We loved our stay at Casa Toucan. Beautiful Home in the Rain Forest. Unbelievable birds and wildlife. The house is well equipped, very clean, and comfortable. We are already looking forward to our next trip. Pura Vida

We sailed into Bahia Ballena in 1989, met the mayor of Tambor who took us on horseback to see the property. We fell in love with the views, the privacy, and especially, the 'Ticos.' This is a very special place to recharge your batteries. No TV necessary- it is the real 'nature channel.'

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

We had this home built as a family retreat. It is unique in that each generation that visits loves the house and setting without the distractions of modern life- there is real communication between everyone.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever been on. Waking up to the howler monkeys and birds chirping. Having our morning tea amongst the wildlife on the porch overlooking the bay was priceless. We loved our daily walks up the hill from the house, spotting the birds, flowers and butterflies. The house was so spacious and cool, situated with the most amazing view of the bay even from the swimming pool!
We enjoyed cooking fresh fish on the BBQ from the wharf and visiting the farmers market on Mondays for the most amazing fresh produce. The locals were really friendly and helpful.
We plan on returning again and again.

RELAXED

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time staying at this house and it was even more enjoyable than the first. The house is very comfortable and fully equipped for a small group or family. We made daily use of the pool which has a great view of Bahia Balena. I noticed the landscaping had been improved all around the house . Many new colorful plants. We stayed a week but wish we could have stayed longer.

AMAZING VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This house is a perfect place to escape from the normal day to day. Tambor is a quiet town away from the crazy tourist areas, but there are a lot of activities to do within a 30-40 minute drive, so definitely rent a 4WD car. The location is also very convenient because it is close to the Tambor airport, which you can fly directly to from the capital, San Jose. The house was very well maintained and clean and my favorite place to spend time was the patio (fully furnished) where you could watch the sun rise and just soak in the incredible view. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested in a relaxing vacation. I have been here 3 times with family and friends and will definitely be returning!

THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Off the beaten path with a view you can't believe! That said, you're minutes from the beach and great places to get and drink. Only

Not to be missed

P.S. The monkeys are amazing!

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
I've loved Costa Rica since the first time I visited, but enjoyed it even more staying at Casa Toucan. All of it's amenities allow for you to enjoy Costa Rica without even leaving the house. The view from the pool/patio is breathtaking - you are up in the hills overlooking the bay with beautiful sunrises each morning. You can easily get some exercise hiking the road while enjoying the rainforest. There is also wifi internet available (new within the last couple of years).

The area around Tambor also has a lot to offer from beaches, zip lining, fishing, horse back riding, swimming in waterfalls, and my favorite, exlporing the area on an ATV. My 4 of my friends and I stayed 10 days and felt like we wanted to stay longer. I can't wait until I go back.
