Wow, wow, wow! That was the mantra we all sang when we actually saw Casa Pura Vista! We knew we had arrived to heaven when we reached the top of the mountain and saw the incredible 360` views and the fabulous infinity pool that runs across the front of the expansive outdoor living area. Breathtaking is an understatement! From our concierge Kimberly, who greeting us upon arrival, to Renzo the uber talented house chef, to friendly Guillermo, our trusty house boy, we felt like we were staying with friends in the lap of luxury. Kimberly helped us with all our many questions both before and during the stay, always patient while arranging transportation, tours and assisting with menu suggestions with chef Renzo. She truly made this the easiest vacation we have ever planned!! Don't miss the zipline tours, rafting, national park and the mangrove boat ride, we thoroughly enjoyed all her carefully chosen tour companies. Renzo surprised us daily with his culinary skills, his mahi mahi ceviche was a family favorite, as well as the patacones and beans.....yummy! Beyond the people though was this elegantly appointed masterpiece of a home, with its wide open spaces, comfy indoor and outdoor living areas and the incredible added bonus of looking right down on a scarlet macaw rehab center in the canyon below the home. Those majestic birds kept us entertained our entire stay as they squaked and flew around during the day, as well as we loved our visiting howler monkeys and a little sloth that slept in a tree near the house for a few days. My kids were enthralled and took at least 1000 photos of each!! We thought we would spend more time at the beach, but we enjoyed being around the house so much, if we weren't on tours, we just lounged around and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of our fabulous home and location. Although I honestly wouldn't recommend this home for small children due to the high balconies, I certainly would highly recommend it for just about anyone else! Casa Pura Vista......so high on the hill you will be sure you went to Heaven!
