If you are a nature lover then you are definitely looking in the right place. I stayed here next to a couple of girlfriends and we are glad to say it couldn't have been any better! This location is known to be a friendly village...More

The place is big and spacious and clean and has a lovely balcony where me and my friends had breakfast. The house is very cool, comfortable and peaceful surrounded by the nature! And it has a nice swimming pool!

About the neighbourhood
Calle Mimi is a long dirt road within a close knit community just 3kms from the centre of Atenas. The neighbourhood is very quiet with the sounds of crickets, birds and running water not to mention the chickens. The nearby river adds a coolness to the soft and constant breeze.

You can make your way to Atenas, a very traditional, quaint little town where you can eat traditional food or enjoy some time in the central park. The farmers market is open on Friday mornings until midday and is the perfect place to findinteresting local fresh fruits and vegetables.
Getting around
While it is possible to get into town walking, you may be forced to walk through the gutters part of the way. The rest of the walk is rather pleasant, crossing some rivers.

The best way would be to have a car although taking day trips by bus is a completely pleasant experience. Atenas is ideally situated to visit the Poás Volcano national Park, take a day trip to San Ramon, visit the train museum, even day trips to Areal Volcano and Nicoya are possible. Many visitors take trips to the variety of beaches, Puerto Caldera, Playa Doña Ana, Jacó, Herradura, Playa Hermosa and Esterillos during their stay, all of which are more or less within an hours drive and can be reached by bus (which is comfortable and reasonably priced)

Just after the toll, take a right along the Radial Atenas until you hit a stop street at the top of a small hill.

Take the second right with the church in front and to the left and the park in front and to the right. Continue 2 blocks to the t-junction and take a left and then the very first right just before the flashing light.

Continue along this road and take a right at the church (there is a mini supermarket on the left). Continue along this road, cross the bridge and as you start to go up a rather steep hi...
