Vistas del Conde is a beautiful place to stay & Jose is wonderful. It is still a "work in progress" which is exciting. As of December there was renovation underway (additional rooms, landscaping). It was easy for me to get around (UBER as well as a local bus to town) & I had my own room (shared bath with long-term guests). I fell in love with Ana and Carlos, the parents of the hotel owner, Jose. They treated me like a daughter and I enjoyed our time together. My only regret is not being fluent in Spanish because less locals then I thought spoke English. Thank goodness for Google translate.



My time in the hotel was amazing! My host and his family took care of me all the time, they made me feel part of the family. I had opportunity of live their culture from the inside...
Jose Carlos was really flexible with my schedule so I had time to travel around. We also recomend me many places to visit and how to get there.
Monte de la Cruz is a wonderful place in the mountain. There are many places to hike, exercise and meditate. There is also a volcano, a lagoon and some cool green places to take pictures.
I highly recommend this place to experience the "ticos" culture.
Pura vida!



Mi voluntariado en Casa Vistas del Conde fue EXCELENTE! Jose, Don Carlos y Doña Ana unos excelentes anfitriones, me hicieron sentir como en casa, como parte de su familia. Unos compañeros de lujo que terminan siendo amigos: Fran, Alba, Carlos y Diana. Voy a volver sin dudarlo! GRACIAS CASA VISTAS DEL CONDE❤🙌! Mi 2da familia Costarricense!



El mejor voluntariado hecho en mi vida. Una familia hermosa! Unos padres que los sentí casi mios, de hechos son los papis costarricenses, y Jose Carlos, un jefe cercano, amigable, confiable que hizo de mis dias inolvidables. Muchas gracias siempre! Los llevaré en mi corazón y gratitud. Espero volver a verlos nuevamente! Los quiero!!!



Mi experiencia como voluntaria en el hotel Vistas del Conde fue perfecta 💚 el hotel es precioso, el lugar dónde está ubicado, entre árboles y montañas con vistas a San José es realmente mágico y la compañía inmejorable. Voy a echar mucho de menos a jefesito (José Carlos, alguien con quién te puedes reír muchísimo y que además conoce casi cualquier lugar al que quieras ir y te orienta de cómo llegar), a Papi (Don Carlos, con sus deliciosas pizzas y tostadas, siempre haciendo bromas), a Mami (Doña Ana, su amabilidad y dulzura me hicieron sentirme parte de la familia. Y también a Sara, os quier
