Finca Rosa Blanca, a winsome inn and plantation located half an hour north of San José in the central highlands of Costa Rica, has been lauded for its eco-friendly practices, which include the use of solar energy, composting, and water recycling. Quirky details in the 13 guest rooms (all suites), such as hand-painted murals and unusually shaped windows, give the impression of staying at an artistic friend's house. But you still get all the trappings of an elegant hotel, including whirlpool baths and private verandas overlooking the verdant Central Valley. At El Tigre Vestido Restaurant, freshly brewed coffee comes from Finca Rosa Blanca's own organic plantation; mangoes, papayas, avocados, lemons, and guavas are handpicked from the eight acres of tropical gardens that surround the inn. There's also a spring-fed infinity pool with a 12-foot cascading waterfall and a hot tub. For more hands-on relaxation, book a volcanic mud wrap or a coffee body scrub at the intimate El Targua Spa.—Anja Mutić
