That was fun to meet you and your Aunt. It was wonderful sharing our experiences with each other. A lot of people don't understand when you have lost a spouse. It was great that you came to visit and share with me. I'm Looking forward to seeing you again. ​

Aspiring Ex-pats second return to Costa Rica was magical. Once again, our gracious host Jeanette and staff facilitated the group as we celebrated our 2nd reunion to La Terraza and Costa Rica. Great food, company, guests, friends, conversation, amongst the backdrop of tropical paradise, what more can anyone wish for? It's Pura Vida!

Excellent - beautiful view; quiet and central. J. was helpful and kind; with lots of knowledge about the area. Well kept property. We are A/C people, but none was needed with the beautiful breezes during the day and especially at night!

We had a wonderful stay here in May of 2011. I'm reviewing it 5 years later because I think it's worthy to let others know about this place.

“The bridge past La Terraza was out, so there may have been less traffic than usual. We needed to take a taxi to Grecia for dinners ($3). Jenetta was very helpful with arranging a driver (Adrian was wonderful!) and van to other parts of the country. Breakfasts were excellent!”
