Cool Pools and Paradise on the Sand
In the seaside towns of Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal, Costa Rica, our luxury vacation villas boast the best of two popular vacation options: infinity pools and beautiful beaches.
Let’s face it, no one wants to go on a tropical trip that isn’t near a body of warm water. Or preferably several bodies of warm water. Believe us when we proclaim that pool lovers and beach bums will both be completely satisfied in the southern zone of Costa Rica.
YouGetHere’s luxury vacation properties are dotted along the gorgeous Pacific coastline, near some of the finest beaches in the world, including the famous Whale’s Tail reef and the mesmerizing caves of Playa Ventanas.
Whether you want to spend your vacation in saltwater sea kayak or at the swimming pool, here are several incredible vacation rentals in southern Costa Rica to consider:
You can’t get closer to the beach than Caballitos Del Mar. It’s rare to find true beachfront vacation homes in this part of Costa Rica. You’ll be one of the few people in town lucky enough to get from the pool to the waves to the restaurant in a quick minute. And for surfers, the waves out front are delightful, and almost always empty.
Vista Encanto has a spacious, infinity swimming pool with a warm-water jet tub attached to keep everyone feeling fine at all times. Poolside scenes of the Terraba River interlacing with the mighty Pacific Ocean leave many guests in awe. Visitors get to witness a daily dance of significant tidal swings, disappearing sandbars and local fishing boats racing out toward sea. And did we mention the toucans?
Sometimes one pool is not enough. For those times, a stay at The Jade House will do the trick. There are three — three! — swimming pools. So, the kids can be in one pool making stadium-level noise while splashing water at the lizards. Uncle Joe with the bad jokes can be pouring drinks at the swim-up bar. That gives you a third option to get away from it all and relax at your very own swimming spot. Maybe even do a few laps for exercise. It’s a perfect setup!
Ballena Royale was made for outdoor living. When you’re feeling spry, jump in the infinity pool or partake in yoga exercise over at the palapa. There are a half-dozen pool lounge chairs as well as plenty of outdoor furniture. Belly up to a gorgeous wood bar or let the sounds of the water fountain lull you to sleep in a lounge chair. What a life!
