We are starting to wrap up a year that none of us ever will forget. As we approach the end of 2020, we are all so happy to turn to something more joyful: the holiday season and everything we have to be grateful for! Whether your traditions center around family, food, football, the Great Outdoors or travel, we know the holidays will look a little different this year for most of us. Yet, in spite of the crazy year we have all endured, we still have much to be grateful for.
At Villa Perezoso, we are grateful to live in a tranquil place that is surrounded by so much natural beauty. We are also grateful for the support of our staff and our vendors as well as the tour operators in Manuel Antonio, who have shown so much camaraderie and solidarity during this challenging year. If you are traveling with us for the holidays ahead, you will soon be able to experience some of the reasons why we are so grateful this year…
To be able to sit outside on one of the terraces of the villa and observe nature, serene and at peace, is a true gift. To be able to visit the beach or mountains, to breathe fresh air and experience wildlife in its natural habitat is healing. Many of us spent months at time during the shutdown filled with worry and anticipation. Sitting among nature in a peaceful environment is an offering we must all learn to cherish, and one that so many of us here in Manuel Antonio took on board this year. Another important reason we are grateful is that in spite of the difficulty of the year, we were able to spend important family time together. As we approach Thanksgiving, we will once again gather together, but this time with an air of enthusiasm for the new year ahead of us.
We are so excited to be welcoming our guests back and we want to thank you in advance for your continued support over the years. Many of you have visited us several times, or have referred us to your friends and family. Your support means everything to us and we are so grateful! If you visit us this year, you will be greeted with the same warmth that you have always received, although you may note an even greater sense of excitement from our team to be hosting you! Your well-being and that of our team is at the forefront of everything we do. We take pride in playing a part in the important moments of your vacation, and give thanks for the opportunity to be able to host you.
Happy holidays from all of us at Villa Perezoso to you!
October is here and the days are starting to get cooler up
North. Leaves are changing colors and starting
to fall, and ideas for the upcoming holidays are starting to take shape… As you start to plan for this year’s holiday
season, you may be ready to consider travel, and perhaps even an exotic and
relaxing getaway to the beautiful beaches and rainforest of Costa Rica. So whether you want to come for the holidays
or at a different time, we have some exciting offers to share with you, and
some fun travel ideas also!
Amid these crazy COVID times, we could all use a little
peace and benefit from the healing
effects of nature. And with Costa
Rica now open to all US states (starting on November 1st), who
wouldn’t enjoy a stroll on a quiet beach with the sound of palm trees moving in
the wind and monkeys playing in the background?
Or how about an exciting zip through the rainforest canopy to energize
your senses? Sometimes just a change of
scenery is enough to provide us that much-needed break we all need from our
daily stresses, and from the intensity of 2020.
Well, at Villa Perezoso, in the beautiful town of Manuel
Antonio, just minutes from the Manuel Antonio National Park, there is no shortage
of breathtaking views. Morning coffee on
the terraces of the villa will offer you a chance to observe Costa Rica’s
wildlife at its finest, and will be sure to wipe away all your stresses. And if a tranquil morning didn’t do it, then perhaps
an afternoon cocktail and dip in the pool, complete with the sound of scarlet
macaws flying overhead, will provide you the perfect backdrop to sink into utter
and complete relaxation. On the other hand, if you are more prone to getting
out and about on vacation, we have a great list of private
activities that are the ideal way to stay active, while practicing social
distancing and enjoying the Great Outdoors of Costa Rica!
So, with R&R and a little adventure in mind, as well as
a desire for a change of scenery, we are offering the following reservation specials for this 2020 Fall/2021
Christmas Week: $12,950*
New Year’s Week: $12,950*
*Includes Chef for up to 3 meals daily.
Cost of food is separate.
For those who don’t want to travel over the holidays, but
are interested in a little getaway before 2020 ends, we are offering the
following special for our beautiful villa from now through December 19th!
*Excludes Thanksgiving. Does not include Chef, but can be added-on.
And finally, for those who are interested in visiting us
after the holidays for a Winter escape, we are offering 10% Off all reservations for
Winter 2021, excluding Easter Week,
for reservations booked now through December 19th!
