Nuestra estancia en la finca las mariposas fue increíble. Es un lugar hermoso y con vistas maravillosas. La casa esta muy bien equipada y tiene todo para estar completamente a gusto. Es una casa hermosa y lo mejor si uno busca un tiempo tranquilo un poco alejado de la ciudad. José es una persona sumamente amable y dispuesto a ayudarnos en caso de que necesitáramos algo. Con gusto volveríamos a este lugar!!!!
The cabin is rustic but very well equipped and very charming. The location is peaceful and natural, and the surrounding views are truly breathtaking. The winding drive up the mountain to get there is beautiful too. Jose was a great host--very approachable and very helpful. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!
I was great to finally meet both of you. Wish We could have had more time to spend getting more food and fruit maybe next time
We were very happy to stay in this rustic cabin. Amazing mountain view. José is very kind, and we would have liked to stay for a longer time to speak with him. We didn't have time to enjoy our stay. We were there only for sleeping. The cabin is really clean and well equiped.
It was very nice talking to all of you wish We could have ad more time thank you
If you are looking for the REAL Costa Rica, off the beaten path, in a farming community, staying in a rustic cabin with a great host, Jose-then Finca Las Mariposas is for you.
We stayed for three nights and wished we could have stayed a couple more days. Tons to do in the area if you have a rental car, or if you choose to do day trips with Jose. We decided on trips with Jose, and we were not disappointed! We hit up Irazu volcano, Herradura beach, Crocodiles along the Rio Tarcoles, waterfall hike, zip lining and nature hike in Tur di ba (sp?), and great food eaten at the Sodas.
Jose is a great, fun host, who knows the area and country well. We had a blast with him.
Muchas gracias Jose!!
Meget charmerende lille træhytte bygget af genbrugsmaterialer. Indrettet med alt det nødvendige. Udsigten over byens lys om aftenen er fantastisk. José er meget hjælpsom og sød, og sørgede for at vi fik frisk æg og ost.
The little cabin in quite nice…. it is situated in a very pretty place, next to lovely mountain. If you want to explore rural Costa Rica…. this is the place, as Alto Grifo is essentially a farming community. There are steep hills in the area, so get ready to walk up and down some steep hills. The setting and the visual experience quite breathtaking. There is a bus that will take you to the next large town, which is Puriscal, this takes approximately 30minuets. From Puriscal one can travel to San Jose which takes over and hour.
Jose was a good host…. I spent Christmas with him, his family and a young family that was visiting from Canada…. it was nice of him to extend an invitation to me. He also served as a guide… we embarked on a trip to the beach….(it takes well over an hour to reach the Pacific coast) …and a trip to visit a volcano…….
We spent 1 month with 2 kids and 2 cats at Jose and Ana's house - wish we could stay any longer. Well maintained property and area, amazingly beautiful surrounding, friendly owners living up the hill, a lot of privacy and space, save for kids and for pets. The living is huge, 2 bedrooms with nice bamboo beds, also a terrace and a back yard great for kids - we didn't leave the place almost all the time just relaxing the nature, the views - pura vida. The people are very friendly, and no tourists at all. The car is not necessary, however you should mind the hill you'll have to climb on to get to the bus stop and to the nearest grocery. Our daughter, she's 4,5 took 2 breaks to get to the top. Overall fantastic experience!
It was a pleasure for Ana and myself We will take Russian lessons for the next time thank you with all the love for those two wonderful children

This is a great cabin. It's beautifully built from local wood and thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the mountain views. The cabin is a perfect escape from the city to spend some time in nature.
Jose and his family are great hosts. Very friendly people who made sure we had everything and are really fun and interesting to talk to. I'll be back for sure.
Matt you will be always welcomed here
We had a wonderful time in this cabin. Jose and Anna are very nice and friendly. The view at the mountains and the valley is very nice to see. The changes of the clouds and the view at the lights of the cities is beautiful to see. Because of the open structure of the cabin you live nearly in nature.
thank very much we enjoyed your visit, we are already working on the problem
