Hotel Grano de Oro - San José

Hotel Grano de Oro, a founding father of the Green Circle, is a sustainable oasis in the hectic city of San Jose. You’ll go back in time when staying in this gorgeous colonial building. The hotel was the family home of one of the most renowned entrepreneurial families in Costa Rica. More than 30 years ago, Eldon and Lori, a Canadian couple, bought the property and turned it into the upscale boutique hotel it is today.

Grano de Oro sets an example in sustainable water, waste, and energy management. They are also actively involved in the local community as founders of “Casa Luz,” a social project supporting single mothers to become more independent. Casa Luz’s support for the young women they work with continues as the women enter adulthood so they can each build a better future.
