Our week here was great. The Villa is very nice, clean and very convenient to the beaches, coastal towns and the many restaurants. There are many palces to visit within a short 30 minutes to 2 hour drive including beautifal waterfalls, rain forests, volcanoes, a microbrewery, many beaches, plus sailing and snorkling excursions.

We are two people with disabilities who stayed in this villa for 8 days and we had a wonderful time! The people, especially the manager, were incredibly kind and welcoming. The weather, the monkeys (!) and the pool were what we needed to get away from our busy lives. Many thanks to the owners for making this accessible villa available! The villa was clean and as depicted in the pictures provided. One challenge we came across in manual wheelchairs was rolling in the rocks that form the paths from the villa to the rancho or the parking. But the community is equipped with golf carts that our parents could borrow to transport us back and forth; and then they carried our wheelchairs separately. Also, the pool entrance was steeper than what we expected, so we had to adjust our techniques to go in and out. The internet was down during our stay. Eventually, arrangements were made for us to access the neighbour's internet, but it was only working on one of our devices. For future travelers with disabilities, we also found an accessible taxi that serves the Playas del Coco area. The van could fit both our manual wheelchairs folded in the back, but we had to transfer onto a regular seat in the van (which is much higher than a regular car). Also, we used the services of Avispas Adventures to visit nearby attractions and for transportation from the airport and to our next destination in Costa Rica. They are very committed to finding things to do and see for travellers with disabilities. All in all, I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to visit the area.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We first visited Costa Rica in 2006, taking a pontoon river tour from a Panama Canal cruise. We decided on Coco Beach because of its location on the Pacific and the very low, almost year round, LOW humidity. We wanted to rent a quiet, special place without 'apartment house feel' while still providing a pool and quick access to the beach and all activities Costa Rica is famous for. We also had to find a place that was somewhat handicap accessible, since Chris is wheelchair bound. The Green Mystery staff and villa owners were very accommodating and our first 10 day visit was magical. It helped us get serious about purchasing a villa as a retirement/vacation home! This is the closest villa to the parking lot and has a private view of the hill that separates the Green Mystery villas from Playas del Coco. We purchased villa 10 in November 2012 and spent three weeks in December converting the bathroom for handicap accessibility. We're years away from retirement, so help us enjoy this beautiful spot in the years to come!
Why the Owner Chose Playa del Coco:
We loved the unique community, great beaches and the low humidity weather. The people that own and visit Green Mystery share a love for nature, privacy and a love of animals. Close proximity to the Coco,Hermosa and other Coastal beaches, exceptional fresh seafood, excellent restaurants, entertainment, the Hidden Garden Art Gallery, musical entertainment and the medical facilities.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The large covered Rancho next to the pool, provides sunbathing, swimming, lounging and if wanted-group cooking with use of the pizza ovens, griddle and barbecue grills. The trip up the hill doesn’t require hiking equipment and has an incredible view of Coco Beach bay! If you like to cook, you can get fresh fish & shrimp from the fish man who delivers once a week, pick up fresh fruit and vegetables at the Ocotal road market and also get fresh bread and bakery treats weekly from the bread man. Make a special dinner for two in your full kitchen villa or join in with others for a group dinner at the Rancho! If you like to eat out, there are a multitude of great Coco/Hermosa restaurants! Walk along the beach and stop in for lunch and a brew. A number of local breakfast places from Costa Rican authentic to standard American fare. Dinner ranging from simple to fine dining. Avispas Adventures can provide information for any activity you would like to pursue. They can help you take off on your own or arrange for a guided tour!
