Respect and take care of the house.
Gloria went above & beyond hosting for my boyfriend and I. I am in an online course and Gloria helped us find a nearby cafe with internet (and delicious food, coffee and an awesome coffee tour!) - Mi Cafecito.
She recommended a place to buy wifi for the house.
She even let us borrow a GPS and phone because we had trouble getting around on our own.
The house is located IN the rainforest - exactly what we wanted! REAL nature and a TRUE Costa Rican experience. - Gloria and her family provided that for us.
We saw endless species of birds, frogs and beautiful plants.
We visited La Paz waterfalls - which is A MUST for nature and animal lovers.
We forgot to book one last night but Gloria made sure we had a place to stay. We are forever grateful for her hospitality!
We both HIGHLY recommend Casa Tucan if you are looking for the best Costa Rican experience. It is NOT the usual tourist resort or destination - you feel like you are in the rainforest yet safe and in the comforts of a place that truly feels like home.
You are awaken by songs from different birds, howling and singing of monkeys, relaxing rains and bright skies.
I hope we can visit Casa Tucan again so we can be among nature
for a longer period.
Thank you Gloria and familia for a one of a kind experience!
I was relieved that you and Julian really welcomed the experience of the TRUE Costa Rican experience and were not afraid to get off the beaten path, away from all the touristy places and were attune with nature. Thanks for taking time to give a review of your stay. Mi casa es su casa!
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.
