Outside was ironwood decking and then a grassy area with loungers. The apartment was very clean with insect screens on all doors...

We booked a last-minute two nights at Fidelito while driving from Tamarindo to the Southern Nicoya peninsula and consider ourselves extremely lucky for having come across the place, with its unique setting, ideal location, wonderful hosts, and reasonable prices, certainly if compared to other options in Santa Teresa and Malpais. As a working ranch in the hills above Tambor coast,...

What a great place to be at! Leon and Brigitte make it real personal, showing our kids how to milk a cow, great conversations and good tips on what to do and see. Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable.
