We rented Villa Los Aires for 10 days between Christmas and New Years with our group of 7 famIly members/friends. The house is beautiful, and Viviana and Henry were fabulous. If you are looking to get away and truly relax, this is your place. We opted for the all inclusive meal plan. Viviana prepares breakfast and lunch, and Patricia prepares dinner for a minimal fee per person and then saves all grocery receipts for reimbursement. Much easier than trying to shop and cook considering the remote location of the villa. Some of our favorites were: Viviana's spread of tacos (pecscado, pollo, and carne) with all the toppings and salad, Viviana's pancakes, and Patricias amazing soups and plantains. Be sure to ask for it if you love avocado and papaya, they are very fresh and sold at all the fruit stands.
A couple tips and things we learned:
buy your wine and liquor at the duty free by the baggage claim carousel, it is the cheapest!
We decided to stop at Walmart in San Jose and it was a long stop and much pricier than the walmarts in the US.
Take Viviana's recommendation and do the Tito zip line in Quepos and the snorkel trip with Carlos out of Uvita. Both were incredible and well worth the price.
be prepared for some time in the car...the location is very remote, but well worth it. We spent almost as much time in the van with Henry and Viviana in the van, but we always felt safe and they always got us where we needed to go and they wait for you until you are ready to leave.
Overall...excellent and very unique trip, with incredible people to show us Costa Rica!
