Casa Pacifica - Punta Penca
Costa Rica / Guanacaste Coast
Relax in your tropical paradise at Casa Pacifica, located in Punta Penca.
Casa Pacifica is a five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom home located on Punta Penca. This spacious home is able to accommodate up to 11 guests.
Casa Pacifica has a variety of living spaces available, with outdoor spaces on four different levels. One of these is a spectacular rooftop terrace with wonderful views.
There is also an elevator that makes this five-story home accessible for all. The house also includes a SONOS sound system. Both the large media room and den have access to the main patio, which includes an infinity pool and a dining area with a built-in grill. The kitchen area has a den that opens up to the terrace and outdoor sitting space.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, three balconies sweeping ocean and hillside views. It sits among the trees, complete with a swing and marvelous bay views. The master level includes two other bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed. These bedrooms share a balcony overlooking the pool and Danta Beach.
The lower level has two additional bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a queen-sized bed; the other is a bunk room that sleeps three. The lower level also has a comfortable living room with a television and a small refrigerator. A lovely patio, complete with a small fountain, is located off of this living room.
The large rooftop terrace is a wonderful space to enjoy a cocktail and watch the magnificent sunsets at Las Catalinas. This terrace overlooks both Danta Beach and the Pacific Ocean and is comfortably furnished, including two hanging swings. A mini-bar area is located under the dramatic tower roof, with icemaker, small refrigerator, and sink.
Surrounded by tropical nature on land and at sea, Las Catalinas is a beautiful, car-free, fully walkable beach town in Costa Rica. The purpose is to create a way of life that is healthy, sustainable, fulfilling, and fun. Definitely one of the most fun things to do at Las Catalinas is simply to explore the town. Most of the streets are made for people. Every little passage seems to lead to a beautiful plaza or a view of the ocean.
Playa Danta is one of the best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches you will ever find. Go at medium to low tides when the beach is very flat. The swells are typically moderate, safe, spaced 15 seconds apart, and perfectly formed. These waves are unlike anything many of us have seen in other parts of the world. Costa Rica has many famous surfing beaches but Las Catalinas is partially sheltered from the prevailing southern swell, and that is what makes Playa Danta “just right” for boogie boarding.
Some of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica is right at Las Catalinas. The best spots are wherever you see rocks: the far side of Playa Dantita, the reef in between Danta and Dantita, along the shore of Punta Penca, or out at the Islotes Pitahayas islands just offshore. You’ll find lots of reef fish, coral, interesting underwater topography, big spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and who knows what else.
Kayaking and Paddle-Boarding
Las Catalinas is an ideal location for sea kayaking and stand up paddle-boarding. The protected bay of Playa Danta is perfect for beginners and often offers glassy smooth conditions. The Islotes Pitahayas just one kilometer offshore is a great destination with the swell surging dramatically on the rocks. The islands are a famous nesting site of pelicans and frigate birds. The coastline in both directions is dramatic and interesting with a variety of beautiful beaches, cliffs, and great snorkeling and swimming all within paddling range.
Yoga and Fitness
With an average temperature of 74 degrees year-round, Las Catalinas is the perfect place to get in a fitness groove. Whether it's weekly interval training classes, beachfront yoga under an Almendro tree, or grab some weights, this is a mecca for athletes and yogis alike.
Shopping and Dining
In the shops of Las Catalinas, you’ll find everything you need to elevate your stay in town. Get outfitted to enjoy the town and outdoors, set a course to learn about ocean protection, bring home an unexpected Costa Rican gift, give some local life and flair to your home, or relax and take care of your body. It’s all here, and it’s all within a few minutes walk.
Guanacaste is quickly becoming a major player in Costa Rica’s culinary scene, and Las Catalinas offers some of the best options available just a few steps from your front door.
