If you're looking to slow down, disconnect and experience authentic Costa Rica, then the Sandbox might be the place for you. The highlight of this space is it's beach front location and the old school Costa Rican beach life vibe that is fast disappearing in the name of progress and luxury. This quiet, 2nd floor one bedroom apartment kisses the Pacific Ocean and looks over the jungle. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys.
