We travelled as a family of 4 (two girls age 9 and 7). What a lovely, warm welcome after a 10 hour flight! Jody and Wilson were fantastic. The girls fell in love with all the pets and horses. Great room, super breakfast. We even went by at the end of the trip to say goodbye. In short, we couldn't...

Highly recomanded place.

Our two nights at Casa Marin were a wonderful transition to our stay in Costa Rica. Jody and Wilson are amazing, caring hosts. I traveled solo with my two young sons and felt instantly at ease with Jody and Wilson. My boys also bonded very quickly with our hosts, as well as their sweet dogs and stunning horses that share...

That is really a great spot when landing in Costa Rica. First of all, Jody offers to fetch you at the airport, much better than taking right away your rental car and searching for Casa Marin (not really easy without GPS). The place itself is lovely. Only 2 independent rooms, pretty large, very clean, opening on the pool. Nice breakfast...

We are in Alajuela and are central to the volcanos, coffee plantations, waterfalls, botantical gardens and other tourist favorites. Casa Marin B&B is located in a tranquil, rural area of Alajuela, yet convenient to restaurants and shopping. We offer two poolside cabinas, one especially for couples, the other for a family of six. Casa Marin B&B is only an hour and a half from the Pacific Beach, two hours from La Fortuna and Volcano Arenal. We want the best possible vacation for our guests and are knowledgeable about hotels and tours in many areas of the country. ... more   less
