Duplex, 3 BR, 3.5 bath home in Costa Rica, Los Angeles de San Rafael, Heredia. Home is in gated community of Residencial El Castillo. Lovely area of Costa Rica at higher elevation, 5,000 ft. Forty minutes from the San Jose airport.

In case of confusion, I have just moved from El Roble, which has been listed for the past three years and where I had two wonderful exchanges. I have now moved to a larger home which is near a larger town of Heredia. It is in a gated community with great walking among the trees, off the main road. There is good security with a guard at the entrance of the compound and then an electric "porton" gate to get to the duplex house. I live in one half and an American couple on the other side. I have no pets but the neighbors have a very sweet dog that remains indoors. The closest shopping is the village of San Rafael and bigger town of Heredia within fifteen minutes. We are forty minutes from the San Jose airport, and forty minutes from San Jose. Closest beach is two hours to Jaco. You must have a car here. I have offered my car for exchange in the past or you can rent a car, take buses, taxis and book tours out of the local hotels. There are lots of restaurants in the area and my kitchen would be more than adequate for any cooking you would want to do. The local fruits and vegetables are wonderful and the coffee is great! If you drink spirits, try our Costa Rican Guarro. Pura Vida!
