Interaction with Guests
I'm in close correspondence with all our guests during their inquiry, throughout their stay and after their checkout. I answer questions within a few hours at all times.
Additionally our bilingual concierge Diana, is there to greet and be of assistance to our guest during their stay. Diana and I maintain close communication and pay close attention to guest requests and feedback.
Our neighborhood is essentially the little town of Mal Pais. Mal Pais practically hugs the coastline so you can just take a walk from the house to town explore the gorgeous coastline. On low tide you will find some amazing tide pools.
We have a convenience store that is a short walk from the house called "Super Chicos". Additional places you can walk to is "Mary's Restaurant", a great dinner spot and local favorite with freshly caught local seafood specials, wood fired pizza and it has a couple pool tables. It has an amazing atmosphere.
Next to Super Chicos is the "Freedom Riding" surf shop which also offers stand up paddle boarding tours right off the Mal Pais reefs.
One of the nicest things about our neighborhood is the Mal Pais Fishery, which is just down the road. You can head over there and buy some fresh fish right off the line. They'll filet it for you right on the spot : )
We recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to enjoy more of the area. We can suggest rental car agencies which have very competitive prices, just message us. Another option is to rent ATVs. We can arrange the delivery of ATVs to the house ahead of time as well. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs.
Other Things to Note
We highly recommend our guests to explore Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma. You can venture on your own but if you prefer I do have a local private guide (born and raised in Mal Pais) and close friend of mine that I recommend to all our guests. He does some extraordinary tours in the area.
If you are traveling with children we'd like to mention that our concierge Diana is great with kids. She is a local school teacher and she runs a children camp. If you need babysitting or nanny service during your stay just lets us know ahead of time.
Ask our concierge Diana for snorkeling gear, we have a couple of brand new sets.

Our stay at Adi's house was amazing! Our flights and travel to Costa Rica was extremely hectic so it was pure bliss to walk into such a clean nice house and begin our relaxing vacation. In between lazing around the pool and napping in the hammocks we walked down to the Swiss beach on Adi's recommendation and did some snorkeling. He was so helpful with answers to our questions and suggestions for anything we wanted to do. His friend Miguel who ran adventure tours gave some of our group surf lessons as well and he was a great teacher! We even went to lunch with him afterwords because we enjoyed his company so much! All in all our vacation was rescued once we arrived due to Adi's extreme helpfulness, his clean and relaxing property and the people he suggested to show us around! We're already planning our trip back! Thanks Adi!
I can't imagine any type of person who wouldn't enjoy their time here. An excellent house, spotlessly clean and well kept in an awesome quiet location. You will be in luxury but still in the relaxed vibe that is Malpais. Great Host, great property - this place will make your holiday.
One of the best vacations we have had! Adi's house is amazing and big. Private yet safe. The pool was a big hit with our kids. We had it all to ourselves too! The location is great with easy access to beaches, great food (Mary's), fishing, and other activities. Adi is a very considerate host. He checked on us multiple times to ensure that everything was going well. Diana, Adi's local manager, was also great and took care of all of our needs.
Pacific azure mal pais
This was our first time using air bnb so we weren't sure what all to expect other than the reviews people had for pacific azure and the fact that it was in the location we wanted to be. The owners were not on site but ( but were in contact with me often) the host Diana is onsite in a home just down the lane and she was really great to get us set up in the house and tell us about the area. It really was walk in put your stuff down and start playing. The home was fantastic. Clean, tons of natural light with lots of cover decks. Perfect for 4 people. We stayed on the main floor. The upper floor is another rentable unit. But no one was there while we were there. There isn't much of a family room ( but enough for 4-5 people to lounge in the couch and window seat and chat) no dining room. But there was a large patio dining set just off the kitchen. So It didn't matter, we spent anytime we weren't playing lounging at the patio table or in the hammocks. The pool was large and refreshing the host kept it clean and ready for us. I honestly feel like between the ocean and the pool we barely left the water. The property is big with lots of room around it. We watched iguanas and birds in the trees. And had howler monkeys waking us up in the am. It was fantastic. The property has a tour guide named Miguel that they recommend. He came by to check in on us so we set up times to go four wheeling (these were delivered to the property for us)
Visited Montezuma water falls. Took a surfing refresher class. He was not pushy to do anything with him. Just accommodating to what we wanted. We then spent the rest of the time touring the area. Mary's restaurant was amazing and just down the road. But honestly. All the food at every place was great!! Surprisingly great!! Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa are literally minutes away in the car. It's a dirt road, but that added to the nostalgia of the area. The directions to the home are spot on, easy to find (we arrived at 8pm in the dark). Gps coordinates also worked perfect. We would come back here to stay again.
