We just returned from a wonderful week in Casa Linda. There is a large mango tree by the front porch that the monkeys visited daily. Wildlife is everywhere and you definitely feel close to nature and "off the grid" (though they do have a wireless access point on the property if you need to stay connected). William, the caretaker, is very helpful and works hard to ensure a pleasant stay. Although I was a little nervous that we would not have air conditioning so close to the equator, I found it was a non-issue. The temperature dropped to the 70's most nights and the fans at every bed kept us very comfortable.
The beach is never crowded and very picturesque. It is fine for swimming when the waves aren't too strong, and when the waves are strong, surfers love it. We drove ourselves to the property from San Jose. The roads are fine, but I did like having a 4x4 vehicle for the last few miles that are dirt road and can get muddy in the rain.
