First time to Costa Rica and the La Amistad is the place to stay. Staff was friendly, courteous. Matt the owner is down to earth and a great hang out partner, Don will tell you drop your bags and show you around town.. Rudy at the front desk just makes everything happen from taxis, rooms etc. - he gets it done.. I will definitely stay here again very convenient and away from the city crowd but 5 mins away from the action.. You can stay here for the entire trip or spend 2 days and see the rest of the county and come back prior to flying out of San Jose 20 mins from airport without traffic, $30 dollar cab ride, 1 block from the Hospital. The All Inclusive is not a Buffet it's real Meals steaks, Pork Chop, Surf and Turf etc.