As always, our rates include our pre-arrival travel planning
and on-site concierge services! So if you have questions on why
you need to visit Costa Rica on your next vacation, or need help with
travel ideas or activity planning, our reservations and travel team are on-hand
to assist you! Remember that at Villa
Perezoso, we offer a place where you can relax and decompress in total privacy,
while enjoying the surrounding tropical beauty of Manuel Antonio’s rainforest
September 15, 2020 celebrated 199 years of Costa Rica’s independence.
This was a joyous day across the country and for Costa Ricans all over the
world, as this day symbolizes freedom, democracy and a culture of peace. This day is celebrated with several popular
traditions, and this year was no exception.
Here is a look at a few of these traditions and their important meaning
to Costa Rica:
“Faroles” or lanterns are lit up on the eve of September 14th, the day before Independence Day as a symbol of freedom. This tradition dates back to the year 1821, when at 6pm Costa Rica’s Independence Act was signed, giving them autonomy. On this day many years ago, Costa Ricans lit lanterns and joined together to sign the National Anthem to celebrate. Since then, this has become a tradition that school children, families, government offices and homes across the country all observe. Beautiful and elaborate lanterns are often part of children’s homework the week working up to Independence Day, and these are usually boasted at parades that are held in each town. The night of the lanterns is a huge Costa Rican tradition and party. This year it was celebrated virtually.
National Anthem and the Costa Rican Flag
The lyrics to Costa Rica’s National Anthem are always sung
in the homes of Costa Ricans. The National Anthem is not a war song; rather, it
tells the story of a democratic people, of farmers who have not experienced
great conflicts and of a peaceful nation.
The national flag faithfully expresses the life of Costa Rica,
characterized by always seeking conciliation, as well as by the virtuous
purpose that guides its destiny. Mini
Costa Rican flags are proudly adorned in homes and in people’s car the weeks
leading up to the holiday, and towns are all festively decorated with large
flags on lamp posts and traffic lights. It’s a lovely sight to see!
Weekends to the Beach
No Independence Day in Costa Rica would be complete without a
visit to the beach, and this year was no exception. In spite of Covid and its restrictions,
families all loaded into their cars and took road trips to nearby beaches. Social distancing and remaining in bubbles
was enforced, but this certainly didn’t take away from the fun of being
gathered at the beach, having BBQ’s, playing soccer and soaking up the sunshine
and fresh air. Our very own Manuel
Antonio National Park and beaches were very busy this past weekend and we were
thrilled to receive responsible visitors from all over the country!
All of us at Villa Perezoso have a great love for Costa Rica, and are proud to reside here and be able to share this wonderful piece of paradise with our guests. This is a country that promotes peace and honors family and relationships in a way that we should all take note. We look forward to sharing the beauty of Costa Rica and its wonderful people with you soon. We are happy to announce that the following US States are now allowed in to Costa Rica: New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Maine, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Rhode Island, Wyoming, Arizona and New Mexico. Starting on October 1st, California residents will also be allowed to visit. Additional states will also be added at that time. If you would like to visit, please contact us, and we will be happy to help you plan your next visit…
thrilled to announce that as of September 1st, Costa Rica will start
allowing tourists from 6 U.S. states:
New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont and Maine. The
Costa Rican Health Department is currently reviewing Colorado, Massachusetts
and Pennsylvania to add to the list, and other states are planned to be
included soon as well. While this is a limited start, it is a good sign that
soon we will be able to host guests from the US again, and start doing what we
love to do: helping to create amazing memories for visitors from all over the
world to Villa Perezoso. Our villa family and the rain forest of Manuel Antonio
have missed everyone!
Currently, the Costa
Rica Tourism Board, called the “ICT” among locals, is expecting about four
flights a week from the airports of Newark (EWR), La Guardia (LGA) and John F.
Kennedy (JFK). As Costa Rica has kept its borders closed to U.S. tourists since
mid-March due to the pandemic, this is wonderful news to us all, and we couldn’t
wait to share! Tourism is the heart of Costa Rica, and it’s one of the country’s
biggest industries. It comprises 8.2% of its GDP, and the United States is the country
from which most people visit annually. More than 1.3 million tourists
came to Costa Rica from the United States in 2019. Costa Rica started
allowing tourist from the United Kingdom, the European Union and Canada on
August 1st. They later added additional countries to the list, and
now allow a total of 45 countries, including the U.S. We can’t wait to start
hosting groups again!
