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!
After a much-needed break and some green season home improvements to beautify the villa for the upcoming season, all of us at Villa Perezoso are back and looking forward to the upcoming 2021! With the holidays right around the corner, we know everyone up North is soon going to be busy making delicious meal plans and cozying up against the cooler evenings. Meanwhile down here in paradise, we are beginning to make travel plans with different groups of guests we have coming after the new year. So, while we’re busy making travel arrangements, we thought we’d take a moment and share some perfect getaway ideas in case you are interested in taking a little escape to our tropical haven anytime soon. Whether it be for a long weekend getaway with your significant other, a family vacation with the kids, or a friends’ trip, here are 3 Costa Rica trips that are sure to give you that R&R that you need!

All of this and much more is available in Manuel Antonio. Known as the place that “has it all”, it’s no surprise that the Manuel Antonio beach has been named one of the world’s most beautiful by Forbes.

And remember that in case Mom and Dad want to get out one night for dinner on their own, we even have nanny service available!
Who is ready for a guys-only or girls-only trip?

Are you ready to travel again? This year has proven difficult for those of us who love to travel and revel in the joy that travel brings to our lives. We all know that vacation can provide you the reset you need as well as a fresh perspective when you return home.
If you’ve already had the pleasure of visiting Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica then you know that there is far too much to see and do in this fantastic town than what you can possibly experience in just one vacation. On the other hand, if you are new to the Manuel Antonio vacation scene, you may be wondering what the best things to schedule for your vacation are. Regardless of your travel style, there is something for everyone! Here, we’ve highlighted some ideas for the perfect Manuel Antonio vacation itinerary.
Day 1: Arrival to Costa Rica
Upon arrival to Costa Rica, one of our private vans can pick you up at the airport for about $200, depending on your group size. Charter flights are also available. The arrival process is seamless as our concierge can pre-coordinate an airport handler to assist you with collecting your baggage and going through Customs. Following that, the airport handler arranges for the van to be waiting for you right as you exit the airport. Once in the van, you will sit back and enjoy a scenic 2.20-hour ride to Villa Perezoso. You may even sip on drinks or munch on snacks along the way, if you have pre-ordered these with our Concierge. What better way to travel than with a drink in hand and amazingly beautiful scenery!
If you fancy sightseeing along the way, there are a couple of great stops. One is the Tarcoles Bridge or “Crocodile Bridge” as it is commonly known. This is the perfect pit stop and allows for observing large crocodiles in their natural habitat. Another great place to stop is in the town of Jaco. Here, you are just about 1 hour away from Manuel Antonio.
Upon arrival to Villa Perezoso, you will be greeted by our warm staff and a welcome cocktail! Once given the introduction to the villa, you will settle into your relaxing first night at your beautiful tropical villa. Perhaps a dip in the pool, dinner with our chef or a soak in the roof-top Jacuzzi will be the perfect way to bring on this vacation in style!
Day 2: Manuel Antonio National Park
You are sure to wake up to the sound of monkeys or scarlet macaws. Morning coffee can be enjoyed while observing wildlife and taking in the view of the Manuel Antonio National Park. Once you are ready to head out, we think the perfect way to get your bearings is to take a private guided tour of the park. Here you can enjoy one of the world’s most beautiful beachfront national parks and observe a plethora of exotic wildlife species. After your tour, stay inside the park and enjoy the many beaches that are available to visit. You will surely feel like you are in paradise here! After your visit to the park, either head back to the villa for a relaxing rooftop sunset or perhaps you’ll want to visit one of our favorite sunset restaurants in town. Just ask our Concierge for the best travel tips and local hot-spots…
Day 3: Zipline Adventure
Ready for a bit of action? No vacation to Villa Perezoso is complete without a zip through the rainforest treetops. This is a favorite among many visitors and is sure to give you a thrill and put a smile on your face! Plus, you’ll have great photo opp’s to remember for many years to come. For those who prefer something a bit more mellow, there are plenty of other options to partake in, such as hiking, visiting the calm waters of the Biesanz Beach or simply relaxing poolside and enjoying the view. Either option you chose will be complete with great scenery. Afterward, you’ll once again be ready for sunset cocktails or for dinner with our chef at the villa. Time to sit back and allow our chef to pamper your every whim and provide you one of the best and freshest meals you’ve ever had!
Day 4: Surfing
Costa Rica is known for having great waves and for being a fantastic place to learn to surf, to continue practicing, or for those who are already expert surfers. With several different breaks and locations available just a few minutes from the villa, your concierge can help you determine which option is best for your group, and can line up a surf instructor for private surfing lessons or get board rentals for you. For those who don’t wish to engage in surfing, we can have a tent, chairs and a cooler set up for you so you can observe while kicking back on the beach!
Day 5: White Water Rafting
Manuel Antonio offers fantastic rafting in Class II or III rivers very nearby. A ¾ day or full day rafting trip is a great way to spend one of your vacation days, and comes complete with a chance to get out into the countryside and experience the excitement of rafting. This day is best combined with private chef services upon return to the villa, as you will be arriving back just in time for sunset!
Day 6: Catamaran Sunset Cruise
Enjoy the Manuel Antonio coastline from a different perspective. Catamaran cruises can be private or public, and offer a wonderful opportunity to get out on the water, do some snorkeling and cruise the coastline. Dolphins are often spotted as well as other sea creatures. The calm waters of the Manuel Antonio coast will lull you into utter relaxation as you soak up the beauty of the coastline! Once off the boat, you may want to head back to the villa for some pool time and then perhaps head out on the town for a farewell dinner!
Day 7: (A Regretful) Departure from Paradise
All vacations must come to an end, and your departure will be as sad for our villa staff as it will be for you having to leave paradise! After a farewell with our staff, one of our private vans will pick you up and take you back to the airport, or you can also choose to take a private or regional flight back. No doubt, everyone at Villa Perezoso will be sad to see you go, but will look forward to seeing you back again soon!
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*

