I am reluctant to post this

We recently returned from Montezuma and we stayed at Casa Colores. I have to admit that I was more than impressed with the area as well as Casa Colores. I will go first with the area, this was my 10th visit to this incredible country. I had not been to this area in particular, The beaches were spectacular and My wife and I added another "have to return to" area. I really wanted to talk about Casa Colores. They are about a mile out of Montezuma proper, up on the hill. The owners Ruben and his wife Catrine have built a wonderful place for people to enjoy Costa Rica. They have I believe 6 cabins and a pool. The location is great for cooling down in the evenning. I am reluctant to post this because I want to go back and be able to get to stay there again. As you can tell we were more than happy with all they have to offer and assist you with so willingly!!!

Glad to read that you had such a great experience. Although, I admit, I am not sure why you are reluctant to post it.

Are you afraid that you'll contribute to the discovery of some hidden gem? If so, don't be - Montezuma has been on the radar of most CR tourists for decades. I am also sure that Casa Colores can deal with a few more positive reviews...

I'm with Framp, don't be reluctant at all. Hidden gems are great to hear about. For me that's what I want to hear more than anything else. Thanks for telling us about it.

But that is precisely why he does not want to post it :) he wants it to remain a hidden gem and not become a victim of its own success.

But Bob, thanks for posting. the place is probably exactly what some people are looking for.

I was confused by the title as well. Many won't click on it since they won't know what your posting is about. If you'd titled it "Casa Colores is AWESOME!" it'd be super useful and I'm sure they'd love you even more :)

Be sure to go and give them a good review!

I know the area is semi-popular as a tourist destination, but it's been a hidden gem for ages and I'm sure it will continuer to be for a long while.

Bob, Thank You for revealing your hidden gem. I am sure that owners will remember you when their place will start filling up, and save you a cabin.

Thank you all for reading and understanding my intent. We loved the place and the owners. They will have to build some addittional cabins.....I figured the title would get a few serious peoples interest and it did.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the area and I totally hear you about the reluctance to post a treasure. So many hidden 'gems' and some owners of these places like to keep things to a dull roar and some are seriously 'hungry for business'! You let the cat out of the bag now!

Con mucho gusto bob. I even went and read the reviews. Leaving for CR in 3 sleeps and already planning next trip. Sickness it is.

Casa Colores. (.house of colours ) is right up my alley. I pick spots by the colours.
