"We had a wonderful experience at this beautiful home in Cabuya, Costa Rica. We stayed for five weeks with a family of six, including four young children. The home is exquisite and well-appointed. We found we had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable and the outdoor space is divine. Some days we just hung around the house, enjoying the pool and the fantastic hammocks. It's true, there is no air conditioning, but we found ourselves accustomed to the heat fairly quickly. The (very clean) pool is fantastic, by the way! The owner and the caretaker, Rosa, are wonderful people. We found them to be helpful and kind every step of the way, including when we needed to leave quickly due to a family emergency. We loved the location of this home. Cabuya is quaint with beautiful shorelines and the people are so friendly. I couldn't recommend the home more!!
In terms of Cabuya, it can be helpful to know a few things. First, a car or ATV is necessary to fully enjoy the area unless you are comfortable walking long distances. There is a public bus, but it is somewhat unreliable. Visit Jenny at the Cafe Coyote is a must. Try the coffee at the Cabuya Bakery and the family-style meals at Delphin De La Luna. We found that we didn't swim at Playa Cabuya, due to the rocks, but there are numerous beautiful beaches very close by. Check out Playa Montezuma, Playa Grande, Mar Azul, Playa Carmen and Playa Hermosa."

"We stayed in Shana residence for several days. We are family of 5 including 16 yo and 10 yo girls.
Place is in convenient location, close to Manuel Antonio national park and beach.
Alex was very helpful and friendly, and gave us a lot of useful information about the area.
Our flight was late at night, and he kindly agreed for us to stay a little later so we would not have to spend half of a day at the airport. We had great time, and would recommend the place to our friends."

"We recently stayed at Casa Celestial during Holy Week 2015. We are a family of 5 with girls 5 y.o., 8 y,o., 10 y.o. and met our friends who brought their 5 y.o. son. The Casa is a special place and the views really are that magnificent. We spent our evenings in the pool swimming and watching the sunset and our mornings having breakfast in the Palapa taking in the view. The house is very comfortable, and with the 8 of us there still felt like there was plenty of room to spare. This is a gated community and felt very safe - which is worth mentioning for people who are bringing their families. The drive from the gate is very steep -- if you are renting a car - make sure you get something with enough "guts" to get up the incline. We grilled fresh fish from the local fish co-op in Tarcoles almost daily. There is a great farmer's market in Jaco once a week on Friday. We had private surf lessons with "The Surfing Factory" in Jaco. These guys were great, and I specifically recommend Luis, who was great with the kids. An incredible week , we already started planning our return visit for next year."

"We had such a wonderful time in Santa Teresa. As a town, its magical! Beautiful people, great food, amazing nature, awesome surf and epic yoga! it is so hard to leave! Villa Bonita was an amazing place to stay, as its right in the heart of town, but remote in the sense that when you're home you have total privacy. The pool is beautiful, has A/C, is a 1 minute walk to the beach, super clean and well stalked kitchen. There is housekeeping, laundry and if in case anything goes wrong, a maintenance person dedicated to making sure it gets fixed! There is also an outdoor shower that really came in handy! It's a perfect place for families or couples, of all ages! Mali and her family were incredible hosts! We can't wait to go back!"
