We were looking for a decent and quiet place along the central coast as a base for tours, along with something economical. We had been in Jaco many times, but only wanted comfort and accessibility, not walking access to the beach. We read the reviews and knew there had to be something to it, but could not understand why this... More

This was our first time renting a villa. I always choose luxury hotels and was nervous about a villa. It is beautiful. There is a maid and for an astronomical fee you can hire a chef. You must have a car. The house has a pool and two outdoor friendly dogs whom my kids still talk about and miss. You... More

We got lost three times trying to find this gem of a B&B. They need to put directional signs because GPS in CR is not reliable. Once we found it, we were swept away. Seven+ acres of forest and old Spanish charm. Erica was chatty and helped us understand the money, the slang, and the culture. Brava!
