I stayed here for the last 2 nights in Costa Rica with my family. We got a very pittoresque cabin by the river and it was the most beautiful! Children went playing in the river along with the host family kids. The breakfast was delicious, allthough for our very early last morning they forgot to leave something to eat for us, dispite what was promised.
I am very happy we stayed here our last days, enjoying the sun, the garden and the river, rather than staying in noisy&unsafe city of San Jose (or even Alajuela). Especially if you are travelling with children: NO NOT STAY IN THE CITY, IT IS NOT WORTH IT!
I thought the neighbourhood was not so bad, and we did got some groceries from the tiendas along the road. Very clean and nice kitchen at the main house. Also thanks for the use or the washing machine!
If I ever go back to CR, I will defenitely start my travels from this place.
