MIDRANGE - Blue Banyan Inn





Blue Banyan Inn - TripAdvisor's #1 Quepos Area Hotel

Surrounded by primary rainforest with mountain ranges looming in the distance, the Blue Banyan Inn is a charming bed and breakfast catering to the environmentally conscious.

The Blue Banyan is part of Finca Braman’s 75-acre ecologically sustainable community, encompassing private homes, a wildlife sanctuary, a volunteer center, tilapia farms, nurseries, and botanical gardens.


About Us

Our vision began in the spring of 2005 and has continued to evolve. It all started with a glorious view of the mountains that we knew had to be shared with others. We began construction in May of 2006 and since that time we have built three cottages, a beautiful 60 foot waterfall and swimming pool, and the Bird’s & Butterfly’s Restaurant.

In keeping with nature and our goal of being environmentally friendly, we are striving to become completely self-sustainable. We have started with an organic garden and botanic nursery and have plans to convert to solar energy within the next two years.

As animal lovers, we have partnered with Kids Saving the Rainforest to build a wildlife sanctuary. We have completed the first phase with brand new accommodations for Brazilian, Panamanian, and Columbian monkeys. The second phase will be to provide housing for animals that cannot be released back into the Costa Rican rainforest after rehabilitation.

As our guests, we hope that during your visit you will enjoy all of the beauty and serenity that this region of Costa Rica has to offer.
