    Hi, we are a group of friends and we manage a small guest house in Costa Rica, more precisely in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
    The place is pretty small, it only has six rooms for rent and a shared kitchen, two shared bathrooms, and showers. There is a nice big tropical garden with a bunch of fruit trees as well coconut trees, sometimes we also have sloths living in our garden.
    We are 200 mt from the sea and also 300 mt from downtown, we are in the jungle, far away from the noise but at the same time very close to the main facilities.
    We like to do our best to help our travelers feel at home when they're here by creating a friendly and chill-out environment.
    We keep our rooms affordable, the space very clean and friendly for our guests to enjoy their vacation at its best and start traveling again relaxed and not depleted.
