Located in La Garita, we spent a... More

We used Norma's Villas as our base to tour the central valley and the Pacific coast. The Villa was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the company of others who were staying there. Norma is fantastic! We loved the parrots and the grounds are gorgeous. We liked having the kitchen to make breakfast everyday and even some dinners. Very convenient location,... More
