There is a spacious private driveway with ample parking. The 1 acre garden runs all the way to the river below, where you can cool off in the midday heat and take a hike through the jungle to the waterfalls. Just a 10 minute stroll down the dirt road under the jungle canopy you will find yourself at the beautiful 'Pan Dulce' (Sweet Bread) beach and the longest right hand point break on the peninsula. Continue down the road or along the beach (at low tide) to 'Backwash Bay' and 'Matapalo', other world class surf breaks. This property is located among primary tropical rain forest and at the entrance to the Corcovado National Park. The Osa Peninsula is home to the largest concentration of animal and plant species outside of the Amazon Rainforest, boasting nearly 2 percent of all animal and plant species found around the world. It is listed in National Geographic’s top five naturist destinations. You will most definitely encounter many types of wildlife and experience an intense tropical climate. Although the house is extremely comfortable and very clean, we advise all guests to be prepared for adventure and to become one with nature!More
