There is a large private pool next to a great charcoal barbeque under a large lanai where you can prepare what you picked up at the fish market. Puntarenas is known to have the most beautiful sunsets in Costa Rica: Enjoy. You will sleep well listening to the waves break, wake up rested in the morning, brew great Costa Rican coffee and walk out on the beach to watch the fishing boats. Now that is a good start to any day! There is good surfing down the beach: “Boca Barranca” is a long break that is a stop on the national surf tour. There are several convenience stores, restaurants and ATM machines within walking distance. There is a four-star hotel with spa down the the beach and you can book trips with tour operators on our street. The house is located less than one and a half hour drive from San Jose Airport, (SJO). The area is the nearest spot on the coast from the capital. It can also easily be accessed from Liberia Airport. The Google Earth coordinates are 9° 58? 25.37? N 84° 44? 58.65? W.
