About the neighbourhood
2 miles (3.4 km) from Atenas central and a quick 6 minute drive, Villa Serenidad is the epitome of quiet and relaxing. We're near the end of a dead end road. It's not uncommon to go a full day without hearing a car. Our closest neighbor in view from the pool or patio is over 1/4 mile away across the river gorge. Atenas, famous as the Best Climate in the World according to National Geographic Magazine is a tranquil community with fresh markets, a Friday farmers market, numerous restaurants and small shops and importantly a wonderful community of ticos and expats. Immerse yourself in the Costa Rican culture or enjoy the many establishments run by expats. Either way, the people here are fantastic!
Getting around
We prefer to have a car in Atenas but if you read around on the various forums, a number of people use taxi's, walk and or use the public transportation system.
