We love San Juanillo's location for both the privacy, and proximity to so many wonderful things in our area. It is located in one of the few pacific beach areas with many rivers and unpaved roads. 7 miles to the south (20 minute drive) is Nosara, Playa Guiones, and Playa Pelada. There are many activities and amenities there to choose from, like world class surfing at Guiones, canopy tours, river and sea kayaking, or even a class at the well known Yoga Institute of Nosara. Just to the south, between us and Nosara is the 2nd largest turtle preserve in Latin America called Ostional. Over 500,000 Olive Ridley turtles come to spawn there between the months of August and March with the major migration happening in the rainy season months between October and January. The area around San Juanillo itself has many beautiful beaches surrounding it, and is home to a local population of around 300 people. A small fishing village, it has a local grocery, a couple of small bars and restaurants, but also has a very laid back feel to it unlike the surf town of Nosara. Many of the locals in Nosara actually like to come up to San Juanillo for the day to enjoy its secluded beaches. Still, there are several incredible places to eat, with access to activities like yoga, fishing, diving, sea kayaking, and horseback riding to name just a few. To the north, there is another town called Marbella that has an incredible beach with hardly any visitors as well as a surf break in front of the Tiki bar that not many even know about! It makes for a great afternoon for sure. These are just a few things we enjoy while we are staying up at our home. Come check it out, and tell us what you think.
Interaction with Guests
Our property manager Steven has lived in San Juanillo for many years. He can book anything from Canopy tours and quads, to a private chef, or dinner reservations. Whatever you need, he is an expert at procuring.
Our neighborhood has an abundant amount of biodiversity. There are many birds, howler monkeys, butterflies, and various different types of mammals to see. We have some of the nicest mountain and ocean views in the area so if you love nature this a great place to be!
Renting a car is the best option for getting around. We do have a local bus that runs daily to Santa Cruz and there you can transfer to other cities. A 4x4 is recommended during the months of August - December. Also, renting a quad from the Nosara area is a nice option for those of you who enjoy ATV's.
