Tarcoles house description

Casa de e'Smith is an open floor plan home amidst the rain-forest adjacent to Carara National Park. Views of the ocean from most rooms. There is a small river below at the bottom of the property. Poolside deck and terrace offers views of the rain-forest flora, fauna and of course the spectacular sunsets that will amaze you. Macaws fly over daily, Toucans stopping by on occasion, the butterflies... just try and count them! You can see it all from your fabulous private deck that wraps around the back of the house. Keep your camera close by and don't forget your binoculars! Casa de e'Smith's is a nature lovers paradise. Again, don't go without your camera, and binoculars there is always, always something to see.

Jaco Beach is a short 20 min. drive to the South, all the night life you can ask for, during the day a surfer's paradise zip lines, ATV's and nature tours. In between lots of great restaurants with fresh seafood and local fare. Bill-fishing on the 'blue' out of Los Suenos is one of best deep sea fishing spots on the planet. There is something for everyone.

Keywords: Vacation at a custom home in the rain forest of the Central Pacific Coast, with views of the ever-changing ocean, colorful butterflies, birds with breathtaking beauty.... it is, a nature lovers paradise.
