining on Latino fusion cuisine and soaking beneath the waterfall in the garden pool. As well, guests can discover every aspect of coffee farming, from harvesting to roasting, and then enjoy a cup of java (or perhaps a glass of wine) overlooking the valley below.
