    Wonderful place in a gorgeous setting. No air-conditioning, but overhead fans helped a lot. That’s part of the eco-friendliness, I realize!

    Beautiful property. Nice location. Owned by a very sweet family. Only thing that would’ve enhanced our experience would’ve been a/c. It was very hot/muggy in our bungalow, but it was a wonderful experience otherwise.

    This property was well kept, with nice rooms and lovely landscaping. I felt mostly disappointed with it because it did not feel kid-friendly (despite sounding like it would be), and our family was not welcome to visit us without giving all of their passport information (something they did not feel comfortable with). Ultimately, we decided on the property because we had family staying next door— but I would not choose it again because it didn’t truly feel family friendly.

    Pura Vida Experience at La Rana

    Loved my stay here, so peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle. I found the owners very pleasant and they helped me out with a tip on where to buy locally crafted wood furniture for my holiday casa I purchased around the corner, this was very much appreciated. La Rana is surrounded by pura vida, listening to the changes at dusk and knowing it was 4:30am when the howler monkeys started up is an amazing experience. Breakfast was a treat and pool was refreshing. Highly recommended. Good wifi onsite too. No cable or TV which is how it should be when you want to experience pura vida :). Thanks for the great stay!
