Mareas VillasPlaya Hermosa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
A dream escape in Costa Rica awaits at Mareas Villas. Settle in to an unforgettable retreat on 36 acres of rainforest, surrounded by 200 acres of wildlife preserve and natural paradise, all while staying in a stunning luxury villa. Located on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, Mareas Villas are perched on a ridge overlooking Playa Hermosa Beach, and bordering Ballena National Marine Park, also known as the "Whale Tail Reef." The property consists of two four-suite villas, which can be rented entirely as a large group, or as individual suites for smaller parties. Both the Pacifica Guest Villa and Tucano Guest Villa feature exceptional accommodations and living areas, with private gardens, upstairs balconies, and bedroom suites ranging from 700 to over 1,400 square feet. Modern comforts such as air conditioning, wireless internet access, and luxury linens are present, and the delights of the outdoors are integrated inside as ocean breezes sweep through the windows, and views of the forest or ocean are enjoyed from terraces and patios. The resort's main house is the heart of the property, and provides a place to gather and relax as you enjoy the spacious sunken lounge, gourmet kitchen, barbecue patio, and outdoor dining areas. Whatever your vacation style, you can have it all at Mareas Villas.
Start your days with a refreshing dip in the 1,700-square-foot infinity pool, surfaced entirely in iridescent cobalt blue tile. A cascading waterfall flows from the gorgeous whirlpool, and panoramic ocean views make the swimming experience a true sensory pleasure. On site, you can also enjoy hiking trails and birdwatching, and nearby the options for recreation are robust. Stay on land to explore the area's world-renowned ecological wonders. Waterfall rappelling, rainforest canopy tours, bicycling, and horseback riding provide unique and fun perspectives, so tap in to your adventurous side for a memorable experience. The ocean is equally alluring, so arrange for a sea kayaking or sport fishing excursion for a taste of Costa Rica's Pacific. Dive in for fantastic snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing, or paddle your way on a mangrove tour, ocean cave exploration, or river rafting tour. Of course, the option to simply lay back and relax on the beach is always a veritable option. Return to Mareas Villas to prepare a home-cooked meal in your kitchen or barbecue area, and relish in the tropical sunset light with a cocktail or cool beverage. For a piece of paradise and the comforts of home in luxury style, Mareas Villas is an ideal Costa Rica retreat.
