Pura Vida. 600 sq ft Guest Cabina is located on the edge of a small pueblo in the middle of the largest coffee plantation in Costa Rica. It sleeps four and has hot water. It has a Jacuzzi overlooking a river and an active volcano. This is a unique property. Check out the photos.

The space
The three most unique aspects of this property is:
1. the location, on the private edge of a quaint pueblo in the middle of the largest coffee plantation in Costa Rica (visit www.aquiares.com). You feel like you are in a world apart but civilization is right next door.
2. manicured grounds and endless panoramic views. Many of the tropical flowers throughout the property bloom year 'round.
3. and blessed, quiet privacy while soaking in the balcony hot tub.

Guest access
Unlimited wireless internet is available. The full size kitchen includes a refrigerator with a large freezer plus a cooktop and oven.

Other things to note
While the cabina has a full kitchen and the mini super (grocery store) is nearby, Fernanda will also prepare meals at your request. I encourage you to have at least one meal in her home with her family. It may be the most authentic experience of your entire trip to Costa Rica. Meals are not included in the rental rate but well worth the cost. Discuss any requests directly with Fernanda.

Francis has a reliable SUV and will pick you up at the airport and transport you directly to the cabina ($80) and anywhere you want to visit during your stay. His car is also available for rent should you decide to drive yourself around the local area. If you want to consider this option please ask Fernanda (2556-1849) or me for availability and rates.

Public transportation is also available and reasonably priced. Please provide me with destination specifics if you are interested in this option.
You may want to consider spending two nights if you come to run the Pacuare River. The tour operators usually leave Turrialba at 6 or 7 am and don't return until late afternoon. A good soak in the hot tub after the river run is always relaxing before sleeping to sounds of the Jesus Maria River below.

If you have a hankering to live in Costa Rica, Helen and I will be happy to share our experiences during the past 11 years.

If you are interesting in getting hitched in the Aquiares church we can provide the appropriate references.

Location

Turrialba, Cartago, Costa Rica

The eastern side of Costa Rica is green all year and does not suffer from tourist fatigue. It is a more "authentic" Costa Rica with no US fast food chains or large hotels. The Caribbean coast has beautiful, sandy beaches without the tourist crowds.
Turrialba is located halfway between San Jose and the Caribbean coast via the old highway (exit San Jose through Cartago). Turrialba is set in a bucolic valley and is surrounded by large sugar cane and coffee plantations. It is large enough to have a hospital and numerous doctors and dentists, some of whom speak English (we will provide references).
One of the primary draws for the Turrialba area is white water rafting on the Pacuare River. The only ancient ruins in Costa Rica is located nearby in Guayabo National Park.

Helen and I are retired accountants. We are snowbirds who escape to Costa Rica to avoid the cold and snow of Tehachapi, CA. I am an avid snapshooter and Helen is a great cook - she keeps me fat and happy. Our lives are centered around our children and grandchildren. We built a guest cabina to accommodate friends and family visits. However, it sits empty most of the year. We decided that it was a shame to waste such a beautiful opportunity. The rental income will help alleviate the ongoing monthly costs of maintaining our small home and guest cabina for the entire year.
