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 bike to rent also.

If you want to come here to take advantage of the great surfing, its best to leave your board at home and just rent a good one from one of the many surf shops locally. Airlines nowadays charge a fortune to take surfboards and board rental is cheap here.

Amazing house with almost a private beach in front. The house is bigger and better than the photos. Great vibe and energy! Surrounding with the beach and the forest. Melba, the housekeeper, cleans everyday and she is really helpfull. For us the location was perfect, because we can have the beach for ourselves and at the sametime just 5 minutes away from the market, restaurants etc. Hope to come back soon!

I can't sing enough praises for Yan and our stay at the March House. Yan is a generous host, who went out of his way to make our stay everything we wanted it to be. He helped us with our vacation preparations; advising us on travel options, arranging for a rental car to be delivered to the airport, and providing clear and detailed directions to not only the house, but all of our destinations in the Mal Pais area. He prearranged several of our activities and always placed us in the hands of friendly & honest people. He had wonderful recommendations for places to eat & arranged for an amazing chef to come to the house & cook for us several times. He acted as travel agent, tour guide, gracious host & friend. He truly went out of his way to make our experience extraordinary. The house itself is beautiful & very comfortable & Yan's housekeepers are delightful to be around. They took excellent care of us. It felt like staying in a friend's home, the level of comfort, security & convenience far exceeded any vacation rental experience we've ever had. Wonderful property, extraordinary host. Thank you Yan!

Yan and his beautiful March house are simply incredible. Melba and Candy couldn't be more sweet and are very attentive. Waking up and looking through the large open shutters past the well manicured lawns while saying "hello" to the no less than 50 monkeys in the trees and staring out to your own private beautiful beach is literally incredible. We went to Costa Rica for our first time for a friend's 50th birthday; a couple of close friends from Australia, the States, my wife and 4 year old boy came a long and we ALL had the experience of a lifetime. So much fun and things to do... And the peacefulness of teaming nature. Yan, I commend you on being such an excellent host, paying close attention to detail being available for our every wish. (thanks again for the jump start! Little Dennis just adores you and wants to know where to send his resume in case you need a "helper". This was such an important and amazing vacation for all of us. We thank you Yan and hope to be invited back to again! Much appreciation and happy long life... Cheers!

Yan is an absolutely incredible host. Not only is he quick to respond to all inquiries, but he also provided excellent suggestions for activities to make the most of our trip. He was very generous with his time in showing us around the property and even taking us on a tour of the local area! He truly cares about his guest's experience and it really does make the visit to Mal Pais all the more enjoyable.

Yan is simply an incredible host of a really magnificent World Class property! Yan's communication was stellar from the onset but in its timeliness and delivery of all pertinent details - asked or not. While 3 of us stayed in the home, it can easily sleep the 8 people advertised by Yan. The property sits on a quasi-private beach as it is a public beach that appears seldom used by the public. The house has everything anyone would need from BBQ to cooking utensils to hammocks. Yan also has some excellent staff who work for him - the excellent housekeeper, the gentleman who keeps security and the grounds people. This was far and out my favorite AirBnB experience. Yan is the man. I hope to visit again some day soon!

It’s a very nice villa at a wonderfull beach front. The villa is very roomy, airy, light and by the many folding doors very well integrated with the beautiful garden. The garden is big, green, with beautiful old palms and trees. Every afternoon a group Capuciner Monkeys visit these trees, its nice to watch these monkeys and they like te watch u too. The house-keeping is perfect. And every night there is a guard at site so you can sleep with open windows. Malpais during raining seasons is perfect to avoid the crowded tourist places. Al activities and a beautiful nature reserve are close by and also a very nice restaurant (Mary’s Farm). Very special is the beautiful beach, few people, many palms. Yan is most friendly, takes good cars and is willing to organise all your activities.

Leaving the cut and thrust of working in the stock market in The City of London in 2004 I decided to embark on building this beautiful beach house in Mal Pais, Costa Rica, The March House.
The change of rhythm was the first and most soothing part to affect my senses after all the fast past and stressful existence in London.
The sound of the crashing waves, beautiful bird calls and listening to the families of Howler and White Face monkeys calling out to each other. Mango trees packed with fruit, coconut water almost on tap...this is about feeling part of nature and the environment.
But we all like our creature comforts, so I made sure that The March House takes care of that too. And just because you are close to the jungle you don't have to worry about a lack of local restaurants with cuisine from all over the world.Its catered for here.
So, for me there is a balance now, much more than I ever had in my Big City lifestyle in my last life! I believe that everyone has a chance to experience this even if its just for a few days or a few weeks.
And here, in this beautiful place in Mal Pais, you have it!
