Casa Azul was the setting for my week of "being" this past month. It is perfect:
small, private, beautiful, calm, everything within reach... I am planning my return with friends and family next year. It has a wonderful combination of feeling "out of the western world" with all of the comfort and amenities to provide a letting go into a childlike existence. Get up in the morning, put on that bathing suit and pull on shorts or a sarong and wander under the tree canopy to the end of a long private drive. In that short walk monkeys may be above your head with bright orange squirrels and green parrots active in their daily work. Watch out for that giant spider along the driveway waiting also for a meal!
Staff of Tess, Matt, Eduardo, Megelli, and Danny were wonderfully friendly and efficient!
Have a meal or cup of coffee in a variety of lovely open air restaurants and cafe's within a block or two. Yoga on the hillside is just 3 blocks away with a setting as in the movies - open air
platform about the trees with a view to the vast Pacific.
Then back for the most beautiful pool or the best ocean water you've been in since???? well
for me it was the best in my life! The waves are just big enough to have constant fun, the temperature perfect. And the sunsets unrivaled.
Maybe I'll see you next year!
