Casa San Rafael is centrally located in beautiful Cuena, perfect for walking and exploring. The staff was exceptional and the room and common areas beautiful. The thick colonial walls and windows blocked out any unwelcome street noise and we slept wonderfully. Mucho gusto!

We took a cab from the airport. It's the easiest way. Just show the driver the address, it works whether he speaks English or not.

No there is no elevator. Casa San Rafael is a restored mansion with easy stairs, and plenty of help for those who need help with baggage.

If they do not have one, I am sure they can refer you to a company that would take you to the port. They are very helpful.
