We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Buena Vista prior to our flight home to the UK after 70 days touring Central Amercia. It is located about 5 miles from the airport and a shuttle was included in the room rate and we were transported to...More
This was our first stop in a 2 week four hotel tour of Cost Rica. I wanted something quiet, near to San Jose Airport and a good base to recover from the flight from the Uk on day one and explore either San Jose or...More
The hotel has a really beautiful view of the city. It is especially mesmerizing at night. I stayed here just prior to leaving for returning home. There is a gas station about 3km down the hill on the left hand side for refilling your rental...More

The staff were wonderful about picking us up at the airport at no additional cost. They also offer all sorts of excursions at very reasonable prices. Poaz is usually a 6 hour tour and costs approximately $120.00 for 2 people. The tour also includes a typical lunch. While we were there, Poaz volcano had just erupted causing some damage to the surrounding area. Therefore, we were not able visit this last time. My hope for you is that the clean-up will have been completed prior to your arrival. Staff at Buena Vista might be able to make a special trip from 2 - 6pm for you. However, I would encourage you to go in the morning, if at all possible. That way, you and your daughter will not be rushed and can enjoy the sights better. Also, the fog tends to roll in during the early afternoon making the volcano less visible.
I hope this was helpful and I wish you and your daughter a lovely Costa Rican holiday:-)
