Grandpas´ Bed & Breakfast is located to the north of the historical city of Cartago, on the road to the Irazú Volcano, 25 minutes away.  The B&B’s strategic location makes it ideal to explore the many attractions found nearby. 

Founded in 1563 by Juan Vasquez de Coronado, Cartago has the distinction of being the first Spanish settlement in the country and the Capital of Costa Rica until 1823.


A visit to the Cartago area provides a flashback in time, with ruins dating back to the 16th century, reminding visitors of a time when pre-Columbian inhabitants farmed what was once the country’s breadbasket region.

From the basic but very comfortable rooms, there are wonderful views of the valley and the manicured gardens provide a haven for rest and relaxation.
