We stayed at La Botella de Leche for 1 week in September 2018. Originally we had only booked a few days in Tamarindo, but we loved it so much that we stayed longer. In comparison to other Hostels, I really enjoyed the personal touch - you can feel the passion and joy the owners and staff put into it. We talked so much and felt super safe and well looked after! The Rooms are nice, the kitchen supplies everything you need and the pool and workout area were beyond our expectations. We loved the daily offer of Yoga and workout classes and the staff would always support us in booking the best tours and finding the cheapest transportation to explore Guanacaste. We did not have our own car, but we were super lucky that the owners were driving us up to the best sunset spot in Tamarindo. We loved it! Thank you Marcos and Matias for giving us such a great time. We will be coming back :)
