  • Beautiful!

    "We stayed 3 nights in this condo with our 4 children. The condo was beautiful and spacious and Alex and Annie (the contacts there in MA) were so helpful. They set up tours for us and gave us great advice. The condo is in an ideal location. Right next to the park and walking distance to Playa Biesanz. We rented a kayak there one morning and went snorkeling (dry season). Lots of fish and we were the only ones there. Our last night at the condo we had howler monkeys in the tree right next to the balcony. Walking to the beach the next morning we saw squirrel monkeys and white-faced monkeys. We saw more monkeys around the condo then we did in MA! The condo also has access to the hotel pool which was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better place. I would highly recommend this condo!!"

  • Beautiful property - more spectacular than the pho

    "My family spent 5 glorious days in this villa. We loved every part of it - from the magnificent views to the wonderful décor. Everything in the house is of a very high quality and very comfortable. Even though there is another house very close by, the design of the villa is very clever and one feels private all the time. I enjoyed getting up early in the morning and watching the sun rise and the birdlife begin. Although we did not see monkeys we heard them! Its a steep drive up - so be sure to get a 4-wheel drive - but its pretty close to Uvita and a good supermarket. We enjoyed the dinner prepared by chef Gustavo - excellent food and service and actually contracted him for another evening. I can't recommend the house high enough! We felt well looked after and when the internet was problematic had numbers we could call to help us sort it out. I can't recommend the house highly enough!"

  • Two couples who love the beach, ocean and sun

    "We just returned from a 10 day stay at LaPaloma A-1 on Jaco beach. The condo was everything we'd hoped for and so much more. The two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, were perfect for our needs. We spent much of our time on the second floor terrace enjoying the view of the pool and beach and tropical breezes. The kitchen was well equipped, supplied with all the essentials, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, etc. The gated complex was neat, clean and very safe with guards at the front entrance at all times and a guard at the back gate throughout the night. The management company, Lost Beach, was helpful and provided all the information to make our stay enjoyable. Jaco has many restaurants, bars and shops that are close enough to walk or a short taxi ride away. We had a great time on the beach and in the ocean but also spent a lot of time at the pool right in front of the condo, most times we had the pool to ourselves. We've vacationed in several different location but I'd have to say Costa Rica is probably the most beautiful country we've seen. Manuel Antonio National Park is a must see excursion. We booked through Lost Beach and our guide Marco was the BEST. His guided tour from the time we settled into his van was informative and very interesting, showing us everything the park had to offer - monkeys, sloths, frogs, birds, and much MORE! It was a great vacation and we all agreed is someplace we'd vacation again and again."

  • A Month In Paradise!

    "We chose Casa Mono Titi for a month long stay and were not disappointed. Everything was great from the amenities of the house to the fabulous wide open view. The house is located 10+ mins south of Ojochal. There are 2 variety stores, a restaurant and an excellent meat market in Coronada where you turn off to take the 8 minute steep, scenic drive to the house. Our grocery shopping was mostly done at the BM supermarkets in Uvita about 20 mins north but discovered we could drive same distance south to the Palmar Norte BM supermarket; prices and selection were a bit better. I suggest buying duty free liquor/wine at the SJO airport as prices are cheaper. Most of our fruits and veg were bought at the Saturday market in Uvita or at roadside stands. The house has a charcoal BBQ with a neat gimmick to get the charcoal going. Try the smoked pork chops (chuletas de cerdo ahumadas) from the Carniceria (butcher shop in Coronada); their meat is excellent, their English is not! Restaurants we enjoyed were the Boca Coronada and the Tilapia Farm (2nd one) on the way to Ojochal as well as Exotica, Citrus, Mama y Papas, Ylang Ylang, all excellent choices in Ojochal. Fabrizio's has fabulous pizza and pasta (the gnocchi was delish)-small seating area but they offer take-out. If going to Dominical, try Por-Que-No restaurant then check out their small beach. Our days started at 5:30 to in order catch the best of the bird and wildlife action. The Mono Titi monkeys were frequent visitors in the large trees; watch for branch movement as they can be hard to spot. That's what we loved most about "living" here, every day provided a new amazing nature experience. Remember you are in the jungle so expect surprises! The Corcovada day trip was excellent; be sure to take backpack with water, snack, binoculars, camera and water shoes (not flip flops) as you get on/off the boat in the water. Expect 4 hours of hiking in the jungle; you will need closed walking shoes or, if has been very wet, boots would be best. The Osa Ziplining was OK (Arenal ziplining is better); not sure their rope bridge is safe! The house has well-stocked kitchen, A/C in bdrms, lots of dvds, books and bird guides, many comfy and shaded outdoor seating choices and a refreshing pool w outdoor shower. Denise, the property manager and David, our pool guy were wonderful. We learned so much from both of them, which made our stay here an experience we will never forget. Thank you Karen and Mario for sharing your lovely casa!"
