Depends on their arrival time & how busy my day has been, but I always take a few minutes to welcome the guests & answer their questions!
It is a very small town with a Church, School & a park that used to be a vast coffee plantation.

Other Things to Note
You can always aks Johnny first!
I expect guests to relax & get some rest while they get set to start their vacation or depart CR!
Johnny was kind enough to wait up for us when our flight arrived at midnight. His place is conveniently located very close to the airport. We were able to walk back to the airport in the morning to catch a taxi to the bus station. His place was clean and a comfortable short stay for us.
Perfect place to crash overnight near SJO airport. Very convenient location if you are arriving late and need a place to stay before proceeding with travel plans to Arenal or Monteverde.
This place is a GREAT place to stay when you have a 6:00 am flight out of CR! Johnny called us a cab the afternoon before we left and the cab came at 3:30 in the morning. It is literally five minutes away. The place is clean and comfortable. We took a cab and went to Jalepenos Central downtown the night before. They have really, really good food- and vegetarian options. This was a great, no stress place to be.
Johnny was very nice and made my arrival easy. He showed me a place to get food and ordered me a taxi for the early morning. The room was all you need for the night. Worked out well.
I reserved the wrong date so I did not actually stay with Johnny, but he was very helpful in answering my questions.
Extremely convenient! Only about 3 minutes away from the airport with a cab. He waited up for us, as our plane was delayed an hour. We had reserved a room for our stay on the way back, but we missed our shuttle and had to go straight to the airport. I didn't have any service seeing as I'm from out of the country and had no way to notify him. Sorry! All in all, perfect for a quick rest before heading out for a long day of travel.
Rooms are clean but there is a lot of noise from the outside, but that happens when you are this close to the airport.
