Esterillos Oeste-Muy Suave
My wife and I booked a week at Apartamentos Iguanas. The unit was very clean and well stocked. We bought breakfast stuff and cooked a little bit mostly for breakfast. The pool is very nice and there is a short walk to the uncrowded beach. The waves varied, but there were surfers out everyday. The location is central to the Southern Costa Rica coast. James recommended one the best restaurants I've ever eaten at and its right there in Esterillos. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the bed is a little hard and the couch and chairs are not very comfortable. James and his mom were great and were very accommodating. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to more visits.
Beautiful clean property with ocean view.
We enjoyed our stay. The property is clean and well kept. Marga and James are amazing hosts; they are very helpful and discreet. From our balcony we could see and hear the ocean. Many birds and iguanas to be seen. The air conditioner in our bedroom broke during our stay and Marga had it replaced right away.
Nature at it best
Wonderful spot to enjoy nature with iguanas and scarlett macaws putting on a daily show. Beautiful beach view , nice pool and the owners could not be helpful.
What a special place! The setting is amazing. The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained with a sparkling clean inviting pool as its centerpiece. The views are incredible and only a short walk to an exceptional beach. the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. But this part of CR is hot. The apartments are advertised as air conditioned. This is not entirely true. There is an AC unit in the bedroom and its use is discouraged. The apartment is quite dimly lit which makes it somewhat difficult to do much indoors after dark.
Had a great week in Esterillos Oeste
Beautiful ocean view from apartment and a quick walk to the beach. We enjoyed relaxing on the property and playing in the waves. This would be a good place for a family get together.
Esterillos Oeste is a very unique place. The beach goes from sand to lava flows out to a point called 'Punta Judas'. There you can walk along the beach and explore baby turtles hatching in a protected turtle reserve. If you look up at the trees in the jungle you will see Monkey's, Macaws, Sloth's, and a slew of other wildlife.
Here are few things you might be interested in doing when you get down here.
Most renters spend a day in Manual Antonio Nacional Park. The beach is really beautiful with white sand. It costs money to enter the park and you have a little walk till you reach the beach. You can also get a tour guide to see the animals. There is a nice restaurant there called El Avion with an airplane on it. It has an amazing view. You should see the airplane on the right side as your driving towards the park.
There nice place to eat around here in Esterillos Oeste called Los Alamandros. It is really popular serving Caribbean style food.
