    We will be arriving in San Jose on January 19th and need a hotel for one night prior to moving on to Manuel Antonio. Like the sounds of this hotel; are their any shops, restaurants, etc within walking distance? We are from Canada and noticed the owners are also originally from Canada - we would like to support them for sure. Thank you Mary and Ken
