Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Out of all the places on earth that we have been to what completes us is our home in Matapalo. We love surfing, yoga, peace, serenity, being off the grid, good organic foods, see wildlife and plants daily, being the only person frolicking on the beach, hiking and swimming at incredible waterfalls and in the primary forest, locals night at Martinas, hanging at the 'Monkey bar' sipping on some cocktails at En Canta La Vida, and having each day for us, our children and friends to experience something new every time you turn around.
Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
We went to Costa Rica and after years of a dear friend of ours telling us about how magical the Osa Peninsula and Matapalo was finally we decided to go. We had over two weeks and wanted to see all of Costa Rica. So, we landed in San Jose rented a car and off we went! We first drove to Jaco and spent the night in Playa Hermosa, then made our way down to Quepos spent a few night s there and off we went to Matapalo. WOW! The drive in was magical and it felt like home when we drove in on this dirt road, through the jungle as monkey's swung by and then to the house we were planning on staying at for 3-4 nights before heading off to the Carribean side and then North. Well, let's just say...we never left. The wildlife, the people, the seclusion of being off the grid, THE SURF, walking on a beach and being the only ones, Friday night at Martina's and the magic Matapalo instills into your soul and your being. All the stress rolls off your back and all you feel is happiness and one with the earth, ocean, local people and the wildlife! This is how life should be lived and enjoyed.
