We love, love, LOVED staying at Casa Abierta. Darrylle is so kind, so open, so welcoming. We really felt at home. In fact, when we left San Jose to go to Manuel Antonio we missed staying at Casa Abierta. Casa Abierta is beautiful, clean, luxurious, and makes you feel comfortable, like you are at home. The house is located somewhere... More

While we only had the pleasure of staying at Casa Abierta for one magical evening / day, it left a lasting impression. We were greeted warmly at the airport and had the opportunity to get to know Darrylle, what brought him to this corner of the world and different views on life to broaden perspective; just what travel is all...

Darrylle is a wonderful host. The accommodations are perfect and I can't recommend his home enough! I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Darrylle and getting to know him. A new friend for life! Just hope I see him sooner than later. The bed was soft, the pillows perfect, and the shower was heaven!

What can I say? When you are traveling to another country it's always special when a place feels like home. This is the ambience of Casa Abierta. Our host, Darrylle, was most gracious. He keeps a tidy, organized B&B with healthy breakfasts, good conversation and a comfortable setting. Situated in a secure setting in San Pedro, near downtown San Jose,... More

Welcomed with open arms and homemade cookies, my sister and I immediately felt the warmth and beauty of this stopping place and its hosts. A perfect location, as well, to see downtown San Jose and take short trips from. Darrylle is the ultimate example of delightful hospitality. Marvelous!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa Abierta the first night we landed in Costa Rica. This was a brief stopover for us. Our flight got in late and we had to leave very early the next morning in order to make our bus to Monteverde, so we did not have much time to enjoy the wonderful accommodations at Casa... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why stay in the suburbs of Santa Ana and Escazu, far from cultural activities and requiring expensive taxis through heavy traffic to get you where you want to go? We are located in one of the best neighborhoods in the heart of the city - centrally located, safe, quiet and within walking distance to the University of Costa Rica, galleries, museums, parks, theaters, cinemas, fine restaurants, shopping areas and excellent public transportation. At the end of our street is a lovely park that runs along a creek for several blocks. Relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of our home's tranquil, multicultural and open-minded ambiance. Breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads and jams, organic cereals, yogurts and rich Costa Rican coffee, share some stories, explore ideas on how we can develop a better world and enjoy an intimate inside experience of what life can be like in Costa Rica. Casa Abierta is well organized and clean, but relaxed, warm and meant to be enjoyed. Great conversation and daily breakfast are included. Laundry services are available upon request. Although not intrusive on your privacy, our host is available to share interesting conversations and meals and assist you in any way. Easy access to all forms of public transportation. We provide safe, comfortable and efficient airport transfers for a fee and can book other tours and transportation needs. ... more   less
