“Perfect Getaway from it all”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Long overdue review, but i stayed with my Partner at "Sand Dollar Cove" for a week in June of 2012 and loved it.

If you are looking for you own private beach, then you found it. Great beach, away from anything "touristy".

The owners were very accommodating and helpful.

There is a store about a 20 min dive away which has a descent selection of items, though stocking up on supplies and gas is better done on the way.

The Flying Scorpion has good food and great company, which you can walk to in 10 mins.

You feel very "away from it all" in the area. We loved having our "private beach" for the week.

Loved the San Miguel area and will definitely be back.

Be warned: The roads are god awful. Don't drive at night and rent a 4x4. But it's part of what keeps the area from being over run and over developed so it's a blessing in disguise. Also, CR doesn't believe in road signs. don't get overwhelmed by the directions to the house, just follow them to a T and you'll get there.

Also, the GPS is mostly useless we found. A good MAP would be a better option, and be sure to ask locals for conditions, especially in the rainy season. (But if they tell you to drive on the beach, please don't as it damages turtle nests)
