Special Events and Conferences

 

For exceptional conferences, corporate incentives and special events, Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel and Nature Reserve is an ideal choice just 60 km (one hour) west of the International Airport in San Ramón. Villa Blanca is becoming the new option for quality and “sustainable” hospitality within proximity of San Jose. The owners of Si Como No Resort, members of Greentique Hotels, purchased the property in 2004 from a previous Costa Rican president, Rodrigo Carazo, who also founded the University for Peace. The completely renovated hotel, nestled within 75 pristine private acres, was recreated from an original Costa Rican Hacienda Farm Village concept typical of that period located within 2,000 pristine acres of the Los Angeles private cloud forest reserve.

C.S.T. (The Certification for Sustainable Tourism): Villa Blanca participates in various conservation programs including C.S.T., created by the Costa Rican tourism board (I.C.T.) with five green leaves. As a member of Greentique Hotels, they support the FONAFIFO Carbon Offset Program with their sister hotels, Si Como No Resort, Spa and Wildlife Refuge in Manuel Antonio, and Aguila de Osa Inn as well as other innovative projects with Rainforest Alliance and the University of Costa Rica.

The ongoing Greentique Tree Adoption Program is partly supported by hotel guests who participate by choosing to adopt some of the 10,000 native trees that have been planted and cared for by the donations and tour proceeds and special events hosted by Villa Blanca and her sister Greentique Hotels in Manuel Antonio and the Osa Peninsula as well as at the Santa Juana Mountain Rural Adventure Tours.
