El Nido de Aguila, in English aerie, are three vacation rental homes in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. The name refers to the prominent location of the houses on top of a hill affording panoramic views of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa, with spectacular sunsets over the ocean.
The three houses are spread out on the property and share a swimming pool and large rancho. In front of the rancho is the panorama deck with lounge chairs - a true aerie, as you will see.
The rancho is the place for socializing during the day or at night, when you can grill fresh fish or meat on the wood BBQ. There is a wet bar, and a sound system to play your music.
At the side of the rancho is the swimming pool with another sun deck. El Nido de Aguila is a perfect vacation spot for families with kids, couples, or groups of friends.

This place is a hidden gem in a beautiful Mal Pais: amazing view of the ocean and tropical forest from the top, great location (tip: rent an ATV to get there instead of driving in your 4WD), very accommodating host who provided us with a bunch of tips on where/when/what as well as snorkeling gear, great pool and outdoor seating area with the kitchen situated so you enjoy the most beautiful sunset you've ever seen while you are eating, nice villas with the kitchen, AC and comfy beds.
I would suggest renting ATV once you get to Mal Pais - this is the best type of transportation for the local roads.
It was 4 of us and we truly enjoyed our stay thanks to Jorg - the manager - and his friendly pets (dog, cat and of course the monkeys :-))
I will definitely be back. Thank you for such a great time.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
