Punta Uva, where the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge starts. The coast is composed of two bays, separated by Punta Uva point. You will find to the south the district of Arrecife, and to the north a large bay surrounded by jungle vegetation. This is one of the best spots within the region for snorkeling. Don't miss the river kayaking. A small road of about 6 km "Paraíso road", leaves from Punta Uva and crosses the hills to join the road leading to Bribri at the border with Panama.
About the owner: We came to Costa Rica in 2002 to realize a lifelong dream and today it is a pleasure and honor to be able to share it with you! We live on the property with our 2 daughters Maya-Soleil and Sara-Star, a short distance from Villa Toucan, but far enough to offer you complete privacy. We enjoy helping our guests with questions, tour bookings, activities, visits on the trails throughout the property and share our experiences about life in the jungle and Costa Rica! We also own and manage a local real estate and property management company.
Why the Owner Chose Punta Uva: Punta Uva is a living paradise on earth, with a vibrant and lush rain forest that reaches the gorgeous beaches below with white sands and live corals reefs. Here we have perhaps some of the best privacy and most exuberant wildlife in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Villa Toucan is slightly off the beaten path...and enjoys some of the most intense nature in Costa Rica with privacy, tranquility and security. Other than the caretaker / owners on site, there are no neighbors! It is the best of both worlds: close to the beaches but a complete immersion in the treasures and wildlife of the tropical primary rain forest! Oe of the only places in the Southern Caribbean where we guarantee you WILL see hundreds of Toucans ann see newly introduced Great Green Macaws.
