Casa Lima is a small gem BB close to the American Embassy in Costa Rica. The ambiance is very tropical with fish ponds and lush vegetation.

We stayed at Casa Lima for a few days on our trip to Costa Rica. It was 9 of us. We had the most amazing time. Nelson and his crew are amazing. They picked us up from the airport and treated us like royalty. AMAZING!!! I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Costa Rica... :)

I stayed here in May for a dental procedure. I came by my self and was very nervous about being in a foreign country and not speaking spanish. Nelson and Susie made me feel like i was at home. Nelson took and picked me up from most of my appointments. The day I had surgery he helped me out of...

There's no doubt that this B&B's strong point is its staff. Susie (sp?) met us warmly when we first arrived. She and Nelson made us feel very welcome, and accommodated us during our Dental visit. The food in the restaurant was very good. My only caution is that you should understand not to expect rooms ala a 4-star hotel. Small...

We stayed for four days and had no problems or complaints the entire stay. Safe, quiet neighborhood near the US embassy with some restaurants and activities within walking distance. Uber fares were never over $10 USD for going to various places around the city and if you can't get a ride, Nelson or his staff can arrange transport. Clean rooms,...
