#4 of 6 Speciality lodging in Playa Matapalo
This house is right on the beach! Very affordable, clean with great hosts who are knowledgable about the area and things to do! We offer dinners upon reservation. Matapalo beach is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica and one of the most uncrowded. Monkeys all around! If you want peace and privacy for your beach vacation, this is the place. The bedrooms have king beds, and we have extra mattresses if you have more than 2 persons that want to share a room. Very large bedrooms with own private bath and shower. There are a couple of small restaurants in the area. The bus comes about 2 km from the house and is a very short $5 cab ride from where the bus lets off. There is a small grocery in Matapalo and you are only 34 km from Manuel Antonio, the most popular destination in Costa Rica! Then 14 km to the South you have Dominical, a quaint surfing town with many restaurants and nightlife. Great surfing, lots of wildlife. Breakfast consist of fresh fruit.

Playa Matapalo is one of Costa Rica’s best kept secrets. Its spectacular beach stretches some 40+ km and has perfect fine sand the entire length. We were at Dos Palmas over Christmas and the beach was not very busy at all. The 2 cabinas are very private and you get your own private table for breakfast, making this the perfect romantic getaway. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The owner is friendly and helpful and happy to recommend restaurants and activities in the area. Relax and watch the waves roll in and catch the spectacular sunsets every day!

Also it's Christmas time, all beaches we visit was almost empty! We had our own beach. Peter was very helpful with "where to go" suggestions so we had the opportunity to discover the "local attractions" without be in a crowd of tourists. The quality of our room is very well justify the price.

Contacted several times but never responded to rent. Not sure they are still renting. After 3 emails I moved on to another location. Was very polite in my request. We hope to visit this wonderful country again. Hoping that these owners are ok.

We visited matapalo after searching for a quiet out of the way place, to chill out at and access manuel Antonio. After very little research and being advised of this place by somewhere else that was full, we were not disappointed! This area is beautiful! It's isolated and tranquil, you can hear the sea from your room and watch the sunset from the cabinas hammock! The beach is great for surfing and body boarding, if a little strong for swimming. There's also a very cute turtle sanctuary on the beach manned by volunteers. Rachel and Adam are brilliant hosts, chilled out and knowledgeable and our room was very clean. guava bar and happy lobster closeby served some of the best fish we had in two weeks. If you want romantic, chilled out, off the beaten track this is amazing!!
