Excellent lieu de séjour.
Excellent séjour dans cette maison tout à fait agréable et bien équipée. Bien localisée car localité de Paquera pas touristique en soi mais toute proche de lieux remarquables (Curu réserve, plages, îles ....).
Private, large house with accommodations for five. Amenities were exactly as hoped for.
Thank you Donna and Randy for your stay! Please come back and visit the Nicoya Peninsula again sometime!
Wonderful visit to Paquera
We stayed nine days and had a great time. We flew into San Jose and took the convenient ferry at Puntarenas to Paquera. The house is comfortable and clean. With all the appliances (except a toaster) that you need. We just toasted bread in the pan on the stove. The AC in the front room plus ceiling fans all do a great job cooling the interior quickly.
The food stores in town or small markets (pulperias) down the road have everything you need, and we cooked almost all our meals while there. And there is a nice restaurant in the hotel Gianna in town that has very good food.
The bed is comfortable although I would have liked to catch or shoot the roosters in the immediate area - I thought they only crowed in the early am 😊�. But seriously we got used to them.
We ended up visiting four nearby beaches by car while exploring the surrounding area and also drove to Santa Teresa (about 80 min away). In town and all over the peninsula, paved roads are great while the dirt and gravel roads can sometimes jar a filling or two, but you have to expect that. They are constantly grading the roads so improvements are being made. Santa Teresa has a great beach and main drive that deserves a full day alone. The Curu National Wildlife Refuge is wonderful and should not be missed. Got great pictures of Capuchin and Howler monkeys, plus macaws and other animals. And while there you can also reserve a three-hour snorkeling and beach stay on Tortuga island – very nice and highly recommended.
This is a tropical location, so be prepared for the heat and crawling bugs (no mosquitoes), but not to worry. We had no problems at all. This town and immediate location is definitely in a less touristy part of the country and as mentioned by others, do not expect a luxury hotel, but it is safe and has all the comforts you need to have a great vacation.
Mike is a wonderful owner and can provide assistance or detailed information about the property, the area, and he provides all the contact information you need. Moreover, he responds very quickly when texted. Download WhatsApp before you go since this is the preferred method of communicating with Mike and everyone in Costa Rica. Manuel was very helpful and assisted us any way we needed. He met us at the ferry, drove us to the house, and showed us around the home and how to use the various things.
I highly recommend visiting Paquera and staying at this property.
Thank you Bob for your wonderful review of the house and the Nicoya Peninsula. I must thank you again for carrying down a neck traction device to Costa Rica for one of my workers. That was very considerate of you! We hope to see you again sometime soon in Costa Rica!
Kind regards, Mike
Basics in Paquera
The neighbour’s dogs barked throughout the day and night for 3 weeks. The appliances are in need of replacing - the fridge was very noisy. The springs in the mattresses were uncomfortable. The couch has no padding left on the seat.
The neighbourhood was welcoming and friendly. We walked in to town easily before we rented a car for meals and groceries. It was a great location to explore the Nicoya Penninsula, which has much to offer. The owner was always available if we had concerns.
Funny Thomas that you did not complain about the scarlet macaws that come everyday to the almond tree right next to the house...they are very loud. Or the howler monkeys....quite noisy as well. I think we have to be careful not to measure a vacation home in the Costa Rica countyside by the same standards we would expect from a 5 star hotel in north america. Doesn't work very well and isn't really fair.
NICE HOME FOR THE PRICE 3.5 stars.
We stayed a couple weeks at this house and liked it fine. Good fridge, great AC, plenty of fans, clean bedding. The house itself needs a deep cleaning especially the bathroom. Great price and wonderful location for exploring the peninsula. Local man across the road up a few blocks has amazing oxen. Go to Tambor beach and Curu refuge! Both wonderful, highly recommend the snorkeling trip from Curu. lots of hiking. nice grill in back yard, but no utensils. If you are bug phobic don't go....lots of ant, centipedes, spiders and even several scorpions I swept out. Washing machine was fun to use, I don't read Spanish. no manual. Also issues with getting rid of trash, problem everywhere. white tiles are great as you can see bugs so you don't step on them! The house is well appointed, we did most of our meals there. Bed was comfortable and loved the kitchen table..Local stores and bakery will provide what you need, check out the fruit stands, best pineapple, oranges and limes ever! Fish at Tambor for sale, caught by local fishermen.
Thanks again Amy for your stay at our house in Paquera. Sorry you had some bugs in the house but we are on the tropics so it can happen....worse if doors and windows are left open.
Paquera is a small town with lots of good qualities. The house was wonderful.
The house in Paquera was pretty, comfortable and clean. Any thing we needed was addressed quickly by the owner. There is a nice restaurant at the local hotel Gianna that has wonderful food. Curu Reserve is close and a great place to visit
Thanks Lisa for your stay and remember we look forward to seeing back again sometime!
Cette région décontractée du Costa Rica est comme la vie peut avoir été il y a près de cent ans. Pas beaucoup de touristes et une sensation costaricaine très «typique» au rythme de la vie. Les charrettes à bœufs sont encore utilisées régulièrement pour transporter des marchandises et les chevaux ne sont pas rares. Pas beaucoup d'anglais parlé dans la région, ce qui ajoute à l'expérience culturelle. Paquera et la péninsule inférieure de Nicoya n'ont pas encore été trop développées, même si deux des meilleures plages du pays, Santa Teresa et Montezuma, sont ici. La réserve biologique de Curu est à seulement 10 minutes de la maison. De là, faites le trajet de 10 minutes en bateau jusqu'à Isla Tortuga pour la meilleure plongée et plongée en apnée de la péninsule! La plage la plus proche est Playa Organos. C'est un beau tronçon de 2 kilomètres de long avec une rivière de bonne taille à une extrémité qui se jette dans le Pacifique. Un incontournable est la visite de la luminescence biologique du plancton en kayak de nuit! Il se trouve dans la région de Playa Organos et peut être réservé auprès de Bahia Rica Tours. Isla Tortuga peut être vue de Playa Organos avec un œil pointu ou des jumelles. Un peu plus loin sur la côte, les villes touristiques les plus fréquentées de Montezuma et Santa Teresa sont toujours animées.
