On my bucket list was to spend a MONTH in Costa Rica, and I am so glad I stayed at Villa Cristal. This 3 bedroom house was PERFECT. Although this sounds crazy, I actually had 8 different couples stay with me (2 couples per week) over the month stay. Without exception, EVERYONE loved it. The house was a modern, clean and well designed. The pool was HEAVEN! The grounds were tropical and exotic. The bird and animal life was overwhelming. The staff was superb! It is so rare in life to have your expectations exceeded, but this house was a great based to have my trip of a lifetime. Oh yes, and this part of the country has SUCH interesting places within an hour's drive.
