My wife and I have stayed at Darrylle and Juan Carlo's Casa Abierta several times (we love Costa Rica). I can't imagine anywhere else you'd want to stay if you're in San Jose. The ambience is wonderful. It's so beautifully and tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. The location is perfect in terms of access to anything you might need or anyplace you might want to visit. But all that pales in relation to how welcome and comfortable the hosts make you feel. Their warmth, hospitality, and friendliness make you feel at home the minute you enter the casa. And having lived in Costa Rica for so many years, they are simply founts of information about the best tourist attractions, safe neighborhoods, outstanding restaurants, travel, shopping, day trips, and anything else you might need to know. And the breakfasts that Darrylle prepares are simply scrumptious! We'd often eat out in the lovely patio, surrounded by exotic plants, the gentle music from the fountain, and the songs of the many birds in the area. No sooner do we leave than we're counting the weeks until we can return. Treat yourself royally (at a super low price) and be sure to stay at Casa Abierta the next time you're in Costa Rica.
