Costa Rica is a beautiful country with so many choices of things to do. Unfortunately, many of them involve 4-5 hour road trips, which will provide spectacular scenic views, but many opportunities for car sickness. Flying in to Juan Santamaria Intl Airport, taking a 15-20min shuttle to Hotel BuenaVista, and daytripping from there to Poas, Irazu, coffee plantations, San Jose, etc would be one way to avoid the road trips. Not to mention the spectacular views the hotel has to offer itself. I definitely will consider this for our next trip. Consider the villas (completed 11/2010) for more luxury, definitely a balcony room for the best views. 2 parents, 2 ACTIVE boys, 6&8, balcony room 213/215. Restaurant is excellent, tambien!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The comment ofter heard in this hotel is, "We feel like we are at home." This is exactly the impression the management and staff of the Buena Vista strive to create. We are high on the summit of a mountain with a climate of eternal spring yet only fifteen minutes drive from the International Airport below. We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