We were welcomed at our arrival by the host's agent, who lives next door and was very polite, helpful, and thorough in her briefing. The property met or exceeded our expectations in being comfortable and luxurious. Especially liked having a private pool for relaxing. The neighborhood is rural Central American: friendly locals, modest houses on considerable land with some agriculture, easy walk to multiple uncrowded beaches. Many small shops and restaurants 3 km away in Mal Pais and many more at short intervals up the road. The ocean is rough with some calm areas at low tide, so a good combination of surfing and snorkeling. Tourists tend to be young Americans and European and expat community likewise. There are no big resorts or developments. May have to stand in line at ATMs (which often run out of money) or pay surcharge to use plastic (if they'll take it). Roads rough and dusty. Beaches are incredibly clean! All-in-all, one of our best vacations ever.
Thank you John, I appreciate the descriptive positive review. I'm so glad you guys had a good time and enjoyed the property, the Mal Pais beaches and it's over all laid-back style. It's a good point you make with the ATMs when the town is busy they sometimes do run out of money. I will add that information to our listing profile and suggest to future guests to make an extra withdrawal in San Jose or Liberia prior to heading down here (during those peak season months). Thanks again for the kind words and the great feedback.
Keep warm up there in Alaska : )
This was a beautiful, comfortable house in Mal Pais! We had terrible travel delays (thanks to snow) getting out to Costa Rica, but the hosts were extremely accommodating and helpful making our stay smooth. The pool on the property is amazing, as were the beaches that were within walking distance. Be sure to ask the host Diana for tips on which beaches to go to, as well as directions for how to get there. The entrances to Mal Pais beaches are subtle, so it's important to have that insider information. This was a highlight of our Costa Rican honeymoon!
Thank you so much Kacie for the kinds words and staying with us. It was a pleasure hosting you guys. I'm glad you enjoyed the property and Mal Pais. We take our guests feedback seriously, thank you for your tips on improving our guests experience! : )
We received a nice welcoming email from Adi and Diana was greeting us at our arrival and showed us around the house and its amenities. The house and the surroundings of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa (and a trip to Montezuma) were the most beautiful part of our trip in Costa Rica. We woke up early some days from the sounds of howler monkeys that we then saw in the trees around the house, which to us was very special! Diana and her family were very friendly and helped us with little problems we had, such as Wifi that was not functional for a little while. We enjoyed the pool, the bbq and all the comfort of the house and its beautiful surroundings. A great way to start our holiday and enjoy Costa Rica!

About the Host, Pacific Azure
Mal Pais and Santa Teresa have long been under the radar of the Costa Rican traveler. Discover this beautiful part of the planet on your next vacation to Costa Rica. You'll feel right at home at our stylish vacation rentals while the relaxing rustic environment will most definitely let you unwind.
I enjoy watching people fall in love with Mal Pais, the locals and the laid back lifestyle. Funny how our guests are always tempted to extend their vacation.
My name is Adi and I've lived for over 20 years in Costa Rica, which is about half of my life. My family and some of my most amazing friends live just around the corner.
It's simple, start your day with a good cup of Costa Rican coffee... surf, explore and relax with your family and friends. It's all right here! What else does one need. : )
This is a great beach front restaurant we recommend to all our guests. They serve great local Costa Rican dishes and some fresh local seafood. The location is just beautiful.Calle Vista de Olas Puntarenas
Excellent Sports Bar Cafe, owned operated by three local brothers from Mal Pais. Very friendly, excellent atmosphere, great food and cocktails.160 Puntarenas
This is a longer drive, but if you want to go exploring a bit, check this spot out. Like a 30 minute drive but the location is gorgeous and the drive to get there is equally beautiful. Local Dishes.Puntarenas
