Casa Rosada was a lovely place to stay. The colorful rooms of pink, purple, yellow and blue with French doors off of the bedroom and living room lead to an open patio where you can enjoy meals, or relax in the hammock or wicker chairs, overlooking the vibrant foliage with the sound of a river flowing below.
A queen bed was comfy. There is a futon/sofa in the living room and an office with desk and chair and dependable wi-fi.
The casita was perched high up on a hill and located in a Tico neighborhood. A bus at the bottom of the hill ran frequently into El Centro. Hiking back up the hill required stamina.
Rose Marie and Glen were great hosts and made sure we were picked up at the airport and had what we needed when we arrived. They also rent their house in Montezuma on the coast where we visited with them for a couple days and had a tour of the town.
