Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5
I didn't want to write a review as I wanted to keep this place a hidden gem and didn't want to share!!! I wanted to go to Carate because of its bio diversity. I was not disappointed. What surprised me was the comfort of Playa Lapas. It is a real haven in the rainforest- it is so comfortable I felt it was home. It was surreal to have lights and internet due to the ingenious solar power system. It wasn't out of place as it didn't encroach on the wildlife and sounds and sights all around. Playa Lapas is ideally situated to Corcavado Park- an hour leisurely walk along the beach from the front of the property. Manuel the caretaker is just great. He would always help with any question or task with a smile . Another gem there was Phoebe- the most amazing guide and naturalist who has a turtle hatchery right in front of the property on the beach. Her knowledge of turtles and ability to point animals out that I would have missed was enlightening. I will return!

Paradise.... comfortable yet tropical!

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!
