SAME HOUSE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT, now with more services, from Jarrod and Meghan. Just 200 meters walk to the snorkeling beach and 8-10 minutes walk to more beautiful PACIFIC BEACHES; relax in Mango Tango's unique riverfront retreat. From the main tree-top level gaze at animals enjoying the pristine riverfront. Enjoy Costa Rican coffee on the romantic master bedroom balcony over-looking the river; you will likely be joined by a monkey, parakeets, Iguana, red-tailed squirrels and Mapaches also enjoying breakfast. Dine, read or enjoy yoga on the outdoor covered patio surrounded by gardens. Walk a short distance in our gated community to Playa Negra, Sandy Beach, Playa Blanca and more for surfing, beach combing, dining, sunset drinks, and rejuvenating ocean views.
WHY IS PLAYA NEGRA AWESOME? You're probably looking at multiple locations in Costa Rica. If a selection of uncrowded beaches, wild-life, a laid-back 'time does not matter' atmosphere, no high rise buildings, no franchises, multiple surfing breaks and tranquility are on your vacation agenda; Playa Negra beach town is your place to kick back and smell the sea! In Playa Negra you can capture the way Costa Rica used to be! If you need a dose of a touristy town, its only half an hour drive to Tamarindo for shopping, Subway, our favorite huge US style grocery store the 'AutoMercado' and shop after shop of souvenirs. You can also go 40 minutes inland to visit Santa Cruz for a taste of an authentic Costa Rica mini city.
