We want warmly recommend on a special guest house in San Jose, Kosta Rica-“Kaps Place”. We have been there in May 2013, for two nights. We got into a special and unique place, with clean rooms and homely atmosphere. The staff is friendly, kind and helpful. Great place to stay in! (Yair & Irit Rafaeli, Isreal)

This place is spacious, clean and friendly. The place is a maze, with lots of communal spaces, a massive dvd collection, a tv lounge and three kitchens to use. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the free breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend staying here if you go to San Jose.

Karolina and staff are really helpful and super friendly. I was walking everywhere, so the location was good. Good breakfast, clean throughout and nice and quiet at night. Highly recommend this place if you are traveling on a budget, lots of room options to choose from.

Room Tip: I had a room in the main house and you could hear things behind reception, I did not find this bothersome, but noteworthy as others might choose a room in a different location.

The room was slightly small but the public areas are wonderful and staff is really friendly. Location is good as it's not too noisy but well within walking distance of the centre. Strongly recommended.

San Vito Visa Run
San Vito at the top of the world

San Vito at the top of the world

This quarter’s Visa Run was to San Vito, a small (15k population) town about forty minutes from the border with Panama. I read online that it was one of the less traveled borders and that the views getting there were terrific, so I thought, why not? Since the bus to San Vito left about the same time the buses started running where I live in Santa Barbara, I decided to stay in town and take a cab to the terminal. Here’s where I stayed:
Kaps Kitchen Area

I really enjoyed the spaces there. It’s much larger than it seems, there are a couple of hammocks, an area for foos ball and table tennis, rocking chairs, a couple of burbling fountains, and a general sense of relaxed bonhomie that I quite enjoyed. The owners call it a 41-room guest house – and for good reason. The service is the best I’ve yet to experience – relaxed, immediate with multi-lingual people on site. There is a kitchen you can use that even I, the hermit, felt comfortable using, and a 24 hour tea and coffee service. I highly recommend using this as a place to overnight or stay during your visit to Costa Rica. I was so tired I didn’t mind being immediately adjacent to the common area, but if you want quiet just ask for it when making your reservation. It’s close to downtown, easily walkable; and there are many restaurants and museums close by.
