Interaction with Guests
Although not intrusive on your privacy, the hosts are available to share conversations, meals and assist you in any way.
Why stay in the suburbs of Santa Ana and Escazu, far from cultural activities and requiring expensive taxis through heavy traffic to get you where you want to go?
We are in one of the best neighborhoods in the heart of the city – centrally located, safe, quiet and within walking distance to the University of Costa Rica, galleries, museums, parks, theaters, cinemas, fine restaurants, shopping areas and excellent public transportation. At the end of our street is a lovely park that runs along a creek for several blocks.
Secure parking inside our complex with easy access to all forms of public transportation. We can book tours, other transportation needs and provide personal recommendations to the city's best restaurants and cultural activities.
