Casa Fuego sits on the best location in Playa Negra. Gazing over the beautiful infinity edge pool to the breaking waves at Playa Negra you will realize how good life is. The beach is located just beyond your gate so a day at the beach is just a few steps away. After a long day of relaxing, amazing sunsets will welcome you here every evening and will make your stay at Casa Fuego something you will never forget.

WHY PLAYA NEGRA? You're probably looking at multiple locations in Costa Rica. If a selection of uncrowded beaches, wild-life, a laid-back atmosphere, no high rise buildings, no franchises, multiple surfing breaks and tranquility are on your vacation agenda.

Why Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley chose Los Pargos

We fell in love with Playa Negra. It's a very special place!

What makes this house unique

We love our house and the location, we just walk to down to Sandy Beach and swim with the kids, when we're not using our pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We stayed at Casa Fuego the first week in March and enjoyed every minute of it! You were right, this house has such beautiful views of the ocean. We loved watching the sunset with cocktails in hand while soaking in the infinity pool. We spent a lot of time just relaxing at the house, in the pool and down at the beach. It's the perfect house to really relax and enjoy your vacation. Thank you for your help with our numerous questions and requests. You made the reservation, check in, and our entire stay very easy and pleasant. You were extremely helpful and always responsive. We can't wait to come back some day soon!

Overall BEST experience!

  • 5 of 5

The home owners were such a pleasure to work with and really provided the easiest and most enjoyable experience booking not only the house but also activities throughout our trip! They made planning our vacation fun and informative. They were able to set us up with private chefs for the house, massages to come to the house, and pretty much any outdoor activity you could think of. We will definitely be booking with them again in the future!!

Best Time ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Fuego. The house is much nicer than it looks in the pictures. Jarrod and Meaghan were super helpful and nice. I honestly think it was one of the best homes we have ever stayed in. It's right in front of the best surf break and not far from Playa Avellanas and the Lola restaurant if you need easier surf or a different beach. Make sure to eat at the local french restaurant and ask for Dean Jamon. He is super nice and can take you fishing. We highly recommend this house to anyone interested.

Pura Vida!

Simply the best location on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a longer term getaway from our nasty Canadian winter when we arrived at Casa Fuego for the month of January. We met our managers, Jarrod and Meaghan at the gates to the private area where the house is located and had the grand introductory tour to Casa Fuego. Our mouths dropped as we came up to the house and looked out across the infinity pool to the beach right outside our front yard. It is spectacular! We were travelling with our daughter and husband and our four grandchildren, ages 2-8, and when the kids saw their new playground for a month, they could not believe it. So we had the best time of our lives, playing in the waves on a spectacular beach. We loved the variety on the beach, with stretches of great sand and then areas of rock with tidal pools, snorkelling (saw leatherback turtles) and just walking for hours and beach combing. There are lots of places to go close by with the little town of Los Pargos at our doorstep, yet far enough away that we always felt we were in our own little place of paradise. A real big plus for us was the availability and attention we received from Jarrod and Meaghan whenever we needed something at the house or just wanted information about the local area. Their attention to us was prompt and courteous and we felt like part of the Playa Negra family in no time. The house itself suited our family perfectly. We slept in our own apartment over the detached garage with the kids having the house and everyone coming together for communal meals and lounging on the outside deck with superb views over the beach and spectacular sunsets. We are already booked for next winter. Can't wait. I highly recommend a trip to Costa Rica and you will fall in love with Casa Fuego and Jarrod and Meaghan. Mucho Gusto!

Casa Fuego in Playa Negra is the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Fuego in Playa Negra was the perfect getaway for our family (my husband and I, our two kids, and my parents). The house slept us all comfortably and we enjoyed beautiful views of Playas Sandy and Negra from the bottom and top floor balconies. The pool and pool area was perfect for hanging out, having a BBQ, swimming and enjoying the sun. We had our own private path to the beach where the whole family was able to surf any time of the day! Jarrod and Meaghan were super accommodating and available for anything we needed. What a relaxing, adventurous few days! Thank you!

Casa Fuego is the place! I have traveled all over central america and this was the easiest most stress free trip i have taken. Steps off the beach with one of the best point breaks in CR just down the beach!! what more can you ask for?! Jarrod, Meaghan and Mariah took great care of us and answered any and all questions that we had. They dialed us in! from the rental car to the zip line tours etc. I highly recommend PNVR and Casa Fuego! we will be back very soon!

Relaxation in Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa Fuego exceeded all expectations! The house is located on one of the most beautiful and peaceful stretches of beach in all of Costa Rica. You can enjoy spectacular sunsets, swim in the house pool, take beach walks and surf. It's all at your fingertips! On top of that, Meaghan and Jarrod are fabulous hosts-super accommodating, laid back locals who know how to make you feel at home! I highly recommend staying at Casa Fuego! You will not be disappointed!
