The Escazú and Santa Ana areas are awash in modern, business-class chain hotels and upscale boutique options, but this converted wooden home offers something special for those seeking a real Costa Rican experience at a good price. The charming, detached house features a yellow-and-blue exterior and offers cozy rooms and a Costa Rican breakfast. Owners Xavier and Pilar live on site and are very hands-on hosts. The hotel is close to the bustling Escazú intersection, yet feels a world apart with its large garden and quiet, secure grounds.
