Lonely Planet review
Expat owners Nadine, Patrick and their two sheepdogs run this peaceful retreat high above Alajuela. Four spacious bungalows with ultra-modern fixtures and abundant ecofriendly touches (solar hot water, LED lighting, dual-flush toilets) sit astride a verdant hillside. Attractively priced 'Hello-Goodbye' packages and 15-minute airport transfers (US$18 uphill, US$12 downhill) provide incentive to begin and end your travels here.
