Nacientes Palmichal is a community endeavour, part of the non-profit ACTUAR group of lodgings and day tours launched to promote tourism among villagers needing income etc. It is about 90 minutes from San Jose airport, but get a 4x4 and rent a GPS with your car and it will get you there. It is in the hills south of San Jose, lovely site along a roaring little river. Accommodation is basic - bunk beds, double bed, bathroom in the rooms, huge dining hall and even a classroom for groups. There is little if any English spoken, and it is away from any stores or commerce, so I would recommend this for people who know Spanish, or who want a non-tourist experience.
Food was local and good, no alcohol, so bring your own. There are 8 rooms, but only two were occupied when we were there. This place would be especially good for a school group. Not much to do there.
