Welcome to Playa Matapalo! This picturesque town rests on Costa Rica’s spectacular Central Pacific coast, halfway between Quepos, home of Manuel Antonio National Park, and Dominical, a popular surf and bird watching area.

This thriving remote community has breath taking Ocean, Mountain and Rainforest views.   Horseback riding, biking, zip lines, swimming, scuba diving and amazing surfing are but a few things you can experience while staying in Matapalo.  With miles of pristine beaches and a melting pot of cultural influences, we guarantee there is something here for everyone.   

A Pulperia, just around the corner from our casita, offers a variety of goods and services, such as a Restaurant, Grocery Store and public Wi Fi.  Matapalo offers a wide array of dining experiences.  You can easily travel from this more remote tropical location to busy hotspots in and around Dominical or Quepos.

Be sure not to miss our Sunset Market. Every Saturday at 2:00 PM the locals set up shop on the beach selling a wide variety of produce and Tico treasures. While visiting the market enjoy the beach, volleyball, soccer and the new children’s playground. Your afternoon at the market would not be complete without experiencing one of Matapalo’s breathtaking sunsets.

All this and more is just a short walk from our casita! Please look through our gallery to see some of what awaits you in Your Costa Rica.  We are pleased to offer you our Casita en la Playa for your dream vacation and hope to see you in beautiful Playa Matapalo very soon!
