My husband and I stayed there for about 11 days back in September. I had heard great things about this place from a support group prior to coming but was blown away when we arrived. Ruben and Lorena are such nice people with amazing souls. The staff treated us like family and we felt like we were staying in someone's...

I have never stayed at a recovery center prior to this and I can honestly say from the moment we arrived it felt so comforting....

This is my second time at Che Tica after major surgery and I highly recommend it! Lorena and Ruben treat you like family and the staff is just amazing. Delicious healthy meals are brought to your cottage if you can't make it to the dining room. Awesome Argentinian BBQ on Sundays. Nurse Francis is a gem. Always happy to assist...

Ruben and Lorena are wonderful hosts that make your stay relaxing, comfortable and stress free. Francis is the nurse and will attend to your every need. The food is natural and incredibly delicious. I recommend Chetica for anyone in need of a relaxing and trustworthy surgical recovery experience.

I love coming here! The owners and staff are top notch! Acres and acres to walk and explore. There is not other place like this! I have stayed here twice and it gets better and better! Lots of birds and other wildlife. Food is wonderful and authentic Costa Rican! You can request anything you like, if available!

Che Tica is an older, well established Costa Rican hotel facility. Some of its many themed rooms are undergoing upgrades. The service and food are outstanding. However, it is 20 kilometers from downtown San Jose. That means a $40 round trip taxi fee. You can walk around the grounds, or to a nearby resturuant with great food, but that is...

Is the one word I would use to describe Che Tica. I don't think I would have had such a great appreciation for all the details and thought they have given to their recovery center if I hadn't stayed at another establishment before transferring to Rueben and Lorena's hidden paradise. I truly believe that when I arrived at Che Tica...
