The staff was fabulous, very friendly and knowledgeable. Coco was our patient and friendly driver to the La Paz Waterfall park. He also shuttled us to and from the airport. The first night we stayed in the older rooms, but they happily changed our reservation...More
Our tour group stayed the night for our first and final days of our two-week tour. The first night was problematic for some people in our group, but they seemed to be able to iron out the problems, eventually. Our room was the first one...More
Hotel staff was very attentive. The hotel was clean and well maintained. They are a bit off the beaten path - up on a ridge in Alajuela - but have a shuttle service to and from the airport. It was a good way to start...More
We have just spent 3 nights at the Buena Vista hotel, which was excellent in every way. The hotel is set in a garden in the coffee plantation area in the hills above Alajuela. It is quiet, has lovely views across to San Jose and...More
This is a great place to stay on your way into and out of CR. We arrived with our 2 kids late at night, tired. The kitchen was closed but the owners graciously allowed us to order dinner. The pool hours were also over, but...More

The staff were wonderful about picking us up at the airport at no additional cost. They also offer all sorts of excursions at very reasonable prices. Poaz is usually a 6 hour tour and costs approximately $120.00 for 2 people. The tour also includes a typical lunch. While we were there, Poaz volcano had just erupted causing some damage to the surrounding area. Therefore, we were not able visit this last time. My hope for you is that the clean-up will have been completed prior to your arrival. Staff at Buena Vista might be able to make a special trip from 2 - 6pm for you. However, I would encourage you to go in the morning, if at all possible. That way, you and your daughter will not be rushed and can enjoy the sights better. Also, the fog tends to roll in during the early afternoon making the volcano less visible.
I hope this was helpful and I wish you and your daughter a lovely Costa Rican holiday:-)
