I look forward to welcoming you to Las Catalinas, a beautiful, lively town situated on a prime tropical beach, surrounded by pristine nature. Located in the center of the gold coast area of Guancaste within close proximity to the pristine Zapotal peninsula, this is a special place where it is easy to slow down, and connect with others and with nature. You will love the luxury vacation home that Time & Place has reserved for you in our great, little beach town.
On one side, our town is enveloped by over 1,000 acres of spectacular tropical dry forest hills and valleys with extensive hiking, biking, and horseback trails. On the other side is the Pacific Ocean where we have two of the finest beaches in all of Costa Rica with great swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, boogie boarding, and snorkeling.
Thrill-seekers will love mountain biking in the vast network of trails around Las Catalinas, more than six miles of unspoiled wide single-track loop. For a more relaxed pace, try the McHenry Peak trail for a dramatic hike with stunning views in all directions.
If you are seeking relaxation on the beach, you will love Playa Dana, our tranquil beach with palm trees swaying in the wind. Lola, our quaint restaurant will make sure a supply of the fresh ceviche and cold Imperial beer keep you happy. For a change of pace, head south to the tranquil towns of Potrero and Flamingo, where youll also find some more delightful restaurants.
If you want to try your luck with the fish, you can test yourselves with some of the best deep-sea fishing in the country. If you would rather just admire the fish, scuba dive and explore the scintillating underwater world at Islas Santa Catalinas.
If you are a surfer, youll be stoked to know that a string of world-famous surfing spots exists literally on your doorstep. Plan to visit Playas Ventana, Grande and Avellana, plus the lively surf town of Tamarindo.
Las Catalinas, and your Time & Place luxury vacation home were designed for ultimate relaxation with family and friends. We look forward to sharing it with you. Pura Vida!
