I stayed at La Boruca for only one night. I felt welcomed immediately. The room was perfect. The food was delicious. You're a ways out of town, which was perfect for me, but without a car you won't likely be going out and about. I'd happily return.

This was our second stay at La Boruca (each three nights). We were with a group that occupied all four rooms. All group members were equally satisfied with the accommodations (which are spacious, comfortable and clean), the ample daily breakfast (included), and the delicious meal prepared by Kenneth and his wife during one of our nights. We also enjoyed the...

We booked a room at La Boruca to start and end our trip in Costa Rica based on reviews on TripAdvisor and we're glad we did! We stayed for three nights, traveled elsewhere in the country and returned for two nights. It felt like coming home. Kenneth knows the country very well and has worked in tourism for many years,...
