In addition to a wonderful breakfast and a large, comfotably room, La Garita allows you to bring your dog, offers a swimming pool and tennis court and a special area where you can park your car safely while you travel. The ambiance is very relaxing. And the rooms are separate from the house which gives you greater privacy. And the... More

The most beautiful property i have ever stayed at while living abroad. We loved it so much we stayed for months. Its over three acres of fruit trees within a private gated property. The rental casitas are modern and equipped with refrigerators, kitchen sink and everything you need to cook. The stove is placed right outside the door so it... More

Being a bit intimidated by San Jose traffic we were seeking a quiet, less conjested area to spend the night before our flight out of the country. La Garita fit the bill. Our room was spacious; we were able to get a good night's sleep without traffic or disco noise. Margarita prepared a bagged breakfast for us the night before... More

Starting/ ending our trip in La Garita was a great option. Besides everything you can read already, some laundry being done, taking us into town (before our rental car arrived) advice what to do & where to go (we wanted to visit a ceramic tile shop, and didn't understand the map :-)). And of course when we left very early,... More

Very nice and comfortable place to stay. We stayed here the first days after arrival in Costa Rica. Received great advice for our trip before and during the stay. Beautiful place, recent furniture, with great garden, spacious clean rooms, nice pool and marvellous fruit-breakfast.

La Garita B&B is located in La Garita, Costa Rica, a mere 20 minutes from the airport. Nicolene and Ard recently bought the farmland and constructed new "bugalow" -styled rooms that are cute, environmentally friendly, and clean. Ard whips up fabulous breakfasts (included in the price) : platters of tropical fruit, egss, french toast, fresh juice. There are two restaurants... More

We stayed here several times during the month december 2008. We used this hotel as our base to visit other places in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The location is about 700 meters above sea level, so it never gets very hot and is even cool at night. The rooms, beds, garden, swimmingpool and breakfast are all very good. The owners... More
