About the neighbourhood
The property is located in the charming village of Mal Pais on the Nicoya Penisular of Costa Rica, fronting the Pacific Ocean. Mal Pais is a quiet, safe, close knit neighborhood just minutes away by car from the bustle of Santa Teresa if you want it. The energy here is quiet and relaxing for you to do just that, relax if you want to in this amazing home and property. Things to do... Some ideas: Fishing trips either in shore on a panga (local boat used for fishing), trolling for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper (great fun) or on a deep sea fishing vessel for Marlin and Sailfish. On both of these options you will pretty much be guaranteed sighting Humpback Whales, dolphins, Manta Rays, Olive Ridley turtles etc. A real bonus! Surf lessons with a certified sur...
Getting around
Getting around... Usually the preferred and most practical way is by rental car. This stretch of coastline with many things to do and see stretches for around 15km, so exploring by car is the best option. In town its easy to rent an ATV quad for anything from hours to days too. ATVs are great to explore up in the hills and mountains where its cowboy and cattle country There are push bikes to rent also.
