This hotel was clean and quiet, with friendly staff who are very helpful. It's laid back and feels like home. The breakfast is great. Close to Poas Volcano, La Paz waterfall gardens. Would definitely go back.

Hotel Mi Tierra was an excellent central starting and ending point for exploring Costa Rica. It is less than 10 minutes from the airport and a taxi should not cost more than $8.00 USD from the airport. The hotel service speaks very good English and Ivannia Chaves was a tremendous help with offering budget, middlepoint and pricier transport, tour and...

Not only was Hotel Mi Tierra a perfect place to begin our trip because of the relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff, they became our informal trip planners too. Roberto was incredibly helpful with advice (choosing the Pacific over the Caribbean coast because of weather) and he arranged a fantastic river rafting trip at the last minute for the Rio Pacuare,...
