Who stays at Norma's? Norma's is a community—some folks work in Costa Rica, some come to write a book or learn to paint, or teach themselves to hula hoop.

We are a fifteen-minute drive away from SJO international airport, and the Coca-Cola bus depot is one bus ride away. Folks staying for a couple of weeks, a month or more enjoy Norma's. If you're having a house built in Alajuela, or you're looking for a "home" while you explore Costa Rica, we are centrally located in a quiet Costa Rican town. We're also a good place to get away from it all! Artists and creative types always enjoy Norma's. There are muses here, as well as a large rock that is supposedly haunted! But you tell me if that's true... ------ This Space: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, parking space, kitchen area. Comfortably fit two (a couple). Norma's has three pools (including a very shallow pool for children and wading!), a dance hall area, a tennis court, a small park for kids, and 5 acres of space to roam around!

Nearby, there are some restaurants (known as "sodas" in Costa Rica), the soccer field, karaoke and a winery within walking distance. Small shops and a pharmacy also nearby. Very quaint, very small Costa Rican town. Calm, tranquil. A major bus line right in front going to and from San Jose every day. Other buses going to the beach, to Alajuela, also very convenient! Norma's Villas is situated in the small town of La Garita. Here are some TripAdvisor reviews from people who have stayed with us: "If you want to experience true Costa Rica - stay with Norma in La Garita. There are those vacationers who stay at the resorts on the beach and see a "tourist" Costa Rica, and then there are those that truly want a Costa Rican vacation - THOSE people - should stay with Norma. Located in La Garita, we spent a week eating at the local sodas and experiencing the reality of Costa Rica. Our villa was safe, secure, and TRANQUIL. Mangos off the tree just feet from our front door, and all of the amenities we needed to relax (pool, hammock) right on-site." "The Villas is located on a main road. Making access to public transportation quick and easy. The Villas as maintained in excellent condition. They are well appointed. The large grounds offer boundless access to the beauty of nature. From Norma's I was able to see much of the Central region, San Jose and also travel, using transportation, to Limon and as far south as P. Viejo." Guest AccessThree pools, a communal kitchen/internet/phone area (this is where people usually gather to socialize, even though they may have their own kitchen!), a tennis court, open grounds to collect fruit, a public kitchen and washing machine as well as private ones, a kitchen and bar available for rent for special occasions. Interaction with GuestsNorma is always willing to help you out with directions, things to do, or share a cup of coffee and some cookies. There's a lot of space at Norma's, and the common kitchen/pool area is a common meeting spot. Mingle or go off on your own, whenever you please! The NeighborhoodLa Garita is a small town outside of San Jose. It has a few small shops, a pharmacy, some farms, and a hatchery. It's a quaint Costa Rican town with a church/soccer field at its heart and a small school for grades k-8. Getting AroundA major bus route runs right in front of Norma's!

      The Space**Note: Starting in March, we will have the fastest Internet Costa Rica has to offer!** Welcome to Norma's! We have five (5) studios, 3 1-bedroom houses, and 2 2-bedroom deluxe spaces. Who stays at Norma's? Norma's is a community—some folks work in Costa Rica, some come to write a book or learn to paint, or teach themselves to hula hoop. If you're looking to stay in a quiet town and have plenty of space to roam around, Norma's is the place for you! We provide a relaxing space where you can swim, meditate, learn, or just pick mangos! Norma's is right on the way to Jaco, and near the Poas Volcano and Braulio Carrillo National Park. We are a fifteen-minute drive away from SJO international airport, and the Coca-Cola bus depot is one bus ride away. Folks staying for a couple of weeks, a month or more enjoy Norma's. If you're having a house built in Alajuela, or you're looking for a "home" while you explore Costa Rica, we are centrally located in a quiet Costa Rican town. We're also a good place to get away from it all! Artists and creative types always enjoy Norma's. There are muses here, as well as a large rock that is supposedly haunted! But you tell me if that's true... ------ This Space: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, parking space, kitchen area. Comfortably fit two (a couple). Norma's has three pools (including a very shallow pool for children and wading!), a dance hall area, a tennis court, a small park for kids, and 5 acres of space to roam around! We also have a communal kitchen/Internet/dining area near the pool. This is where the guests at Norma's usually socialize. Nearby, there are some restaurants (known as "sodas" in Costa Rica), the soccer field, karaoke and a winery within walking distance. Small shops and a pharmacy also nearby. Very quaint, very small Costa Rican town. Calm, tranquil. A major bus line right in front going to and from San Jose every day. Other buses going to the beach, to Alajuela, also very convenient! Norma's Villas is situated in the small town of La Garita. Here are some TripAdvisor reviews from people who have stayed with us: "If you want to experience true Costa Rica - stay with Norma in La Garita. There are those vacationers who stay at the resorts on the beach and see a "tourist" Costa Rica, and then there are those that truly want a Costa Rican vacation - THOSE people - should stay with Norma. Located in La Garita, we spent a week eating at the local sodas and experiencing the reality of Costa Rica. Our villa was safe, secure, and TRANQUIL. Mangos off the tree just feet from our front door, and all of the amenities we needed to relax (pool, hammock) right on-site." "The Villas is located on a main road. Making access to public transportation quick and easy. The Villas as maintained in excellent condition. They are well appointed. The large grounds offer boundless access to the beauty of nature. From Norma's I was able to see much of the Central region, San Jose and also travel, using transportation, to Limon and as far south as P. Viejo." Guest AccessThree pools, a communal kitchen/internet/phone area (this is where people usually gather to socialize, even though they may have their own kitchen!), a tennis court, open grounds to collect fruit, a public kitchen and washing machine as well as private ones, a kitchen and bar available for rent for special occasions. Interaction with GuestsNorma is always willing to help you out with directions, things to do, or share a cup of coffee and some cookies. There's a lot of space at Norma's, and the common kitchen/pool area is a common meeting spot. Mingle or go off on your own, whenever you please! The NeighborhoodLa Garita is a small town outside of San Jose. It has a few small shops, a pharmacy, some farms, and a hatchery. It's a quaint Costa Rican town with a church/soccer field at its heart and a small school for grades k-8. Getting AroundA major bus route runs right in front of Norma's! Best of the small town Costa Rica with access to the rest. Other Things to NoteLa Garita is a small town outside of San Jose. It has a few small shops, a pharmacy, some farms, and a hatchery.
