Dominical villa description

Villa Solo Bueno means 'All is Well' and you will see why when you visit our little slice of heaven. Located on the side of a jungle-covered mountain almost every room in our villa has a fabulous view of the Pacific. Immediately adjacent to a green belt on the top tier of the Canto del Mar (Song of the Sea) gated community, it is safe, secure, and rich with wildlife.

Overwhelm your senses. Turn off the a.c. and open the windows and doors. Hear the call of the toucans and howler monkeys. Fall asleep to the sounds of the dink frogs and the waves lapping the shore below. Smell the fragrant aroma of the Ylang Ylang tree, inspiration for Chanel No. 5 perfume. Take a cool dip in your private plunge pool. Have some fun trying to spot our resident three-toed tree sloth, white-faced monkeys or toucans in the trees above – all commonly seen from the patio of our villa.

Area Activities: You will be amazed at the variety of adventure so close at hand. Horse back riding to secluded water falls with breakfast and lunch included; hiking, nature photography; pristine white water rafting on class III and IV rapids where you won't see anyone else all day, includes breakfast and lunch; zip lining through the jungle; ocean kayaking; exploring sea caves; snorkeling; scuba diving; and of course salt water fishing.

If you are a surfer, or wish to try it, we can connect you with surf instructors. The surf at Playa Dominical (4 km north) can get over 10' depending on swell conditions. The surf at Playa Dominicalito, a 10 minute walk down from our villa, is ideal for learning with waves to 5+ ft. depending on swell conditions. Playa Hermosa, located about 10 km south, is also very popular. Boogie boarding is widely enjoyed at these beaches, although the rip tides at Playa Dominical make it unsafe for inexperienced swimmers during low tide.

Area Birding: Costa Rica is only about the size of West Virginia, yet has more than 830 species of birds. If you are a serious birder, Costa Rica is the pinnacle adventure. The owners are life-long birders and can help you with resident guides so that you will spot many of the 350 species in our immediate area. If you are driving to Dominical from San Jose, we can also tell you where you will have a good chance of seeing the Resplendent Quetzal along the way.

One note of caution about Villa Solo Bueno - the Chestnut Billed Toucans might interrupt the occasional siesta as they communicate with each other in the trees above.

Area restaurants : There are dining options in the area to suit every pallet and budget; From funky surfer shacks that serve a great breakfast on the Dominical beach to more upscale French/Canadian, Italian and fresh seafood restaurants serving fabulous fresh food al fresco style. A list of our favorites is kept in the villa for your reference and our on-site concierge can make the reservations, if needed.

                      Car: Recommended

                      With soaring secondary growth trees overhead and fabulous views of the Pacific 100 meters below, Villa Solo Bueno is built on a ridge in the Fila Costena...where the mountains meet the sea. Now that the Costanera highway (the Hwy 1 of Costa Rica) is complete, we are a quick 30 minutes south of Quepos, where Manuel Antonio National Park is located. We enjoy the natural beauty of our famous neighbor, but travelling south you will find a laid back, much more authentic Costa Rica.

                      Centrally located, the Dominical area is the perfect base for exploring Manuel Antonio National Park, Ballena Marine National Marine Park, Hacienda Baru and the Osa Peninsula ('the most biologically intense area on the planet' as cited by National Geographic). At Villa Solo Bueno you will truly come to understand the meaning of the words, Pura Vida.

                      Other Activities: surfing, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, birding, wild life guided hikes, boogie boarding
