Whenever in Pavones to surf, I stay at the Mira Olas. The owner, Lili, has a fantastic story to tell, and is an incredibly pleasant innkeeper. Having been a frequent guest, I feel like family. Lili easily accommodated an early arrival, and late check out, allowing my family to get the most of the surf at Pavones. The rooms are... More

Getting here is not fun but once you arrive you are in for a treat. This is the jungle and you feel like you are apart of it. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There is a high powered ceiling fan so it is hot. The room comes with a mini fridge, coffee maker and coffee, and a single... More

We felt like we were in the jungle, which is amazing, considering it's only a 5 minute walk to 'downtown Pavones' and the surf break. Waves at this time of year are nothing to brag about, but we had them almost to ourselves. November is the end of the rainy season in Pavones and we were about the only tourists.... More

Mira Olas was my favorite place in Costa Rica. We came to Pavones for the amazing waves, but staying here was another highlight. The cabinas are perfect surf hideouts- set back from the town amidst tropical fruit orchards and blissful silence. The river running through the property was a lovely bonus- as were the hummingbirds, macaws & toucans we saw... More

Mira Olas is just a quick walk up the road from the break, but those few feet of elevation get you more of a breeze to cool off with in the evenings, and you're out of the main "town's" noise and activities. Lilli and Steve take meticulous care of the property, and the fruit trees respond with luscious harvests of... More

I've stayed at Lili's Mira Olas several times over the years and have never been disappointed! It's close to the surf (either by walk or paddle down the river) yet quietly set at the edge of the jungle. Plenty of monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds and blue morpho butterflies to enjoy and a great variety of fruit to pick and eat.

My husband and I stayed here. The owner, Lili, was great, the rooms are clean and very affordable. The property is lovely, with fruit trees and river access.

This was my second trip to Pavones and I was delighted to stay at Mira Olas's Jungle Deluxe cottage. Staying up the hill (versus the Moderna cabinas) was well worth the extra few steps to be closer to the jungle and the daily wildlife show. The main living area is open air while the bedroom and bathroom are enclosed with... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights during Semana Santa. We payed $40/night for the deluxe jungle lodge cabin. It was a great experience, but we were ready to leave when we did. It's very rustic and pretty uncomfortable. The kitchen, loft and deck are totally open air. The bedroom and bath are screened in, and there's a... More
