This charming home is located just south of Montezuma and is surrounded by sandy beaches and rock formations ideal for fishing, beach-combing, and 'getting away from it all'. El Rafal faces the ocean and is encircled by beautiful tropical gardens on approximately 6150m2 of private property. There is a beautiful private beach just 50 meters from the patio. The house is located in a quiet, private area, with only 3 homes nearby. Safe, off street parking is included.
El Rafal is located at one of the top five destinations for fishing from shore & surfing in this area. Anglers, bring your fishing pole or learn to fish like a local with a 'carrete'. If you surf, the long left point break of Los Cedros is a favorite among tourists and locals. Cedros beach is uncrowded and perfect for swimming, sun bathing, and shelling.
A quiet river with a small waterfall that drops into a freshwater lagoon is not far from El Rafal. This clear freshwater swimming hole has a rope swing that is sure to delight children and the child within you!
Each bedroom has an on suite bath and hidden safe. One bedroom is furnished with a double bed and the second bedroom is furnished with a double bed and bunk beds that sleep two. Large windows allow sea breezes to circulate and cool the rooms naturally. The bedrooms are separated by a fully furnished kitchen which opens onto a large covered patio facing the ocean. The patio is the perfect for outdoor dining or simply lounging in a hammock, while creating wonderful memories with friends and family.

The house is located between the town of Montezuma(3 kilometers south) and the tiny fishing village of Cabuya (3 kilometers north).
Montezuma has become one of 'the places' to visit in Costa Rica. It has many shops, restaurants, sodas, and artisans. Local night life happens at Chico's Bar and the Montezuma Bar. Dining in Montezuma is diverse with more than a dozen restaurants ranging from Tico 'sodas' to gourmet meals with prices and flavors to suit every budget. There is an organic market on Saturday mornings in the park. Fresh organic produce and local products including souvenirs are sold as the community gathers to visit with friends and neighbors. There are several tour offices to help you arrange deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, Tortuga Island, and horseback tours. Montezuma has a canopy zip-line tour that allows you to 'fly' over rivers and waterfalls. There is a larger waterfall and swimming hole located just before you leave Montezuma. A short 20 minute hike up the river will take you to the falls.
Cabuya is a tiny fishing village where one can get to know real Ticos. Tourism has not made many changes here. Cabuya's cemetery is located on an uninhabited island that is accessible from the mainland only during low tide. The island is beautiful and some of the best snorkeling in the area is found in the waters off the island. Cabuya is close to the Cabo Blanco Absolute Natural Preserve, which is a must see for nature lovers.
It is not necessary to rent a car while you stay at El Rafal. It is about a 30 minute walk to Montezuma and about 45 minutes to Cabuya. There are local taxis and a bus that runs daily.
