We first visited Costa Rica in 2006, taking a pontoon river tour from a Panama Canal cruise. We decided on Coco Beach because of its location on the Pacific and the very low, almost year round, LOW humidity. We wanted to rent a quiet, special place without 'apartment house feel' while still providing a pool and quick access to the beach and all activities Costa Rica is famous for. We also had to find a place that was somewhat handicap accessible, since Chris is wheelchair bound. The Green Mystery staff and villa owners were very accommodating and our first 10 day visit was magical. It helped us get serious about purchasing a villa as a retirement/vacation home! This is the closest villa to the parking lot and has a private view of the hill that separates the Green Mystery villas from Playas del Coco. We purchased villa 10 in November 2012 and spent three weeks in December converting the bathroom for handicap accessibility. We're years away from retirement, so help us enjoy this beautiful spot in the years to come!
We loved the unique community, great beaches and the low humidity weather. The people that own and visit Green Mystery share a love for nature, privacy and a love of animals. Close proximity to the Coco,Hermosa and other Coastal beaches, exceptional fresh seafood, excellent restaurants, entertainment, the Hidden Garden Art Gallery, musical entertainment and the medical facilities.
The large covered Rancho next to the pool, provides sunbathing, swimming, lounging and if wanted-group cooking with use of the pizza ovens, griddle and barbecue grills.
The trip up the hill doesn’t require hiking equipment and has an incredible view of Coco Beach bay!
If you like to cook, you can get fresh fish & shrimp from the fish man who delivers once a week, pick up fresh fruit and vegetables at the Ocotal road market and also get fresh bread and bakery treats weekly from the bread man. Make a special dinner for two in your full kitchen villa or join in with others for a group dinner at the Rancho!
If you like to eat out, there are a multitude of great Coco/Hermosa restaurants! Walk along the beach and stop in for lunch and a brew. A number of local breakfast places from Costa Rican authentic to standard American fare. Dinner ranging from simple to fine dining.
Avispas Adventures can provide information for any activity you would like to pursue. They can help you take off on your own or arrange for a guided tour!