There are several requirements for entry to the
country, such as having travel insurance that covers COVID-19 and also having a
negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of your flight, but these may ease up or
change as time goes on. For now, here is a complete
list of entry requirements:
Some other important things to be aware of for travel to Costa Rica is that upon landing in-country, travelers must wear face protection and comply with the protocols of the air terminal with regard to physical distancing, disinfection of carpets, taking temperature readings, and any other sanitary instructions. Both the San José (SJO) and Liberia Airports (LIR) have been working hard for the last several months to make the welcoming of tourists safe, and as easy and stress-free as possible, so visitors can feel confident while traveling to Costa Rica.
Aside from entry requirements, Costa Rica has re-opened allows all outdoor tourist activities, such as zip lining, national parks, surfing, jet skiing, white water rafting, sunset tours, waterfall tours, yoga, pilates and paddle boarding as well as much more! Some of these activities offer private options for your group. For more information on private tour options, check out these activities. Face coverings are required for indoor public areas, so it is a good idea to always have a mask in hand for check-in at the different tours!
If you would like ideas for vacation itineraries or have any other travel related questions, don’t hesitate to contact us! We’re excited to welcome you back. Everyone at Villa Perezoso and the beautiful rain forest of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica awaits you!
Day in Costa Rica is a national holiday and is normally celebrated every year
on August 15th. This year in order to boost national tourism, the
government has moved the official holiday to Monday, August 17th so
that locals, along with international visitors, can enjoy a long weekend to
celebrate. Costa Rica is a strong matriarchal
society and this holiday weekend will be spent like so many others; Either by
sharing a big family meal at home with some of Costa Rica’s most authentic
dishes, by taking Mom out to eat for her favorite food, or perhaps by taking a trip
to the beach! The latter is certainly a favorite
among both urbanites and those who live on the coast, and no doubt after being
in lock-down for several months, everyone is enjoying getaways to the beach to
soak up the rays of sunshine and the feeling of wet sand on their feet. In addition to relaxing strolls on the beach,
many families will take adventurous hikes through the rain forest in search of the
exotic wildlife Costa Rica offers so abundantly. So, in anticipation of Costa
Rican Mother’s Day, we wanted to honor several of the animal species special to
us here in Manuel Antonio. Of course,
there are many, but chose four of our favorite mammals, and started with the
revered sloth. After
all, Villa Perezoso, or “The Sloth Villa” was named after these beloved animals! And no less special to us are the 3 species
of monkeys commonly seen in the trees surrounding Villa Perezoso.
Just like the other baby mammals, sloths prefer to stay with their mothers while they are young. There is a very close bond between
mothers and babies, and baby sloths love to hang on their mother’s fur. Baby sloths will cling
to their mother’s belly until they are able to feed themselves, which can take
anywhere from five weeks to six months. Once they have learned to
feed themselves and they stop dangling from their mother, little sloths will
continue to stay alongside their mother for two to four years, depending on their species. These amazing
creatures have a life span of about 20 years and spend most of their life
sleeping! Sloths have a very low metabolic
rate and therefore sleep about 20 hours per day and only travel about 40 yards
per day amid the rain forest canopy. Since
they don’t move much, it is always a very exciting sight to spot a sloth with
her baby in the Manuel Antonio National Park. Baby and momma sloths can often
be seen right outside of Villa Perezoso enjoying some bites off of one of their
favorite trees, the Guarumo tree, which
are planted all around the villa.
Mother howler monkeys care for their young for about 12
months after they are born.
Female offspring remain in their
natal group and therefore stay
with their mother long after
they are independent. The average age of howler monkeys ranges from
between 15 and 20 years old. These
fascinating creatures are considered the largest Central American monkey, and
they live in the upper canopy of forests and love to be alongside the coast,
making Costa Rica an ideal location for them. Howler monkeys are not especially active
compared to other species of Central and South American monkeys. They spend a
lot of their time just hanging out, sitting on their branches with other
members of their group, which range in size between 10 and 20 members, but can occasionally
have up to 40. While visiting Villa
Perezoso, you will surely hear the deep guttural sound of these monkeys echoing
amidst the surrounding rainforest! This
howling allows the monkeys to locate each other without expending too much energy
on moving or risking physical confrontation with another troop. You may even
lucky enough to spot a momma howler with her baby!
