My husband and I visited Atenas because our son is attending school there. The inn is beautiful-so homey. Our bedroom was decorated in beautiful taste but most of all, Rita and Frank took great care of us. They arranged a trip to La Paz park and recommended perfect dinner spots. We loved hanging out in their open air living room with them. I have not stayed at an inn with such attentive owners. Atenas is a lovely town about 30 minutes from the airport. Don't stay in San Jose, stay here. The climate is perfect and the flowers are gorgeous. It is the perfect location to explore Costa Rica. Great breakfasts and superb cleanliness.
