Villa in Herradura
Casa Vista Paraiso
Make monkeys, sloths and toucans your closest neighbors at Casa Vista Paraiso. Nestled into the lush forest like a house in a fairy tale, this luxury Costa Rica vacation rental is the ultimate private retreat. But that doesn’t mean it’s isolated—it’s on the grounds of the Los Sueños Resort, so the fairways, beach club, marina and more are just a short golf-cart ride away from your haven. This secluded villa opens to a spacious terrace with a sunny row of loungers, pool and hot tub, all with views of the jungle so you can listen to the birds call or spot colorful dragonflies and butterflies while relaxing. A covered outdoor kitchen has a sitting area where you can serve refreshments from the bar while waiting for the barbecue to heat up, and al-fresco dining for eight. For indoor entertaining, there’s a wine fridge, wet bar and sound system. One of the most spectacular homes on the resort, Casa Vista Paraiso takes its inspiration—and many of its materials—from grand Italian estates. The nearly 9,000 square feet of custom-designed living space boast gorgeous marble floors, leather sofas, wrought-iron chandeliers and a comfortable mix of wood and wicker furniture. The living room, formal dining room and fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar wrap around the terrace and open to it through several sets of glass doors. Each of the villa’s five bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, making the property a wonderful alternative to a resort for a family or group of friends traveling together. There are four bedrooms with king beds, including two master suites with balconies, and one with two queen beds. Your holiday includes access to the shared beach club, restaurants, bars and marina at Los Sueños Resort, as well as the golf course upon request. Nearby sights include Playa Herradura, where you can book a fishing expedition or surf lesson, and Playa Jaco, also home to great waves and plenty of scarlet macaws. Ask resort staff about activities like waterfall tours, ATV rides, ziplining and stand-up paddleboarding, which are popular with everyone from couples on honeymoon to families to retirees.

Experience unique tropical rainforest vacations
With nearly half a million species on record, Costa Rica plays host to approximately 5% of the Earth’s biodiversity! On the forefront of sustainable tourism, the country allows you to experience nature like never before. Discover untouched rainforests teeming with wildlife on a villa getaway in the lush Costa Rican jungle. Plan your trip during the “green season” (or rainy season) when rivers swell up and the rainforest comes alive to fully experience the thrills and beauty of Costa Rica. From May to mid-December, you can expect the mornings to be bright and sunny, followed by an hour or two of rain in the afternoon, if it rains at all. So reserve your mornings and early afternoons for outdoor adventures, and take advantage of the afternoon showers to relax in a hammock and enjoy a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee.

The Papagayo peninsula is also home to a private 18-hole signature designed Arnold Palmer golf course, offering all golf enthusiasts the opportunity to keep their game on point in between beach time and jungle adventures!
