We're a 5 hour drive from the San Jose Airport or the Liberia Airport. San Jose has more options for small flights to our area. If you plan to rent a car either airport will be the same. Thank You , Andy Surf Vista Villas

To be honest our area is quite rugged . There are great beaches and restaurants , not much shopping and lots of dirty , dusty roads . I don't want to tell you no but it sounds like you may be looking for something more like Manuel Antonio or La Fortuna . Sorry for the delayed response Thanks , Andy SVV

We're a 10-15 minute walk from the beach, market and some great restaurants. Many guests stay without transportation, however I do want you to know that our hill is kind of steep. There are ATV rentals available as well if you choose to have transportation for part of your stay. Thank You , Andy SVV

"For a stay in excess of 3 days, we would recommend the larger suites, not the ‘birdcage’."
"Penthouse is most secluded"
"try the upper level rooms"
"Andy is super fast to reply so just be sure to let him know your needs. He will be super honest on what he recommends."
