          3br house
            This Beautiful 3 bedroom Spanish style bungalow is nestled in a quiet, little subdivision that backs onto a small river, just 3 minutes outside of Paquera. White faced monkeys as well as howler monkeys frequent the trees near the river and over 150 different types of birds visit the property regularly. The restaurants, hotels and banks are just minutes away from this lovely, rural setting where horses and oxcarts are still used regularly. Local beaches Playa Pajaros and Playa Organos are just 10 minutes away and Curu Wildlife Reserve is about 5 kilometers west. An absolute must is the night kayak plankton bioluminescence tour! its through Bahia Rica Tours. Los Delfines Golf & Country Club is close to the Tambor Barcel贸 Hotel, about 20 minutes away. No car, no problem! Lots of 'taxistas' in town. Their rates are really quite reasonable. Our favorite beach is Playa Organos, just 10 minutes from the house. There are often only a few local people in the beach. Not a lot of tourists know about it. Its a bit of a hidden gem. With binoculars Isla Tortuga can be seen clearly just out a few kilometres. This is where the best snorkeling and diving is found. To get to Isla Tortuga, its best to go to Curu Biological Reserve and take the boat across. They have all of the snorkel and diving gear one might need. On the Nicoya Peninsula, just minutes outside of the little town of Paquera, the house is nestled in a small subdivision of 24 lots called Guarial. The back of the area is bordered by a small river and birds and monkeys abound. It is not a busy tourist spot so the life is more typical of the Costa Rica countryside....horses and oxcarts are common but within a few minutes the supermarkets, banks, restaurants and hotels in Paquera are all easily accessible. There are a number of beaches within a twenty minute drive from the house. The quieter local beaches, Playa Organos and Playa Pajaros are great but Curu, Tambor , Montezuma, Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are where you want to go to for more tourists and action. A real must is the night kayak bioluminescence tour to see the plankton light up! Book it through Bahia Rica. A rental car will help you access all of the area easily but there are many 'taxistas in Paquera and the rates are most reasonable. There several very good restaurants in Paquera but the busiest is probably the one in Hotel Ginana. The food is typical Costa Rican favorites and that means everything comes with rice and beans. A must is the 'casados' which means a marriage of foods. Every casado whether it is beef, chicken or seafood comes with generous helpings of rice, beans, potatoes, salad, vegetables and plantain. A huge amount of food for about $6US. Another great restaurant is 'Las Vegas'. This typical rancho style restaurant is the top in seafood. The special combo plate has amazing amounts of lobster, crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, squid and fish! All for about $20US! Paquera also has a great little pizza place on the road to the ferry. For a fun day trip, take the ferry across the Puntarenas. Its about a 90 minutes trip and the scenery is great and it will cost you about $1.50!!! You might spot some dolphins, a manta or even a whale. Puntarenas is a great little city on the west coast and it has a lot of shops, restaurants and bars to explore. If you head south from Paquera, in a few minutes you will hit Curu, thenTambor. Next, you will find Pochote, a quiet little town nestled in mangroves where the river meets the pacific. A few miles further is Cobano, the biggest town on the lower Nicoya peninsula. From here, you can hit Montezuma, Santa Teresa and Mal Pais, all with about 10 minutes. This area is very popular with tourists and there is no shortage of restaurants and shops. Santa Teresa and Montezuma are rated among the top five beaches in Costa Rica. For the younger crowd, this is where the night life is!

