  • Snowbirds

    "A tranquil retreat away from the beach but with brilliant pool overlooking the sea. Sit & watch the sunset plus the stars in the evenings. Plenty of birds & monkeys to observe nearby during the day. Excellent support from the staff, Soyaya gave good advice, the cleaner Elena was thorough & discreet & the on site caretaker gave the pool daily attention & was very pleasant. We truly enjoyed our 3 weeks here."

  • Beyond SPECTACULAR!

    "I can honestly say that this home was the most SPECTACULAR home we have ever rented through VRBO. the pictures really do not show how truly amazing this property is! All four bedrooms are equally spectacular, balconies and hammocks with comfortable furniture to lounge in . The beds are comfortable and the open air with ceiling fans are all that is needed. You do not need air conditioning in this home. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean is incredible. I never wanted to get out of it! The sunken large kitchen is well appointed, and the outdoor living space is top notch, and also very comfortable. Marley and Rey the resident dogs are so sweet and are never a bother. The owner Daniel is present only to care for the dogs and keep his beautiful landscaping watered. It truly is paradise. The driveway is however very steep.....so be carefull if you've had a few too many cocktails in the pool! I do not recommend walking to the beach... Going down the drive is ok, it's the coming back up that is killer! We did have a very large beetle in our bathroom sink one morning....but with the openness of the house I expected a few critters, and we only had a few. I hope to return to villa montmeru at another time. It truly was a vacation I will always remember!"

  • The most peaceful place

    "I stayed at this lodge for a very short period, but I did not want to leave. It is the most peaceful place to stay at. Granted that I was there during the low season, but I also know that Mal Pais doesn't get flooded with tourists as other towns in the area, so it's pretty quiet with rock-free beaches. The lodge itself is very clean and the open concept is just a unique and beautiful feature of it, making it aesthetically very pleasing and enjoyable. It has all the necessary furniture, appliances (even a blender)...the owners are very friendly and warm people!"

  • Lovely vacation rental

    "We really enjoyed this rental, it was our first trip to Costa Rica on our first day, and it was a great introduction to the country. The trip there was eventful (i.e. rough...definitely rent an SUV) but the directions were very clear and Trey was waiting when we arrived. The home was clean and well maintained, and access to the pool was very convenient. The pool is shared with the home next door, and although it was occupied, we essentially had it to ourselves the entire stay. There was a great sunset view, and the monkeys and parakeets were a lovely addition. Also - an easy (quick) drive to beautiful beaches and delicious restaurants. We would definitely recommend this home."

Malpais Area Travel Tips

Beautiful Tranquil Mal Pais Beach Rentals

While Mal Pais is a smaller village of Costa Rica in Puntarenas Province, each year tourists find it is one of the best holiday destinations. A tranquil tiny village will welcome you to Mal Pais Beach rentals, which are spread over three kilometers of road. Your vacations in Costa Rica should include the Cabo Blanco Natura Reserve a few minutes north of Mal Pais resorts.

Mal Pais Resorts Help You Learn to Surf

The largest city near Mal Pais resorts is Santa Teresa, where nightlife, shops, and a hot surfing scene will welcome you. Mal Pais is noted as one of the top surfing destinations for vacations in Costa Rica but typically Santa Teresa offers the bigger surf scene. Waves can be a little inconsistent; however, the cove near Mal Pais Beach rentals helps create larger waves for the expert surfer.

Vacations in Costa Rica on Nicoya Peninsula

Characteristics of Mal Pais are historically significant because the rocky shoreline was formed by volcanoes in the past. Some of the most strange volcanic creations provide fascinating scenery around Mal Pais resorts. Much of Mal Pais has retained an unspoiled appearance with old forests running along the beaches. If you have time during your vacations in Costa Rica, you will want to take a cruise around Nicoya Peninsula just to see the beauty from another perspective.

Mal Pais Beach Rentals near an Aquatic Nursery

Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is a nursery for numerous aquatic species. From a boat tour, you can watch dolphins, manta rays and whales. On land at the reserve are canopy tours and horseback rides. These tours take you around the jungle, pointing out species of plants and animals that live in the forests. After a day of sightseeing, your Cabo Blanco Mal Pais Beach rentals will be waiting for you to relax in.
