When you come to Costa Rica you expect amazing nature, abundant wild life, and deserted beaches... You won´t find this in Quepos or Dominical anymore, but it is exactly what we found at Playa Lapa! I visited Playa Lapa for 10 nights at the beginning of July, I wish I could have stayed there longer, this is definitely the best place in Costa Rica that I have visited and one of my favorite places in general! I was travelling with my family with a rented 4x4 and we decided to spend our whole Costa Rican vacation in this simply amazing beach rental, one of the nearest options to Corcovado National Park- only a 45 minute walk away. The two master bedrooms are beautiful, with gorgeous views of the jungle, beach and nearby lagoon. We were completely surrounded by the green vivid colours of the flaura, the sounds of birds and the singing frogs and insects, I slept so good and it was so exciting and magical to wake up in the morning! I already miss staying there! Everything was absolutely perfect. There was so much fresh fruit to pick from in the 2 hectare garden, it was brilliant! We spent many afternoons animal spotting and reading on the welcoming and private deck area of the house. We enjoyed a touching red sunset walking on the wild beach towards the lagoon, only a few minutes walk away from our ´home´. We went to the Corcovado National Park, one of the best experiences of our lives! Also not to be missed are the body surfing and strolling on the beach, breath-taking sunsets, morning choruses of howler monkeys, the vast view of the jungle and Pacific Ocean, kayaking in the lagoon viewing caiman, crocodiles, myriad birds and no other tourists, and soaking up the remarkable ambiance of the jungle’s embracing warmth, and vital intensity of “pura vida.” We are all really looking forward to go back to Playa Lapa for our next vacation!! This place is way more than a rental house, it becomes a home very quickly, 5 stars all round!
