Bombero Adventures B&B
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Had a wonderful visit to Costa Rica. Stayed at Bombero B & B with Gary Johnson as host. Excellent location, beautiful views, and expert guidance from Gary about activities. I'm looking forward to a return visit!

We just spent the last two nights staying at the beautiful Bombero Adventures B&B. Our host, Gary Johnson, was gracious, generous and helpful. The room was beautiful, as was the entire B&B. It was quite, relaxing and well situated a 6 minute walk from the beach. I recommend this place unhesitatingly. Gary is very knowledgable about the entire Guanacaste coast, whether it is canopy tours, fishing, surfing, golfing, or sight seeing.

I totally recommend staying at either of these two homes. Facilities were always clean, the beds were very comfortable and the property care taker made our group feel welcome and made our stay exceptional. Gary had all sorts of adventures to recommend and his connections to Costa Rica made it easy for him to make the reservations on a last minute decision.

Room Tip: Before going you need to contact Gary at Bombero Adventures B&B. He will give you all sorts of a...

A group of 8 friends flew to Costa Rica to meet up with friends who had moved to CR permanently - we were intrigued hearing of their wonderful adventures paddle boarding in the bays, wild and successful fishing adventures, travels over the border to nearby Nicaragua, zip lining, Tabacon Hot Springs near Arenal Volcano, outstanding surfing a few hours away at the pristine Nosara Beach, too many adventures waiting for us just to catch a plane and travel! Gary of Bombero Adventures was a first class host, directing us to the best sites,hosting us on an outstanding property with 2 large and beautifully equipped homes, pools, a blocks walk to the beach! First class accommodations, adventures, restaurants, vehicles, ......... and new friends! Definitely worth doing!

4 of us went to Costa Rica in January and absolutely had the vacation of a lifetime, thanks to Gary and the Bombero Adventures B & B. The house was excellent and beautiful with views to die for. We were able to do more activities thn planned due to Gary's planning and contacts. He did everything for us - we just showed up. We will definately return to Costa Rica andBombero Adventures and highly recommend it to one and all!

Beautiful views of the Pacific. Wonderful accommodations. And a great host. You cannot go wrong here! Everything you need is either here or close by. Your host is so very accommodating. He knows the lay of the land, which is great if you want to

We were first time travellers to Costa Rica and we could not have wished for a better introduction through Gary at Bombero B&B to this beautiful country. He graciously offered to meet us at the airport and then spun us in a cocoon of care and safety that extended right through the trip. He even offered a local cell phone and answered promptly every time we called him even after we left the B&B to explore the country on our own, like little kids. The commitment to safety is an extension of his previous life as a fire fighter.The B&B was all that the previous reviews have indicated at a very reasonable price. It's Gary that makes the experience at the B&B so very special. Follow his recommendations and guidance to experience a little piece of heaven (no exaggeration). Planning on going back again!! and again!!

Room Tip: Rooms have A/C units, are clean and SPACIOUS. Very quiet. B&B located on a hill slope that overl...

Two second floor balconies provide breathtaking views of the blue Pacific. The house has all new custom built furniture and GE appliances. Top quality bedding, and linens imported from the US.The villa sleeps 6 in beds and has two inflatable beds for a total of 8. Combine it with Villa Aurelia next door and bring a party of up to 16 guests--6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms 2 kitchens-all for the price of one large house.The pool is surrounded by a stone deck and enjoys a view of the ocean, the village and the surrounding hills- the sunsets will knock you out!We are on the hill just above the tree canopy-close to the village but high enough to enjoy the ocean view-compare to village properties with no view ( or no private pool) and to properties so high on the mountain that walking to the village is impossible. This casa is 8 minutes to the beach on foot, 1 minute by car.Playa Hermosa is the best vacation destination in Costa Rica. Its quiet, safe and is proud to fly the "Blue Flag" for its ecologically clean and safe beach. The surf here is for swimmers, not surfers. On the beach you will find several restaurants. Let us also set up your tours for this area.The village has several American/European restaurants, as well as local eateries. It does not have nightclubs or casinos- you can travel 10 minutes south to Playa del Coco for that. ... more   less
