We stayed three nights at La Boruca, a family run hotel in the neighborhood of San Jose, Costa Rica. The place was not easy to find, Google Maps route is just approximately correct and a couple of people in the neighborhood we asked had no idea where it was. In the end, we found someone who knew and that saved our day. But it was worth the trouble - this place is a paradise, very quite, with a splendid garden (where we spotted hummingbirds) and quite close to lots of tourist attractions like the Braulio Carrillo National Park, Poas Volcano Park, Irazu, Cartago, Orosi Valley, and more. The owners, Ken and Susana, were very friendly, gave us a plenty of tips on what to visit, helped us with the planning of our trips (incl. lending us a GPS for our rental car) - all in all a great and relaxing stay! In high season, book in advance (http://www.laboruca.com) and ask for directions or have a good GPS in your car.
