We stayed at RainForest Dreams B & B at the beginning and end of our three week venture in Costa Rica in mid January and early February 2011. Initially we were looking for a location of convenience between the airport in San Jose and our travel destinations, but it turned out to be much more than this!
Paul and Carole made us feel very welcome, provided us with advice, delicious breakfasts and a very comfortable accommodation. To stay at RainForest Dreams B & B was a holiday in itself! We are birders and enjoyed the humming-birds, tanagers, Parakeets and many other birds that visit the many tropical plants that Carole grows on the patio. There was also a great variety of birds in the canyon visible by peering over the wall of the terrace. We also birded in the hills on the nearby slope of San Antonio which we reached by public buses.
The rooms are comfortable, there are also sitting room, dining room and patio facilities all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The location is in a safe residential neighbourhood of San Rafel de Escazu, just outside of San Jose. There are efficient and inexpensive taxi services between the two locations - and Paul was happy to assist in these arrangements ahead of time. The B & B is within walking distance of shops and pleasant restaurants.
