“A taste of Paradise!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Casa dos Rios is a wonderful home located beachfront on the southern end of the Osa Peninsula in Matapalo. Looking out over the front yard one can watch macaws in the Beach Almond, monkeys frolicking in the trees, and listen to the sound of the crashing waves. It is near many wonderful areas for hiking as well as an awesome guide and adventure tour, Everyday Adventures. One can easily prepare meals or take advantage of the wonderful menu offered by the manager of the property. Just a short walk down the road leads to a local restaurant /bar which serves wonderful lunches and dinners. It comes alive on Friday nights as all of the locals gather to visit, dance, and shop from local artisans. This is the only vacation we have taken where our children made friends, had pillow fights and hated to leave the people as much as the place!! I do highly recommend a rental car as it is a 45 minute rough drive into town and there always seems to be something to get from the grocery. One should be aware that this is a rainforest location and the open breezes also mean insects adn geckos and frogs may be in the house. We were never bothered by these and found them entertaining to watch and hear.
