I have traveled the world and I have stayed in 6 star accommodations, eaten at the finest restaurants around the world, and seen some amazing sights. I have to say vacationing at Barefoot Vacation Villas in COSTA RICA is one of my absolute favorites. Its a stress free vacation. You get off of the plane and the villa staff are waiting for you and take your bags as you load into the air conditioned van. Its a short ride to the villa where you are greeted by the most amazing Costa Rican people you have ever met. All the drinks you could want, the BEST FOOD of any where I have been, and a staff ready to help and wait on you hand and foot! Not one of us has ever become ill because of the food or water (I always get sick when traveling in MEXICO). We like to eat and this villa will outdo any restaurant. We have been over and over and over because this villa has excellent service, great food, its safe in a gated community and a low crime country, and it has so much fun to offer couples and families. If you like adventure they offer excursions daily. Some are heart pounding and some are more relaxing, depending on what you are looking for in your vacation. EVEN my five year old son horse back rode, sailed the ocean, went down an unbelievable water slide, took a mud bath, played in the hot springs, four wheeled thru the country side, AND yes he a 5 year old zip lined thru the Costa Rican Jungle! I have a family of 6 and they beg for our vacation to be at Villa Cascada each year. They know the staff by name. The villa offers special night events for your group if you choose to book those as well- such as magicians, party dj's, karaoke, etc! My youngest son could not stop talking about all the chocolate milkshakes from Ronald (the villa bartender)! He was looking forward to seeing Ronald and drinking milkshakes, and once again the villa did not disappoint. They have had the same staff every year we have gone, which I believe says so much for the owners. Plus its like going back and visiting your international friends each and every year! This is our #1 pick for a vacation destination! Already choosing our date for Villa Cascada in 2014
