Jack and Jill live in Escazu, a suburb of San Jose, Costa Rica. Where Jack pretends to protect Ricardo, and Jill barks along but knows better. And all the while do Mateo and Miranda show their guests comfort and art too, only those who dwell long enough get to know Mimi and Cindy, so blessed you wish they were you.... More

Matteo picked us up from the airport and the breakfast was always on time and delicious. The tours were amazing. We booked two of them before we got there and for about 100/each, they were worth it. Tour 1: Zip... More

From the moment I arrived Meranda and the staff at Out of Bounds made me feel like I was at home. My room was clean and cozy and quiet, breakfast in the morning was so delicious (with a view overlooking the valley) and delivered with a smile, wifi throughout the facility made it easy to stay connected and get work...

This place is just as beautiful as the pictures suggest, and far beyond what you can imagine. The view is spectacular, the service is top notch, and the rooms are extremely clean, comfortable and VERY well decorated. I traveled to Costa Rica alone and was looking for a starting place for my 5 week trip. I decided to stay at... More

The rooms, the location and the cost combine to make Out of Bounds as a place definitely worth staying; but it is the excellent service, infused with genuine friendliness and hospitality, that rank Out of Bounds as superb. Staying there, one comes to understand the essence of pura vida.
