When I was in Santa Teresa my wallet was stolen so I was in need of a place to stay on a budget and Martina was gracious enough to let me stay at her place and even pay via paypal.
She also suggested a great hike and set me up with an awesome tour of Corcovado.
I also very much enjoyed the traditional food that is served in her kitchen.
