Experience eco-jungle living in style at Casa Arenosa. This private, ocean-front home was created with all the love of Matapalo. It is located on the secluded beach of Backwash Bay on an acre and a half of lushly landscaped gardens.
The Osa Peninsula is paradise for nature lovers who thrive on adventure. It is as pristine and off the beaten-road as it gets! There are no big hotels, or discos on the beach. It’s raw, beautiful and brimming with life. National Geographic calls the area the most bio-diverse place on the planet!
Wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys, take a swim in the ocean, then stroll along a secluded beach and watch Scarlet Macaws soar overhead. Afterwards, take a dip in the refreshing plunge pool and relax in a hammock while watching four different kinds of endangered monkeys play in the bamboo gardens off the deck. At night, sleep in a comfy bed under a mosquito net canopy while being lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sound of the waves.
This is the life...Pura Vida.
