Marsha and Eleazar - Owners
Vista Canyon Inn is the culmination of the plans and dreams of two couples from Texas. Located in Santa Ana, a charming town in Costa Rica’s temperate Central Valley. Vista Canyon Inn is just 20-30 minutes from the San Jose International Airport SJO and/or down town San Jose.
Tired of the long hours and stress involved in managing their successful real estate practice. Marsha & Eleazar decided they were ready for a change and new challenge. With support from spouses, Dave & Mayra, Vista Canyon Inn was born!
Neighborhoods in Costa Rica are often home to a wide variety of nationalities, culture and economic status. Our guests enjoy venturing out to take a walk, jog or just to check out the neighborhood and surroundings. The neighbors are kind, friendly people who love visiting with our guests. And, the young people find it a great opportunity to practice their Spanish. Our neighborhood is very eclectic with our immediate neighbors providing a true cultural experience to our guests. Our beautiful boutique hotel is extremely safe and the property secured by a large cement wall with secured gates and doors. Parking is provided within the gates and is free to all guests.
