Norma and Carlos are two of the main features of Norma's Villlas. They are ever welcoming to the Pura Vida lifestyle. A comfortable one bedroom house, a two bedroom or a villa, the total area is rural yet convenient. Easy access to anywhere via the old road to the beach or the Caldera highway. You can do day trips to... More

Norma's Villa served as my launching pad to much of Costa Rica. My wife and I are exploring the possibility of spending considerable in CR. Consequently, I traveled to CR to get a first hand look and feel of the things that make it a significant retirement location. The Villas is located on a main road. Making access to public... More

If you want to experience true Costa Rica - stay with Norma in La Garita. There are those vacationers who stay at the resorts on the beach and see a "tourist" Costa Rica, and then there are those that truly want a Costa Rican vacation - THOSE people - should stay with Norma. Located in La Garita, we spent a... More

We have made frequent trips to Costa Rica to escape the Canadian winter and have settled on Norma's as the ideal setting. It has everything needed for a comfortable, pleasant stay. In our case we do not use a car while there but find that local transportation suits our need perfectly. I particularly appreciated the access to washing facilities as... More

Norma's Villas were quiet, beautiful and clean. The scenery is beautiful. The location of the villas made it easy to travel in any direction and was close to the airport. Norma was always available to answer any questions we had and was an absolute gem. The full kitchen was a plus and we were even able to do laundry in... More

We used Norma's Villas as our base to tour the central valley and the Pacific coast. The Villa was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the company of others who were staying there. Norma is fantastic! We loved the parrots and the grounds are gorgeous. We liked having the kitchen to make breakfast everyday and even some dinners. Very convenient location,... More

My husband and I traveled with another couple to take a break from the hustle and bustle. Norma's Villas provided us with the PERFECT getaway. The villas are spacious, nicely appointed, and very comfortable. The 3 pools on site were immaculately kept...with plenty of hammocks for nature watching, reading, or napping. The grounds were beautifully kept...with so much for a... More

My vacation in late 2008-early 2009 marked my 5th trip to Costa Rica as well as my 5th stay at Norma's Villas. I have stayed anywhere from 4 days to 2 months at Norma's and consider it the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, and beautiful location. As a single female traveler, I felt... More

I just spent a month at Norma's during the off season. Absolutely a great place to stay. Cooking facilities and stand alone homes. Mine was a one bedroom with a combination living room kitchen. Perfect for one or two. The grounds are perfectly maintained as are the units... No heat-- no air-- NONE NEEDED. Perfect weather. Conveniently located to San... More
