I moved to Costa Rica in 2000 with one suitcase and BIG DREAM. Since then I have been operating a B&B with much success and I am enjoying a simple life - my idea of a perfect day is having a full house of joyful people who enjoy the Pura Vida in Costa Rica.
I also have guests who come here for dental work and it is my pleasure to take care of them and making sure that their 'medical vacation' is one to remember in a good way. I serve them food adapted to their condition and show them all the conveniences that they can walk to in our area. I also arrange day trips for them to fill their spare time between doctor's appointments. Everyone receives TLC at Casa Laurin.
