We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beachfront house! The location is great, right on the beach, and amenities in the town are within walking distance. The house was well equipped and spacious, our favourite part being the outdoor shower (for a quick rinse after coming in from the beach).
The drive from the airport to Cabuya around the Gulf of Nicoya is strenuous (some steep and unpaved roads). Check the ferry schedule from Puntarenas to Paquera to avoid the rough sections, or consider taking a domestic flight. Or just be prepared for several bumpy hours.
What to do:
Swimming (high tide) and reading on the patio (low tide) are easy and obvious options. We also walked to the island (great for looking at the rock formations), checked the pools in the river, booked a snorkeling tour (beautiful tropical fish) and a canopy tour (including a beautiful waterfall swim), drove to Mal Pais (though found the high waves and pebbles a bit rough) and hiked through Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve (be prepared to sweat!).
The lady at the local cafe was very helpful "on-site" for finding our way around and the organisation.
We definitely recommend this place, as it provides both the seclusion and peacefulness, while still in relative proximity to tourism infrastructure.
By the way, we could watch monkey clamber through the trees during the day, and howling during the night. And in the morning a myriad of birds sing to greet you!
