About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a tranquil farming community. There are a couple of little stores in the area should guests require anything. A bus passes in front of the house at regular intervals. It is less than a five minute drive to the nearest hot springs, where there is also a spa. Wild macaws visit the home throughout the day (they're wild, so their presence is not guaranteed), and guests can watch them at their leisure from the bird observation room.

How to get there
Airport: Juan Santamaria, San Jose: 90.0 km
Head toward Aguas Zarcas from Ciudad Quesada on the main road. Take a left onto a rock road at the Abastecedor San Rafael (it's roughly 6 mi from town; there's a bus stop on the other side of the road). If you hit Los Termales del Bosque, you've gone too far. The house is 1.4 mi/1.8 km from the main road. Just go straight up the road, and it will be on your left. It's the first two-story house, and it's the only one with a wraparound, glass balcony.
