Super convenient airport stay over. The taxi drivers at the airport know El Cacique. Clean, convenient, pretty quiet neighborhood. The price is right!

Johnny's Place was the perfect location for our quick overnight in Alajuela. It is extremely close to the airport (we took a taxi, the fare was less than $4) and walkable to Denny's, where shuttles pickup in early morning. Our flight landed late in the evening and Johnny was there ready to greet us and answer our questions. The location is on a quiet lane and was very secure. We had an early shuttle pickup and made the 5-minute walk easily. I would definitely stay again.

This place is a great value. Convenient, safe, and inexpensive. It is just a good ole basic place to stay near the airport. Johnny works hard to be a great host and he succeeds. The airport is a short distance away but across a highway. I was concerned my daughter needed to do the walk at 3am but security in this zone is good and highway traffic is not as crazy as you might think. It is an adventure. a fun, good value, safe adventure.

If your only concern is the proximity to the SJO airport, then this will be fine. Other than that, it was basic, but that was fine. All we needed was a bed for the night before an early flight. No hot water. Not much around in Alajuela. Communication was a downside, johnnie was welcoming but didn't really communicate. Taking a 6 hour bus ride to San Jose and not having wifi waiting for your host to help out with directions/location and not hearing from him before the bus was annoying and rude to be honest. Very vague answers anyways when wifi became available. Luckily the cab knew El Cacique. Again its only perk is being half a Kilometer from the airport. $3 cab ride to it.

A great spot for airport travel. It's REALLY close to the airport. Less than a mile does make for a cheap cab/uber ride. Clean place with private bath. Walking distance to small grocery around the corner and a restaurant. 2 min cab to more food options at Mango Plaza.

Johnny's place is clean and so close to the airport you can walk it! Great Tico food is just around the corner along with other named eating places. He shares his home with the best cross breeze in CR. But it is Johnny himself who makes it the best and it all "be good!"

I am the owner & host
of Costa Rica Airport Lodge
Locally known as
El Cacique Lodge


LAIDBACK ATTITUDE ATMOSPHERE!
If you suffer from stress, uncertainty or mental issues, then you better take your pill because I don't want to deal with it!

To all the clueless guests: It is not DUST, it is ASH from Turrialba Volcano...
Welcome to CR, SHE is alive!

I did my high school in the US, I´m a General Bilingual Guide, Licensed by The Costarican Tourism Board. Ich kann etwas deutsche spreche, aber nicht so gut! I have been renting private rooms & welcoming travelers from all over the world since 2001!

If the guests are cool, sometimes I share funny stories over a few drinks & listening to good music, but most importantly I like to make sure people are comfy & have a good time while they spend the night! My place sits at a 1000 mts above sea level, giving us fresh evenings all year round! Everything safe & hassle free!
The Airport, Rental car offices, Restaurants, night clubs with live music, ATM´s & even a Casino are walking distance from my place!
