We returned six months later and found Casa Abierta, Darrylle, and his other guests welcoming and inclusive. Breakfast with many fruits, cereals, and Maria's perfect Gallo Pinto. Darrylle and Kanti are extremely helpful solving logistics and transportation issues. And the place is just exquisitely lovely.

We had an amazing experience here. Our hosts Darylle and Kanti were the best hosts I've had to date. Darylle was extremely helpful in providing us directions to the place and making sure we were prepared beforehand. Upon arrival they were incredibly welcoming – providing homemade cookies, tea and great conversation. If you are looking to learn, relax and connect...

After reading the hundreds of positive reviews on this site as well as on AirBnB, we booked Casa Abierta without any hesitation. We knew that we would be walking into a beautiful home (the photos don't come close to showing its beauty.) However, we never expected to meet such wonderful people who have become our great friends. Our hosts picked...

After a 2-week tour of Costa Rica, we stayed a few days longer to explore the culture in San Jose. Darrylle welcomed us with a smile and we felt at home with him, Kanti, and Maria for 3 days. We enjoyed interesting conversation, the freshest food, and a spotless room. Having spent several hours reading reviews before choosing Casa Abierta,...

I stayed at Casa Abierta on my recent visit to Costa Rica. Casa Abierta is centrally located close to downtown, the mall, supermarket and ATMs, in a safe neighborhood in a gated community. I was picked up at the airport and was pleasantly surprised to find myself in a house that felt like home right from the start. The house...

What a wonder amidst the bustle of San Jose. Darrylle's attention to decor and cleanliness is impeccable. The rooms are pleasant. The house is inviting and very pleasant to be in. The garden exquisite. And Darrylle himself is an attentive, interesting, and charming host. You will leave replenished and nurtured.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Casa Abierta. Darryle's home was a beautiful, calm oasis in the city of San Jose. Darryle met us each evening with tea and delicious homemade cookies, and we were able to unwind while sitting in the living area that opened to a tropical patio garden, complete with trickling fountain, the sounds of various...

This was our little oasis in San Jose. Crisp and clean, fresh and lovely, can describe all of the amenities, the room and the house.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why stay in the suburbs of Santa Ana and Escazu, far from cultural activities and requiring expensive taxis through heavy traffic to get you where you want to go? We are located in one of the best neighborhoods in the heart of the city - centrally located, safe, quiet and within walking distance to the University of Costa Rica, galleries, museums, parks, theaters, cinemas, fine restaurants, shopping areas and excellent public transportation. At the end of our street is a lovely park that runs along a creek for several blocks. Relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of our home's tranquil, multicultural and open-minded ambiance. Breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads and jams, organic cereals, yogurts and rich Costa Rican coffee, share some stories, explore ideas on how we can develop a better world and enjoy an intimate inside experience of what life can be like in Costa Rica. Casa Abierta is well organized and clean, but relaxed, warm and meant to be enjoyed. Great conversation and daily breakfast are included. Laundry services are available upon request. Although not intrusive on your privacy, our host is available to share interesting conversations and meals and assist you in any way. Easy access to all forms of public transportation. We provide safe, comfortable and efficient airport transfers for a fee and can book other tours and transportation needs. ... more   less
