Casa Laurin is a beautiful B&B. She was able to accommodate our family of six in three different rooms comfortably. Location is great. There was a local bank, Wal-Mart and plenty restaurants to chose from close to this B&B. Would recommend Casa Laurin to anyone looking for a nice place to while visiting the beautiful country of Costa Rica!

Casa Laurin provides a beautiful, clean, peaceful, and friendly environment to visitors to Costa Rica for the first time. My wife and I spent two weeks with Ginette and her wonderful staff on our first trip. It was too short! Although originally from Canada (and fluent in English, Spanish and French), Ginette was a preview of the true beauty and...

My wife and I have stayed many times in Casa Laurin over the last few years and we love it. It's in a convenient yet relatively quiet location. We always feel very much at home. There aren't many rooms--that's the kind of accommodations we like! We've stayed more than once in each one of the rooms and have found all...

Thank you for your kind words. It means so much, especially from someone who has been here more than once and enjoys it as much a second or third time.
