Interaction with Guests
We live offsite but are available when guests need us.
Costa Amor lies within minutes of numerous natural attractions and plenty of fun, cultural activities. We can arrange all sorts of tours including ziplining in the jungle canopy, horseback riding, surf lessons, and guided day hikes.
The laid back surf town of Dominical has a beautiful, long jungle backed beach, world famous surf breaks, and town treasures like artisanal shops, a yoga studio, and restaurants serving anything from organic salads to Italian pastries to fresh sushi rolls. Surf shops offer board rentals and lessons, and nearby Dominicalito is a great place for those looking to learn. In Dominical you can stock up on groceries, use the ATM, and listen to some live music while enjoying a cold beer from a beach bar.
Nauyaca and Diamante Waterfalls
Just beyond the property is the road that leads to the stunning Nauyaca Falls. A short hike or a guided horseback ride leads to the two falls, with a crystal clear pool surrounded by rocks for swimming and sunbathing. The famous Diamante Falls, with a series of seven falls accessed through a steep hike through the jungle-covered mountains, is a twenty-minute drive away. The falls can be explored through a guided tour booked through us or entirely on your own.
Two of the most famous national parks in Costa Rica for spotting animals are less than an hour from the property, including the Manuel Antonio National Park known for its gorgeous beaches and large quantities of white face monkeys and the Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita.
At the right time of year you can see whales and dolphins migrating across the Pacific ocean from the beaches that front the Marino Ballena National Park. During low tide a large sandbar emerges that stretches for miles out into the ocean in the shape of a whale’s tail. Behind the national park in Uvita lies the Uvita waterfall, which makes for another great day trip in nature.
The most famous, albeit challenging, place to hike in all of Costa Rica, Mount Chirripo, is less than an hour’s drive from the house where you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific from the summit.
Farmer’s Markets and Groceries
The valleys surrounding Costa Amor are home to small farming communities growing organic tropical fruit and all sorts of vegetables. Just a few minutes from Costa Amor are two fruit stands selling mangos, avocados, fresh young coconuts, and other basics and further up the road are two small grocery stores. Every Tuesday the nearby community of Tinamastes has a wonderful organic Farmer’s Market with homemade baked goods, healthy superfoods, nuts, spices, fruit, fresh greens, local farm eggs, homemade cheese, and handmade arts and crafts. Wednesday through Saturday San Isidro, a small city twenty minutes away, has a huge fruit and vegetable market with a selection of organic stalls selling bulk nuts, dried fruit, organic raw treats, coconut oil, and more. In San Isidro there are several supermarkets and shops for pretty much anything you might need.
