On a road trip through Costa Rica I needed a place to stay, preferably away from 'touristy' places.
Playa Matapalo on the map looked like it could fit the bill, and finding the nice sign 'Dos Palmas Beach Cabinas' confirmed that I was onto something! Driving onto the property I knew right away that it was all I had hoped to find!
Located right on a gorgeous, unspoiled beach, yet very private and quiet; wildlife everywhere; spacious, cheerful rooms with a fridge; terrific hosts; it's the perfect place to experience real Costa Rica! Rachel and Adam can keep you busy exploring the beautiful area for days, my stay was definitely too short.
Listen to them regarding the 'bugs' though! Mosquitoes don't bother me too much, but there are some other really nasty beasties on the beach, and you don't feel them bite!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This house is right on the beach! Very affordable, clean with great hosts who are knowledgable about the area and things to do! We offer dinners upon reservation. Matapalo beach is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica and one of the most uncrowded. Monkeys all around! If you want peace and privacy for your beach vacation, this is the place. The bedrooms have king beds, and we have extra mattresses if you have more than 2 persons that want to share a room. Very large bedrooms with own private bath and shower. There are a couple of small restaurants in the area. The bus comes about 2 km from the house and is a very short $5 cab ride from where the bus lets off. There is a small grocery in Matapalo and you are only 34 km from Manuel Antonio, the most popular destination in Costa Rica! Then 14 km to the South you have Dominical, a quaint surfing town with many restaurants and nightlife. Great surfing, lots of wildlife. Breakfast consist of fresh fruit. ... more less
