What makes our location ideal is the fact that you're within a short walk to the beautiful beaches and tide pools of Mal Pais; yet a short drive to the downtown where the restaurants and nightlife are located.

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 guests 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 sets for our guests to use.

Our host Diana is an amazingly nice person. Not only was she exceptionally friendly and welcoming, Diana provided wonderful insight and recommendations to great restaurants, the best family beaches and activities.
muy buena experiencia!!! la casa increíble, piscina grande y limpia. las habitaciones muy amplias y con todos los servicios, hemos alquilado los dos apartamentos y son perfectos para grupos grandes, muy cómodos. El barrio es un poco escondido pero perfecto para el descanso y relajación! super recomendado!!
My husband, 13 year old son, and I had a terrific stay at the Pacific Azure. We stayed in the 2 bedroom downstairs apartment. From the moment we booked the trip, Adi was welcoming and helpful. On arrival, Diana was an angel, giving us the tour and helpful info about malpais. We had a perfect stay. As others have posted, the amenities were great, the place clean and cool, the surroundings amazing. Coffee in the morning on the porch watching (and listening to) the wildlife awaken, snorkeling at Plato secreto, a day trip to montezuma, horseback riding, breakfasts at the Bakery, terrific lunches and dinners at several solid restaurants, and late afternoons by the pool, made for an exquisite malpais trip. and of course, what completed the trip for us was starting and closing each day in the comfort and beauty of the pacific azure. Stay here, you won't regret it.
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.

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 seafood delicatessen, all locally caught. Amazing service.Puntarenas

This is the main beach between Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. Has a big restaurant right on the beach. Great for relaxing and excellent for surfing.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
