Why Michael Schnitzler chose Puntarenas

If you want to spend a few days on the ocean in a tropical environment far off the beaten tourist track, the beach cottage is just right. An open hut with a spectacular view of the Golfo Dulce, accessible only by boat and surrounded by tropical rainforest. Don't expect a luxurious, sterile vacation home like in the Caribbean or Florida, but rather a simple typical Costa Rican country house. But nevertheless, electricity, a nice kitchen and even WLAN are there.

What makes this cottage unique

The beach cottage is the last house before miles of untouched rainforest begin. Thanks to it's isolated location, you can see parrots, monkeys, coatis, raccoons and many other animals. The beach is not private but is never used by people other than the house guests. The pleasant breeze, the view over the gulf, the sounds of the birds and frogs, the beautiful plants: you feel like being in paradise!

Einmaliges Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir, 5-köpfige Famiie, verbrachten 4 wunderbare Tage in diesem einmaligen Strandhaus. Neben der Ruhe und Weitsicht genossen wir die Ausfahrten auf das Meer und die Rio Negro. Auch die Einkaufsfahrten liessen uns mit den nötigen Lebensmitteln versorgen. Das Haus ist bestens mit allem ausgestattet. Erholung pur! Wir würden gleich wieder gehen. Herzlichen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft.

Traumhütte oder Alptraum?

  • 5 of 5

Ganz klar ein Traum, abgelegen aber nicht einsam liegt die Hütte in der Nähe von Golfito. Einkäufe können per Boot erledigt werden, die nähere Umgebung kann man per Kajak oder zu Fuß (bei Ebbe) erkunden. Ansonsten bietet die Hüte jeden Komfort, außer TV oder Internet was aber gewünscht war! :-)

Seele baumeln lassen

  • 5 of 5

Wer einmal nicht erreichbar sein will, ein gutes Buch lesen will und dabei eine unbeschreiblich schöne Aussicht genießen will, ist dort genau richtig. Fernseher braucht man nicht, die Natur bietet das beste Programm: 5.45 Uhr-Wecken durch Brüllaffen, 6.00 Uhr- Gezwitscher von gefühlten 100 Vogelarten, 7.00 Uhr- Besuch der Affen oder Nasenbären (im täglichen Wechsel), 7.30 Uhr Frühstück. Danach Beobachtung von Meer, Vögeln, Schmetterlingen und anderem Getier. Dazwischen ausruhen und Meer weiter beobachten. 18.00 Uhr Begrüßung der Geckos und handgroßen Nachtfalter. Danach Fledermäuse zur Nachtschicht schicken, einen Drink nehmen (natürlich auf der Terrasse mit Meerblick) und zeitig schlafen gehen, da ja um 5.45 Uhr wieder Wecken durch Brüllaffen.... ;-)

So und so ähnlich verbrachten wir unsere Tage an der Playa Cacao. Auch für Kinder, die nicht bei jeder Ameise quickend auf den Tisch steigen, ein tolles Abenteuer.

Danke, dass wir da sein durften
