The van from the hotel picked us up at the airport. We went through a downtown area and then up a winding road to the hotel. We were taken to our villa behind the hotel. The villa was spacious with a living room, two double beds, big balcony, and nice bathroom. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the lights of San Jose. The next morning we had a nice breakfast in the dining room, and went on a walk around the property on a little coffee trail. The plants were beautiful. I talked with the gardener a bit, and the whole staff was very friendly. We stayed again the night before we left to go home. We had to get up very early, and the staff had a light breakfast waiting for us even though it was before serving hours. The van then whisked us away in the dark to the airport. My one and only complaint is that the hotel is situated in a residential area so there was a barking dog that woke me up the first night. I can stay home and get that!

We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
