Our Vision of Ecotourism

For the last 30 years we have focused on the highest quality of service in the hospitality industry while offering you authentic experiences with a local flavor of Costa Rican culture. We encourage ecotourism and support environmental consciousness and proactive sustainable practices. The culture, environment and economy of our local community is fragile, requiring a sustained commitment from us to ensure that together we have a lasting positive impact and minimal footprint. Our resort hotel and organic coffee plantation also provides meaningful support to our community, providing income, education, positive cultural exchanges and financial incentive to protect the natural environment while offering you a quality experience.

Finca Rosa Blanca’s Commitment to Sustainability

We take sustainability seriously, because it’s the right thing to do.

We also believe that our efforts to create positive social and environmental impacts are key to providing a high quality experience for our guests. After all, every little detail matters. We support the Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST), a Costa Rican program that certifies responsible and sustainable tourism. We are proud to have obtained the highest level possible (5) with a 100% score.

  • Conservation & Biological Impact

    Since the beginning of our adventure on our organic coffee plantation and hotel, we have focused on an ambitious plan of recycling and regeneration, avoiding toxic chemicals and engaging in organic agriculture to reduce our ecological footprint and mitigate our impact on climate change. Over the last 25 years we have planted more than 7,000 native trees and are carbon neutral.

  • Socio-Economic Community Involvement

    We believe that we are intrinsically tied to the community where we live and work. 100% of our employees are from our area and we work closely in our barrio on solutions for recycling, water quality, health. We also seek, support and purchase products from our senior citizens and artisans, and have been supporting the Children's Food Bank for 20 years.

  • Education and Training

    Our guests enjoy authentic experiences with some of the best guides and interpretation you'll find anywhere in the world. We've supported our staff to improve their skills through continuing education programs, so that they can better share their knowledge and care of our planet with you.

  • Service To Our Clients

    We believe that quality, personalization and responsibility have great influence over decisions that our clients or future clients may make. By setting an example of dedication and commitment to responsible tourism practices and offering a full slate of authentic experiences to our guests, we enhance their understanding and support for conservation, education, and footprint

The Finca Rosa Blanca Family

Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation Resort is the creation of three generations of the Jampol Family, and it has been a dream project for us. Sylvia Jampol along with her son Glenn and his wife Teri started the dream in 1985. More than three decades later, Teri and Glenn live next door to the hotel in the organic coffee plantation which allows them to oversee the guests’ every need. Their two daughters Lily and Olivia, grew up on the grounds of Finca Rosa Blanca along with countless dogs, cats, horses, friends and family.

Our 100% local staff have grown with us through the years. Our on-site naturalist Manolo has guided our guests for more than 20 years. Gerardo started caring for our horses 25 years ago, and now pours his love into our organic coffee.

We invite you to take a video tour of Finca Rosa Blanca.

Art Abounds in Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation Resort

Glenn has been an artist his whole life and his artwork can be seen hanging in both the restaurant and hotel. He and Teri have amassed a large collection of art, crafts and objects from all over the world and you will see many of their favorite pieces in and around the hotel and restaurant.
