About the neighbourhood
For surfers, the surf can be up at any time of the year although the rainy season - August to December - is usually best. Kite-surfing is at its best between December and April. The nearest beach, Pilon, has a great break - usually quiet - and the famous world-class Pavones break is a 20 minute drive away. You can see the lines on the water from Finca Estrella. To boost your spirit and fitness level, yoga classes in Pavones- 20 minutes away - run all year round. Turtles nest on the local beaches, hike past the giant bamboos to our waterfall, take a cooling swim in the refreshing Cuervito river, a lazy boat trip down the Rio Coto from Zancudo or dolphin and whale spotting as you zip across to the Osa Peninsula, to where Corcovado National Park is located, is unforgettable or boogie board at the shallow sandy waters of Zancudo beach. If fishing is your thing then take a trip with one of the local fishermen or go sportfishing from Zancudo or Golfito, making sure to sample the quesadillas at Banana Bay Marina when you get back! If you want to eat it but don't want to catch it yourself then a visit to the fishermen at local Pilon beach, 10 minutes away, is a must. For wildlife, take a walk/ride early in the morning or late afternoon to spot monkeys, or sit on the terrace/balcony following the mournful cry of the toucan at sunrise and sunset. Watch for the giant blue Morpho Azul butterfly flap past, or the myriad of smaller colourful varieties crossing your path. A squawk overhead will be a scarlet macaw, look out for them on the wild almond tree above the pool. Sloths are spotted often, munching away on their favourite leaves. The local bull fiestas at Conte and Naranjo are worth a visit as are the cabalgatas where locals show off their prowess on horseback. Eat churros (stick donuts) and sample local fayre from the buzzing stalls.
How to get there
International flights to San Jose (SJO) from the UK arrive via Mexico City (Air Mexicana), via Madrid (Iberia) or via various US cities (BA/AA, Continental etc). Air Mexicana are offering good prices of less than £500. Expedia are a good place to start when looking for flights. Our rental houses at Finca Estrella are located on the south pacific coast of Costa Rica, a 6 and a half hour drive from San Jose or a 45 minute flight to Golfito followed by an hour drive (bus or taxi available). If you are taking the scenic route and driving from San Jose then try www.renta4x4incostarica.com, www.mapache.com, www.4x4rentacar.com for rental cars, if you are flying then use either www.flysansa.com or www.natureair.com and fly to Golfito. Solid car rental (www.solidcarrental.com - the Osa Peninsula section) are based near the airstrip in Hotel Samoa del Sur in Golfito. After buying groceries and filling up with gas/petrol at Golfito head out of town (don't leave after 5pm as you don't want to do the drive in the dark) and follow signs for Conte/Pavones/Zancudo - the signs are hard to spot so keep your eyes peeled. Once you are over the big new bridge on the Rio Coto the road isn't paved so drive carefully. Turn right at Conte (supermarket/internet/bar) then when the road splits, take the left hand fork to Pavones, after 5-10 minutes you'll see bright yellow Finca Estrella signs - follow these, turning right at the bus stop. If you reach Escuela de Cuervito (Cuervito School) then you have gone too far. Finca Estrella, our property, starts 1.5km up that road. You'll see Casa del Sol (Sun House) on the left hand side first, followed by Casa Roja (Red House) then finally Casa Amarilla (Yellow House) on the right hand side. Casa Madera (Wooden House) isn't visible from the road, neither is the pool.
