Overall a nice place to stay, beware of the rocky road to get there. 5km of rocks, pot holes and mud during rainy season. Minimum size of car rental should be a 4WD Daihatsu Terio. But chances are, you're staying there because you will go to Rincon de la Vieja (10km further up the road) so you'd have to deal... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed & breakfast last week as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We had booked the lodge based on reviews we read on-line, so it seems only in good karma to return the favor to others. Overall, we were very pleasantly surprised with La Posada.

As previous reviews will attest, La Posada is a great little B & B. Luis, Sharon, Peter, and the family could not have been kinder. Most people who travel to CR will tell you that one of the best things about the country is the people and La Posada exemplifies that! Sharon welcomed my family (which included a cranky 2... More

This lovely spot was recommended to us by the proprietor of Hotel Conchal (recommended) where we had been staying in Playa Brasalito. He called ahead for us and arranged our booking for one night and we ended up staying there a whole week! Here's why: This is a very friendly family-run operation and offers accommodation for everyone from couples to... More

I've just returned from a 3 night stay at La Posada el Encuentro with 3 generations of my family, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay!
