Casitas Tenorio B&B is our home

Stay a while – it can be yours too

Casitas Tenorio is our business and our home. We are Donald Varela Soto and Pip Kelly Varela and we are a Costa Rican/ Australian couple. Casitas Tenorio B&B is more than just a place to stay – it’s an invitation to experience Costa Rican life as part of our community. This is a working dairy farm, where we grow our own food and are working to regenerate the forest on areas of the farm. We combine our B&B with our farm in a sustainable way and share our love for the land and our community with our guests.

Casitas Tenorio B&B is a perfect destination for anyone who wants an insight into rural living in Costa Rica. Take the opportunity to see some truly spectacular birds, flora and fauna – on site, and in the surrounding area. Whether you’re travelling alone, with friends, or as a family, we can help make your Costa Rican escape a memorable and unique experience.

At Casitas Tenorio, you’re perfectly placed to visit Rio Celeste, located in the Volcano Tenorio National Park – one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful sites. There’s so much to see and do around the farm and village itself – hiking, bird watching and horse riding – you can have the full Costa Rican experience right here. Let the local people, geography and wildlife treat you to a truly incredible stay.

You’re welcome to join us here

Casitas Tenorio B&B isn’t just a place to lay your head – it’s an invitation to see the harmony between authentic rural life in Northern Costa Rica and the natural resources that are so important to us
