We had left open the last four days of our 2-week stay, and when the time came we decided to make our way to the Turrialba region to enjoy its whitewater rivers and precipitous mountain scenery. Entered the Turrialba B&B without a reservation and, due to the fact that it was hosting an overnight tour group, desk clerk Jose offered us a choice of a room with two singles or a double that would share a bath (although the other double that would share it was vacant). My wife decided that, after 33 years of sharing a bed with me, she could endure a few nights in a single bed rather than suffer the use of a bathroom with strangers, a real no-no for her. The room was spotless and attractively-decorated with a surprising over-abundance of closet and storage space. The tiled bathroom was also immaculate and, added bonus, the toilet would accept the flushing of toilet paper (oh, heart be still!).
We were then welcomed by proprietor Guy who showed us around his very attractive and accommodating facilities that included hot tub, pool table, refrigerator, internet-ready computer, and a phone with toll-free calls to the U.S. Throughout our stay both he and Jose could not have been more attentive and helpful or more gracious with even the dumbest tourist's question. The breakfasts were delicious, abundant and varied, always including juice, fresh fruit and drip-brewed Costa Rican coffee. Our afternoon cervesa breaks were taken on the roof-top deck with its stunning view of the steam-belching Turrialba volcano.
This hotel is just off the one block-square park that is the center of the work-a-day town of Turrialba. We two middle-aged gringos felt completely safe, even at night, and didn't get a single look from the locals as we enjoyed our brief glimpse of a typical Tico town at work, shopping and dining. An unexpected lagniappe was that Saturday happened to be the town's 117th birthday celebrated by an evening fireworks display directly over the park, followed by musical performances throughout the evening that reminded me that it's really time that I took some salsa lessons.
Can't imagine how we could have improved our last four days in the country.
