  • Costa Rican Getaway

    "I had the best stay at this house. Alex was so warm, friendly and super attentive. It was my first time in Costa Rica and the house and Alex made it a wonderful trip. The house is so breathtaking with its beachfront backyard views and beautiful layout of the house. I went with my 2 siblings and 2 friends. So its comfortably fit 5, but Alex has more beds if necessary. Super clean and extra plus for having a maid upkeep the property and help with the laundry. Not to mention their family owned restaurant Mary's Restaurant is located 2 minutes walking distance, which is also a must see. We all enjoyed our time there and I highly recommended booking this house. Pura Vida."

  • Paradise Found

    "We stayed at Casa Teka for 5 days and we had a truly amazing experience. This beautiful home is close enough to town, but far away from the traffic. The only sounds you can hear is the ocean waves crashing on a tranquil beach only steps away and the monkeys and exotic birds playing in the mango trees throughout the lush green garden setting surrounding the property. The large open outdoor deck lets you be one with nature as you sit within the tree canopy. The local market one block away has all the food essentials and supplies that you would need and Mary's restaurant (walking distance) is a great place to treat yourself to dinner. I would recommend Casa Teka for a family vacation, romantic getaway, surf/fishing trip, or anyone who wants to have an authentic Costa Rican experience. The manager Pia took great care of us and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Pura vida."

  • Beautiful Home in best area of Costa Rica

    "My husband and I have traveled to Costa Rica many times over the years as it is one of our favorite destinations. We have also traveled all over Costa Rica, concentrating on beach towns and Mal Pais is our favorite. What made this last trip so memorable was the beautiful home that we stayed at during our stay. Casa El Mirador is beautiful inside and very well constructed with attention to detail apparent through out. We traveled this time with friends of ours who have 4 adult children and it was perfect. My husband and I stayed in the suite below while the family was upstairs. This beautiful little suite gave us privacy while still be together with the family. We loved the little rooftop for afternoon relaxing after a day of surfing. The location was also great, just a walk across the street to the best surfing beach for beginners and seasoned surfers, make sure you stay for the sunsets, stunning! The town is charming, with places to stop for ice cream and groceries as well as a sweet bakery to go to each morning for delicious coffee and baked goods. We like to travel to new places but Costa Rica continues to have a special place in our hearts and this home will be the place we come back to. I also believe they have a couple of smaller homes on the property that looked really cute for couples."

  • Already planning our trip back!

    "We traveled to 4 other places in Costa Rica but this was our favorite by far. We got a little lost on the way and our car wasn't the best for travel on dirt roads down the Nicoya peninsula but when we finally arrived we were very pleased. Manzanillo is a wonderful, serene beach town (if you could even call it that, only one corner restaurant/convenience store) and Trey's property is situated on a hill above, with great views of the sunset, monkeys and lizards frequenting the area, a very short ride or walk to the beach. We rented an ATV to get to and from the surrounding towns and beaches. Overall a great time. Can't wait to visit again!"

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.
