My travels have taken me to different types of destinations over the years. While climates, attractions, amenities and a myriad of other reasons to travel among different locations are so different from one another, I always look for a constant. Genuine care from any service provider that I patronize.  Last year, my travels took me to Costa Rica. I have... More

It is difficult to describe all the great things about Out of Bounds Lodge. Don't let the name scare you away thinking it is a a backpackers hangout. The owners, Matt & Meranda, the watchman Ricardo, were more than accommodating. The location is perfect for me, on the bus line to everywhere- restaurants, shopping. Very comfortable beds, clean and tastefully... More

My husband and I stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica, before flying out of San Jose. We wished we had the chance to stay here longer, the rooms were simply, yet nicely decorated and very clean. The rooms had an earthy yet modern feel. We were shown rooms ahead of choosing, and we were served a wonderful... More

Matteo was awesome. We stayed there our first and last night and he was very timely on all of our airport arrivals and departures. The room was nice and breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend.

Miranda and Matteo are wonderful host and go out of their way to please. This was so evident in handling a situation that could have been very troublesome. Matteo took me to the airport in the Out Of Bounds van after he helped me with my bags we said our good bye with his reminding me to make sure I... More

The owners were so nice and helpful. It was very relaxing and the views were excellent. I loved relaxing on the porch with the views. It wouldn't bea place to hang out and do things but is a great place to relax after traveling. I loved the bathroom. It was cute.

This place is in a gorgeous location on the hillside looking out over the valley and has quiet modern rooms (with nice art and very comfortable beds) and a big terrace with great views. The most relaxing place I stayed in my whole trip! All the staff were really nice, especially the incredibly friendly and helpful owners who really made... More

From the minute we stepped through the gate of this amazing Bed and Breakfast, we felt instantly secure and relaxed. The friendly owners greeted us and, having heard that it was our long-awaited honeymoon, they upgraded us to a suite. The rooms are VERY clean (and we're picky), and are decorated with fresh colours. We slept soundly in the plush... More