Ask the girls to give you a small hand feeder we invented... Best time to try this, is asking when they bring down the feeders to clean them because that's when they're swarming looking for a feeder and may be enticed to feed from your hands! TIP: Stand still and as quiet as you can ACTIVITIES & TOURS: We will try our best, recommending and/or calling to reserve for you, popular local tours & activities, according to your interests. There is a book at the office which is filled with different places to see and do in the area... MASSAGES: We also offer in-room massages (subject to if therapist is in town and her schedule). She's not just a certified massager but a Physical Therapist, she's the BEST I ever had (dealing with lymph issues, not many therapists are familiar with lymph massages, she's not only familiar with this but executes it very well) . When I thought maybe it was my personal viewpoint, I had another guest who is an avid travel cycler and seen also many massage therapists, being his legs get tight and cramped, also claimed she is the very best he had too! The reason, she's out of town is because she also teaches her techniques outside the area... It will be a special treat, if we're able to make an appointment for you! And I find her prices to be reasonable, for in room service. =) BEST SEAFOOD: Highly recommend "Las Vegas" also known as "La Puruja" (about 2 minutes down the gravel road from us). Don't under estimate its unique atmosphere, it's the best fresh fish, I ever had with very large portions, that you can share or ask for the smaller portion. STANDARDS OF COSTA RICA: ~ Cold Water is the standard and so most prefer it that way (we have 10 units with Hot water and 6 that have cold water). ~ AC, is not the standard because many parts of Costa Rica are quite cool but our area is quite HOT, don't be fooled and make sure when offered AC, they're not offering just floor fans or ceiling fans which will just circulate hot air, we offer true AC. ~ Gratuities or Tips are not standard in Costa Rica, therefore you're not under any obligation but if you feel you have been given exceptional service, it will not jeopardize our employees to accept it, on the contrary, it will be appreciated being wages are low... We do suggest to check your meal tickets when dining out, to avoid double tipping being some establishments will already add it in, in form of a % service fee. ~ Septic Tanks are standard so most places have garbage next to toilets, not just for diapers or sanitary pads but to actually throw ALL used toilet paper. We have septic tanks and this is the custom, it does help but we understand not all our guests will be doing this, regardless, we still have our septic tanks cleaned year round...

The cabina is difficult to find the first time and I will probably need to guide you to it.

She's not just a certified massager but a Physical Therapist, she's the BEST I ever had (dealing with lymph issues, not many therapists are familiar with lymph massages, she's not only familiar with this but executes it very well) . When I thought maybe it was my personal viewpoint, I had another guest who is an avid travel cycler and seen also many massage therapists, being his legs get tight and cramped, also claimed she is the very best he had too! The reason, she's out of town is because she also teaches her techniques outside the area... It will be a special treat, if we're able to make an appointment for you! And I find her prices to be reasonable, for in room service. =) BEST SEAFOOD: Highly recommend "Las Vegas" also known as "La Puruja" (about 2 minutes down the gravel road from us). Don't under estimate its unique atmosphere, it's the best fresh fish, I ever had with very large portions, that you can share or ask for the smaller portion. STANDARDS OF COSTA RICA: ~ Cold Water is the standard and so most prefer it that way (we have 10 units with Hot water and 6 that have cold water). ~ AC, is not the standard because many parts of Costa Rica are quite cool but our area is quite HOT, don't be fooled and make sure when offered AC, they're not offering just floor fans or ceiling fans which will just circulate hot air, we offer true AC. ~ Gratuities or Tips are not standard in Costa Rica, therefore you're not under any obligation but if you feel you have been given exceptional service, it will not jeopardize our employees to accept it, on the contrary, it will be appreciated being wages are low... We do suggest to check your meal tickets when dining out, to avoid double tipping being some establishments will already add it in, in form of a % service fee. ~ Septic Tanks are standard so most places have garbage next to toilets, not just for diapers or sanitary pads but to actually throw ALL used toilet paper. We have septic tanks and this is the custom, it does help but we understand not all our guests will be doing this, regardless, we still have our septic tanks cleaned year round...

The Restaurant is for sale, including Liquor License and small 3B/1B House on the back for $250,000! =) HUMMING BIRDS: You're welcomed to participate in the unique experience of hand feeding these beautiful mesmerizing tiny birds! Ask the girls to give you a small hand feeder we invented... Best time to try this, is asking when they bring down the feeders to clean them because that's when they're swarming looking for a feeder and may be enticed to feed from your hands! TIP: Stand still and as quiet as you can ACTIVITIES & TOURS: We will try our best, recommending and/or calling to reserve for you, popular local tours & activities, according to your interests.

