We really enjoyed having you both as our guests. The nice thing about our guests staying more than one night is that it gives us more time to get to know them. You too, share our love for this beautiful country and hopefully someday soon you will make it your home. We look forward to staying in touch and look...

Unfortunately we stayed here at the tail end of our stay in Costa Rica but were impressed with this inn. The view is wonderful, the outdoor setting is well decorated and well designed for resting and relaxing. Our host, Eleazar was very friendly and accomodating. Made our last days in Costa Rica tremendously enjoyable.

Sold on the hotel by internet reviews and testimonials, we had a one night stay at the Vista Canyon Inn between Tortuguero and Jaco at the end of our holiday, and as we arrived I wondered if we'd got the right place! Situated in an unassuming part of Santa Ana (suburbs of San Jose) and down a dirt track (plenty...

Eleazar and Marsha are two of the most accommodating hosts I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Anytime we went anywhere, they printed detailed directions. They were always available for every need. The breakfast is the best in Costa Rica and the view is incredible! I'll never stay anywhere else when I'm in or around San Jose!

Vista Canyon is a breath of fresh air! Marsha and Eleazar are the most welcoming hosts! Their place is a slice of paradise with a spectacular pool, clean and comfortable rooms, and fantastic rooms! Their staff keeps everything extremely clean and the breakfast they prepared every morning was delicious! They have the best wifi we've encountered and they let us...

While the rooms are attractive, the beds very comfortable, and the breakfast incredibly delicious, top billing must go to Eleazar and Marsha (and Cali Lou, the adorable dog,) the hosts of this surprisingly great spot. They were very attentive to our every need and their enthusiasm for Costa Rica and for their profession was impressive. We also enjoyed a wonderful...

This place is absolutely spectacular. The hospiltality is like nothing I've ever experienced! They are the sweetest people & for the price this is a no brainer.

We arrived at Vista Canyon after a long day at the airport dealing with cancelled flights caused by volcanic ash. Because our re-booked flights were several days later, we had to extend our trip. We could not have asked for a more gracious welcome. Our host Eleazar made us feel at home, and helped us in innumerable ways, including making...

Vista Canyon Inn is a wonderful spot, 20 minutes from the San Jose airport. Located so it is easy to take day trips. If you want to slow down the pace, this is it! Rooms are clean and spacious, and then owners makes you feel as though you are family when you stay here. They know the area and can...

We stumbled upon Vista Canyon Inn when our flights back to the states were cancelled due to a volcanic eruption. We have never been happier to miss a flight. Eleazar was a most gracious host and Rita next door at Casa Bellarita helped with all of the needs that a diverse group of 8 travelers with last minute plan changes...