following special for our beautiful villa from now through December 19th!
*Excludes Thanksgiving. Does not include Chef, but can be added-on.

after the holidays for a Winter escape, we are offering 10% Off all reservations for
Winter 2021, excluding Easter Week,

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!
As traveler’s look for more ways to maximize on privacy
while still getting out and about on vacation, we thought you would want to
hear about these 5 totally private activities you can do while enjoying your
Manuel Antonio vacation stay with us at Villa Perezoso. With a local industry heavily-reliant on
tourism to succeed, one of the first areas of business for re-opening in Manuel
Antonio was traveler safety. As of
August 1st, Costa Rica will open it’s borders to Canada, The UK and
the European Union. In anticipation of the return of international tourism, we
have highlighted 5 of our favorite private activities.
National Park Tour
Imagine hiking through the rainforest with just you and your
travel group and a guide who has been fully trained in safety standards.
Monkeys? Check. Toucans? Also check. Scarlett Macaws? Of course. Sounds of the
ocean waves lapping against the sand in the back-drop? No trip to the Manuel
Antonio National Park would be complete without it. This fully private tour is a great way to get
outdoors and in touch with nature, without having to face crowds or do anything
too extreme. This is a wonderful
activity for people who like to walk, hike and enjoy wildlife. You also get a chance to stay inside of the
park and enjoy the beautiful and secluded beaches after the tour is over.
Looking for a bit more adventure and don’t mind getting a
bit wet? This fully-private tour is the
perfect mix between relaxation and adventure.
Usually between a Class II and Class III, rafting on the local Savegre
river is the perfect way to get away from it all with your private travel
group. You’ll float down areas that will
feel like a “lazy river” and then you’ll
have some excitement on some of the areas with rapids, plus you’ll take
a short hike to a waterfall and then have a fully private, a-la-carte lunch
back at the rafting lodge.
Feel like sitting back and being pampered on a private boat
while sipping a beverage and taking in the beauty of the Manuel Antonio
coastline? If so, this exclusive tour is
for you. Complete with a chef on-board,
you’ll be served drinks and lunch or dinner based on your selected tour
time. Enjoy searching for dolphins,
watching the sun set at sea, and touring through the different beaches of the
Manuel Antonio coastline. There is no better way to relax than on a
private boat in one of the world’s most beautiful places!
Hiking Trails to
Manuel Antonio beaches
Great for exercise and nature lovers, just a few minutes from
the villa are some of Costa Rica’s most breath-taking (and calorie-burning!)
trails. Complete with sweeping ocean
views, rain forest canopy and exotic wildlife, hiking here is a great way to
get out and experience the area’s natural beauty. Trails run the length of the Manuel Antonio
coastline and swerve in and out and up and down the various mountains along the
way. Visits to semi-private beaches are included at almost every stop, so don’t
forget to wear your swimsuit under your hiking clothes! Guides are available
for those who don’t want to navigate themselves. Either way you go, exploring the Manuel
Antonio coastline on foot is a spectacular activity to experience!
Get out on the water and up close with the Manuel Antonio
coastline. Enjoy beautiful coves and
docking at a semi-private beach for snorkeling and swimming. Jet skis tours can be done in the mornings or
the afternoons and will be exclusive for
your group and the guide. No better way
to be out on the water than on a jet ski!
You can also do private yoga and pilates classes, either at
our local wellness center, or out on our yoga deck overlooking the Manuel
Antonio National Park. Of course there are so many other fun and relaxing vacation
activities to do here, but these are a few of our favorites! So, if you’re in
need of a change of scenery, but reticent about getting outside of your travel
bubble, no need to worry any further! We’ve got you covered…
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.
Mother’s Day as many of us are looking forward to starting to put our lives
back together and getting back to work, we need to be reminded to take a moment
and remember Mom and everything she has done to keep us healthy, safe and loved
all these years. What better gift to
give Mom this Mother’s Day than a much-needed vacation escape? Sure, maybe now is not the exact time you’re
thinking of taking a vacation, but it will certainly be something to look
forward to and to be appreciated in the near future. And what better place to visit than Costa
