"Crisp, fresh, elegant, delicious, convenient, quiet, safe..."

Casa de las Tías is all of the above:A peaceful night's sleep in elegant comfort after a day of travel or adventure touring.

The aroma of world-class Costa Rican coffee, a hearty tropical breakfast of outstanding Latin American cuisine, taken in our garden patio. Lush green surroundings just minutes from the best food, shopping, medicine, dentistry, and transportation available in the San José Metropolitan area.

And the care of your hosts Pilar Saavedra-Vela and Xavier Vela, happy to help you with tours, reservations, car rentals and travel tips to make your stay a memorable one.
