My niece & I stayed at Pension Sta Elena this month, and we were so impressed with how wonderful the staff was. Diego in particular was just so helpful in terms of reservations and recommendations. Every time we had a question for him, he was able to give us a solution that was

I had an excellent stay recently at Pension Santa Elena! As a woman traveling alone, I was most appreciative of the kindness, warmth, and hospitality of Michael and Diego, the front desk staff that I encountered most often. These two guys made everything great by being so

The breakfast was provided in the attached food spot Taco! Taco! When I was there, there was a choice of fruit with yoghurt and granola and toast or tacos with eggs. Both were reasonable. I am a vegetarian and so I had both on occasion. They have free coffee all day. As the other respondent said, the shuttle is not free, but I can't really imagine it would be as Santa Elena is way up in the mountains. A resort close to the airport could have a free shuttle theoretically, but I never saw any free shuttles really. There are plenty of transportation options for tours and activities. Sometimes the place that you get the tour will send transport or the kind folks at the pension can help arrange things for you.

Donde keda. Den el numero de ☎
Pues keda prácticamente en el centro de Santa Elena, en la calle de detrás de la iglesia. En Google tiene este teléfono: +506 2645 5051, aunque no lo he encontrado en su web. Yo contacté con ellos por teléfono, así que me figure que lo encontré en Internet... no fue difícil. Debe ser ése... Espero haberte ayudado.
