About the neighborhood
Playa San Miguel and the surrounding area is safe, secure, and full of plenty of light adventure for all ages! Kayak, surf, yoga, mountain bike, horseback tours...there is something here for all ages! Birders will truly appreciate the property of Cristal Azul and the estuary below for their prime viewing opportunities. Samara and Santa Teresa are both a day trip away and offer full day offshore and inshore sport fishing, scuba diving and trips to national parks! Like to dine out? While we don't have a "restaurant row" in town, there are several really fabulous places and we are really lucky to have such talented chefs in this remote setting!
Getting around
4x4! It's the way to get around on the beach and up the hill to the property! Prior to arrival, you will receive detailed driving instructions as well as tips to navigate the roads and best radio stations for your Costa Rica trips!
