VILLAS JOSIPEK, is a project with 100% Costa Rican capital.
Its name is due to the mix of the names of the family of Sr. Jorge (Owner), his wife andhis three daughters: JOrge, SIony, Pamela, Eunice and Karla.
It arose because Don Jorge was Director of the COTAI School in Ciudad Quesada, a position he held for the last 12 years until he was retired. As the time of hisretirement approached, he decided to buy a property that would keep him busy once he retired, because he has always been a very active and dynamic person, and although they have had a house in Alajuela since 1978, the idea was to continue living in the rural area; this is why they bought the 9.2 hectares property where VILLAS JOSIPEK is located now.
When they bought the property, it was an abandoned farm that only had potable water. Three years after their purchase, they installed power and phone services, paved the gravel road and built the two-storey, 4 bedroom house with Jorge’s family and possible guests in mind.
At that time, the daughters began their university studies being forced to leave for their home in Alajuela and as the tourism boom in La Fortuna de San Carlos began, they thought it was a shame to leave the house equipped abandoned, that’s how they decided with the economy that they had and a small financing to make five villas and the pool, and they began to offer the lodging service.
Demand has constantly been growing, generating the need for new villas. Another two villas were built along with the restaurant, pool terrace and the reception area. Over time, they added three rooms with air conditioning and without kitchens for the guests who are not interested in cooking for themselves. In 2017 Villas Josipek added four more bungalows; the Master Bungalows.
As an added value to the hosting service that is provided and with the objective of publicizing, conserving, collecting, protecting and increasing visitors’ love for nature and natural resources, with the advice of INBioparque technicians, it was built The sectorized Botanical Garden, where there are a variety of plants and trees endangered
