  • Breathtaking Uvita Views

    "The Casita was just what we'd hoped it would be. The mountain side view of the pacific was outstanding and the Uvita location was a perfect home base to visit many local beaches (Whale's tail), and for day trips south to the Sierpe (mangrove tour), north to Manuel Antonio National Park and north to Nauyaca Waterfall (horse back tour). Mix in relaxing with our morning cup of coffee on the deck watching the hummingbirds feeding while being serenaded by Toucan and Howler Monkey calls from the valley below was....well.....simply paradise. After a couple of days, Casita Kristina Maria truly felt like our home. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful property with us."

  • On top of the world!

    "We were there for a bachelor party and could NOT have picked a better place for our fun times! The driveway is pretty insane as it climbs straight up the mountain, but once you arrive at the home and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views, it's all worth it! We even saw monkeys climbing around in the trees around the house! Iguanas were everywhere on the pool deck every morning. We had breakfast made for us everyday where the staff went above and beyond! There were so accommodating to our every need, from taxis to food to helping us with activities to do. I suggest getting many meals there if you can... We would love to come back one day! Owner (located in the states) was very responsive via email and telephone, which was important to us as well."

  • Luxury overlooking the bay.

    "Yes - this place really does exist! The rental agent could have been a bit more prompt in returning e-mails, but her suggestions and help were spot-on. The owners rep, Peter, lives right across the road and was there with a big smile every morning after sunrise (which occurs over-looking the bay as you sit by the pool) and was full of information on where to go, what to do and who to see. It seems like he knows everyone and is always making sure that everything is right. There were 9 of us, spanning 3 generations, and we still had a bedroom left over. You do need a car, but it doesn't HAVE to be 4WD unless you're there in rainy season - it just needs to sit up higher than a car depending on where you're going. The roads are a joke, so speeding isn't something you have to worry about. Most of the roads are dirt and so poorly maintained that an old cow path might be easier to traverse, and the number of motorcycles and ATVs are about the same as cars/trucks, so be careful when moving to avoid a hole in the road as you don't want to hit a motorcyclist trying to pass you. I would highly recommend the Saturday morning market if you're looking for produce. We did the Zip line tours with Sun Trails, and they were great, as was Zuma Tours for snorkeling and Tortuga Island. Peter recommended some great restaurants, and some of the fun was just strolling around and eating at a place that just happened to be there when we got hungry. The locals are all very friendly and most speak some English. Everyone takes American $$. Make sure you take enough so you don't have to use the ATM. Half of our group has already had their bank accounts hacked after using the ATM in Playa Carmen. Can't say enough about the Villa. It was the PERFECT spot to spend the Christmas/New Year week."

Tambor Travel Tips

Tambor Beach Rentals on Whale Bay

Cliffs rising above the sea, which is ringed by sandy beaches and Tambor beach rentals, await you in Costa Rica. Tambor is nestled in Puntarenas Province on the Pacific Ocean on a horseshoe-shaped bay. The bay is named Bahia Ballena or Whale Bay because the whales used to visit during the drier seasons. Unfortunately, the whales hardly ever come into the bay, so your vacations in Costa Rica might require a boat trip if you want to see these magnificent creatures. The area is filled with Tambor resorts to welcome guests onto the Nicoya Peninsula.

Tambor Resorts in a Biological Reserve

The Nicoya Peninsula is considered the biological corridor of Costa Rica due to the ecological biodiversity found around Tambor resorts. On the northern side of the bay, a few minutes from Tambor beach rentals, is the Curu Wildlife Reserve. The reserve protects the wildlife of Costa Rica such as the various species of birds, reptiles, and sea turtles. Your vacations in Costa Rica can be spent roaming the Islas Tortugas, a paradise reached by boat from Tambor. It is one of the only tropical islands of the area not overly crowded by tourists.

Vacations in Costa Rica with Palm Tree Lanes

A few of the Tambor resorts are right on the beach, so you will not require a car. However, you may want a car to explore other beaches and nature reserves. The sand on the Tambor Beach is gray due to a high volcanic activity in the past. The beach of Tambor is lined with almendro and palm trees. Vacations in Costa Rica can be filled with volleyball, soccer, surfing, or water sports all available along the beach.

Tambor Beach Rentals Offer Hidden Pools for Swimming

If you are on a romantic holiday, take the time for beach walks from Tambor beach rentals. From the pier on the southern tip of Tambor, you can walk along the beach and up rocky paths to Cocalitos Beach. As you continue your walk, you will find El Chorro waterfall which empties into the ocean. In this area, there is a rocky pool filled with warm clear water for bathing in.
