Pura Vida Hotel is a beautiful B&B located about a 10 minute drive from the airport. We stayed there both the night that we arrived in Costa Rica and the night before we left. Berni and Nih are the perfect hosts and their breakfasts are a delight. Berni was more than happy to take time to talk to us about places to go and what not to miss. Also, he spent quite a bit of time with me talking about life in Costa Rica and the Costa Rican psyche.
We had accommodations in the Katydid Casita. This house had 3 beds in two rooms and a separate sitting room and kitchen. All the rooms were large and it was a real treat to have a lot of space. I really wish that we could have stayed there longer. The breakfast consists of fresh fruit and wonderful delicate bread baked by Nih. Also, the most wonderful coffee that we tasted in the whole country.
Berni arranged for the rental car and it was delivered exactly at the time we were promised. Also, Pura Vida has secure offstreet parking.
All in all I can't think of a better way to begin our trip or better hosts. I would recommend Pura Vida highly, and plan on staying there again.
