We traveled to Costa Rica and stayed in Santa Teresa at one of the Mariposa Vacation Homes, Casa Monarca from. 5/26-6/5. This was a perfect home for our family of 5. The house was spacious, inside and out, comfortable, clean, and safe. The walk to...More
Travel Dates: April 2017 & June 2017
This most recent trip was not our first time at Mariposa, our first trip was earlier this year in April and we had such an amazing experience we came back for a second visit, so we had the...More
Our family stayed at Casa Monarca with two other families for a week in April this year. The location is fantastic because it's oceanfront (although no ocean view from Monarca), there's a good surf break straight out, and there is a good market in walking...More
