hostess with the mostess (i hope)

francoise, mastermind of casita de las flores san miguel, with a friend.

me and a friend in Costa Rica

Hola. I am responsible for all of this. I compiled the information/silliness and took the photos (except where otherwise noted). In spite of my innate bashfulness, I finally put my face on the site (people have asked for this, God knows why). But you’ll have to guess which one is me.

I’m a writer, photographer, designer, entrepreneur, travel junkie, and professional dabbler. I started Casita de las Flores from scratch in 2002, and then ran it pretty much by myself for 7 years—24/7, no breaks. Now, I finally get to travel a bit, so please do not be offended if I don’t make an appearance during your stay. I promise you will be well taken care of by Flor, my bilingual right hand lady, and our wonderful staff.

No matter where I am, I’m still hovering over the Casita— like a fairy travel godmother — making sure that things run smoothly and fervently hoping you’ll enjoy your stay. You can always reach me at CasitadelasFlores(at) if you need anything. (Especially if you want to send lavish praise. : )

And please, always remember that we really do care about you having a great stay with us, so please give us a chance to solve any problems you may encounter while you’re here, before giving us a bad review. (If we ignore you, you can totally trash us.)

Good reviews on TripAdvisor are truly, madly, deeply appreciated.

Wishing you happy travels and many adventures!
