About this listing
Private room in comfortable home in quiet Costa Rican neighborhood. Beautiful garden in back, complete with fruit trees. Easy walk to town for access to shopping, banking and restaurants and not far from the entrance to the Tenorio National Park.
Close to town, not far from the Tenorio Volcano National Park for the hike to the Rio Celeste - but - the garden in back of the house makes it seem like a jungle setting.
Free WiFi, access to laundry facilities, free breakfast included in price - with fresh, homemade bread! Free pickup at bus stop, can arrange tours or activities. Off-street parking available.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with guests as much or as little as needed/wanted.
I love my neighborhood! A "working class" neighborhood with a variety of houses and friendly Costa Ricans. Very safe -- no problem walking around anytime, even after dark. It's a great "cultural immersion" and a chance to practice your Spanish.
There is convenient public transit with 10 buses a day that go through town to/from other parts of Costa Rica. Local taxis are also available.
Other Things to Note
Not far from the 18,000 hectare rainforest of the Tenorio National Park and the hike to the beautiful Rio Celeste.
No smoking, no drugs, no "parties" - I would not want to offend my quiet neighbors! It's a simple and quiet life and beautiful for those who are looking for that.
