Punta Leona apartment description

Kalinda Pacifica is a nature lovers paradise overlooking the Pacific Ocean and jungle of the Punta Leona Nature Club and Reserve in the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. At Kalinda you are high enough to feel at one with the birds, monkey's passing by, coatis, and lizards, yet low enough to hear the soothing sounds of the ocean. The property features a studio-apartment ideal for couples or solo travelers. Two additional independent bedrooms with A/C, private bathroom and cable TV are available for larger parties (an extra fee will apply). A 10 minute drive through the reserve will take you to the Punta Leona Club Center where restaurants, bars, swimming pools, a convenient store and other amenities are located. A secluded beach can be reached by a 5 min walk from the property, and a 20 min walk (3 min drive) will take you to Playa Blanca, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches where many activities such as snorkeling, surfing, and sea kayaking can be enjoyed. The Punta Leona Reserve Nature Reserve also offers hikes in primary forest, canopy rides, and birdwatching.


Punta Leona Nature Reserve: Punta Leona is home to one of the last remaining primary and secondary forests that are found in the transitional life zone between the rain forests of the Southwest and the dry forests of the Northwest. Punta Leona is an enchanting place to visit for nature lovers, families, and bird watchers, who will be exposed to the biological diversity of Costa Rica. It is home to the rare and endangered Scarlet Macaw as well as over 330 migratory and native bird species. In addition, for those who love to walk, this area offers a spectacular shoreline with several beautiful secluded beaches and reefs to explore. One of these, Playa Blanca, a quiet, pristine, white sand beach, has been denominated a national Marine Wetland area to protect migratory bird species in the lowlands of the river estuary and beach of Playa Blanca.

                  Kalinda Pacifíca is located in the perimeter of the Punta Leona Reserve on the gorgeous Central Pacific coast, 75 min West from the International Airport. The Carara National Park, the Tarcoles River, Playa Jaco, Playa Herradura and Playa Hermosa are 10-20 minutes away from the Punta Leona Entrance. The world-renowned Manuel Antonio National Park is only 90 minutes away. Favorite activities in the area include bird watching, hiking, snorkeling, white water rafting, surfing, canopy and crocodile tours, deep-sea fishing, and jeep jaunts. Golfers will find a championship course in Herradura at which to play. A 10-minute drive from the Punta Leona entrance will take you to the bustling surfing town of Jaco, where you can enjoy boutiques, food shops, bakeries, restaurants, ice-cream parlors, and a Farmers Market on Fridays. A 15-minute drive in the opposite direction will take you to the Tarcoles or La Pista fish stores, where you can buy fresh fish every day from local fishermen.
