This hotel was started by an expert in pre-Colombian art who set it up as a guesthouse for researchers, archeologists, intelligent. Has a huge collection of local art and archeological reproductions, plus lots of nooks and crannies to sit peacefully and chat or relax. Interior is very spacious and quaint. Lovely outdoor garden area with tiny pool where you can watch the local birdlife. Restaurant is typical Costa Rican food -- good service, inexpensive, tasty, and filling. Ceviche is great.
Excellent gift shop with local art and crafts. Brief walk to downtown area. Gold museum is well worth a visit.
