Pool at Las Cumbres Inn San JoseRegistered Nurses

Las Cumbres Inn is an fully accredited 5 MediStar® surgery recovery and dental inn, and the only surgery recovery inn in Costa Rica with a full staff of registered nurses, 24 hour medical care, complete post-op recovery facilities and less than 10 minutes to most doctors, dentists, hospitals and clinics. They are 5 minutes from CIMA hospital, Costa Rica’s major state-of-the-art JCI-accredited hospital.

Licensed and insured

Unlike others, they are fully licensed and insured. They have three licenses: a business license, a health license and a surgery recovery inn license.


Their climate is agreeable and warm year ‘round, which means bringing clothes for warm weather. The nights may be a little cool, so clients should bring a sweater and long pants.
Many patients take in some sightseeing or tours (if surgery, we always recommend before, not after), so you should consider bringing walking shoes and rain protection such as a hat or poncho if desired.
Packing and Special Clothing

Pack lightly, as you will not need a lot of extra clothes while you are here. Post surgery clothing should be loose and comfortable. Pajamas are fine, and a light robe and comfortable slippers are recommended. Loose daytime lounging clothes, shorts, slacks, t-shirts, button shirts and light pullovers are all fine.
If you are having a tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction, loose clothes and button-front shirts are important considering that you will be swollen and have to use a girdle (do not bring your own girdle, the doctor will provide this).  For more comfort, clients may bring men’s sleeveless cotton undershirts to put between the girdle and their skin.  
If you are having a breast augmentation or a face lift, you will need some button-front shirts for easy off and on.  Also if having a face lift, it is suggested you dye your hair (if you need too), because you will not be able to dye your hair for some time following the procedure.  

Massages, Facials and more

Las Cumbres Inn is pleased to offer a full range of massages including Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Thai, Reflexology and Medical massages. They also offer Facials, Pedicures, Manicures, Relaxation Therapy, Microdermabrasion, Cosmetic Makeup and Medical Cover-up.

Computer Hookup

They have high-speed cable internet service here exactly like Roadrunner or any cable service. There is nothing you have to do, just bring your laptop.  It will connect to our internet provider. 

It is important for you to know that we do not have wireless (wi-fi) connectivity, we have cable. It is much more reliable. That means your laptop will need to have the standard Ethernet network card. You can tell if your laptop has one by looking at the plug section for an RJ-45 plug.  It looks exactly like a telephone plug, only a little larger. If you are not sure, you may take the laptop to any computer store with a service department and they can check and put one in if not there.  If you can, please bring an RJ-45 cable (has an RJ-45 plug on each end) which plugs into your laptop and the wall, otherwise we will have one here for you.  
They have the top tier of high speed cable service here, and you can access AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo or other email accounts through your Firefox browser just as you would from anywhere in the world.  In summary, there is nothing to worry about as far as connectivity.  They will take care of you so you can keep in touch with your business, family, and friends.