Female squirrel monkeys are responsible for almost all
infant care. Females within a group exhibit birth synchrony and increased
vigilance during the birth season because newborns and infants are particularly
susceptible to predators. In some groups, males also vigorously protect infants
from predators, but in other groups,
where males are on the periphery of the social group, they exhibit no infant
protection. For the first month of life, infants remain in constant physical
contact with their mother, usually being carried on her back because they are
too large and impede movement if they are carried on the front. This is a
common sight in Manuel Antonio where squirrel monkeys live happily amid the
rain forest. During the first five to
seven weeks, infants begin to leave their mother to explore the surrounding
environment and interactions between mother and infant become increasingly
fewer. Infants become independent during the second through fourth months of
life, spending more time with peers or play groups. Some groups are fully
weaned by four months, but others are not fully weaned until 18 months of
age. It’s always a fantastic site to
see these monkeys troupes with their active youngsters jumping from tree to
not least, comes The White-Faced or “capuchin” monkey. This monkey is often seen in Manuel Antonio
and is known for being “ornery” because it often throws fruits down from trees
or hisses and spits on human observers! The
capuchin lives in troops that can exceed 20 animals and include both males and
females, three quarters of which are females.
The White-Faced are perceived as cantankerous, but actually they are
just highly intelligent and social animals. They are the largest-brained, smartest
monkeys in the Americas. Capuchins are remarkable in many ways, but in the
field of motherhood and child care, they stand out. For starters, they implement a type of “daycare”
system among group members. After a
capuchin infant is born, members will compete to have a turn with the
baby. They will inspect and care for
the baby whenever the mother will permit.
Other group members will even act as “babysitters” and carry the infant
for the mother. Secondly, babies are
known to be regularly nursed by females in the group other than their own
mothers. Finally, the White-Faced monkey
is extremely tolerant of juvenile curiosity and encourages their playfulness and
interaction with other members as they get older. Certainly an interesting comparison for human
parents! Aside from the interesting
facts of parenthood, the White-Faced Monkey is revered for having independently
evolved many traits like tool use that were once regarded as uniquely human, including
rubbing plants over its body in an apparent use of herbal medicines as well as using
tools as weapons and for getting to food.
just a few of our favorite mammals that call home to the surrounding forest
around Villa Perezoso. Of course there
is so much more wildlife surrounding the villa and in Manuel Antonio. Toucans,
Scarlet Macaws and other reptiles abound as do so many other jungle
animals. If you would like to experience
some of these animals in person, contact
us for information on reserving a visit to Villa Perezoso!
For many people travel brings them joy, and they will
continue to explore the world and find happiness through travel, even if it
means doing so in new ways. As travelers
seek safety amid social distancing and new norms, the travel industry is
adapting by focusing on more privacy, dedicated staff throughout guest stays, vacation
activities that allow more time in the great outdoors and more secluded lodging
options. Luckily for Costa Rica, many of
those new requirements have long since been in place! And for those aspects that are newly
required, Costa Rica has been working tirelessly as a destination on modifying
travel protocols to adapt to the current situation. With that in mind, here are 3 reasons why we
think you need to consider Costa Rica and Villa Perezoso for your next vacation
Enjoyment of the Simpler Things in
has always had a focus on pura vida
or the “pure life” philosophy. Pura vida is without a doubt the phrase
most commonly used, and can be heard far and wide throughout Costa Rica, but
the saying goes far beyond its simple translation. It’s a way of life and those
who come to Costa Rica and get a taste for it often get hooked and want to come
back for more! Often referred to as a
synonym of hakuna matata, pura vida reflects the relaxed lifestyle
of Costa Ricans, which serves as a model for those of us who live hectic and
stressful lifestyles in our day to day lives.
This term is used as much for a greeting as to bid farewell to a friend or a
stranger alike. It can be an expression of gratitude or satisfaction, and is
most definitely used as a way to say “Everything’s great!”. Pura Vida embodies the lifestyle that
Costa Ricans live; a world where being stress-free and thankful for the simple
things like family, health, food on the table and good friends are far more
important than material acquisitions, certainly a great perspective to have
during the present times we are living!
