This laid back area of Costa Rica is like life may have been almost a hundred years ago. Not many tourists and a very 'typical' Costa Rican feel to the pace of life. Oxcarts are still used regularly to haul goods and horses are not uncommon. Not much English spoken in the area, which adds to the cultural experience. Paquera and the lower Nicoya Peninsula have not yet been overly developed, even though two of the best beaches in the country, Santa Teresa and Montezuma are here. Curu Biological Reserve is just 10 minutes from the house. From there, take the 10 minute boat ride over to Isla Tortuga for the best diving and snorkeling on the peninsula! The closest beach is Playa Organos. It is a beautiful 2 kilometer long stretch with a fair sized river on one end that flows into the pacific. An absolute must is the night kayak plankton bio luminescence tour! It is in the Playa Organos area and can be booked through Bahia Rica Tours. Isla Tortuga can be seen from Playa Organos with a sharp eye or binoculars. A little further down the coast, the busier tourist towns of Montezuma and Santa Teresa are always lively.

About Michael Phelan
I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada but I love this wonderful part of Costa Rica. My daughter, son in law, and my grandson live in the capital San Jose, so Costa Rica is really my second home. Come down, enjoy the house, and this beautiful area and the great people of Costa Rica.
Michael Phelan purchased this house in 2012
Why Michael Phelan chose Paquera
We looked long and hard and finally settled here because of the great blend of nature and close proximity to all of the services in the town.
What makes this house unique
Whether you are walking to the convenience store 100 yards from the house, or driving the winding roads down to the beach, you know you are truly in a different country and not an all inclusive that is identical to every other all inclusive the world over. Its fun to 'explore' and bit. It is also very safe in this area. It is quite quiet and the local people are very friendly.
