The sun is warm. The breeze is soft. Birds sing and waves crash in the distance. And, as for you? Well, you’re relaxing in your private, ocean-view pool. Perhaps that’s a drink in your hand? The scent of fresh fish, charring on the grill? An sun-loving iguana, toddling across your terrace?

Any way you envision it, this is life at some of the top Costa Rica luxury vacation villas.

This is your life.

Because, Costa Rica is dedicated to fulfilling your vacation dreams. To inviting you to experience your leisure time a little differently. Here, time slows down. The sun hangs high a little longer. And, life is good.

Because, you’ve rented one of these vacation homes, equipped with ocean-view and oceanfront swimming pools. You’ve spent time on your private terrace, in these cozy sun loungers. You’ve floated the afternoon away, suspended between sky and sea.

And now, you’ve poured yourself an ice-cold drink in preparation for one of the world’s best sunsets. You’ve decided that this is the life. The life you for you, at least while you’re here.

The only thing left to do, is enjoy it.
