"I had such a great time, I truly didn't wanted to come back. Of all the South/Central American countries I have visited Costa Rica is my favorite. The ocean is magnificent and the people so friendly. Surfing was a blast, every day great waves. We started using the two boards you left in the cottage to test the waters and then rented boards from "Agua Tibia" for a few days. Weather was great, only one day rained and we took it easy and waited for the rain to pass then back to the water. Love the location of your cottage and it has all what we needed to be comfy. Secluded yet within walking distance from everything. I made friends with the neighbors, the coconut lady, surf shop guys and the two guys who sell coffee cups at the beach. We went to the local supermarket (playa pelada) and bought our groceries there. People at the super were friendly and happy to see us and help us. I think we saved money by cooking at the cottage as the local restaurants are really expensive. I went to a coffee tour up in the mountains (Hojancha), totally worth the drive and got up at 5am every morning to watch the 12 or so monkeys travel to the tree behind your cottage. Check out went on without any issues, Virginie was helpful and friendly. I tried to avoid organico as his prices were stupid high ($6 for a quarter gallon of milk) and there are another 4 little markets like him around the area and charge a fraction of the price.
I will be back for sure."

Casa Verde Wonderful Home and outstanding Location
"The Nicoya peninsula of CR is a wonderful place to visit. Casa Verde is a charming home that has an outstanding view of the river inlet and beach. We had no problems with the home and found the open layout just perfect for our needs. The sights and sounds every morning and evening were amazing. Every morning and evening we were greeted by the howlers, their haunting calls rolling across the terrain. We spent time exploring the area, so when you arrive do not hesitate to go down all the roads that lead toward the surf or up the hills. The area is not at all touristy and the town of San Francisco was a sleepy little place with a Soda, a bakery, hardware store and small grocery. Also there is a turtle conservation group located there.
It is recommended that you have a 4x4 for travel, the roads are all dirt a little rough, however it is well worth the trip if you are looking to experience a taste of the beauty and charm of CR."

"My husband, son and I enjoyed many of the Costa Rican adventures on daytrips, but always anticipated a relaxing return to the condo -beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. We were pleased with the kitchen equipment, but were a little disappointed that simple items such as trash bags, dishwasher detergent, etc. were missing. The walk to and from the pool is a bit long but I just considered it a little workout. Others may want to drive. Again, the morning and evening views from the large balcony were well worth it! We would definitely return!"

"Words cannot describe our feelings of peacefulness in this place. Sitting in the hammocks at nite or early morning and the only thing you hear is nature...this place has all the modern conveniences c and food is just a car ride away. The beach is a whole other piece of luxury and nature and peace. Douglas is an absolute gem to have around too! DEF recommend and will be back!"
