Santa Teresa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Additional Location Information
Villa Cocobolo is located within a 7.5 acre property named, Senderos de Paz, or Paths of Peace. We are 55 meters above sea level and just 175 meters directly to the mid-tide line. One can walk to the beach from the road that runs in front of the property - it is a 250 meter walk downhill. In only the 1/2 acre surrounding Villa Cocobolo there a are more than 30 different trees (hardwoods and fruit). For this reason, along with the gardens and hundreds of meters of walking trails, our guests can find all sorts of wildlife.
Below the property on the old beach road, there is a small waterfall that runs from our spring. On the same road there are also a series of tide pools that run along the road between Hermosa Beach and Manzanillo Beach. On this stretch of beach, you will probably see more animals than people on any given day. Manzanillo Beach (north) is protected by a rock reef, so the waves are smaller, but the beach itself has waves for surfing, spots for fishing and lots of space for relaxing with very few people. After Manzanillo Beach there is a stretch of 4km with less than a handful of homes ending at the Bongo River where one can find an estuary with lots of migrating birds and sometimes the occasional crocodile.
To the south is Hermosa Beach which has great waves for beginners to experts and lots of space to relax with friends, couples or family.
In the town of Manzanillo (500 meters to 1km), there is a beach restaurant (Bar Restaurant Artadecer Dorado), a nice pizzeria (Manny's), and (Dayka), a restaurant with mountain views, a pool, and very reasonably priced food. In Hermosa, there is an astounding sushi restaurant, Koji's.
Nearby in Montezuma, there is a fun hike to the waterfall that is well worth the trip, as well as a fantastic canopy tour. Montezuma also has shopping and lots of beaches (little nooks and crannies) to explore and find some privacy. Santa Teresa, just 10 minutes south, has two banks, shopping, all types of restaurants with food from all around the world, and basically anything and everything you need or don't need.
