Welcome to Villa San Ignacio

Villa San Ignacio has been renovated to recall its original rustic charm. The décor is polished but simple, and our custom furniture designed from antiques provides cozy comfort for guests while evoking the simple grace of the country. Clean, natural light makes it feel like you’re visiting a cheery hacienda. Pandora Restaurant, specializing in home made dishes with fresh, local ingredients, is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With seven acres of verdant grounds and a variety meeting areas, Villa San Ignacio is the ideal location for corporate and special events.

This is the spirit of Villa San Ignacio, a visit to the past, but with all the conveniences the modern traveler desires.

Alajuela Province is known for having ideal weather 300 days of the year. Our perfect climate is one of the reasons Villa San Ignacio thrived as a small coffee plantation in the last century. In another past life, it was owned by a botanist, and we have this devoted gentleman to thank for the lovely grounds that team with wildflowers and ripe fruit trees, and the birds and butterflies they invite.
