Atenas, Province of Alajuela
Our casita (guesthouse) is in a gated community in the mountains surrounding Atenas, a small rural town in Central Valley.

Atenas is a nice town with many amenities. The casita is located in a nice gated community a couple miles from downtown Atenas - because of some big hills it was a bit too much of a distance for me to walk, but it was definitely doable for those slightly more ambitious than me. The hosts were friendly and helpful,...

Cam, Diane, and Jocelyn are excellent hosts. The casita is perfectly supplied, nothing has been overlooked. With a late evening arrival due to air travel complications, we were pleasantly surprised to find orange juice, cinnamon rolls and coffee already in the kitchen for the next morning. The kitchen is more than adequately supplied should you decide to prepare some of...

The casita is in near perfect condition, well-furnished and includes everything necessary for a trouble-free stay. More importantly, the hosts, Diane and Cameron, were friendly and did not hesitate to answer any questions we had relative to our stay in the Atenas.

Management response:

Don, thought I had responded to your review but it appears not so! Cameron and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you both...very respectful and quiet, yet fun to talk to...we look forward to seeing you again if it works out!
