Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a very good place to stay to enjoy the great weather at Playa del Coco. The furniture outside is perfect to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine in the shade overlooking the pool. You have the end condo unit with no traffic. The pool is also a great place to sit around the bar and chat with you friends. It is very close to all bars and restaurants. The ocean is a quick walk straight down the road. Everything you need is in this condo. I would come back here again.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Agua del Lechuga. We had just enough room to do what we wanted. The property was clean. Had all supplies that we needed, although we could have used a sharper knife. The owner responded to our few complaints like the light out on range hood. The bed was comfortable. We liked being on the shady side of the building. The pool and pool area gets cleaned every morning. A few minutes walk to the beach and restaurants and bars. The dust from the road is annoying . The workers have to work harder to maintain the property. We will be coming back here.

A very good choice for sun lovers

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for the whole month of March. Perfect weather all the time, very friendly people all over. We walked to the beach almost everyday, 5 min. walk. eventhough the swimming pool is perfect. Most people there use the pool. 5 min. walk to the village to buy food and other things and also many excellent restaurants. We took many tours all very interesting and well organized. The condo was very confortable with air-conditionning. We ate there half of the time. All in all, a very good place to go for those who are looking for the sun and relax in the nice weather.

Explore the harmonic and organic way of living by spending your vacation in Playas del Coco!

This listing is about my beautiful home away in the pristine beaches of Playa del Coco, in the Papagayo Bay at the Pacific Coast, province of Guanacaste, a popular location with Canadian and the US tourists.

Only a 20 min. drive from Liberia International Airport brings you to condo complex called Agua de Lechuga located in 3-min. walk from Coco Beach. You are in a right place to drop your travel bags and to start enjoying your vacation immediately. Our luxury rental accommodation is one of the most accessible beach-property in the Northern Pacific, just 35 kilometers/22 miles from Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) in Liberia.

Costa Rica is more than a vacation destination; it is an interactive sensory experience. The country is has an intense array environmental attractions - majestic volcanoes, misty cloud forests, stunning river valleys, and hundreds of beaches along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. Costa Rica has a fascinating ecological story, woven into the history of a peaceful and family-oriented culture.
