We enjoyed our stay in this mountain retreat. It can be a challenging drive up there but my husband got used to the roads weirdly fast and after that it was all fun - literally there was something fun or a new adventure in any direction you took from the house. The house owner did share useful tips about getting there and going about which was very helpful. Glad we stocked up on our way in Zarcero as the nearest supermarket was at about 20km drive by curvy roads with potholes. The house had an amazing design and mountain views all around. We did enjoy our stay, I gave the house 4 out of 5 stars since in the beginning we had a few technical issues but those were taken care of shortly. The mornings were breathtaking so we enjoyed our morning coffee out on the deck. It was our first time in such climate so we were shocked of the temperature changes, cool nights and mornings and hot days. So by noon it was hot and we generally took off to some adventure, waterfalls everywhere around, older kids did water rafting at Pozo Azul which was great, and since we also had a toddler we stayed at the farm on the premises. We loved it. We did not go gaga for the La Paz waterfall garden tho, I feel it's overrated and overpriced and it's just a nice zoo, but if you have lots of time then it could be a nice place for kids. We did also venture to Arenal (2,5 hr drive) and absolutely loved the Tabaccon hot springs! The 5 nights went fast and in the end we were left with the memorable smells and sounds of the surrounding nature and a great experience.
