Respect and take care of the house.
If you want to feel that you are in Costa Rica, go to Gloria’s house. The garden is wonderful with plenty of fruits, plants and flowers that attract birds of all kind and that permits to have a good start in the morning (especially pomelo's fruits...). Gloria gave us perfect informations to find the place and the house is very original with a nice terrace where it’s nice to eat. There was plenty of space for four of us (two teenagers and parents) and enough blankets for the night a little colder. We were there only for two nights so we didn’t cook a lot but everything was there to cook. I really recommend this place. San Miguel is a nice little village and the place is very close to La Paz waterfall where we had a extraordinary experience with toucans and humming-birds. I felt like being in an all inclusive resort just for me and my family. Many thanks Gloria for all the help you have given us to be able to have a good arrival in Costa Rica.
