Our stay at Casa Macondo was incredible. The villas are secured behind a gate, so we felt completely safe. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. The villas are brilliantly designed to bring the outdoors in, and are oriented in a way that affords complete privacy from other guests. The wonderful tropical trail to the beach was pleasant. Dahlia is the on site manager, but I hate to say it that way because she is so much more than that. She's a delightful, knowledgeable and extremely helpful host, guide, translator, etc. She made sure we had everything we needed at all times.
The Nicoya peninsula IS Costa Rica..it's worth the adventure to make your way to this more remote part of the country.
We can't wait to come back next year.
