We are here to make your Costa Rica vacation perfect! We have so much fun exploring all the activities around and get a kick helping others find the hidden gems. Whether you want high adventure, quiet walks on the beach or intensive bird watching, rely on us to help you out! We can arrange bookings on your behalf before you arrive or after you settle in. Here are just a few highlights and some photos of our favorite spots:
OUR PROPERTY First of all, it's beautiful! We're up over 600 feet in elevation, so it's much cooler than in town. Have your coffee in the morning while watching the fog roll in and the birds come alive. Take a short hike to the towering Guanacaste trees -- we have two that are absolutely magnificent. Watch the lagoon and seasonal birds that call it home. Or leaf cutter ants with their fascinating back-story (we'll tell all about it if you don't know). Yes, there are monkeys on the property and it's a real treat to see them. Creeks, waterfalls, swimming spots are all within the property. During green season (July - Aug) there are more than a dozen waterfalls on the property, and we're currently expanding the network of trails within Finca Lagunas to get to more cascades. We don't see many snakes on our property, but of course they are all around us. So many critters, in fact, that it freaks some people out. It's real Costa Rica and our place is not tame! We're part of the biological corridor and we see a lot of really crazy animals, big and small. So you may find yourself being quite content sitting on your porch with a book and a plate of mango from your front yard, never leaving the cabina, never hearing a car. Pura Vida! SURFING This stretch is not too crowded and has some amazing waves suitable for all levels. Surf lessons, board rentals, advice on the best beaches, tide charts -- we'll help with all that. Dominical is THE SPOT for surf, no doubt about it. Just ask people in the know. And we're only a couple hours from Pavones, with its world famous left break that can produce a 2 to 3 minute ride! Wanna do a tour from Dominical down? We'd be delighted to put together a surf week package! HIKING / WATERFALLS This is one of our favorite things to do! We love swimming holes and waterfalls and going to the places where you won't find many tourists. Most are free! ZIPLINES / CANOPY / RAINFOREST TOURS These can be found right in Dominical and are a great way to have high adventure and learn local ecology at the same time. WHITEWATER RAFTING Crazy high adventure on some nearby rivers. SEA KAYAKING / SCUBA / SNORKEL / WHALE WATCHING / FISHING So many places to enjoy the ocean and reputable guides to take you out. SAN ISIDRO A pretty good sized town just 35 minutes away up in the mountains. Great cultural experience with local markets. HORSE BACK RIDING Several options around -- go to waterfalls or ride on the beach. BIRDING / WILDLIFE WATCHING Just sit still! The birding at EOW is phenomenal. The same goes for all the critters of the day and night. Want to rig up a blacklight for some night time bug watching? We'll hook you up. We have all the field guides as well and are happy to loan them out. Of course there's nothing better than a troupe of monkeys moving through the trees above your cabina! SPANISH CLASSES / YOGA / MASSAGE All of that is local and accessible.
There's oh so much more! Just let us know what you and your family are into and we'll help put together a list of options to fit your time and budget.