Connection with the Outdoors
is a country that is very proud of its natural beauty. Whether visiting our beautiful beach and
rainforest community of Manuel Antonio, or any of the other coastal towns along
the Pacific or Atlantic Coasts, the volcanoes or one of many mountainous coffee
plantation regions, this country always offers a spectacular landscape! Costa Rica travel companies and lodging
providers have long since encouraged its travelers and guests to explore off
the beaten track places, of which the country has plenty! Private tours and activities are readily
available and there is no shortage of wide open spaces here!
Research shows that pre-pandemic people spent more time
indoors than outdoors, and now that trend has shifted as people look for freedom
and the peace of mind that comes from being outside. We know about the healing
power of nature and we know that it is essential for our health and
happiness to get outside, exercise and breathe fresh air, especially in this
current time of stress and anxiety. Right near Villa Perezoso, we have
numerous hiking trails that offer some of the country’s most beautiful views
and a chance to visit many of the beaches that Manuel Antonio offers. What better way to practice social
Connection with Family &
even more important than a love for nature, is the love Costa Ricans have for
their families and their friends. Long revered as the most important thing in
life, strong bonds with family and friends are at the root of everything Costa
Ricans do. We all know that it is important to surround ourselves with family and friends
for support and comfort in both times of joy and distress and studies have
shown that having supportive relationships is a strong protective factor
against mental illnesses and helps to increase our overall well-being and
happiness. Perhaps we can attribute this
to Costa Rica having one of the world’s blue zones, where centurions live long
and happy lives. I think we can all
safely say that many of our greatest joys in life can be associated with times
spent with our loved ones. Why not plan a vacation where your group of loved
ones can share together in complete privacy while also enjoying some different
As we face these changing times, we invite you to come to Costa Rica and experience just a little piece of its pura vida and the exuberant nature surrounding our villa. In Manuel Antonio and at Villa Perezoso, you will be able to relax and enjoy travel with peace of mind. By renting Villa Perezoso, your family or group of close friends can practice social distancing amid the natural isolation of the rain forest, while enjoying magnificent views of the ocean. You will be provided the pampering of an all-inclusive resort, but with complete privacy. After 11 years of hosting guests, our vacation home has become a place of solace and relaxation not only for our personal family and friends, but for so many other families and travel groups to Costa Rica. Now, more than ever, we are committed to bringing you a truly exclusive and private vacation experience.
As the world settles into re-opening, it seems that some of
the chaos continues in the United States and around the globe. 2020 has proven to be a challenging and
monumental year, and without a doubt, one we will all look back on in history. There
has never been a better time to stop and think, to look around, and to
appreciate what we have, while also being compassionate to what others may not
have. After several months of shelter in place and closed businesses, many of
us have developed cabin fever, or frustration in one way or another, while at
the same time forming a simpler life and a deeper bond as well as new routines
with the people we share our daily lives with. At this point, we all need
something different we can look forward to. One thing that our families,
friends and our past guests have repeatedly shared with us during this time is that
they are looking forward to future travel plans. For those who love travel as much as we do,
it’s easy to understand that once you have experienced the culture, the
delicious foods, and the richness of nature that Costa Rica offers, it’s
impossible to not want to return!
There is something special about traveling to a new place and then returning later and getting to know it in greater depth. For those who have been fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica, you have seen it grow and change and yet you can still appreciate the way it holds true to its customs, while revering, more than anything, it’s love for welcoming people from abroad. Travel to Costa Rica isn’t just about the beauty of the country, the extreme pampering you will receive at Villa Perezoso, or the relaxation you will feel while your stress quickly subsides in the “pura vida” philosophy. No, a Costa Rica vacation is about more. It’s about a complete travel experience that allows you to feel at peace from start to finish. It’s a healing process. A healing process from the stress of daily life, from the fast-pace we all manage and from constant interruptions.
