Pavones is a great place with a great atmosphere. Staying at Mira Olas is like staying at the jungle, except that you can walk to one of the world's greatest waves in about three minutes. The cabin is great, clean and has everything you need. Lots of fruit trees around with fruit ready to be eaten. Elisabeth, the owner greeted...

Pavones and Mira Olas were recommended to us by surfers. We were looking for a cool place to surf in Costa Rica, and Pavones suppose to have an impressive left point break that ran the entire length of the village. The surfing in Pavones was indeed very impressive; high waves that you could ride very long and fast. For a...

Whenever in Pavones to surf, I stay at the Mira Olas. The owner, Lili, has a fantastic story to tell, and is an incredibly pleasant innkeeper. Having been a frequent guest, I feel like family. Lili easily accommodated an early arrival, and late check out, allowing my family to get the most of the surf at Pavones. The rooms are...

Getting here is not fun but once you arrive you are in for a treat. This is the jungle and you feel like you are apart of it. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There is a high powered ceiling fan so it is hot. The room comes with a mini fridge, coffee maker and coffee, and a single...

We felt like we were in the jungle, which is amazing, considering it's only a 5 minute walk to 'downtown Pavones' and the surf break. Waves at this time of year are nothing to brag about, but we had them almost to ourselves. November is the end of the rainy season in Pavones and we were about the only tourists....

Mira Olas was my favorite place in Costa Rica. We came to Pavones for the amazing waves, but staying here was another highlight. The cabinas are perfect surf hideouts- set back from the town amidst tropical fruit orchards and blissful silence. The river running through the property was a lovely bonus- as were the hummingbirds, macaws & toucans we saw...

Mira Olas is just a quick walk up the road from the break, but those few feet of elevation get you more of a breeze to cool off with in the evenings, and you're out of the main "town's" noise and activities. Lilli and Steve take meticulous care of the property, and the fruit trees respond with luscious harvests of...

I've stayed at Lili's Mira Olas several times over the years and have never been disappointed! It's close to the surf (either by walk or paddle down the river) yet quietly set at the edge of the jungle. Plenty of monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds and blue morpho butterflies to enjoy and a great variety of fruit to pick and eat.

This was my second trip to Pavones and I was delighted to stay at Mira Olas's Jungle Deluxe cottage. Staying up the hill (versus the Moderna cabinas) was well worth the extra few steps to be closer to the jungle and the daily wildlife show. The main living area is open air while the bedroom and bathroom are enclosed with...

“The jungle deluxe cabin is a good idea because of the kitchen facility's and the living area to hang out”
 of 5 bubbles Fleur1991, 13 Aug 2015 | Read review
“There are two rooms side by side, sort of a duplex type situation, and one 'jungle cabin'. The two rooms side by side would be good for a family, and the jungle cabin would be good for a romantic stay.”

“Jungle Deluxe is great for longer visits or those who prefer to cook their own meals. Modernas great for surfers.”
