Our good friend and fabulous artist, and muralist, Oscar Salazar, is once again adding beauty and personality to the walls of Finca Rosa Blanca. We asked him to paint a mural on a wall of the veranda outside of the newest room at the hotel, the lovely El Cielo Master Suite. The views from the suite windows and deck are of the surrounding coffee plantations and the Central Valley of Costa Rica, so he decided to paint what could be seen, if you had x-ray vision through the wall, north to our closest national park and Barva Volcano.
Oscar has been painting murals inside and outside at Finca Rosa Blanca for over 20 years and he is part of our extended family of friends who join us periodically, bringing art and beauty to share with our guests. Oscar has painted waterfalls and coffee plantations, jaguars, dantas and exotic tropical birds, church steeples and small towns filled with adobe houses, our neighbors picking coffee and our favorite towering trees filled with orchids and winding vines.
We invite you to come and visit every mural Oscar has painted for us over the years! Oscar would love it!!!
El Cielo means “Heaven” and it is the name of our new Master Suite at Finca Rosa Blanca and it is Heavenly. We are finishing the new room now to be ready for our Holiday Season and we cannot wait to share this exotic location with you. We found the perfect site to build overlooking the coffee fields below and with views of the Central Valley below. At night the lights of the city and the mountains beyond will entrance our future guests in El Cielo.
Our largest Master Suite yet, El Cielo’s bedroom has wraparound windows which open up to the towering native trees that make it feel like an exotic tree house floating above the ground. With a deck that is suspended into the tree branches, you will experience the world of the tropical birds and animals that live in these trees while enjoying the breezes and sun-filled air from a comfy lounge chair. The covered deck area features a hand-painted mural of Barva Volcano and the mountains looming up behind the master suite. El Cielo is surrounded by many of our coffee trees so that depending upon the season you will be able to watch the coffee ripen on the bush but better yet in the mornings you will be able to fall out of bed and make yourself a freshly roasted cup of Café Rosa Blanca.
We will keep you posted on the progress of El Cielo!
