Mal Pais is south of Santa Teresa and is known for its exclusive hotels and restaurants and its quiet, secluded residential character. Just a 10 minute walk to the beach or a 15 minute walk to town where you will find lots of shopping, surf schools, public services & facilities.
Arrival to Mal Pais is via the ferry from Puntarenas to Paquera and then driving on through Cobano. You will need a 4WD vehicle or a quad (locally available) to gain access up the relatively steep and unimproved driveway and the local roads along the coast.

Great hosts..beautiful view...one of the best places I have stayed at on airbnb...rent an atv and a surfboard and forget about everything else
Incredible place, we loved every minute of it. Mariya and Arturo (Harry's friends who manage the property) were extremely welcoming, truly authentic -very grateful for how accommodating they were given we arrived late on a stormy night. The Jungalow has everything you need for a visit to this area.
I would digress with a previous review I read before going regarding the access road, we arrived after a heavy storm and it was very wet and it was not challenging to climb the hill.
the description of the house is correct; its a bungalow in the forest with a nice view. Amazing view to be correct. yet the house was very hard to reach, even with a jeep. the bathrooms were not clean either. the view, the hammock and the friendly host were the positive points.
The reservation was canceled 43 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The "jungalow" is beyond stunning. It's nestled between avocado and coconut trees, the porch overlooking the most gorgeous beach I've ever seen. The hosts are gracious and accommodating. And the surfing is killer
Superb lodge, amazing view and sunset over the rainforest and ocean.
Lots of local wildlife dropped by, capuchin and howler monkeys, personal iguana, cool insects, birds, butterflies even a mini scorpion.
We loved it. Clean, functional, Great patio and hammock and chairs. Only thing we missed was Wifi.
