As an affordable final destination, it is a safe home base for day trips to many central Costa Rica attractions or for business travel into San Jose. Villa Magarita offers large, comfortable, airy rooms with high-speed Internet and a personalized complete breakfast cooked by Margarita herself! Enjoy the cool evening breezes and lively conversation with other guests in the rancho breakfast bar or find solitude at your own patio with table and chairs. Take a stroll around Margarita's gardens, play a game of tennis, or take a dip in the pool!

A very good option if you don't plan to visit San Jose but go either to the caribean coast (which we didn't do) or to Sarapiqui, La Fortuna... The owner is very helpful and welcoming. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. close to the airport.
