About the Property
sleeps 2 - 5, 1&1/2 bathrooms, full kitchen, A.C, Balcony + 1 studio bungalow
Slice of Paradise is located on one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in Costa Rica. There is an abundance of wildlife here including , monkeys that visit us daily, sloths, toucans, parrots, iguanas, and endless species of tropical birds for bird-watching.
Our lush tropical gardens are a beauty to behold and we have several tropical fruit trees as well. We have an amazing selection of orchids, pink and red ginger and birds of paradise to name just a few. If you would like to see Mother Nature at her finest Slice of Paradise is the place for you, it will be like having a private beach completely to yourself, you can beach walk for miles on this velvety sand beach and will never step on a rock and will see just a few locals fishing by only using a hand line. When you go for a long beach walk you never have to worry about finding your way back because you can simply follow your own foot steps in the sand that will lead you back to Slice Of Paradise.
Being located only 25km south of Manuel Antonio National Park and 13km north of Dominical, Slice of Paradise is centrally located to all the best things Costa Rica has to offer. You could never stay at Slice Of Paradise and have enough days to do the things you would like to do or see here, there is just to much beauty to take in here on Playa Matapalo and the surrounding area. Be sure to catch the sunsets every evening on the beach, everyone on this small beach always congregates on the beach in the evening to watch the beautiful sunsets that we get every day. They're a thing of beauty and don't forget to take your camera with you
