Sunset at Costa Blanca Gulf of Papagayo Costa Rica

Gulf of Papagayo sunset from Costa Blanca

Gulf of Papagayo sunset from Costa Blanca

Friends told us to watch the sunset at Costa Blanca, a hotel overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo in Costa Rica, and to have dinner in their excellent restaurant. Not fans of night driving, it really was an easy drive from our hotel on Playa Hermosa. Several couples were already there, some with cameras, some engrossed in each other. There was a wide viewing area outside the huge tiki hut that held the restaurant. It was one gorgeous sunset shot after another, and we watched a few sailboats drift by in the dusk. The food was excellent – just mouthwatering – and the service was friendly. Another evening of Pura Vida in Costa Rica.

Share Costa Rica with nature

Monkey finds Costa Rica a land of plenty

Monkey finds Costa Rica a land of plenty

Costa Rica has over 100 types of mammals and over 800 species of birds. 25% of the entire country is conversation area and protected territories.

Tami particularly likes the monkeys there. You often don’t see them (it took Tami 3 trips and a dedicated search with a pro to find a few) but you frequently hear them. They like to sleep during the day and start coming out about 5 p.m.

When you read the flyers on Costa Rica real estate, you’ll often find mentioned the animal and bird sounds you’ll hear, and sightings you may see daily. You’ll also want to check out possible environmental restrictions if you’re buying a lot and planning to build – some trees are protected, for example. Just one more reason it’s wise to use a Costa Rica real estate professional. Call the Simms Team for assistance in finding the right one.

Horseback riding on the beach in Costa Rica

Horseback riding on the beach in Costa Rica

One of the things that Tami most enjoys in Costa Rica is horseback riding – not in a ring or on a trail, but through the fields, up the hills, and most of all – along the beach. Costa Rica has a long history of caballeros and vaqueros and there are lots of equestrian options throughout Costa Rica. The community you choose for your condo or house purchase may have its own stable facilities, like del Pacifico in Esterillos Este, or you may be content to have stables outside the property but within a 15 minute drive.

Fishing in Costa Rica – a client's perspective

Catching a sailfish in Costa Rica

Catching a sailfish in Costa Rica

This morning one of our clients stopped in to our office, and we started talking about Costa Rica. Robin loved the two vacations she spent in Costa Rica at Crocodile Bay Resort at Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula on the southwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Here’s their story of great sport fishing in Costa Rica.

They caught sailfish, mahi mahi, blue marlin, roosters, snapper, jack crevelle and king mackerel. Perhaps equally exciting was seeing a Humpback Whale that did a full breach right beside them.

There are many locations along the Pacific Coast in Costa Rica where there is great sports fishing.

If you’d like to buy a vacation home in Costa Rica to enjoy sports fishing on a regular basis, contact The Simms Team.
