My fiance and I spent eight days at Papagayo Village and loved every moment. Allen one of the owners of this beautiful quaint resort lives on site and takes great pride in the upkeep and maintenance of the lovely grounds, pool and individual villas. The villa we stayed in had a full kitchen, washing machine, living room area with a TV ( that we never once turned on) AC and a great covered patio with a table, chairs and my favorite feature a hammock!
The beach is a short walk away as is a grocery store and several restaurants. For night life Playa Coco is a quick taxi ride away and has everything from sports bars to dance till you drop nightclubs as well as many small and interesting shops. Allen is a great resource to help you plan or decide what activities you want to enjoy and can help book your adventures. We went deep sea fishing, Zip lining, horseback riding, enjoyed a river trip where we saw croc's,colorful birds and monkeys, went snorkeling, rock wall climbing, rode over some crazy rapids on inner tubes, hiked to a beautiful waterfall and were the only ones there the whole time. Oh and after the hike we restored our tired bodies in thermal hot springs and a mud bath. The beaches were beautiful and the scenery lush and exotic. We are tempted to change our wedding day ideas and return to Playa Hermosa to exchange our vows, Allen can even handle that as he has married many couples through the years as a minister back in the United States as well as in Costa Rica. Great spot for couples, families or group vacations.
