Why the Owner Chose Playa Junquillal: The property is utterly quiet with exception of the distant ocean waves and the wildlife. The tranquility is unsurpassed! The creature comforts are all set up in this luxury property. Guests return because they feel at home. The horses are a part of the allure and by the end of your vacation, you will feel they are yours! Freddy is the biggest part of the experience. He too will stay on with a new owner. However, if you are chosing to rent, he will be someone who will provide you with local flavor and service. He is a real Tico with a Pura Vida attitude towards life.
