What a place! The house is new, beautifully designed and built; complete with lush gardens and gorgeous outdoor spaces. We loved swimming in the pool, eating our meals at the outside table, and lounging in the hammocks. Having use of the golf carts was wonderful…we explored all over Hacienda Pinilla. We toured the beautiful beaches, lounged at the Beach Club,...

Not only do Steph and Jorge make you feel at home and comfortable, but all the things you dream about a home are at Pure Vida House: Golf and tennis around the corner, a world-class beach very near, great excursions to the turtle charge, exotic creatures, funny monkeys, horse riding on the beach, great zip lines and more. You can...

About the neighbourhood
The Resort

Hacienda Pinilla is Costa Rica's premier beach resort community. It offers all of the luxury and amenities you want, while keeping the landscape and atmosphere true to Costa Rica's Guanacaste region. 

You have access to the Beach Club(free with a stay at our villa), golf course, tennis courts, 7 restaurants, 3 different beaches, miles of mountain biking trails, 2 spas, gym, equestrian center, chapel, mini market and more, all within Hacienda Pinilla’s gated 4,600 acres.

And just outside the resort is Tamarindo, the famous surf beach town, as well as all other Costa Rican nature and adventure activities!
Getting around
We have guests who don't rent a car for their stay, and instead rent golf carts to get around the resort (a great way to see wildlife, we have two available for rent!), including the 3 beaches, Beach Club, golf course and 12 bars and restaurants. They spend a lot of their stay here, inside Pinilla, and are able to take excursions when they'd like, and are picked up and dropped off at the villa as part of the tour.

Others prefer the freedom and adventure of renting their own car for getting around the area, and to and from the airport. We are happy to help arrange car rental for all guests as well.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: LIR: 50.0 km
Pura Vida House is located within Hacienda Pinilla Beach Resort, just outside of Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We are close enough to town to enjoy an abundance of fun nightlife, international bistros and boutique shopping, but far enough to remember why you came to Costa Rica.

Getting Here
Fly into Costa Rica’s Liberia International Airport (LIR), located one hour up the coast from Pura Vida House and Hacienda Pinilla.

LIR Airport is only 2 1/2 hours from Miami, so usually about 4-5 hours total fly time from most US cities.

All major airlines fly from the US into LIR daily, and over 20 cities have direct flights.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, Golf Course Is On Site Or Within 15 Mins Walk, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 1.0 km.
