With seven acres of verdant grounds and a variety meeting areas, Hotel Villa San Ignacio is the ideal location for corporate and special events.

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 wild flowers,fruit trees, and the birds and butterflies they invite.

Alajuela Province is famous for having “the best weather in the world.” In this tropical paradise, the temperature remains an average of 77 °F / 25 °C all year round. The temperatures are perfect for relaxing by the pool, playing a game of badminton or strolling on the trails hoping to spot a few of Costa Rica’s treasured birds. If you are in the mood to explore the area, we are also happy to help you plan sightseeing adventures nearby in the stunning Alajuela province.
