Playa Panama Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Vista Bahia Beach condominium of Playa Panama is the one of the most serene beachfront communities on the north west coast of Costa Rica. Just 20 to 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport where non-stop flights arrive, it is most convenient. The condos are strategically located just 3 minutes walking distance from the healing waters of Papagayo Bay. The Gulf of Papogayo is considered the Gold Coast of Costa Rica because of its sun-drenched beaches, year-round surf, picturesque stretches of beaches and seaside communities. From booming resort towns to undeveloped white, brown and black sand beaches, the Gold Coast is a Mecca for wave-riders, sun-lovers and adventure aficionados. Located at the Condo there are beaches all around; to the left at low tide is a small private beach where you can be alone for hours. To the right, during high and low tide, you can walk the beach and circle all the way across to the far side of the bay where you will discover a reef and a great variety of coral and shells on the beach.
2 of our condominiums are located on the bottom floor of a two-story four-unit building and the other 2 are on the top of the same building. There is security on the premises 24/7. The suites are situated close to the 2 beaches, only a 2 minute walk. The entire community is surrounded by the natural landscape, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and has a unique flora and fauna. This is unlike most condominiums where they often clear cut the natural foliage and then replant. Because of its undisturbed surroundings you will wake up to families of monkeys (even babies) in nearby trees and enjoy their frolicking as you enjoy your morning breakfast on the balcony along with all sorts of wildlife.
This is a nature lover’s paradise. The abundant wildlife offers any avid photographer the opportunity to photograph a variety of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and flora at close range. Take a trip to the Volcanoes and you could be on the top of world with amazing views. Imagine the pictures you will be able to take up there!
The condo has 800 sq feet of living space and sleeps four persons with one queen bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. The bathroom has his and her sinks and the shower/bath tub is in a closed room along with the commode. The cozy kitchen is appointed with beautiful Granite counter tops, sink, dual electric burners, refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven, toaster, utensils, plates, glasses, pots and pans. Everything you need to prepare breakfast or lunch if you wish. It is not really set up to cook dinners but small dinners will work. The management only keeps a certain amount of kitchen utensils in each unit so it is not up to us to add more like I would like. There are limitations in utensils to use in the kitchen, I can explain more if you would like to discuss the kitchen.
My wife and I love to enjoy the mornings in the condo so we go to the local market which is minutes away and stock up on the copious amounts of fresh fruit, eggs, cheese and breads, not to mention the local beer (Imperial and Bavaria) for later that day!
If extra sleeping accommodations are desired for your kids or other guests there is a connecting door to our other condo unit (top floor and bottom). The connected condo can be part of your stay for a slight increase in the rate.
Before you go I would love to chat with you to let you know what I have experienced in the past 8 years of visiting this area. I never, I repeat never had a bad meal. The restaurants in that area are incredible. If you are a seafood lover you are in for a treat. If not, you still will have phenomenal meals. I have a list of restaurants we go to regularly and would recommend to anyone who stays here to patronize them for your own good! As far as beaches, ours (Playa Panama) is the most private as I mentioned earlier, 5 minutes away to the next town is Playa Hermosa, now this beach has beautiful sand and more waves for body surfing. There are also restaurants and bars on the beach for breathtaking sunset dinners and cocktails. Another 10 minutes away is Playa Coco where the tourist shops, restaurants and bars are. There you could find the nightlife area, should you feel the need to party! The beach there is also nice.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions. I am always open to help out in any way possible.
Keywords: Condominium property, Hiking Trails, Tours, Wildlife, Birds, Fishing, on Pacific Ocean beach in Playa Panama, Guanacaste province, 20 minutes from Liberia Airport. Perfect for romantic get aways and families. Children friendly. The resort owner has decided to close the restaurant and bar down during the slow season this year. It should be up for the high season but I just want you to be aware. The good news is the $25 per day fee is no longer in effect plus you will be in an upgraded condo with unobstructed views. Below is what you will expect to get when you arrive.
The units will have all the same amenities in terms of towels soaps coffee, etc (just like a hotel). The Kayaks, snorkel gear, pool will be available as well as chairs. We are working on getting SKY TV to set up cable/Internet since the resort owner shut down the cable/internet for the slow season. As well there will be people on the resort 24/7. The only main change is that the restaurant and front desk won't be operating but James the manager of the resort will be down at the office most of the time so if you need anything he can assist you with that.
So the biggest change is no restaurant/bar and possibly no cable/internet (to be determined if installed in time for your arrival) But the good news is the $25 per day fee is waived plus you will be in an upgraded condo with unobstructed views. Everything else around the grounds will be exactly the same, walkways and trails with overlooks to the beach, wildlife all around.

I have been happily married for the past 14 years. My loving wife Joan and I have one child named Charlie who is now 13 years old. I was in Commercial Video Post Production business around 25 years, I have temporarily resigned from my business so I could pursue other ventures. My future endeavors include helping better our environment, volunteer for my community and possibly get involved in health care as well as spending more time with my family. I have been on the east coast, in and around NYC my entire life. 7 years ago we went on a vacation to Costa Rica's Gulf of Papagayo, we loved it so much we purchased the condo a month later. Monarch Resort condominium/hotel of Playa Panama was a perfect place for us because of the location to and from the airport and privacy it offers. We vacation here at least twice a year. I am considering moving down to Costa Rica someday, hopefully sooner than later. I love fishing, working with my hands and many other hobbies.
I chose this area because of the natural habitat and peaceful setting of the condominium. It is quite tranquil with few tourist around. If I feel the need for people watching I go to the next town 2 minutes away called Playa Hermosa or Playa Coco which is 10 minutes away. I have always been a beach person and love to fish. There is everything and nothing to do here, the choice is yours.
The serene surroundings, spacious condos, wildlife and beaches are a few benefits I enjoy when vacationing. Even the restaurants around the area are phenomenal! The manager is always helpful to guest and owners alike, feel free to ask for whatever comes to mind.
