  • Happy traveler

    "Came down to the Osa Peninsula to seek adventure and surfing; we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful location; beach just steps from the front deck. Very clean. The staff was very helpful, and hospitable. Host provided great suggestions on things to see and do in the area. We had a personal cook come in and prepare meals for us that were very good. Great place to come if you like being close to nature but desire comfortable accommodations. If you like being around large crowds, this is NOT the place for you. Very serene, surrounded by beautiful lush vegetation and wildlife, bordering one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen with great surf."

  • Awesome home on Matapalo Beach

    "The home was lovely and very well appointed. The caretaker and cook were fabulous and did everything they could do to make our trip enjoyable. The location was perfect and the grounds and garden were beautiful. The kids loved the triple bunk and the master upstairs was perfect. We will surely go back and stay again!"

  • Casa Arenosa, amazing tropical escape

    "We stayed at Casa Arenosa in April and had an amazing time! The house is so beautiful. We enjoyed the large open kitchen for cooking meals, making smoothies and hanging out in. There are so many seating areas throughout the house, including hammocks, so it’s easy to find a place to relax or socialize. There is also a plunge pool, which was perfect for cooling off during the heat. The beach is just a few steps from the house through some almond tress. The water was beautiful and we saw so many scarlet macaws in the trees! It was great to come out and watch the sunrise at the beach as well. Mornings were also good for seeing all the wildlife that’s around. There were toucans, and tons of monkeys in the trees just outside the house! The caretaker Mike is great. He even made us a delicious dinner one night with fresh fish he had caught himself that day. The sheets and towels were changed every few days, which was very nice as well. The place is perfect for anyone looking for an incredible tropical escape, whether it’s just a couple or a large group of friends. I would highly recommend it to anyone."

Cabo Matapalo Travel Tips

Cabo Matapalo Beach Rentals in Puntarenas Province

Cabo Matapalo in Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica is one of the smallest, most remote villages of the Central American country. The province sits on the Osa Peninsula in the southernmost section of Costa Rica. Its location makes it easy to book Cabo Matapalo beach rentals, even for a last-minute vacation. Imagine verdant forests with red, sandy beaches and blue seas as part of vacations in Costa Rica. Staying at Cabo Matapalo resorts is the quintessential holiday with surfing, diving and much more.

Big Waves near Cabo Matapalo Resorts

Surfing near Cabo Matapalo resorts is inconsistent due to the size of the waves that roll in. Some days you can have the perfect wave while the next day you have baby waves, but this is what makes Cabo Matapalo great for the entire family. Smaller children still get a chance to play in the waves on vacations in Costa Rica, while bigger kids get the ideal swells. Fishing off the beach is possible; however, for the ultimate experience, consider a deep sea fishing tour. You can surf one day and spend the next out on a boat looking back at the beach and your Cabo Matapalo beach rentals.

Walking to King Louie Waterfall on Your Vacations in Costa Rica

Vacations in Costa Rica to Puntarenas Province will most definitely need to include King Louie Waterfall. It is possible to hike from many of the Cabo Matapalo resorts to the waterfall. This waterfall has a small amount of water running down cliffs green from algae. You will be in the heart of the tropical rain forest on your excursion to the waterfall, so remember to look for Howler monkeys and other wildlife.

Cabo Matapalo Beach Rentals Allow You to Cook

Many accommodations in Costa Rica offer "lanai" decks for you to watch the sunsets and eat home-cooked meals. Every morning, you can leave Cabo Matapalo beach rentals to go fishing for your lunch and dinner. You may also want to check out the local fresh food market for fruits, vegetables, and herbs to use in your kitchen.
