This two-bedroom unit gets high marks for cleanliness, location, security and outstanding customer service. After my initial inquiry, the customer service manager Nohelia called me rather than emailing me! She answered my questions and then over the weeks that followed, she made our reservations for...More

Great location to walk around town. Friendly and helpful staff. They lined up tours and transportation for us and we're very knowledgable of things to do and not to do in the area.

For a family of 5 this was a good rental. It is in a nice apartment a minute's walk from downtown and close to supermarkets/ restaurants etc., but rather quiet. William, the owner, lived next door to us and was helpful whenever we needed anything....More

Thank you for the kind compliments about the property. Just a few corrections for the benefit of future travelers, however, as there are some very blatant untruths in your review of The Riverbank #1. 1. The bathroom works just like any other bathroom in North...More

About the neighborhood
This area is the adventure capital of Costa Rica. We're so impressed with it that we live here ourselves! There is an endless variety of activities here ranging from white water rafting to zip lining to guided hikes around the volcano, to close up encounters with wild animals, to caving to world famous hot springs and spa facilities... the list goes on and on! Ask us for our vacation planner to help you get a handle on what your options are!
Getting around
The condo is two blocks from the center of town and a short walking distance to restaurants, banks, grocery stores and shops. Some of the activities include transportation from the condo or downtown.Taxis are easily accessible and affordable. We can also arrange private van service to and from the airport or beaches.
Car not needed
How to get there
We can arrange private van service to and from the airport or beaches. We can also save you on your car rental if you prefer to have the flexibility of your own transit.

If you do decide to drive here from San Jose or Liberia, then remember to review the traffic laws and signs before renting and to download updated Costa Rica maps for your GPS as there are few street signs here. In particular, you need to know when to yield on one lane bridges.

If you are on a short vacation, then look into flying to La Fortuna instead of driving; flight schedules are published by Sanza and Nature Air and a 20 minute flight is always better and easier than a drive after your international flight.
