Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation and Inn is the creation of Teri and Glenn Jampol. Living next door to the hotel allows them to oversee the guests’ every need. Their two daughters Lily and Olivia, grew up at Rosa Blanca along with countless dogs, cats, horses, friends and family. They now live, work and study in New England, USA.
“Owner/designers Glenn and Teri Jampol live here with their two children, and the rapport with guests and Costa Rican staff is noticeably warmer and more responsive than in many places. Glenn is an artist and builder, Teri is an excellent chef, culling from her garden organically grown strawberries and asparagus.”
