The apartment is in a nice area of town near the college. I felt safe at all times coming and going. It was an easy 15-20 minute walk to town center or the buses picked up at the end of the street too. Nearby restaurants, grocery, panaderia, carnaceria and even a swimming pool/bar all in short walking distance. The unit had all the basic necessities from reliable internet to a hot shower. It was my own private cave away from the hostel life of the spanish school I was attending. The whole family is so kind. I was able to do laundry while I was there and even went on one of Paul's organic farm tours at a nearby hotel. Lucy was really helpful and friendly giving me names/numbers to places I asked about. Kimberly, their daughter is so cute and animated, super smart, a complete delight to talk too. Perfect hosts from checking on me from time to time to surprising me with fresh mango and yogurt the first day of my arrival. A+ hospitality!
First of all, Turrialba turned out to be far more than we imagined. Paul's house is directly next to a MASSIVE botanical garden that can take an entire day to walk around! Whitewater rafting in the Pacuare River was one of the most memorable moments of my life; the beauty, the excitement!
Paul was incredibly helpful from the beginning. He gave us detailed directions on how to find his place (in a country with no addresses), gave us many points of interest in the city, and invited us to his Super Bowl party! The hacienda was simple; exactly what we wanted. Thanks for showing us a great time Paul!
Paul was the best host We've ever had. The apartement was easy to find with his description, we had a lot of space and everything is fresh renovated and new. Paul gave us good tipps about trips in Turrialba and organized them for us. He asked us to give him feedback for the apartement and if there is anything to improve. In all we had a very good time in Turrialba and we would defenitely come back if we visit the city.
