Blanca and Selvin's is a wonderful place to stay, if you don't require plush creature comforts. This is the real Costa Rica with all aspects: We were in a detached mini-house with a bed room and bathroom, including hot shower and a separated kitchen (stove,...More

In our confirmation e-mail we inform our gasts that reception closes at 5 pm. And if gasts want to check in later then that, we ask them to inform us. And we are happy to stay in for a later check in.
