  • 8 river brats arrive at casa del mar

    "There was only 8 of us on this trip, me the one who believes if it sounds to good to be true, well it is, but i sent a check, and then another, and I had Gabriela reserve me 2 cars at 'U Save Liberia' car agency. Address to house, Casa Del mar, longitude by latitude. Well some body picked us up at the airport, good thing because 20 other guys offered, took us to rental agency, got an old beater van that held 8, awesome, and away we traveled, with some other directions from Greg and Gabriella that were absolutely perfect, thank you, my kind of directions, for a man without a smart phone. We found the home at night, no problem, Nicho and Merriam were waiting for us. The home is absolutely perfect, even though your never in the home but to sleep, the outdoor patio and the beach is where we hang. From my master bed I only have to lift my head up to see 8 lounge chairs set up under " THE 4 COCOA PALMS AND 2 ALMOND TREES" heaven, everyday. I'm really hard to please, the first day I was not so sure if this is good enough, as the week went on it became the most amazing adventure, everything about this house, the host Greg and Gabriela, the care takers, Nicho and Merriam, location very perfect not touristy, this is July and we are ready to go back for Christmas. As other reviews wrote, you really can spend your whole vacation right at the house on the beach, it is playa grande 'big beach' and big, beautiful, and all yours besides a few tourist and a few locals. A short drive to Tamarindo can't hurt, fun drive very busy , bicycles, horses, cows,and alot of walkers, very rurual, And if you do a sunset cruise choose the pirate ship, Antares, so non commercial, thank you Daniella, it felt like our own personal sail boat, that will be a great memory. So we thank all of you at Casa Del Mar for a very unforgettable trip, and we hope we were'nt to much problem, and hope u will except us back. PS the next day U SAVE LIBERIA brought us a brand new van, How did they know where we live? Longitude- latitude We are the River Brats life is good"

  • First Time/Forever Fans

    "This was our first time in Costa Rica. We enjoyed every minute of our relaxing vacation and found it hard to leave. The home was inviting and staff from the surf shop were so friendly and very helpful. Marcos was so friendly and asked us everyday what we were going to do and gave us suggestions that made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you Marcos! The home is very comfortable and has everything we needed. The porch provided many star gazing opportunities and a wonderful breakfast setting. The shooting stars, howling monkeys, local bird species singing and a cool breeze made it so relaxing. When the wind died down we could hear the ocean. The thing we embraced was the Pure Vida life. Walking the beach every day at least twice and exploring the surrounding area was fantastic. We ventured to many beaches and thoroughly enjoyed having our own vehicle. The roads were good (sometimes adventurous) and we found that people drove carefully, unlike our Dominican Republic experience. The local restaurants each had their own unique style but all of them had wonderful wait staff and very good food. Huerto's Pizza is exceptional and Eric at Rip Jack Inn restaurant was one of our favorite waiters. The food is always amazing. Try the hot garlic shrimp. We wish we didn't wait for the last night to try it. Take time to talk to people and you will find them to be a likable and inviting community. Ian, Corryne and their boy Finnegan were all so charming and easy going. We thank you so much for providing a home in the middle of paradise. We enjoyed it and needed the time a way. We look forward to making Costa Rica our future vacation destination for years to come. We want to share it with everyone. God bless you all at Frijoles Loco!"

  • Perfect Hideaway

    "Thank you George & Susan for allowing us to stay in your home. We had a wonderful holiday. Your home was perfect for us (2 adults, 2 teenagers); the house had everything we needed and the pool and boogie boards/soft top surf board were lovely added touches. The house and yard were very well maintained and it was much appreciated. Alyssa was an unobtrusive yet very helpful property manager. We would love to come back some day! Playa Grande and Palm Beach Estates are the perfect location for surf lovers who also like a bit of peace and quiet away from the crowds."

  • Playa Grande - Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    "This is a great hideaway in Playa Grande. It is a relaxing 2 bedroom home with everything you need. It's a short walk to the beach and has a beautiful inviting swimming pool surrounded by green, lush vegetation. I highly recommend it."

Playa Grande Travel Tips

Playa Grande Beach Rentals Are Tropical Paradises

Do more than dream about the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. Instead, book your perfect Playa Grande Beach rentals now to experience the Guanacaste Province and Marino Las Baulas National Park. Every day, you can rise and run down to the pristine shoreline around Playa Grande resorts for a dip in the clear Pacific Ocean. At dusk, set up dinner on the deck, so that you can enjoy the sunset. Vacations in Costa Rica are your dream come true.

Playa Grande Resorts and the Life of the Sea Turtle

Playa Grande resorts and Guanacaste Province are most notable for the endangered leatherback sea turtles that visit each year. These turtles struggle up the sand from the ocean to lay their eggs. Vacations in Costa Rica cannot be complete without a look at the natural park where the turtles are protected. If you cannot make the nesting season, try to come 55 to 75 days after the nesting occurs. During this time, you can walk from Playa Grande Beach rentals to witness the baby turtles emerging from the sand to crawl into the sea.

Surf Vacations in Costa Rica

Vacations in Costa Rica to Playa Grande are also notable for their surfing. The main beach at Playa Grande will see waves of varying heights for all skill levels of surfers. This beach is a lot quieter than Playa Tamarindo though equally as good. You will have to be an early riser most mornings to leave Playa Grande resorts for the ocean waves beckoning you.

Enjoy Tours near Playa Grande Beach Rentals

Vacations to Playa Grande Beach rentals do not have to be all about the beach. You can travel inland to experience eco-tours above the ground. Witness the waterfalls that allow the river to snake its way out to the ocean on a trekking tour of the rainforest.
