About the neighborhood
We're 4.5 miles from downtown Grecia, Alajuela at the end of an all-weather gravel road in the barrio of el Cajon. El Cajon is a quiet and safe neighborhood of mostly small coffee farms. Bus service to Grecia is available on the main road about six hundred meters from the guest house. Our main house is located on the property, on the left in the picture across the valley. The two houses are oriented to afford each a degree of privacy.

This is a great "jumping off point" from which to explore Costa Rica's Central Valley. More information is on our website.
