This was my first trip to Costa Rica. I had researched the area that we were going to be in but nothing prepared me for what I experienced. The new airport was a great suprise. There are not many airports in Central and South America that are this nice. The drive to Junquillal was spectacular. The many different sights and sounds along the way seemed to get you into flow of life in Costa Rica.
Upon arriving at the property we found the most beautiful and well maintained home. The two master suites seem to have been nicely upgraded. The walk in closets were nice to have. Both bedrooms have never ending views. The architects touch in using open screens in the bedroom kept the temperature cool for Costa Rica. The family dining table is a work of art. It is made from a single slab of wood and it has been lovingly cared for it appears. The kitchen is new, modern and very usable. The best feature of the house in my opinion is the deck that wraps around three sides of the house. You can find a comfortable place to read and socialize morning, noon or night. The sunsets that can be viewed from the deck are some of the most spectacular that I have seen. From the deck you can talk to the Howler Monkeys and if you are lucky as I was you will see fire flys darting in and out of the numerous trees on this huge property. We spent most of the time at the house sitting on the deck. During the day we went to the beach just down the road and read books and went fly fishing off the reef in from of the house. The beach was crowded if they were as many as five people on it at one time. The changes in the tides are huge. This creates one of the widest beaches I have been on. We too a drive to see the turtles lay their eggs and we also went to the National Park to go ziplining and inner tubing down a river. The restaurants that we visited were as good and in some cases better than five star dining in LA. Although the home may be in a quiet and semi remote area I alway felt safe and secure. I was amazed when told that the water out of the faucet was drinkable. For such a small country they have made amazing and ongoing improvements for their citizens. This vacation home offers everything that one could hope for. It was truley a blessing to be able to stay at your home.
