We escaped the Polar Vortex in the Northeast and headed to guaranteed warm weather and waves in Playa Grande - not our first time in Costa Rica, as we have stayed in Tamarindo and as far south as Esterillos - but this is now our favorite spot!! As a family of 4 surfers, a walk to the surf and restaurants was key! Our property manager, Marianela was very helpful to welcome us and orient us to our location and lodging - we had a private driver from the airport and then rented a car at our doorstep! super easy and convenient! Local community is friendly and welcoming!
Apartment was clean, neat, and had everything we needed - very secure, although one key for a family of 4 was a bit challenging to work around!! Wifi worked great!~ landscaping was beautiful - there are a few locals who offer beach boot camps, yoga, Zumba and massages on the beach - take advantage of it - they were great!!
We were lucky to visit the local Escuela Playa Grande - the local elementary school - its right on the corner, a quick drive or walk - consider "packing for a purpose" when you go and bring these deserving kids and community some supplies or toys!! (art supplies, books, reusable water bottles, balls, etc!!)
Thanks for a great stay! We will be back!More
