How would you like to wake up in your beautiful casita to a view of the sun rising over the Pacific (that's right -- rising, not setting!). Anamaya Resort is poised on the top of a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean where it meets the Gulf of Nicoya, above Montezuma. From the large, airy, shaded veranda, as well as from the beautiful infiinity pool, you can look one way and see south along the Pacific Coast of central Costa Rica, and the other up the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. The accomodations are beautifully done -- artistic without being precious or busy--and fit right in with the restful, warm vibe. And the couple who run the place are welcoming and eager to make your stay joyful and relaxing. Two potential drawbacks: Anamaya is up a steep hill from town, so you pretty much have to drive (or take a long hot walk back up the hill!) to get down into the town of Montezuma or to the many beaches in the area. Also, it's pricey. But you're paying for a beautiful experience!
