Inn at Coyote Mountain

Calle La Tabla de La Guaria , Piedades Sur
San Ramón , Costa Rica
506 2383-0544

Traditionally, Costa Rica hasn’t been known for its fine cuisine. With the 2004 opening of the Inn at Coyote Mountain, a 90-minute drive west of San José near San Ramón, the country’s reputation has been redeemed. On a remote hilltop near the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret, the chef-owners of Trout Point Lodge in Nova Scotia, have created an intimate retreat where aspiring chefs—professional or not—can sign up for three-day courses on Latin-Creole cooking (think tropical jambalaya). Built in the Mudejar style of Spanish architecture, the four-room inn has romantic, mosquito netting–draped beds, glass-tile tubs, and a spectacular observatory with its own spiral staircase.
