Costa Rica is a beautiful country. It has a rainforest and gorgeous island living between the Caribbean and Pacific oceans. The Papagayo Peninsula was formed by volcanic activity, and 70 percent of its land is protected against development. Compared to other popular vacation spots, there are few opportunities here to buy property or rent a place for a vacation. It is an exclusive gated community, making it an even better place to visit because you can get away and feel completely hidden on your own personal island. Some of the most luxurious places to rent for a vacation are located on Peninsula Papagayo.

There are miles of open beaches and thousands of acres of tropical forest in this paradise just waiting for you to discover it. Book the best experience possible with one of these Costa Rica luxury villas.

What to do in Peninsula Papagayo

Explore the trails in emerald forest or take to one of the many uncrowded beaches along the gulf. The Gulf of Papagayo has calm waters that are safe for children and families. If you prefer surfing, you will enjoy one of Guanacaste’s beaches. Snorkeling and ocean diving expose you to coral reefs and exotic fish at Monkey Head rock.

Enjoy water sports such as kayaking and canoeing, surfing, or sailing. Witch’s Rock has a perfect wave from the swell coming off the rock formations. For land sports, visit the Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, where you can golf on a course with gorgeous valleys and sea cliffs. If you want to experience the local culture, you can watch locals make pre-Columbian pottery or take a cooking class on the local cuisine. You will never be bored when you rent a Costa Rica vacation villa.
