Feel right at home while escaping to stunning scenery and a tropical paradise. It's the perfect family getaway with the comforts of home and the beauty of Costa Rica all around you. Just a 50-minute drive from Liberia Airport, Casa Familia awaits you.
Perched in the hills amid cool breezes, Casa Familia is set in a private, peaceful setting that will allow you to relax and take in the beauty of the surroundings. The spacious outdoor living offers a majestic venue to enjoy the exotic green parakeets flying all around as well as the howler monkeys howling in the distance.
As you gaze upon the white sand beaches of Playa Conchal from the oversized infinity pool, you may want to adventure out and drive to the many spectacular beaches nearby. The world class Playa Flamingo beach (our favorite) is about a 5-minute drive from the entrance to the community. Except for holiday weeks it will surprise you how few visitors there are at this amazing beach. Other beach favorites nearby include Playa Conchal (10 minutes; great for young kids with minimal surf), Playa Minas (15 minutes; secluded secret beach which offers an adventure just getting there), and many more. If you are seeking an area with more hustle and bustle, the popular tourist spot of Tamarindo is just a 25-minute drive away.
