First time to Costa Rica and have to say La Amistad is the place to stay. Staff was friendly, courteous and hospitable. Matt the owner was great to talk to. Down to earth and didn't mind shooting the breeze with us. Rooms were very great and beds were wonderfully cozy. Food was off the charts. Great cooking. The idea of inclusive for food and alcohol was tops for the price paid. Almost everywhere was within walking distance, so saved on taxi fare. Hotel was quiet for the most part. Only minor beef was the train passing by every so often. It was very minor though compared to everything else. Can't wait to go back next time.
