“OK, the drive is a bit of a schlep… having said that, if you are booking Cristal Azul, then you want off the beaten track and you want authentic Costa Rica… and that`s what you get. The roads in Costa Rica are among the worst I have ever driven, but in San Miguel there truly is both a light at the end of the tunnel and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Cristal Azul is PARADISE…”

B. Auld, Toronto Canada

We guarantee; “off the beaten path” takes on a literal meaning here! With no signs pointing the way to everyone who passes through the area, guests are greeted by their hosts upon arrival in San Miguel and shown the road up to Cristal Azul.
