I make a lot of trips to San Jose and usually stay at the Alta in Santa Ana for the view. Last time I went, they were full so I checked out this B&B just up the road towards Escazu. They have the same view as the Alta, but the rooms were better and the price was a lot less. The room was spotless and the beds were great, and they had a lot of nice little details that make this spot very comfortable... and quiet. They serve a fantastic breakfast and the owners are a nice young couple who went out of their way to make me happy - even after I backed into their security gate and dented it :) Sorry!

Out of Bounds has a cool modern simplicity that reflects the best of Costa Rica. The young owners are avid outdoor people with kayaks hanging on the wall and a vehicle that looks like it could go up the side of a volcano. Secure, clean and high on a hill, it has a stunning view of the night lights of San Jose. Breakfast is served on the sheltered deck- healthy CR or American menu. Mateo and Miranda are fluent in Spanish and English and happy to help with any aspect of your trip. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

An absolute gem of a B&B. We needed a base of ops for a week while house/school hunting, so we were looking for economical comfort in a convenient location (Escazu), with a view, and we didn't want to be locked away in a large hotel/resort where you can't tell what country you are in. Found this beautiful B&B in a web search and booked a room shortly after that - we even got a special rate on the large room with the terrace & Matteo picked us up from the airport. The young couple (she's Canadian & he's Costa Rican ) running the B&B also run various adventure tours and they are some of the warmest & nicest people you'll ever meet and sooo helpful (need to rent a cell phone or car? want to zip line through the forest canopy or free-ride down a volcano? have a thousand questions about getting settled in your new country? No Problem). The B&B they've built is very well done and reflects their great taste and attention to detail: orienting the building at an angle to take in the best views; very tasteful decoration using pieces from local artists; great landscaping; superb quality of the linens & mattresses; rocking chairs on the porches; free wireless; a fantastic terrace overlooking the valley on which to have breakfast & coffee or just sit in the sun. The B&B is also walking distance to some nice restaurants and a little commercial area. About 200m away is a dental office (medical & dental is very good in Costa Rica) so it is also uber convenient for dental tourists. Whether you are on honeymoon, house-hunting, adventure tourism, or medical/dental tourism this is a superb B&B and an excellent value.

The absolute best experience traveling to date . The personalized shuttle service to the beautiful hotel that is exquisite in decor and cleanliness . A stunning traditional breakfast on the terrace overlooking the spectacular view . A tour local tour in the Mercedes Unimog 404 and then off to the Volcano and a nature tour which ends at the waterfalls that are incredible . The rooms and service are unmatched in our trek across the country . The over the top help in our language barrier crisis and helping us in our departure mix up was a life saver . The staff speak 3 different languages and their intimate knowledge of the country and its attractions kept us busy with our comprehensive itinerary . They offer so many services in house that it make things very comfortable and convenient . This is a unforgetable experience from start to finish .
