At the end of a 17 kilometer drive down a rocky, dusty stretch of road, past small and quaint Costa Rican villages lies Light of Dawn.

Removed completely from 21st century disarray, one’s inner calm is restored by the varied...

If you are looking for a place that is off the grid then this place is for you. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. We swam under the waterfall, watched parrots fly around us, daily hikes. The owner, Peter, will take you on a tour of the property and bring a photographer to take pictures for...

We had an amazing stay at Light of Dawn! The beautiful house is located high on the mountain and makes you feel like you are deep in the rainforest. Our favorite part was the walk through the property with the owner. We learned SO much about the incredible amounts of plants and trees, and the work he has done on...

About the neighborhood
Nestled 1000 feet above Manual Antonio State Park in the Quepos area. It is located on the road leading to Naranjito and Via Nueva, in the direction of San Marcos. It is about 35 minutes to the beach.The property is surrounded by foothills and therefore about 5 to 10 degrees cooler than some of the more stifling areas below. A refreshing break after a hot day on the beach.

It is on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica with lovely white sand beaches and many activities nearby.
Car advised
