About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 9, including Jungle Escape Suite)

WELCOME TO CASA INFINITO.
Nestled on a secluded jungle ridge with a panoramic view of Jacó's popular Hermosa Beach, Casa Infinito is an unforgettable vacation retreat for couples, families, and adult groups with an appreciation for natural splendor and upscale comfort. The stunning 3-level, 5-bedroom home, designed by award-winning architect Andrés Serpa, is set in the folds of Costa Rica’s Valle Perdido (Lost Valley), offering a unique combination of ocean and mountain vistas from floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple open-air terraces.

INFINITY POOL. PRIMARY RAINFOREST.
Casa Infinito takes its name from a crystal clear, sun-warmed, 40-foot infinity pool that runs along the front of the house, overlooking the primary rainforest at Valle Perdido. The valley is a natural habitat for white-faced capuchin monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, iguanas, and other wildlife. (The monkeys, in particular, are frequent visitors to Casa Infinito, so don’t be alarmed if they tap on your bedroom window to wake you up!)


MINUTES AWAY. A WORLD APART.
Only five minutes by car from world-class surfing at Playa Hermosa and less than 15 minutes from downtown Jacó, Casa Infinito brings you back to nature without sacrificing easy access to important services and local attractions. The house is 25 minutes from Carara National Park, a 12,800-acre conservation area that is home to almost half of Costa Rica's native bird species, and an hour from the much smaller but still spectacular Manuel Antonio National Park. From hiking and horseback riding to swimming and sunset dining, the diversity of activities along Costa Rica's Central Pacific coast explains why this area consistently ranks as a "Travellers' Choice" top destination.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW. FOR EVERYONE.
Casa Infinito features 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths (2 with double sinks). The main house sleeps 7, while the Jungle Escape Suite, an independent unit with more intimate views of the jungle, sleeps another 2. (See below for a full description of bedrooms, baths, and other amenities.) Unlike beach-side accommodations, which can be plagued by mosquitoes and no-see-ums in the late afternoon and evening, Valle Perdido benefits from a soft mountain breeze that makes for enjoyable outdoor living day and night. In addition, the house is equipped with an advanced climate control system for your comfort.

GOURMET KITCHEN. MOVIES. STARGAZING. AND MORE...
Whether you want to cook up a storm in our gourmet kitchen, relax in a hammock while reading a book, hunker down with a movie from our media library, or retire to the upper terrace to do a little yoga or stargazing while listening to the ebb and flow of the Pacific surf, Casa Infinito is your home away from home. We encourage you to review the comments of past guests to get a better sense of what makes Casa Infinito so special. Many people visit Jacó each year, but only a few experience the majesty of Valle Perdido – and among those who do, the most spectacular sights and sounds are reserved for guests at Casa Infinito.

ONE TEAM. AT YOUR SERVICE.
Special care has gone into building long-standing, trusted partnerships with our local representatives who will greet you, take you to the house, and ensure all of your needs are met during your stay. Jacó is Costa Rica’s closest coastal location from San José’s primary airport, Juan Santamaría International (SJO), meaning you can enjoy more vacation time in every visit.

EXCLUSIVELY FOR YOU.
To protect the natural beauty and serenity of Valle Perdido, and for the security and comfort of our guests and neighbors, only registered guests are allowed at the property. This policy is strictly enforced by 24-hour security.

Owner info

About the owner: We fell in love with Costa Rica’s Valle Perdido (Lost Valley) on our first visit – and we have a hunch you will, too! As busy professionals, we were looking for a secluded, upscale vacation retreat that would bring us closer to nature without sacrificing easy access to important services and amenities. Casa Infinito is that place. Nestled in a lush crest of Valle Perdido, Casa Infinito is one of only a small number of vacation homes in the greater Jacó area to combine stunning mountain and ocean vistas with the security of a small, private community that borders a natural wildlife corridor. We invite you to browse through our photos and read the comments of past guests to get a better sense of what makes Casa Infinito so special. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we'd love to hear from you! Victoria and Emilio :)

Why the Owner Chose Hermosa Hills (Puntarenas, Costa Rica):
We were attracted to this property for a number of reasons. First, because Jacó is Costa Rica’s closest coastal location from San José’s primary airport, Juan Santamaría International (SJO). The drive to Casa Infinito is fast and easy on a brand new highway, which means more vacation time in every visit. Second, Valle Perdido is a treasure: close to everything and yet a world apart. From the house, it is only 5 minutes by car to world-class surfing at Playa Hermosa and less than 15 minutes to downtown Jacó. Unlike beach-level properties, the soft mountain breeze at Valle Perdido keeps the mosquitoes and no-see-ums away, making for more enjoyable outdoor living day and night. Plus, Valle Perdido is tranquil (unlike some over-developed parts of Guanacaste and the area around Manuel Antonio National Park). Last but not least, Casa Infinito is reachable by a single access road that is monitored by 24-hour security, ensuring it is both quiet and safe.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Infinito takes its name from a crystal clear, sun-warmed, 40-foot infinity pool that runs along the front of the house, overlooking the primary rainforest at Valle Perdido. The infinity pool is large enough to do laps, but also features in-pool seating for those who prefer to simply relax and take in the mountain and ocean views. If you're up for a challenge, lace up your runners and head out for an early morning hike or jog along the winding access road that connects the Valle Perdido community. The circuit is about 3 kilometers and the hills are steep, but you're sure to get encouragement as you pass the Valle Perdido guardhouse, and you're likely to see monkeys, iguanas, toucans and any number of other creatures along the way!
