Welcome to Casa Abierta - Open House!
Relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of our home's tranquil, multi-cultural and open-minded ambiance. Breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads and jams, organic cereals, yogurts and rich Costa Rican coffee.

Casa Abierta is located in one of the best neighborhoods in 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. Our residential complex consists of 9 two-story homes surrounding a central garden, with gated entrance, 24-hour security and private secured parking facilities.
The home is a bit more than 205 square meters (2200 square feet). The first floor consists of a great room (living room and dining room with an adjoining interior garden and patio), guest bath, large modern kitchen with all appliances and utensils, pantry, laundry room and a guest room and bath. Upstairs there is a den/library, large master suite and two guest rooms, each with a queen bed and direct access to an adjoining bath.
The downstairs floors are covered with a rich terra cotta tile while the upstairs floors and built-ins are all of fine Costa Rican hardwoods. Our home is decorated in rich earth tones and features hand carved woods, mimbre, wrought iron, fine fabrics and carpets and a collection of multi-cultural art. Almost all of the furniture was handmade in either Honduras or Costa Rica. There is wireless internet service throughout the home, a wide screen HD television, a music system and a large eclectic selection of music.
We have 2 guest rooms available, each with a queen-size bed, that share an attached bath. If you need space for 1 or 2 guests, please book "Casa Abierta B & B Rm#1" or "Casa Abierta B & B Rm#2".

Casa Abierta is a fine place to stay when visiting San Jose. Mary was gracious and very helpful, the accommodations were clean and comfortable. The internet connection was strong, breakfast was tasty and locally sourced, we would definitely stay at the Casa again.
Have only stayed here very short, but was a really nice an clean house. Very good beds.
Het was een heerlijke start van onze reis in Costa Rica! Omdat Darrylle op reis was nam Mary zijn taken over en dat deed ze perfect, we voelden ons thuis. De dag begint met het beste ontbijt van heel Costa Rica vers klaargemaakt door Maria. De kamer is ruim met een heerlijk bed. Mary heeft ons de buurt laten zien en we zijn de stad in en uitgelopen vanuit het huis. Prima ook om s'avonds terug te lopen. Al met al een heerlijk verblijf en zeker een aanrader!
Staying at Casa Abierta with Mary was absolutely delightful and I would recommend it to anyone visiting San Jose. The space is clean, charming and I felt right at home. The food was fabulous and Mary provided me with exceptional care. Thanks again!
My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Casa Abierta during our 4 days in San Jose. The home is beautiful and safely located; the rooms are clean and comfortable; and the hospitality is outstanding. We were in San Jose over New Year's, and because restaurants were closed for New Year's Eve, the current hostess, Mary, cooked us and the other two guests a dinner! It was like being with family. We felt so welcomed during our entire stay. Maria's breakfasts were delicious--fresh tropical fruit, various yoghurts and granolas, banana bread, tea & coffee, and sometimes rice, beans, and eggs. It was very easy to get into town from Casa Abierta, and Mary gladly help set up our day trip to Arenal Volcano for us. We highly recommend this accommodation! You will not find a better place to stay in San Jose.
It is a lovely and peaceful place in busy San José and could not have been better for a journeys start and end. We enjoyed the very warm welcome and our time with Darrylle and Mary. They took excellent care of us. The room was neat and tasteful decorated. Thank you very much - also for the early trip to the organic food market on Saturday. We enjoyed a wonderful time at Casa Abierta!
A delightful stay! I highly recommend Casa Abierta. Sharing with Darrylle and Mary was the best welcome to Costa Rica. Maria's breakfast was superb. The place is neat and the hosts are wonderful. A lovely experience that I will cherrish! Thanks a lot!!
Wonderful experience to stay with Darryle. His home is lovely and he is very gracious and welcoming. I am looking forward to our next stay.
Our stay with Darrylle was absolutely wonderful. We were so warmly welcome, slept very well as had lively conversation over breakfast. This was the perfect repose after two weeks traveling around Costa Rica. If you are staying in San Jose, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.
The breakfast was also delicious. And our guest room was so comfortable and clean. Darrylle is a wonderful host.
Me and my friend had such a lovely stay at the Casa Abierta. Mary gave us a warm welcome. We only stayed for one night and we will definitely come back.
The breakfast was very outstanding!!
I can highly recommend this place!
