About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Southern Costa Rica is a special place and San Vito is unique. The journey from San Jose is well worth it. Our house sits on 7 acres and has an unobstructed view of Volcan Baru in Panama. This is bird watching territory. Our house is tiled throughout and fully equipped for the visitor. We have a full time caretaker and an English speaking property manager to assist you in anything you may need. There is a grammar school nearby if you would like to observe or donate some school supplies. A short walk will take you to the famous Wilson Botanical Gardens.

The sun rises are so incredible that you will want to get up, grab your coffee (grown locally) and sit on the veranda each morning. A trip to Panama is a mere 30 minute drive.

If it is chilly at night, start a fire and enjoy the Spanish tiled fireplaces. Need TV, we have satellite SkyTV with many music channels as well.

Drive here, take a bus directly from San Jose into the center of San Vito or fly to Golfito or Coto 47 and cab it up to San Vito. Car rentals are available in Golfito.
