About Joe Garcia

We are Joe and Kay and have been married for 21 years. We enjoy all aspects of traveling to other countries. This includes learning about other cultures, viewing local wildlife and eating local foods.

Joe Garcia purchased this condo in 2010

Why Joe Garcia chose Guanacaste

We have traveled throughout the US, Europe, Canada, Central America and the Caribbean, but our favorite location is Costa Rica. Consequently, on our second trip to Costa Rica we decided to buy this condo. The condo has everything that we were looking for. It has a beautiful view of the mountains, fantastic swimming pools, and all the conveniences of home.

What makes this condo unique

We love the beautiful scenery and the wildlife viewing. The restaurants in Playa del Coco are also excellent. The seafood is fresh and very well prepared. Most of the restaurants are an easy 5-10 minute walk from the condo and the grocery store is just a 5 minute walk. The Beach Club is truly first class and very well maintained.

Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Had such an amazing time at this condo. Easy communication with both owner and rental management. Had issues every time I tried to enter the Pacifico gate, but the gate guards were able to fix it each time.

Condo is perfectly located, so that you can walk to store or in to Coco for shopping or eating. We kept to the local Sodas and loved everything we ate. The condo is very nicely decorated and steps away from the pool. The Pacifico grounds are well cared for and it's a gorgeous community.

We will for sure be back next year!!!

Great Place @ Pacifico!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location within the Pacifico complex, perfect location at El Coco.

Very clean, all equipped, ground level making it great when going with strollers, Joe was awesome and Yannick customer service was great.

Great place to stay, no question on that!

Nice Condo, good location, great experience overall.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo for 7 days, there were four of us including two children. Was perfect for our family. This is a nice condo in Pacifico, located less than 30 minutes from the LIR airport. The condo is clean and well maintained, and was equipped with everything we needed. The owners left a notebook with lots of good info on local restaurants and activities. Pacifico is a very nice gated community with security at the gate, we felt very safe, and had no issues with the condo or our rental car during our stay. The grounds and pools are well maintained. The included concierge service was also very helpful. There are a couple of grocery stores close by, as well as several good restaurants.

Cocoa beach is not the nicest beach around. The end closest to town is fairly dirty with lots of trash around and on the beach. However, the northern end is much nicer. If you plan to spend time at this beach, probably worth purchasing access to the beach club. However, this is still a great location, Pacifico is very nice, and there are several very nice beaches close by.

The only complaint that I have about this condo is that the wifi is horrible. I am still giving a 5 star rating because I think that given the location, we were probably lucky to have internet access. But, that is one thing that could possibly be improved. So, don't rent this condo expecting to have reasonable internet access, or you will be disappointed. But then again, what are you doing on the internet while at a place like this anyway :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I agree that the beach on the north end of Coco is a lot nicer. All Costa Rica beaches are open to the public. You don't have to join the Pacifico Beach Club to go to that Beach, but it does make a good staging area. Yes, Internet access is slow and very expensive. We pay for higher bandwidth but it is still slow compared to US rates. We are still able to check email and search for Costa Rica attractions.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this condo for a week and we are so happy we did. This was our first time traveling to Costa Rica and this trip did not disappoint. The condo has all the amenities of home. We chose to cook during our stay and we found all the pots and pans that we needed. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. (It’s always a hit or miss when traveling, so we were pleasantly surprised.) We also loved that the condo was right by one of the pools which was never busy. It was also very quiet at night and we couldn’t hear any of our neighbors. We were also very thankful the owner provides a laptop for guests to use during their stay. We aren’t night life people so we stayed in during the evening. It was nice to be able to watch Netflix on the laptop. We both felt very safe walking around after dark. We absolutely loved the location of the condo. The owner has a book of recommended restaurants which we tried most of them. We loved them all. We were shocked that we could go out to dinner and have a couple of drinks for under $45!!

We went zip lining at the rainforest which we highly recommend!! We drove ourselves which saved on the cost. The tour package wanted $190 per person, but if you drive yourself it’s only $50 per person. I would highly recommend renting a SUV if you do rent a car. There are a lot of dirt roads and potholes which would have damaged a standard rental car. We also booked a sunset cruise that leaves at the Coco beach. We highly recommend that tour as well. The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. It’s not a kid friendly tour. The kids that were on the cruise seemed rather bored. We also highly recommend checking out La Grande beach. It was breathtaking.

The only thing that was disappointing was the lack of response from the Guest & Concierge Services. They were extremely responsive when we first booked the condo but when it got closer to our trip, I found I had to email them multiple times to get a response. I also asked their help on booking a couple of tours for us, which they finally got back to us on our 2nd day there. At that point we had already figured out how to book the tours ourselves. This complaint is not a reflection of the owner. The owner responded quickly to all my questions and I wouldn’t hesitate to book through him again.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! We fell in love with Costa Rica.

Perfect location in a gorgeous condo complex!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 15 nights in this well-equipped, spacious condo in December 16/January 17. This 1st floor condo is located next to a common area which we used nearly every evening to play cards, and literally had it to ourselves. The King bed and two Twins (Which could be moved together to for a King) were comfortable. Two bathrooms were perfect for two couples sharing the unit, or a family. This unit has a view of one pool, but we never used it, as we preferred the other pools and hot tub which were just a short walk away. The pool lounge chairs were the most comfortable of any place we have been, with many trees for shade as well as umbrellas. We often ate, relaxed or played cards on the deck attached to the condo as well, depending on the time of day. The morning sun was often too hot to use it for coffee and breakfast. We used the Magic Jack on the provided laptop to phone home to Canada free of charge a couple of times, which was a nice feature! The appliances were modern, and the fridge had ice/water in the door. No need for bottled water in Costa Rice, as the water is excellent! Lots of TV Channels, in both Spanish and English, not that we watched much. There was no safe in the condo as we had thought there was, but one was provided when we requested it. The condo was clean, with lots of towels provided for bath and pool. The washer and drier were very convenient to have so we didn't need to bring many clothes. The kitchen was quite well equipped, but could use a set of bowls for mixing/serving. There are two excellent grocery stores within walking distance; one located just outside the security gates of the condo complex, and one across the street from that. We found everything we needed there, as well as Tico's Bakery, and fruit carts just down the street. We occasionally drove, but usually walked to one of many excellent restaurants in Coco when we chose not to cook in the condo. The grounds are beautiful, and well maintained. Before going on our trip, Joe answered any questions we had within a few hours. We would highly recommend this condo complex, and specifically this unit, as we felt it was one of the best located. No stairs, adjacent to the common area (of which only two buildings had this feature), close to the "lazy river" pools, but with a view of the other pool, and very quiet. It was paradise within the small, friendly town of Playa del Coco, which we much preferred to the busier surf town of Tamarindo.

Beautiful Unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit was everything the owner described it to be. Super Clean and a Super location! Pretty close to the main gate, therefore a quick walk to the grocery store. We did not rent a golf cart. I would recommend this to my family and friends. If I were to go back I would rent this unit again. Joe was very helpful and quick to respond with answers to any questions I had. A great person to rent from. Thanks Joe.
