I stayed here when I had one extra day after my friends had left CR. The Alvarado family that runs this B&B are extremely nice, charming and have great stories to tell! It was an excellent experience for a solo traveler, they were very helpful pointing me in the right direction and arranging transportation and giving me the straight answer to all my questions. There was another solo traveler while I was there and we were able to explore downtown San Jose together and have dinner (made by Mrs. Alvarado - delicious fish!) I very much enjoyed the experience. Two things to note: if going by yourself, this place is NOT easy to find. Also, there is a lot of flora and fauna on the property so be sure to bring bug spray!!
