We found La Boruca through TripAdvisor, and we were very happy with our stay there. We have stayed in many places in Costa Rica, and this was one of the most comfortable and inviting places that we have stayed. For a place to stay near San Jose -- if you don't want to be right in the city (we did not) -- it is perfect. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable, and they are decorated nicely with original art. The beds are very good. They have thought through the details and made these rooms very nice while also making them feel friendly and inviting. The internet access is excellent (we often have had problems with this in other hotels in Costa Rica), and each room has a computer with a large-screen monitor and video and music libraries. Very fun for all of us during our stay. Breakfast was delicious. The owner, Ken was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun to talk with.
While the hotel is a bit our of town, it was easy to find -- even at night. The surrounding area was scenic. The location was a good point from which to set off to the eastern part of the country.
I highly recommend La Boruca as a great place to stay near San Jose.
