Vista del Valle is in the heart of the Costa Rican Coffee region, located in the district of El Rosario de Naranjo. You can still see neighbors hand-harvesting shade-grown coffee. On any given day, you might find yourself behind a truck full of the aromatic red beans on their way to the Co-op, or witness the beauty of the coffee fields in the full bloom of tiny white jasmine-scented flowers. Or perhaps take a ride on one of the horseback tours through the town and into a coffee plantation, taking in the vistas of the Central Valle and the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. You can see 4 volcanoes from the property and from a nearby ridge we can even see Arenal Volcano.
Guests may explore acres of tropical botanical gardens, observe exotic birds, butterflies, enjoy our own private waterfall, or walk through the town of El Rosario where you will see real middle class life in Costa Rica. The property has various lovely cottages, villas and bungalows to suit couples, friends, and families alike. Each has its own unique name.

The Mango Manor rooms share a large wrap around porch, each side has it's own hammock and leather Sarchi style rockers.
