Our family friendly casita Los Tucanes, surrounded by plants and birds, sleeps 6. 10 minutes to Los Suenos, Jaco, or ocean. A zip line is up the road and Manuel Antonio an hour away. Whether you seek relaxation or adventure, you will find it here.

The Space

Our two bedroom casita in Costa Rica can sleep 6 and is 1 1/2 hours from the airport in San Jose, 10 minutes from Jaco (great surfing and beaches), 5 minutes from Los Suenos marina and golf course, and 1 hour from the beautiful national park Manuel Antonio and 30 minutes to Carrera National Park, a fabulous spot for birding. A zip line is just up the road from us. In the town of Herradura are restaurants with inexpensive, typical Costa Rican food. It is five minutes to the main highway where there is a brand new shopping center with an American type grocery store. In nearby Jaco there is a farmer's market weekly.

Buses are how most Costa Ricans travel. It would be possible to use buses, but you'd have to walk to the stop on the main highway, which is a ways, as our casita is outside of town, dead ending in the jungle. We rent cars when we stay in Costa Rica.

Our casita is one in a small development of 13 homes outside the charming, friendly town of Herradura. There is a small SHARED pool available for use and 24/7 security. NOW we have a cement table and benches and a charcoal bbq for your use. We have seen toucans, macaws, hummingbirds, sloth, and more on the property. We can connect you with the best birder in Costa Rica, if birding is your thing. We can point you to $5 Costa Rican typical meals or delicious international cuisine, in Los Suenos and elsewhere. Beautiful setting. Pura vida.

About
I'm a mother, a wife, a nature lover, and a children's book author. I enjoy traveling for business and pleasure. As an author, I visit many schools each year, sharing my knowledge of writing and books. My husband and I love Costa Rica. We've been traveling there for 10 years. Now we have a lovely casita where we enjoy relaxing and playing, but we aren't there all year long. So, we want to share it with others who love to find new and wonderful places to explore.
