                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: I have been traveling to Costa Rica for 40 years. This area is my favorite in Costa Rica. I enjoy surfing and gardening while Im there and speaking Spanish with the locals.

                          Why the Owner Chose Playa Negra:
                          There is a small stream along the property and many old growth trees. Its proximity to the ocean and its undeveloped natural surroundings yet still easily accessible too our nearby towns with an international mix of people.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Open air living is complemented by hammocks with overhead fans while watching the monkeys pass by.
