About the owner: Our family fell in love with Playa Junquillal the first time we visted and we have been part of the community ever since.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Junquillal: Playa Junquillal is a wonderful place to get away from it all. This tranquil setting has a 180 view of the ocean. We love the peaceful sunrises and sunsets from the balconies, the amazing number of stars at night and the sights and sounds of the ocean. The sounds of nature are all around - the parrots chasing each other across the lawn, the howler monkeys in the trees and the large zappos (frogs).
