Great place to watch a Costa Rican sunset! Have a drink and sit in the greco roman amphitheatre and watch the sunset! Well worth the trip!

Villa Caletas Amphitheater is a real treat. The sunset behind the clouds but it was beautiful nonetheless. Dinner was just a little above average but the experience was spectacular. Make sure you ask about the history of the place. You'll be surprised.

Despite I have great references of Villa Caletas Hotel and their SPA [which I plan to try very soon] I have never stayed in the hotel. And the ONLY reason is that my father lives just a few minutes from there, and every occasion I...More
