A short 35 minutes from San José International Airport, the lush rolling countryside, with its bountiful fruit orchards and sweeping valley vistas, magically transforms as you ascend the winding mountain road that brings you to the vibrant celestial mosaic that surrounds Vista Atenas B&B.

Stayed here for 2 nights in December, using Atenas as transfer point between San Jose airport and Uvita. We got a ride here from the airport and enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing evening after our flight. We took a taxi into town for dinner where there are a number of good

We enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks at Vista, surprising us every morning with the fantastic view one enjoys here daily. The room was bright, pretty with a very comfortable king size bed and pleasantly quiet during night time. Breakfast always started with fresh fruit and juice, and

Vue près de la piscine.
it's a truly wonderful view both day and night and a decent place to stay but it's located high on a hill top a few miles from center of town. How on earth do you expect to get there and out again if you don't have a car? Yes, i suppose you can walk it but it's a long hike. Do yourself a favor and rent a car.

Hello Federico, I see you received allready some answers to your questions. It's very easy to get you a taxi. Usually people walk down to Atenas center (average walk of 40 minutes, depending on your own 'speed') and come back with a taxi. Jalapeños restaurant is the closest one. You don't need to walk on the street, there are side walks. And there are several other restaurants on the way to the center. The restaurant will call you a taxi to come back to the b&b. Vera

They will pick up at San Jose airport. They usually use Donald. Very nice. I've used Donald for trips in the area as well as to and from Manuel Antonio. Costa Rica has a some tourist bus lines. Check out Gray Lines and Interconnect website for more information. Relatively inexpensive way to get around the country. I would recommend using a bus line to get you from the Caribbean into San Jose. Vista Atenas is locate way up a steep hill. It is walkable, if you are in good shape and not carrying too much. At the bottom of the hill you can catch a local bus into town or have Vera call a cab. Cabs are plentiful in Atenas.
