Absolute paradise on the beach!

My wife, young daughter, mother and mother-in-law all accompanied me on our amazing trip to Costa Rica, and Casa Del Suenos. This home, and the town it is in, is absolute paradise. We drove ourselves from San Jose airport, and following the directions from Dave and Kate, met them at exactly the expected time. They were very helpful, both before and during our stay here, and even arranged a fishing trip with a local fisherman, which I would highly recommend. The pictures on here of the home do not do it justice, as in reality, it is far more beautiful. The home is well maintained, and perfectly located. The backyard has lots of privacy, and we really enjoyed the pool! With both a shallow end and a deep end separated by a wall, it is perfect for children and families. My daughter is almost 3, and she learned to swim while we were there! This is also an excellent jumping off point for day trips. We were able to easily drive to Manuel Antonio park in less than an hour, spent an afternoon wandering through Jaco beach, drove to the mangroves for a monkey tour. Do the monkey tour, if nothing else, it's awesome! We also went zip lining at an incredible place nearby with 13 runs! The local restaurants were also fantastic. Being such a small town, I was unsure of how they would be, but I was incredibly impressed by the food and service. Las Heliconias has an amazing menu full of some of the freshest food I've had anywhere. Try the chimichangas! El Vago has wonderful pizza, and is a neat little surf side joint. The Mini-Super has virtually everything you will need for your stay, it's like a grocery store and convenience store in one, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and managed very well even without knowing any Spanish.I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone wishing to experience the paradise that is Costa Rica, and we will definitely be returning ourselves! I can't wait to go back!
