What makes 'La Dolce Vita' different from other properties in the region? Firstly, we are on a very large and private lot of 2,000 square meters - and the land is covered by mature plants, fruit trees and flowers. Many other properties are on smaller lots and lack our privacy... There are no vendors or buses full of tourists all over our beach. The beach feels as if it's all to yourself, but you're only 10 minutes from town. Our privacy, large lot and safety make this ideal for children to run free and play. Also, La Dolce Vita's construction is a combination of stone, brick and natural wood throughout the home, featuring striking wooden ceiling beams creating a rich, rustic and unique charm. The perfect home away from home.
30 minutes north is a town called Puerto Lopez, where tours can be taken to go snorkeling, fishing or to see the whales breaching. Also at Isla de la Plata there are sites for world-class birdwatching where half-day to full-day tours are offered!
Exquisitely landscaped property with coconut palms, fruit trees, flowers and a stunning, custom-built 8 foot brick privacy wall. Featuring gate for car entrance; Parking available for up to 10 vehicles.

Please give us a call if you have any questions or concerns before making your reservation.
Cecilia Behr purchased this estate in 2003
Why Cecilia Behr chose Salinas
The beach frontage and quality of the beach at the property was unmatched. Most of the other homes have rocky beaches or shorelines. Also loved the rustic and warm feel of the home, it feels like a real residence and not like a hostel or motel. We have invested many tens of thousands of dollars in upgrades to the property and our goal is to make this a world-class vacation destination.
What makes this estate unique
Best value in the region. Perfect, unobstructed ocean view and access. Accommodation for large parties while keeping intimacy and privacy. Not a large, cold hostel environment. Full of details and intimacy. Stone fireplace in living room.
Paintings, furnishings, mirrors, rugs, etcetera are placed throughout the home and apartments as well.
