San Juanillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
10° North, Pacific Coast, Nicoya Peninsula
The Locals Know....
Ask anyone from Tamarindo to Samara about San Juanillo and you will undoubtedly hear something like:
“aaaaahhh.....San Juanillo. It’s beautiful there!”
It’s true! Here you will find a relatively
undiscovered refuge of peace and quiet. Even at some of the more
popular tourist destinations on The Nicoya Peninsula, from the
beaches of Flamingo and Coco in the north to Mal Pais, Santa Teresa
or Montezuma in the south, you won’t find a better spot for
relaxation, secluded beaches and true Costa Rican hospitality.
The locals know it as “Tranquilo San Juanillo”.
"Location. Location. Location"
San Juanillo is on the Pacific Coast of The Nicoya Peninsula. Being located in a “tropical dry forest”, an environment unique to this area, wehave some of the best weather in all of Central America. This means “30-40% more sunshine than most of Costa Rica”, a less-humid dry season and a pleasant green season that brings just enough rain to simply keep us green! We are conveniently located less than two hours from the International Airport at Liberia (See “Travel Info.”) and a short 20-minute scenic drive to the airstrip (and “hustle-and-bustle”) of Nosara. With an unparalleled selection of beaches in the immediate area, San Juanillo is a perfect place to base your Costa Rica vacation. (See “Maps”)
Our nearest neighbor, Playa Ostional only 5 kilometers
south, is home to a National Wildlife Refuge and one of the main
nesting beaches in the world for the Olive Ridley Turtles! (See “Activities”)
Ostional also offers great waves for surfing as does our other
neighbor, Playa Azul at Marbella only 5 kilometers to north.
The guest house at Hacienda del Cielo is big & breezy, colorful & comfortable and commands an incredible view. Perched in the jungle high above the variety of beautiful beaches and the quiet village of San Juanillo.
