About the Owner

We started by buying a condo and began creating and designing a beautiful living area inside, to match the beauty of the landscaped park lands outside. As more and more folk chose to stay, we created more beautiful properties and a range of complementary services so our guests wouldn't need to worry. We are professional travel planners for anyone needing authentic honest help in Costa Rica & Panama.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Working with Parklands has been wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay at Lapa Premium Condo in Real Cariari, San Jose/Heredia. We came to Costa Rica's Central Valley for dental and family fun. Parklands pays great attention to details and coordination and want to make sure you have the very, very best vacation. They make wonderful arrangements, and we throughly enjoyed every day (my husband and daughter thought the whitewater rafting and zipline were exceptional) Any where we went we felt like a celebrity because we just gave our name and mentioned Parklands to get in to the attraction and were received with a smile and welcome. We had an awesome family vacation in Costa Rica. We loved our stay and highly recommend Parklands; in fact we can't say enough good things about them.

I was about a week in Costa Rica and stayed at Lapa Premium Condo with three of my friends. It is such a clean and beautiful unit, and the location is perfectly close to the Real Cariari mall, shopping, restaurants and bars and supermarket. Buses and taxes too. We felt very comfortable and the bedrooms are lovely. Parklands' personnel treated us outstandingly. Gracias! Excellent! Pura Vida!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for choosing to trust Parklands and book this very safe condo. It was a pleasure to see you all enjoying life for a week in Costa Rica and the location really worked great for you since you didn't have the car, but could use frequent modern public buses nearby. Hope to have you again!


From the Owner

It became available and Parklands decided to create Lapa. A small premium option in a great location.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

You don't need to spend 60+ dollars a day on a rental car when you stay in this amazing new condo. You can walk or take $2 taxis to everything you need. And nice direct buses take you to the airport & into down town San Jose Capital. And so many day tours/excursions can be booked leaving and returning to this condo location or nearby. We can help you with all your ideas and fitting them together. This is the ideal home base for a vacation in Costa Rica!

Located just off Hwy 1 Expressway, 10 minutes directly east of San Jose International Airport & 10 minutes directly north west of downtown San Jose

We scoped out the area for years, and listened to our countless clients who asked for more than a hotel room, but a condo with two bedrooms and two washrooms, and something really nice to relax in, with good technology and high end furnishings, in a very safe area but not isolated like most apartments requiring a car, without inner city pollution, with good views of green Costa Rica, but also within walking distance of restaurants & grocery stores, gyms, movie theaters, and entertainment & bars to be within walking distance. And they also asked for free pick up from their lodging for day excursions. Before even posting this listing, we already had almost solid bookings for the first two months.

From the Owner

We love the close-ness to everything. You don't need a car. You can take public buses in every direction. And Real Cariari Mall is just a few minutes walk with a taxi rank right on location. The community is Costa Rican and professional. Most one day tours leave from the same street. Big multinationals operate nearby making this condo perfect for students or corporate business needs as well. You feel like you are in a partly urban area which is close to downtown and the airport, Heredia and Belen/Lindora.
