My sister and I stayed at Freddy's La Puesta Del Sol during the holidays in 2012 and definitely recommend it. This was - thankfully - not in the center of Santa Elena where our first hotel was located. This was slightly outside of the town center which made for a much quieter night sleep! It was only a 10 minute... More

We recently spent three nights at Freddie and Juanita's hotel. They were most attentive to any of our needs or concerns and made us feel right at home. We took Freddie's tour our first morning and were thrilled with his knowledge of the birds and wildlife in the immediate area. A great way to discover some of the sights and... More

Although we didn't stay at this hotel we booked a birding tour with Freddy since he was recommended. I went with my boyfriend who is a hardcore birder and he was super exited. Freddy took us on a 4 hour tour where we saw birds, including Toucans and Motmots, and as a bonus we also saw a sloth and one... More

Though we did not stay in this hotel, my family recently spent a morning with Freddy looking for birds and other creatures in the Santa Elena area. We saw so many birds we would have missed without Freddy and his trusty telescope! He demonstrated his thorough knowledge of birds and wildlife throughout the morning, taking us to various spots where... More

I like this hotel because it was very clean and very quiet for a great nights sleep. The bed and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. Freddie and his family are very nice. Freddie runs guided bird tours and he goes above and beyond to make sure you can find amazing animals. I saw a sloth, and a Quetzel, and... More

We were very pleased to stay at such a clean and "modern" hostel; the rooms being on a par with an economy motel in "the States". It is located outside of the bustle of the main streets of Santa Elena so was quiet and restful, while being a comfortable walk to the main streets for shopping and eating. Enjoyed looking... More

After a long day of travelling we finally reached Santa Elena. It was a very bumpy ride and we were exhausted and didnt book a hotel. When we had our backpacks Freddy approached us and told us about his new hotel for a really good price. He took us in his awesome blue jeep (you definitely gonna love his jeep)... More

During our long and bumpy night ride to Monteverde (if you have ever driven up there you will empathize) we were just informed that our preferred hotel was completely booked out...exhausted and stranded we parked the car in the middle of Monteverde....when suddenly our savior Freddy appeared out of the dark!
