This location was perfect

  • 5 of 5
House was perfect, clean, great location if you want the true Costa Rican feel. Daniel was more than happy to help us with excursions off the beaten path. Beach was a great walk, not crowded and safe. Local restaurants were very good. We had six adults who enjoyed morning animals, birds and lizards. Pool was cleaned twice during our stay and housekeeping came once. Toilets were not an
issue ( that's how it's done in Costa Rica, it's okay). We really enjoyed the pool. The house could use some up keep with the swing, two chairs outside and the stove which is a little temperamental. Otherwise great place, definitely need a car. Thank you Daniel and Chloe.

A gem of a house, Great location and service

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Casa Tucana. The house was lovely and well furnished. Very relaxing and private setting. The rooms were large with tall ceilings, the salt water pool…. Aaaah…. perfect! We played ping pong on the beautiful teak table and BBQ on the patio. There was monkeys in the trees and a sloth too. Kids were very excited….so were we!
Daniel (owners' son) was super helpful. He and his wife are from California, so it was easy to communicate. They arranged some fun things for us to do. It was really nice not to have to deal with the planning. We rented local cell phones from them so we could always be in touch, which was reassuring. Our favorites adventures were: surf lesson & jet ski with Daniel, Zip lines and the Crocodile River tour. We also spent a day in Manuel Antonio and an afternoon in Jaco which are only about a 20-35 minute drive each way. Its was fun but quite a bit more crowded than Esterillos.

THis was a super relaxing setting, the beach went for miles and was perfect for surfing and boogie boarding (rented boards from Daniel - very convenient). Kids had fun swimming in the calm water of the tide pools (water is about 85F). We were the only ones on the beach most of the time except for a few locals.
We stocked up on food in Jaco before getting to the house, as Chloe had suggested, and got pretty much everything else we needed at the local grocery store. There are 3 restaurants in the village, we tried them all, all fresh, tasty food.
Over all, we totally loved our stay at Casa Tucana and recommend it for families or groups who want to experience the real Costa Rica.
Thanks Dan and Chlo for a fantastic time.
