There is also an abundance of wildlife present including howler monkeys, iguanas, kittens, dogs, fruit bats and parrots that... More

Me and my boyfriend travelled around all of Costa rica but Zula Inn was definitely the best. Avi the owner and his brother Rotem lent us Rotems house for over three weeks and then we moved to the cozy bungalows. The service level and the kindness of those two were amazing. We recommend everyone to stay at Zula, the bungalows... More

This hotel is the best hotel as far in our trip. We are backpackers and it was a very raisonnable price. The room was very clean, there was a little kitchen so we could cook our meals. There are mates everyday too. The bathroom is big and clean, and water is pretty hot. There is a common place with a... More

We spent 6 nights at the Zula Inn. It was great. The Inn is just off a busy main road making it feel like a little oasis. The Inn itself is clean and well kept. A beautiful garden ensures each cottage is private and the pool area a wonderful retreat. Above all - Avi, his family and staff - made... More

This trip to Costa Rica was a surprise birthday gift from my fiance. The owners and staff at the Zula Inn made our stay special - above and beyond their already high quality services and hospitality. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, quiet and comfortable and very clean. The beach was easily accessible right across the street and the best... More

I spent months planning this trip, unfortunately I chose the wrong week. My husband and I arrived on Monday afternoon and made the couple hour trek from San Jose. When we arrived it was overcast and a little rainy but I was not worried, thought to myself, let it rain today since we are just traveling and let the sun... More
