Pura vida!
A "just perfect" spot to enjoy the beach, the mountains and so much of what Costa Rica offers. Casa Garrobo was a real find for us, a romantic getaway in a gorgeous setting, our own private resort. The beaches, the food, the people were all enjoyable. Our horseback ride on the beach near Uvita was a highlight, as was the swim in the pool at the base of Nauyaca Waterfall, just a few km up the highway. The hike to the falls was not too much and they are a breathtaking sight. We will be back with the family soon!

About the neighbourhood
Lagunas is a residential community sitting on a mountainside peninsula just outside Dominical. There is always a cool breeze off the ocean and it is in the middle of a major wildlife corridor through the area. It is both secluded and easily accessible, and lets you enjoy both the ocean and the jungle. Take a look at our Facebook page THE CASA GARROBO for lots of info about where you are and what you can do.
Getting around
For an excellent meal at a great price, try Ricardo2 (Ricardo dos), which is on the road back to Dominical , where the Allegro AIrplane is, you cannot miss it. The Soda Baru has cold beer, sodas, and good fast food if and when they are open. In Dominical, Mama Toucans has an expanded menu of organic food, an ATM, and baked goods. The Sushi at Sushi Dominical is outstanding and priced right. We think BM Supermercado in Uvita is the best place to get a full complement of groceries and produce. We urge you to get an enhanced wifi package on your phone when you are in CR, well worth the few dollars to have internet everywhere. For hiking, check out Alltrails online and download any trip/maps before you leave the house.
Access
Car required
How to get there
Right before you reach Dominical and just north of the Baru river, turn onto Highway 243 off the coastal Highway 34, go 3.4 kilometers to the turn up (left) onto the Lagunas main road. It is the last turn before the one lane bridge and just past Soda Baru. The road is dirt and marked by a green SOLO 4x4 sign as you start up. From this point go 2.4 kilometers to the upper Ridge road turn at the Community Bulletin Board and the Corredo Biologico sign, bearing left onto the road. From here our entrance gate with the CASA GARROBO bright green sign mounted on the coral colored gate column is approximately 6/10 of a km on the left at a dip in the downhill descent. Enter the gate code and follow the drive to the left and up to the house!