She's not just a certified massager but a Physical Therapist, she's the BEST I ever had (dealing with lymph issues, not many therapists are familiar with lymph massages, she's not only familiar with this but executes it very well) . When I thought maybe it was my personal viewpoint, I had another guest who is an avid travel cycler and seen also many massage therapists, being his legs get tight and cramped, also claimed she is the very best he had too! The reason, she's out of town is because she also teaches her techniques outside the area... It will be a special treat, if we're able to make an appointment for you! And I find her prices to be reasonable, for in room service. =) BEST SEAFOOD: Highly recommend "Las Vegas" also known as "La Puruja" (about 2 minutes down the gravel road from us). Don't under estimate its unique atmosphere, it's the best fresh fish, I ever had with very large portions, that you can share or ask for the smaller portion. STANDARDS OF COSTA RICA: ~ Cold Water is the standard and so most prefer it that way (we have 10 units with Hot water and 6 that have cold water). ~ AC, is not the standard because many parts of Costa Rica are quite cool but our area is quite HOT, don't be fooled and make sure when offered AC, they're not offering just floor fans or ceiling fans which will just circulate hot air, we offer true AC. ~ Gratuities or Tips are not standard in Costa Rica, therefore you're not under any obligation but if you feel you have been given exceptional service, it will not jeopardize our employees to accept it, on the contrary, it will be appreciated being wages are low... We do suggest to check your meal tickets when dining out, to avoid double tipping being some establishments will already add it in, in form of a % service fee. ~ Septic Tanks are standard so most places have garbage next to toilets, not just for diapers or sanitary pads but to actually throw ALL used toilet paper. We have septic tanks and this is the custom, it does help but we understand not all our guests will be doing this, regardless, we still have our septic tanks cleaned year round...

MAPI'S RESTAURANT: It's with great sorrow, the Restaurant has closed and relocated to center of town! But if you've been dreaming about a Restaurant business in this country or ANY other business of your choice, you can easily transform this building! Check this out while you're here and make it your reality! Though we will still look to rent it again, the Restaurant is for sale, including Liquor License and small 3B/1B House on the back for only $250,000! =) HUMMING BIRDS: You're welcomed to participate in the unique experience of hand feeding these beautiful mesmerizing tiny birds! Ask the girls to give you a small hand feeder... Best time to try this, is asking when they bring down the feeders to clean them because that's when they're swarming looking for a feeder and may be enticed to feed from your hands! TIP: Stand still and as quiet as you can ACTIVITIES & TOURS: We will try our best, recommending and/or calling to reserve for you, popular local tours & activities, according to your interests. There is a book at the office which is filled with different places to see and do in the area... MASSAGES: We also offer in-room massages (subject to if therapist is in town and her schedule). She's not just a certified massager but a Physical Therapist, she's the BEST I ever had (dealing with lymph issues, not many therapists are familiar with lymph massages, she's not only familiar with this but executes it very well) . When I thought maybe it was my personal viewpoint, I had another guest who is an avid travel cycler and seen also many massage therapists, being his legs get tight and cramped, also claimed she is the very best he had too! The reason, she's out of town is because she also teaches her techniques outside the area... It will be a special treat, if we're able to make an appointment for you! And I find her prices to be reasonable, for in room service. =) BEST SEAFOOD: Highly recommend "Las Vegas" also known as "La Puruja" (about 2 minutes down the gravel road from us). Don't under estimate its unique atmosphere, it's the best fresh fish, I ever had with very large portions, that you can share or ask for the smaller portion. STANDARDS OF COSTA RICA: ~ Cold Water is the standard and so most prefer it that way (we have 10 units with Hot water and 6 that have cold water). ~ AC, is not the standard because many parts of Costa Rica are quite cool but our area is quite HOT, don't be fooled and make sure when offered AC, they're not offering just floor fans or ceiling fans which will just circulate hot air, we offer true AC. ~ Gratuities or Tips are not standard in Costa Rica, therefore you're not under any obligation but if you feel you have been given exceptional service, it will not jeopardize our employees to accept it, on the contrary, it will be appreciated being wages are low... We do suggest to check your meal tickets when dining out, to avoid double tipping being some establishments will already add it in, in form of a % service fee. ~ Septic Tanks are standard so most places have garbage next to toilets, not just for diapers or sanitary pads but to actually throw ALL used toilet paper. We have septic tanks and this is the custom, it does help but we understand not all our guests will be doing this, regardless, we still have our septic tanks cleaned year round...
