  • Great place near the beaches!
    5 of 5

    We had a fantastic stay at Casa Mango this year. It is spacious, clean and the kitchen is well equiped. A small pool to cool off in was perfect at 3 ft. deep for the grandkids who visited. A nice shaded area on the patio where we had our breakfast or cocktails was welcomed in the heat of the day. It is close to all the resturants in town and only a short walk to Potrero Beach and the Sailing Center, plus just a short drive to all the other close by beaches of the area. All in all we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the month and would highly recommend it to all.

    Can't say enough. Every part of our 5 week stay was perfect.. Staff at Special Places very professional. They can take care of all needs and wants, just let them know. ( A special thank you to Phem. You took excellent care of us and met all our many questions with accurate assurances we needed to make this a special trip.) The condo is well kept, and the pictures on line of the condo were very accurate of the ammenities. This was our 1st time in Costa Rica and would love to return. We hosted our son-in-law and daughter and their 2 little boys. We had all we needed in house to meet all our needs. We were able to find what we needed at grocery stores in area. The Local farm market is a gem and fresh fish is available there too, and with the grill on the deck we ate very well..The pool was a very well used and enjoyed by our family. The hill climb a good work out! The area beaches are very nice and quite, we had time to visit all of them. A favorite was Conchal and Danta very close by and be sure and keep a close eye out for monkeys. We saw them finally at Playa Danta on 2 separate visits. The food in the area is also very good, and the people are wonderful. A rental car is a must, although some people rented golf carts to get around, and that worked for them. Gas carts worked best as battery carts can run out of power. The roads are good from airport to condo all paved, but many roads are dirt or gravel, off the main roads with potholes, but driveable. Be prepared for a dusty and sandy vehicle. We had a Nissan car and it got us around on all our adventures. We traveled to Monteverde Cloud forest by car. Beautiful! Take a guided tour to spot the animals. Plan an overnite trip as the road in is partially paved then gravel. Visit the artist of Guaitil and take the time to have them show off there skills of making Pottery in their open fire kilns. Take a trip to Lola's on Playa Avellanas for a real nice beach side stop off lunch as well as another Costa Rica Outstanding beach. In case you haven't figured it out we found this is truly a piece of Paradise. The Bradleys from Michigan....
