Encantada Ocean Cottages is literally a slice of heaven in Costa Rica. The effort they put into making sure the property is as authentic as possible, is evident everywhere you look. This definitely is not the Ritz, and that is what makes it so special....More

A quiet, beautiful setting on a chocolate-colored beach that stretches for miles. The grounds are gorgeous, well groomed. Great pool, rooms, and the free breakfasts are unparalleled! Can't recommend more highly.

January - April is our summer so it's dryer here and we have much less Mosquitos. We don't have many anyway being on the beach but we have less to none during that time.
