La Veranera is a gem. Magical. You'll feel immediately at peace. Hosts Jan and Anna are so accommodating. The food is great. Ask about their lemon pie! Try the King room facing the ocean. You'll have the best sleep of your life! I can't wait to return.

Escaping away from the hustle and bustle of other tourist traps, I loved the laid back nature and the feeling I had this piece of world to myself. Wished I could surfed to enjoying the waves. The hotel echoed this nature and would definitely stay again if I was to find myself in that part of the world.

Departed Liberia at 915 AM and arrived SJDL a bit after noon. The cost was $35 and the border crossing went smoothly with their assistance. After lunch and a...
