While Costa Rica is a country unto itself, this location is truly a departure from the usual vacation in every way -- and a welcome one at that. The arrival is unique in its own right, as it takes time and altitude to get there....More

About the neighbourhood
You have the best of both rural, authentic Costa Rica nature, and proximity to cafes, beaches, national parks and tourist towns. Pristine primal jungle and expansive views of multiple mountain ranges surround you at Sunrise Sunset Retreat overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Perched on the coast ridge, you see 100 miles to the Osa Peninsula, and the tallest peaks in Costa Rica, including Mt Chiripu, and Los Quetzales National Park. Listen to the jungle sounds and spot wildlife right from the pool side. Toucans, sloths, and monkeys are just a few of the exotic wildlife in the area.
Getting around
All-wheel drive (4x4) SUV required for this location. Rental cars can be picked up at the airport at SJO, or near the airport in Quepos, or in Dominical (Alamo). SUVs are available at affordable prices from all major agencies.
