I found this place on the internet and it was my best choice of all of our trip to Costa Rica. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable for a very reasonable price. The area is also very quiet and worth going all that way if you want to sleep in tranquility. With a rental car it wasn't that far from the center of San José. There is really everything we need at La Boruca and Kenneth was very very helpful. He knows the country very well and gave us very useful advice. Plus his wife is a wonderful cook. An excellent breakfast is included in the rate but they can also serve lunch and dinner upon request. We only wish it was warmer during our stay because we would have eaten there every night probably! (the eating area is outdoors, in a beautiful garden (with a roof)).
And if you are going to stay there, I suggest that you go visit two wonderful places in the area of San Isidro de Heredia: SIBU Chocolate Factory (fancy organic chocolate farm) and an American lady's animal shelter where we had the chance to see upclose several sloths, tucans, etc. So that area has alot to offer!
Muchas gracias Kenneth!