Nature is perhaps the greatest healer and the most
reassuring friend we can have. Just a glimpse at one of the beautiful natural
settings throughout Costa Rica will excite you in new ways, while also sending
a wave of calm through you. The natural
beauty that abounds in this tropical country is enough to ease your anxieties and
give you a much greater sense of perspective. Here you aren’t bound by the
trappings of buildings and fancy highway systems or a densely populated civilization.
No, here you can simply relax and be at peace with nature and the beautiful
people of this country we love so much.
And of course, much of the richness of the travel experience
takes place outside of the time you are actually traveling. It happens before
the trip, while you are dreaming of vacation and making your travel plans. It happens
after the trip when you recall all your memories and look at photos, and share your
stories with friends and family. The
travel experience continues as you further research certain aspects of what you
learned and saw on your trip. And the
final stage of the travel experience comes when you start to plan your next
adventure. So, after being cooped up for several months, what better time to
look forward to a future vacation and to plan than now? Right now is a great time to plan your next
adventure and also take advantage of the travel promotions
that are being offered.
Here in Costa Rica, you can travel with ease and with peace
of mind. At Villa Perezoso you can let
your worries subside. From the time you land in this amazing country to the
time you depart, your vacation itinerary will be seamlessly executed, all with
your peace of mind at the forefront of what we do. We understand that part of
your peace of mind comes from the trust you have placed in us as a lodging
destination, knowing that you are going to a location that has implemented security
and health measures, not just at our beloved Villa Perezoso, but also as a
whole country, as a destination that wants nothing more than to welcome you
back! And as we have mentioned before, you can feel comfortable knowing that
our staff, and all of the tourism providers we work with have entered into a
protocol of daily team wellness checks, the use of protective equipment, rigorous
disinfection, safe distancing measures and food safety protocols. So for now, all
you need to do is to get here. We’ll handle the rest. Even making sure that we
point out the daily sloth and monkey visits as you relax and ease into a
rejuvenating and peaceful vacation.
re-opening begins to take shape and we start to get out more, we may find
ourselves thinking slowly about our next possible vacation. And while many of us may not be planning to
jump on a plane or take a trip right away, some of us are ready for a
much-needed getaway, while others are still free to dream and to plan for the
future! After all, it’s always nice to
consider options and be reminded of the joy travel has brought us in the past. For those who are ready, or are considering a
vacation in the near future, we want to reassure you that our secluded vacation
home is the ideal location for you as we continue to move through this health
crisis. Not only has Costa Rica been
rated as one of the best locations for its management of the health crisis, but
it has also been noted as one of the safest locations given the steps it has taken
to protect the future integrity of tourism. In addition, with vacation rentals
being rated as safer than hotels in current health surveys, a getaway to Villa
Perezoso may be just what the doctor ordered!
Perezoso, we remain optimistic about the future and look forward to
sharing our amazing piece of tropical paradise with you whenever the time is
right. In the meantime, we have been working hard to re-do our operational
details, with your safety and comfort in mind.
During this planning period, we have been re-training staff and
implementing the highest sanitary cleaning protocols. We have worked together with specialists in
occupational health, and are also following standards as recommended by the international
vacation rental association and the CDC.
Our staff have also been instructed on the proper use of masks and
gloves (sloth design included on the face masks!). New cleaning products have been selected and
tested so that each and every guest of Villa Perezoso can feel confident that
the home has been thoroughly sanitized and disinfected prior to their
check-in. At the same time, we will
always insure that staff of the villa are healthy before coming to work each
day. Our top priority, in addition to
making sure you relax (and spot monkeys!), will be keeping you confident and
comfortable throughout your stay.
After 11 years of hosting guests, our vacation home has
become a place of solace and relaxation not only for our personal family and
friends, but for so many other families and travel groups to Costa Rica. We are
more committed than ever to bringing you a truly exclusive and private vacation
experience. And since there really is no better way to practice social
distancing on vacation than staying at a private residence where you and your
group are secluded with dedicated staff, our sincere hope is that we can
be a place where memories are shared and where vacation experiences will be cherished
for many years to come.
forward to connecting with you again, sharing the serenity of Costa Rica and its
amazing nature with you, and once again appreciating the joy of travel. When
you are ready to travel, we’ll be ready to serve you as we’ve done since we
opened the doors to our home in 2009. If
you decide you’d like to visit soon, remember our current travel specials
for visits now through December 15th.
