This vacation rental is 2.5 hrs away from the sjo airport with 1 restaurant within 5 minutes drive. There is a 2 mile dirt and gravel road leading up to the homes from the highway. The houses were dusty, the linen, moist and gritty. The towels used to be white and is now closer to gray. AC is restricted to...

Some friends stayed at another area and their photos were incredible and lush and beautiful. And to get to the house you have to go through an abandoned, creepy...

About the neighbourhood
This home is an EASY DRIVE (2 Hrs = 80 Miles) from the SJO Airport and is easy to get to from the main coastal highway. There are several GREAT BEACHES near this home: Playa Bejuco, with its endless shores, shallow bottoms and fun surf, is only 1 mile right in front of the house. 2 Miles away is Playa Esterillos Este and 4 miles from the house is the little fishing village of Esterillos Oeste with its quaint beach and famous tide pools and Sirena (Mermaid Statue). For experienced surfers, famous Playa Hermosa is just 15 Minutes away. This home is located between the busy surf town of Jaco and touristy Manuel Antonio National Beach (abt 20 miles to each) A perfect RETREAT, away from touristy crowds, yet CLOSE TO all the fun activities!
Getting around
YOU WILL NEED Transportation. We can help you with CAR RENTAL at the airport (1.5 Hr drive - Great Roads) or we can arrange for chauffeured transportation with our bilingual drivers that make every trip a fun and relaxing adventure.
