Interaction with Guests
We are here to help you make the best of your trip!
We are very open and friendly and we love to spend time with our guests. However, we also understand that travelers need their own space and privacy.
Our family has always been interested in traveling and meeting people from different countries. Over the years, we have hosted more than 20 exchange students from Europe and the USA through programs such as International Studies Abroad (ISA) and American Field Service (AFS), and now we have joined the wonderful Airbnb community.
My parents don't speak English but they are pretty awesome at non-verbal communication! Also, my mom has a special talent to help people learn Spanish (she is super patient and knows how to communicate well using simple words).
Our home is in Montelimar. This is an AWESOME location because you will be less than 2 miles from the center of San Jose. However, it is also a very quiet and safe middle class residential area.
There is a supermarket 250 meters (820 feet) from our home and there is also access to 5 different bus lines going to San Jose, San Pedro, Moravia, Guadalupe and Heredia.
Montelimar is a QUIET suburban neighborhood. This is a SMALL and FRIENDLY community where you will discover what a TRADITIONAL Costa Rican neighborhood is like, while enjoying all the amenities of CITY life.
NEARBY you will find supermarkets, hair salons, a track and soccer field, and fitness centers.
HALF A MILE away (800 meters), you will find Guadalupe's Courthouse and many restaurants, bars, cafeterias, copy centers, convenience stores, a gas station, and the Clinica Catolica hospital.
1.2 MILES AWAY (2km) you will find one of San Jose's newest and largest shopping malls (website hidden) [starbucks, restaurants, cinemas, shopping, etc.]
On Saturdays, there is a farmers market in Guadalupe. Here you will find fresh produce from all over the country. This is a traditional fair and many Costa Ricans spend their Saturday morning shopping and enjoying typical food and beverages.
FROM THE AIRPORT:
(12 miles / 19.3 km)
The best way to get to my house from the airport is just to take a taxi.
The ride from the airport to our house should be between 30 and 45 minutes depending on traffic and no more than $25 - $ 35.
TO and FROM SAN JOSE:
(Distance to downtown San Jose: 1.8 miles / 3 km).
VERY convenient buses and several different bus lines. Also, we are so close to downtown, San Pedro, Moravia, and the center of Guadalupe that many travelers prefer to use taxis (they are quite affordable). You can get downtown for only 5 or 7 dollars depending on traffic.
There are 5 bus lines that connect our home to Guadalupe (downtown), San Pedro, San Jose, Heredia, and Moravia.
