Welcome to San Isidro, the largest city in the southern zone of Costa Rica, also affectionately referred to by locals as Perez Zeledon, located in the province of San Jose. In the Valley of the General, surrounded by Talamanca Mountains, the Cordillera de Talamanca is a Mountain range that lies on the border between Costa Rica and Panama. The Hotel Zima is undoubtedly the quietest hotel of the area, with a convenient location nearby to supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants, stores and bars, as well a just meters from the Musoc bus station which provides transportation service between San Jose- San Isidro-San Jose. Many tourists utilize San Isidro del General as a stopping point when traveling between San Jose and other southern Costa Rica destinations such as Dominical, Uvita, Golfito, the Peninsula de Osa and Puerto Jimenez. Perez Zeledon is also great town to prepare for treks to Cerro de la Muerte and Cerro Chirripo, which is Costa Rican's highest peak and most challenging climb. In summer it is possible on clear days to see all across the country (from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea). It would be a pleasure to coordinate your tours to Nauyaca Water Falls (road to Dominical) as well outdoor activities such as bird watching, horseback riding in Las Quebradas Center Biological.

We had 2 beautifully appointed rooms, next to one another, in a lovely garden setting - with a double "swing seat" right outside. A very welcome swim in the small but very clean pool, and an excellent dinner and breakfast. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Perfect for an overnight stay en route to the south

Bed was small (queen maybe) and hard. Room was small, no mini fridge. View from room was bad. Free breakfast was great. For the price, we expected better compared to other places we had stayed at, on our trip through Costa Rica.

Very helpful staff. The restaurant is very good, especially the Italian dishes. Clean, large, comfortable rooms. Good breakfast alternatives. There is a small pool to enjoy. Quiet location which needs some navigation to find.

This is a good, modern hotel in a fairly large and busy commercial center of Costa Rica. It is set off the main street a bit but it is convenient to shopping and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and the food and service at the restaurant was good.
