This place was so wonderful for its price. Located on a much more secluded part of the beach, its charm lies in its mellow, laid back atmosphere, matched with a a sense of being connected with the local life here. Once you catch wind of the vegetable and fruit truck schedule, you can buy all the local fruit and vegetables you need several times a week (it's helpful if you speak some basic Spanish!). One of the owner's families has owned this property for generations, and the houses are still built in a classical Costa Rican style rather than a European style building. Kiana, the other owner who's originally from Austria, is a lovely woman who was attending yoga with me on her daughter's neighbouring property where a gazebo houses morning yoga daily. The Beach is just across the small dirt road that separates this property from the Ocean, and 2 out of the 3 little huts available for rent have an Ocean view...Gorgeous.
