Vista Valverde

Vista Valverde is a mountaintop Bed and Breakfast with private cabinas. It sits at 4000 feet altitude with views of the Gulf of Nicoya, the Nicoya Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean. It is centrally located such that day trips to Arenal, Zarcero, the beach, and other places of interest are within an hour or two via scenic drives. Vista Valverde is less than an hour from the main international airport in San Jose and is a convenient location to spend your first or last night in Costa Rica, as well as a beautiful, relaxing place for your entire vacation.


Vista Valverde Bed & Breakfast started with the dreams of Tom Ackley and Susan Lyons. Tom wanted to live in Costa Rica and Susan wanted to open a Bed & Breakfast. They both love to cook and it seemed like a fabulous adventure.



The dream really began to take shape after several extended visits to Costa Rica. After looking at lots of properties, we found the ideal property for a Bed & Breakfast outside San Ramon and started the project.


And so the adventure began – grading roads to reach the top of the property, levelling off building sites, bringing up electric lines from the public road below, installing a water system using natural spring water, planting trees and creating gardens! It¡¯s still a work in progress but has been fun planning each step.
