banner-3Casa Divina sits on 2.7 hectares (6.5 acres) of secondary cloud forest. We boast three two-story luxurious finished wood cabins. Each room has a private porch with hammock, spacious living quarters and an elegant bathroom with full-size bathtub. Each room can accommodate from 1 to 4 guests. In the main house our guests can relax with a good book in the reading nook, take their meals in the family style dining room, and enjoy great music and our house cocktail, the Divina Capirinia, at the Casa Divina Bar. On the property we also have two short self-guided hikes that offer great lookout points. You will be amazed by the birdwatching possible in our slice of forest. Tanagers, quetzals, toucans, hummingbirds are at your window making it possible to birdwatch even from bed!
