Spacious, warm, and rich in wood and dark leather, this Guanacaste beach house is great for families and groups of friends who want a cultural feel just steps away from the beach.

In this elegant home, comfort and heritage meet in papaya, dark salmon and wood brown hues, giving its ample living room, the integrated kitchen and the dining space a spacious and comfortable feel, complemented by rustic wood furnishings that give this Costa Rican vacation villa the sense of a cozy cottage, accented by an open air terrace and private plunge pool.

The master suite features a king bed and a balcony with partial ocean views, while secondary rooms feature a queen, a bunk with two full beds, and a trundle. Serving as a second master suite, the Maya Apartment has a king bed and accompanying trundle, adding flexibility to the sleeping arrangements and additional privacy. All bedrooms feature an ensuite bathroom, and throughout the personal spaces of this home the rustic furniture and chandelier lamps speak to the home’s colonial inspirations.

Casa Maya is particularly versatile for large parties. With a number of different sleeping options, and the addition of the Maya Apartment, this vacation home in Costa Rica accommodates up to eighteen guests. Children are welcome.

To help ensure that vacation really feels like vacation, this home comes provided with a House Mom, who will help prepare breakfast, clean, and do the laundry throughout the day. And for guests who want to get the most out of a visit to Las Catalinas and the surrounding areas, the local Concierge service provides assistance with every need from reservations to excursions.

Las Catalinas

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.

Baranda Villas Collection

Charming residences, friendly service, and thoughtful amenities make this the best way to embrace life in town. Baranda is comprised of studios, flats, and up to six bedroom homes with remarkable locations in town, all just a short walk away from the beach, as well as town’s restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities.

Boogie Boarding

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 are 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. Weather it's weekly interval training classes, beach front yoga under an almendro tree, or grabbing 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 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 around available just a few steps from your front door.
