The first place we'd intended to stay cancelled our reservations without notice and we scrambled to find a room at Alegria the night before leaving for our trip. But the experience was so positive we made sure to come back for the last night as well. George is a gracious man who provided a comfortable and clean room and very good breakfast for starters, but was also willing to sit and help us plan out our explorations of the country and give us the benefit of his experience. Since this was our first trip, we avoided several mistakes that we would have walked into. One was our first rental car—Thrifty charged us an excessive "mandatory" insurance fee, but with George's help we took it back and got a good car for a reasonable rate with a Costa Rican company he knows. He also arranged a reliable taxi ride back to the airport at 3:45 in the morning, but had also offered to take us if there were any problem. This B&B will certainly be on our list for the next trip and you can stay there with confidence as well.
