    Very usefull place close to the airport and as well to the centre of Alajuela. We felt there like in our home. Rooms are little tiny, but one can get better idea like normal Ticos live. We felt very welcome here.

    It's a really affordable option to stay in this area if you don't want to spend a lot of time in your room! It's a bit small if you're travelling with a few people, but it's a great location and clean, has air conditioning, and the money goes...

    The location is great in many ways. Its a neighborhood and I felt like a local rather than a tourist. Close to the airport, walking distance to the local market and downtown and center.

A guesthouse in the heart of Alajuela. Just a few of minutes away from the airport. Great oppurtunity to sleep 1-2 nights after arrival or before departure in a private room in a calm and safe neighbourhood. Perfect to discover the city by walking: Parque Central, restaurants, markets, Shopping Malls, cinema, cafés, ATMs and a lot more are located within 1km. We are thrilled to give you an authentic insight where locals eat, shop und go out. Valle Central as it´s best.
Hello, we are Matthias and Natalia. I am german and Natalia is from Costa Rica. We love travelling. Our international family is a good reason. We live in Germany but Costa Rica is our second home, especially because Natalia´s family and friends from school and university still live in Alajuela. It´s our vision to get you in touch with the great culture and joy of living oft hat beautiful country. Through our guesthouse in Alajuela wem ade a dream come true. Our rooms are set up personal and with love. The guesthouse offers a perfect start or finish of your journey through Costa Rica. We established the ameneties in a way that you can recover very after or before the flight. For us it was crucial that the place has to be very close to the airport. We focus of a cleanliness and high comfort of sleeping. These a key facts we appreciate the most on our trips and we want to offer that to our guests, too. We are looking foward to everyone that we can welcome at Casa Lapa. Our home is your home. Bienvenidos! PURA VIDA!
The house is located in a one-way street. Though it is in the center of town it is very calm apart from the city rush. In the neighbourhood live many families and they are very friendly (like costa rican people in general :)).
