Living Large by the Sea at Las Ventanas del Mar

Playa Carrillo Beach Costa Rica Gated Guanacaste Community

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." ~ Jawaharal Nehru

Until you’ve spent time in Costa Rica, it’s hard to comprehend how unspoiled this Central America paradise is. Did you know it’s also home to the world’s happiest people? The 'pura vida' lifestyle reflects well on the Ticos and Americans who venture here. Only 150 miles separate the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Like the coast of California, the mountains reach out to the edges of the sea. The region has jaw dropping beauty all along the coastline. Mountains and towering volcanos reach up into the sky embellished by a rainforest and the wide sandy beaches tease surfers of all skill levels with their rolling waves. During the early morning hours and at sunrise, the wildlife coos throughout the mountains. Songs from wild monkeys and tropical birds. The mesmerizing sunsets and star filled skies are like no where else on earth.

Costa Rica is home to the world’s best sport fishing. Offshore big game fish include swordfish, sailfish and blue marlin. Billfish can weigh as much as 1,800 pounds. Editable fish found in shore include mahi-mahi (dorado), snapper, and grouper. Folks who explore Costa Rica for the first time often start in the busier cities like San Jose, Jaco and Tamarindo. Seasoned individuals who want to live away from touristy cities search for unchartered waters and unspoiled regions like Guanacaste. Residents can choose to live at cooler temperatures in the higher elevations or enjoy warm sunny days living on the edge of the sea. Costa Rica has something for everyone.

We found the best of both worlds in the Guanacaste region, a friendly neighborhood where stress quickly melts away. Las Ventanas del Mar is where to find nirvana. The gated mountaintop community built by American developers is perched above Playa Carrillo Beach known as one of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches in Costa Rica. Its geographical location is also a superb spot for sport fishing. The sea is bountiful with fish at Carrillo and the cove offers protection from seasonal winds. Inside the gates of the community are relaxing resort-style amenities which include a to-die-for cliffside infinity edge pool and spa, poolside lounge ranchos, tennis courts, a spring fed lake, outdoor barbecue and entertainment facility. 

It’s hard to beat this Guanacaste community’s location! In less than 10 minutes, residents can be strolling on the beach or boarding a chartered fishing boat heading out on to the blue green sea. Playa Samara is the nearest small town and is about another 5 minutes away. Its simplicity is adorable. Shell shops, ice cream stores and street vendors line main street. Casual beach bars and local restaurants hug the seashore. In town, there are a number of places to pick up fresh bread, hand selected meats, organic produce and everyday staples. Ticos are very friendly people and are quick to share a smile. The life expectancy here is one of the highest in the world.

Folks searching for a piece of paradise in Costa Rica would be wise to start with touring homes at Las Ventanas del Mar. The community offers Discovery Packages to experience the lifestyle up close. When you stay at Las Ventanas, you get more than just a hotel room. The luxury Costa Rica rental homes & condos are privately owned, luxury accommodations fully furnished with all the comforts of home. Large, spacious living areas, fully equipped kitchens, and over-sized suites with private bathrooms invite you to settle in & make yourself at home. Getting to this Guanacaste community is easy via Liberia International Airport. Once you visit and experience the Pura Vida lifestyle, you may never want to leave. Fortunately homes and home sites are available for purchase.
