Twighlight Zone in Central Costa Rica

We liked the vibe the minute we got here. Trip thru the trippy topiary, get great, fresh, organic cheese and produce, have SUPER cheap food and drink and stay in a quaint hotel. We relaxed here for a day and 1/2. That's really about all you need. But we felt like we got a glimpse of rural life in CR and didn't see any other tourists.
