  • 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!"

  • Family from New York

    "Just INCREDIBLE! We felt as though we were one with nature. Our 2 young boys had the time of their life. We, as family, bonded and left with such life experiences! We can't wait to go back."

  • Doesn't get any better...

    "First rate all the way around. I highly recommend this dream home to anyone looking for the best possible Costa Rica vacation experience. The home is incredibly beautiful and crafted with such taste and care in the highest quality manner. Open air tropical breeze gently moves through the home and the superb hand crafted comfortble furniture throughout the home makes for a very relaxing and beautiful environment. In my opinion it doesn't get any better than this. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Alex the owner couldn't be more warm, welcoming and helpful. All our needs were met and then some. Not to mention this gorgeous home sits on one of the most pristine pieces of land just steps from the sand of your own private cove. This place is the real deal tropical paradise dream home. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the incredible gereously sized patio that looks out onto and maximizes the breath taking views of the river, natural reserve, countless exotic trees, and the gorgeous beach and Pacific Ocean right in front of you. From the comfort of our beds, the living room, kitchen and patio we saw the best of what Costa Rica offers... Wildlife (horses, monkeys, birds, iguanas, etc) world class sunsets and we woke up and went to sleep to the sound of the waves gently crashing on the shore. The house is also conveniently located just a short walk to Mary's organic farm to table restaurant (our favorite in the area). I hope you your friends and your family get to enjoy this experience as much as we did. Pura Vida."

  • Pura Vida

    "This casa exudes the Costa Rican life style, frequently referred to as Pura Vida. Sitting in the title pools (when safe) with your favorite bevarage removes any stress that one may have brought down with them. It is close enough to Montezuma but far enough away that one can engage in the life there or escape into your own private garden. The casa is artistic with beautiful wood work and tile. The hammock on the front porch will afford you as many hours of peace and calm you may need. We loved this place and would recommend it only to people seeking Pura Vida."

Punta Banco Travel Tips

Punta Banco Vacation Rentals: The Perfect Costa Rica Lodging

When planning a vacation to Costa Rica, look to Punta Banco vacation rentals to make your trip a memorable one. Ocean-front villas boast room for families of up to 14 people, but without feeling crowded. Laze the day away in a hammock on a sun-drenched balcony or enjoy the private beach that is exclusive to your Puntarenas beach home.

Punta Banco Vacation Rentals Feature Costa Rica's Beauty

Punta Banco lies on the southeastern coast of Costa Rica. Misty mornings give way to brilliant afternoons with the sun basking swaying palms and lush rainforest in its balmy glow. Local roads winding through mountain forests, where squirrel monkeys and parrots abound, allow for glorious sight-seeing that guarantees your Punta Banco travel experience will be one you'll never forget.

Rentals Surrounded by Nature's Majesty

Just to the northeast of your Puntarenas beach home lies Chirripo National Park. This park is one of the most untouched parks with its forest having been protected from development. Miles of hiking trails wind through several ecological zones ranging from pastures and grasslands to woodland forests. A challenging climb to the summit of Cerro Chirripo, the park's highest peak, yields coinciding views of the Caribbean and Pacific Ocean on a clear day.

Head southeast from your Punta Banco vacation rental to Parque Nacional Corcovado to experience a day in "the most biologically intense place on earth," according to National Geographic. Home to several endangered species such as the harpy eagle, red-eyed tree frog, tapir and giant anteater, this park is known for its abundance of scarlet macaws. It's best to take a guided hiking tour for a more exciting adventure; guides can be found in nearby Puerto Jiminez and Drake Bay. At the climax of an amazing day, returning to your Punta Banco vacation rental feels just like going home.
