The place is very nice, cozy and well managed. The food is very good and the people are very kind. A wonderful experience! the rooms are well equiped , and the pool very clean. They treat you as if you were the only guest.
The facilities were wonderful. It was like being at home. Staff was great and very easy to converse with in English. Wake up each morning to howler monkeys and fall asleep with tree frogs! Very close to awesome Playa Carrillo. Gracias. Pura vida!

If you prefer to let someone else drive, we can reserve a private shuttle for you which is $240 (1-6 pax) one-way & they pick you up at the airport.
There is also a public shuttle called Interbus that leaves San Jose in the morning. You have to be on their schedule, but it is less expensive at $55/person.
Let us know which option is best for you and we can arrange it for you.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or need some help on planning your trip.
