Wildlife-birdWildlife around Trapp Family Country Inn

Just one mile from the airport, this is the perfect place to stay, either at the beginning or the end of your trip.  Alajuela is a lively town and it has good shopping and some great local restaurants and cafés to try.  Location wise, it is perfect for visiting San José if you do not want to stay in the city itself, and it is also easy to visit outlying towns and areas such as the volcanos from here, Irazú, Poás and of course the ever popular Arenal – all accessible on day trips.

Within the well-established beautiful gardens, you can relax and take in the sights and sounds of nature.  There is always plenty of birdlife in the gardens and you can start off your spotting list here.  Visit some of the nearby national parks for a more varied insight into the flora and fauna that Costa Rica has to offer.  It’s possible to enjoy several different day trips from the hotel.
