We travel quite a bit, but never have we come across a place as unique as Playa Nicuesa. Tucked in against the Piedras Blancas National Park, Nicuesa is secluded, quiet, and surrounded by natural beauty. There is plenty of white noise - bird song, crashing waves, and howler monkeys, butthis is a place that breathes relaxation ionto every pore of your being. The grounds are beautiful, the food is varied and delicious, and the cabins are wonderful. Of course, none of this happens without an exceptional staff. Donna and Mike are gracious hosts, and their crew is exceptional. Carlos is a wonderful guide and a great person to be around. Frederico greets you with a smile each meal. Vivvi will handle any of your problems at the reception desk. Chari's cooking is to die for, and the rest of the staff completes a team that truly knows what service is all about.
We are usually sorry when a vacation comes to an end, but we are ready to go home. That was not the case here. We truly did not want to leave. Our internal clocks were tuned in to Costa Rican time, Nicuesa style, and we were already planning our next visit to this little bit of Eden on the Golfo Dulce.
