Imagine your ideal vacation... perhaps it's back to nature: hiking in a pristine rainforest, seeing a live volcano, or watching whales and dolphins. Maybe you love water sports: whitewater rafting, sailing, fishing, surfing, snorkel or scuba. Or fun on the land: ziplining, cycling, hiking. Or just chilling on an endless stretch of unspoiled beach, lulled by the lapping of the waves on the shore, awaiting yet another spectacular sunset.

Our home is in Surfside and is a short walk from lovely Potrero Beach. There is easy access to local supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars, many within a few minutes' walk.

Surfside is located just north of Flamingo. It's a real community, not a holiday resort. Some residents are permanent, some come for the winter, and some just for a few weeks. The people are a mix of Canadians, Americans, Europeans and Costa Ricans of all ages from infants to retirees. It's the kind of place where visitors feel immediately at home.

                                                              Comfortable, spacious, beautiful home 20 minutes from Danta Beach!

                                                              Melissa R.Gainesville, FL

                                                              Casa Esmeralda was the perfect place for our family Christmas getaway! Danta beach is a short drive away and there's lots of supermarkets, restaurants and soditas less than 5 minutes away. The automatic A/C units throughout the different rooms allowed each of us to control the room temperature to our liking. The kitchen, although small, was very lovely. There's a beautiful starfruit tree right outside the kitchen that I enjoyed very much (yum!). The location was a little hard to find, but I'm not great with directions and it was getting dark. Gary was incredible during the booking process and Captain was awesome when we arrived.

                                                              The only reason I'm not giving it a 5-star rating is because due to a burglary, all the TV's and sound system were missing. My fiancée and I had planned to let the family know of our recent engagement with a photo-slide and music, but the situation really killed it for us. The burglary is by no means the owners fault, but the lack of communication was. We didn't find out about the burglary till we arrived and asked about the TV's. Also, we were looking forward to family movie nights and dancing to Christmas music, so that was disappointing.

                                                              Overall, other than the missing TV's, I'm happy with my stay and very much looking forward to going back in the near future!

                                                              Tempate, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

                                                              Imagine your ideal vacation... Perhaps it's back to nature: hiking in a pristine rainforest, seeing a live volcano, or watching whales and dolphins. Maybe you love water sports: whitewater rafting, sailing, fishing, surfing, snorkel or scuba. Or fun on the land: ziplining, cycling, hiking. Or just chilling on an endless stretch of unspoiled beach, lulled by the lapping of the waves on the shore, awaiting yet another spectacular sunset. Now imagine a place that has all these things and more. Costa Rica has it all. And the Northwest Pacific area puts it all within easy reach. Our home is in Surfside and is a short walk from lovely Potrero Beach. There is easy access to local supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars, many within a few minutes' walk. Surfside is located just north of Flamingo. It's a real community, not a holiday resort. Some residents are permanent, some come for the winter, and some just for a few weeks. The people are a mix of Canadians, Americans, Europeans and Costa Ricans of all ages from infants to retirees. It's the kind of place where visitors feel immediately at home.
