Holiday Rental House
Villa Toucan is one of the 25 beach side villas (as opposed to the 15 mountain side - oceanview villas) in the gated resort community of Bahia Pez Vela, in Playa Ocotal, Guanacaste. The pool, restaurant and beach are a minute walk away. You can wake up in the master bedroom, go outside onto your private balcony and see and hear the ocean and the howler monkeys in the nearby trees. (Of course, the villa is air conditioned and daily maid service is available.) We've also planted many different flowers around Villa Toucan, particularly the kind that attract hummingbirds. As described below you can either partake in many different activities nearby or just relax on the secluded beach and listen to the waves while getting a massage.

You can also rent two and one person kayaks and paddleboards from the nearby office and explore the calm waters off our secluded beach The villa sleeps up to 10 and has three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms in addition to a full kitchen, living room and dining area. One BR has a king bed, one BR has one Queen bed and a fold out futon type thing that makes a large twin (for an adult or two small kids) and the third bedroom has three twin beds (two are pushed together and there is a break filler to make it feel like a queen). The living room couch folds into a queen and we have an air mattress that can be inflated to sleep one more soul. The Villa has a dvd player, bbq, washing machine and dryer, microwave, dishwasher and full set of cookware and dinnerware. Villa Toucan is about a 25 minute drive from the Liberia Airport, just around a point from Playa Ocotal. At low tide you can walk to Playa Ocotal. Otherwise it is a quick drive (or longer walk) to Playa Ocotal which has other hotels and restaurants. Villa Toucan is 4.6 kilometers from Playa del Coco, a bustling village with lots of hotels, restaurants, shops, dive shops and activities. Within 1.5 hour drive of Villa Toucan are three volcanoes (Tenorio, Miravalles and Ricon de la Vieja), several national parks (Palo Verde, Ricon de la Vieja, Tenorio, Miravalles, Guanacaste, Santa Rosa, Playa Grande) and dozens of day trip activities including canopy tours, fishing, horseback riding, rafting, hiking, scuba diving, and turtle watching. The two Costa Rica pre-emiminent tourist destinations: Arenal Volcano and Monteverde Cloud Forest are a 2-3 hour drive away. There is a concierage at the Bahia Pez Vela Resort who can arrange excursions to these and other places. More

Our Costa Rica trip was wonderful! We all had lots of fun and the villa was perfect for us. The villa is only a short drive away from several eco-adventure activities and the onsite amenities were perfect the more lazy days.
