We have vacationed in Costa Rica for over 15 years and as part of our annual travels throughout the country we have stayed at Villas Nicolas for over 10 of those years. It has been consistently wonderful. We always say that it’s like going home.
The views from the extra-large private balconies are spectacular. Overlooking jungle and ocean you will see 3 different kinds of monkeys, exotic birds and an occasional sloth.
On the road side of Villas Nicolas you can catch a bus of taxi in one direction to the bustling town of Quepos and in the other direction to the beach and national park. We also do a daily walk from Villas Nicolas down a country road to the beach, then along the beach to the park. Villas Nicolas is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
We love to cook in and Villas Nicolas offers in its lower units full kitchens. When we don’t feel like cooking, the restaurant at Villas is second to none. Just make sure to make reservations at least a day ahead of time.
A big thank you to Sheryl, Julio and the rest of the staff for making our stays at Villas Nicolas consistently enjoyable.
We will be back, many times.
