Folks kept telling me of fun things to do in Costa Rica, but I just wanted to get warm in the winter and relax in a comfortable place with a view of the ocean. The hammock by the pool at Villa Alegre fit the bill. Barry and Suzye knew just how to help us find the best of everything in the area, made the calls for us, connected us with trusted drivers and guides. But, most of all, they pampered us to perfection. Our room and private patio were pristine clean and pretty. Every thoughtful detail was in place. There were days there was simply no reason to leave the B&B. Groceries from a store 3 blocks away, free use of the kitchen, FABULOUS breakfasts provided by our hosts as soon as we appeared in the morning, interesting fellow guests from all over the world. My favorite days were in that hammock next to the pool with the ocean in the background.
