thumb1“Once a sprawling coffee plantation, Casa Grande Mountain Retreat is a 107-acre tropical landscape approximately two hours from San Juan. The Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association has named this hotel “Green Inn of the Year” four times. Green initiatives at Casa Grande include using cold water and biodegradable soaps, using energy-efficient light bulbs, maintaining a botanical garden, encouraging guests to reuse bath towels, timing outdoor lights and placing recycling receptacles in all guest rooms. To reduce noise pollution, the hotel prohibits televisions, radios and VCRs on the premises. Guests can take three-hour guided tours along mountainous hiking trails; identify local bird species; get a massage; or participate in yoga, dance or art classes. All 20 rooms feature private balconies with hammocks, reading lights, private bathrooms, wall fans and screened windows.” – USA Travel Tips

thumb7“Serenity has arrived. Materializing like a leafy apparition out of Puerto Rico’s gourgeous karst country, the Casa Grande ought to be on the prescription list of all North American doctors as an antidote for stress and rat-race burnout. Nestled in its own steep-sided valley and run efficiently by an ex-New York lawyer, the Casa is an ecologically congruous hotel that stops you in your tracks, forcing you to slow down and take it easy. While there are no TVs or phones in any of the jungle-esque rooms, there are daily yoga classes, a scrumptious on-site restaurant and every available excuse to sit around all day and do – absolutely nothing. Try it, you might just get hooked.” – Lonely Planet
