We must say, Casa Bella Rita is in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Located in Costa Rica's Central Valley we are blessed with sun and beautiful weather all year round. Warm during the day and cooled by gentle Central Valley breezes at night, Casa Bella Rita is located in Santa Ana, a suburb of Costa Rica's capital San Jose. Our estate overlooks the hills of Santa Ana while nestled atop the area's natural canyon and views to die for. On any given day Toucans, Laughing Falcons and a variety of other birds can be spotted in the canyon.
Casa Bella Rita is close to everything the Central Valley has to offer. Near Costa Rica’s bustling capital city San Jose, our bed and breakfast is just minutes from the San Jose airport and even closer to prime shopping and fine restaurants as well as local markets and boutiques. There is just so much to see and do in the Central Valley. A ten minute drive delivers you to the Multiplaza Shopping Mall, one of the largest malls in the country, for high-end shopping at stores like Armani to endless local boutiques that showcase hand-crafted jewelry, furniture, souvenirs and much more.
While shopping and all day exploring you can work up quite an appetite. The Central Valley offers many fine dining experiences serving all types of cuisines: sushi, typical Costa Rican, Italian and Argentinean to name a few. Even many familiar American restaurants are in the Central Valley like Outback, Tony Roma's, and TGI Friday's. There is something for everybody. Enjoy truly unique produce markets like the Saturday market in Ciudad Colon. Browse the local produce, sample something new from the generous Costa Rican local growers, or buy some market fare for Steve and Rita to create your special meal at Casa Bell Rita.. We think the best restaurant is at Casa Bella Rita but remember we need advance notice to prepare a special meal for you. Also, don't forget to stop off at one of the many coffee shops and enjoy a cup of coffee like nothing else in the world. Costa Rica is home to some of the best coffee varieties in the world. And, of course, we can make it for you as we serve nothing but Costa Rica's finest coffee.
But shopping and dining are just a mere sampling of what the Central Valley has to offer. Our great location is near many unique sights of Costa Rica.
