Hotel Bougainvillea - first and last night of your visit


Hotel Bougainvillea just 20 minutes away from the airport is the ideal location to rest upon arrival to Costa Rica. The hotel is located in Santo Tomas de Santo Domingo of Heredia. The town of Santo Domingo was founded in 1848 and it was named after the Basilica dedicated to Santo Domingo de Guzman. The town manages to maintain its rural charm despite being so close to the big clusters of population, many colonial houses built of adobe can be observed.

This three story hotel offers rooms that are quite nice with good decoarations, satellite TV, great showers, coffee maker, and good views of the gardens or the Central Valley. Other amenities are the swimming pool, gift shop (with bird books available) and good bar and restaurant.

Full of trees, bushes, and flowers, the garden of Bougainvillea Hotel is the feature that perhaps justifies your stay there. As a botanical experience the garden is fantastic but not only that, a great number of bird species can be watched in the property making it the ideal spot to start your trip.
