About Portasol Living

We manage the different and beautiful vacation rentals within Portasol Community.

Portasol Living is a gated community located on a private rainforest reserve in the Pacific coastal mountains of Costa Rica, between Manuel Antonio National Park and Ballena National Marine Park. Enjoy the best of Costa Rica in one place – pure rainforest, waterfalls & natural pools, abundant wildlife, and all minutes from beautiful uncrowded tropical beaches. We are award-winning for our environmental and social commitments. Come for a week or stay forever!

Why Portasol Living chose Savegre

This place is so special because it is located in the coastal rainforest between the Central Pacific and Southern Pacific regions of Costa Rica.

Just off the Costanera Highway (CR-34), minutes from beautiful tropical beaches and close to the famous Manuel Antonio National Park and the Ballena Marine National Park.

What makes this house unique

It is a very pleasant house, with all the necessities of the modern live, but away from it, nested in the magical tropical forest. It has 3 bedrooms (All of them with Air Conditioning) with ceiling fans, satellite tv, an infinity pool surrounded by an amazing rainforest.

The house is only 5 minutes walking distance from the Portasol Living famous park, La Cazuela, awesome waterfall ending on crystal clear river pools where you can actually swim and jump off.

There are many activities in the area: zip linning in Quepos, Rafting class 3 on the Savegre River, Surf Lessons in Dominical, Stand Up Paddle baord in the mangrove, ATV tours, waterfalls or just take a volleyball ball and go enjoy the beach. We are sure you will not get bored

Guestbook comments from the manager

The property manager, Alex, met us at the airport and took us to the home, carried our luggage in and made sure we were comfortable. The house is beautiful, with a spacious deck and dipping pool, surrounded by the natural beauty (sights and sounds) of the jungle. We felt very safe because of the 24-hour security guard at the gate. The "wildlife", however, gave us a few starts! Once we got used to the Jurassic Park sized insects and bullfrogs, we settled in and were very happy. We were close to Dominical beach and not too far from Manuel antonio Park to visit daily. We loved the zipline experience the best. This is a great place to stay if you want to be secluded from the entire world, and yet close enough to go visit places. I would recommend it for those who love nature, or just want to be away from it all!

Truly a spectacular property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed at Casa Monos Locos between Apr 28 and May 5, 2018. The experience was authentic Costa Rican rainforest and an amazing adventure for all. The 3-hour drive from San Jose Airport is excellent, with new paving in the area of Portasol. The gravel road climb to the property from the highway is a thrilling yet safe drive (note 4WD required). The drive through the small village of Portalon on the way to the property is wonderful and authentic. Upon arrival, you realize how private the property is, with no other villas or structures in sight.

The bedrooms of the villa are extremely comfortable and A/C controlled. The kitchen is well-equipped for all your needs. Wifi is good, and the satellite TV with some English-language stations was great for background music. The deep pool beside the deck is perfect for re-energizing after a long day, and was amazing to stand in, in the rain during the one tropical thunderstorm we experienced. The waterfall and pools that are a five minute walk from the house were equally amazing. There is a diversity of fauna and wildlife to be seen without ever leaving the property. The night-time sounds of the jungle are amazing!!

The property is completely safe and secure with 24/7 security access control at the entrance to the Portasol properties. The property is also perfectly situated for short drives to Dominical, Manuel Antonio Park, zip-lining and white water rafting on the Savegre River. David, of Portasol Living was a perfect host and point of contact for us. As a former guide, he is a wealth of local information on everything from shopping to the best tours in the region. I highly recommend this wonderful property for first-time visitors to Costa Rica! It will leave you fulfilled, completely relaxed, and just like us - waiting to return!

Casa De Monos Locos is PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation in Costa Rica, to celebrate both mine and my mother's birthday. The house was gorgeous & made our stay even more special. The pool, the view, and the location was PERFECT. If you want to be whisked away to a tropical paradise, look no further. We will never forget this trip & hope to be back again soon! PURA VIDA!

Best bday ever!

  • 5 of 5

It was almost a year ago I decided to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends at Monos Locos in Portasol, best decision I could have ever make.

We went for the whole week and had a great time. The house has everything so we even had a BBQ night, watched the sunset, side of the pool, then a starry night with the jungle concert... Words can't describe.

And the service was the cherry at the top of the celebration!

Seriously thinking of going again (for the third time actually) this year at least for a weekend cause it is less than 30 minutes from Quepos airport anyway!

Strongly recommended for going with a group of friends or vacation with the whole family!

Rain Forest Hideway

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place in the jungle! My family of 5, (2 adults, 2 large teenage boys and 1 teenage girl) had a wonderful time with plenty of room for more. The next trip we'll bring at least 3 more friends. The house is amazing and has every amenity. Anyone looking to relax, could just stay in the pool or on the huge deck overlooking the lush green vegetation. Then there is the staff. Guillermo, Alex and most of all David, plus the cooks (If only they would come to our house to help out :). Everybody was attentive, very helpful, flexible and worked hard to make the trip perfect. The zip lines, horseback tour, scuba diving were all professionally operated and focused on safety. I travel weekly and this was the best location in the last 2 years by far. Highly recommend everyone visit and experience "Pura Vida" in person with the Tico people. Oh, and the waterfall 5 minutes away. Make the jump - we all did!
