Around Juan Santa María

Alajuela City (0.4 miles from Juan Santamaría International Airport)

Located in Alajuela City, within 7 km of City Mall Alajuela and 8 km of Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium, Around Juan Santa María provides accommodation with a garden and as well as free private parking... This is not a hotel but a big house with comfortable rooms and everything you need: comfortable bed, clean private bathroom, good WiFi and a kitchen fully equipped. It's very close to the airport, you will spend around $3 with Uber to get there. The biggest value, however, is offered by the host, Yadira. She's super kind and friendly, she's been helping us the whole time to show us the best options to get to our next destination. A wonderful person, I cannot recommend this place enough
