Stayed in the beautiful Katydid casita for first 2 nights of our Costa Rica holiday after full day of travel from UK via Madrid. We chose Pura Vida for the location - so close to the airport and therefore somewhere to recharge the batteries and get acclimatised. The whole family (children 14, 10 and 10) loved it - beautiful birds and plants in the garden, wonderful breakfasts and hosts with a wealth of knowledge about and commitment to the surrounding area. For anyone arriving or departing from San Jose airport this is a perfect stopping off point.
We visited the local school where guests' donations are really helping to make a difference to the kids' educational opportunities. We also took a trip to Zoo Ave - well-run and well-intentioned with lots for the kids to see. They should publicise their conservation work more (which is the main purpose of the place). Berni's recommendations are spot-on so do take time to talk to him and consider what things you would like to do in the area.More
