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

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

Without question, we have entered into unchartered waters, and each of us is scrambling to address an ever-growing health crisis while also attending to our finances, our families, our personal life and attempting to evaluate what the future holds. While the latter is impossible, here at Villa Perezoso we are weathering the storm and making use of the time. We have taken proactive steps to join together with the local tourism industry to implement changes for when the time comes to once again welcome travelers to our tropical oasis. At Villa Perezoso, we have a dedicated team with whom we have implemented new cleaning and sanitation protocols, new guest service interaction rules and new protocols for the maintenance of all internal and external areas. As we move through this crisis, guest comfort and safety will continue to be our #1 priority.
According to the ICT, Costa Rica’s tourism board, over 3
million tourists visit our peaceful and beautiful country every year and 30% of
the Costa Rican work force comes from tourism, with more than 80% of the
tourism sector related to boutique establishments and family-owned businesses,
like our very own Villa Perezoso. With
numbers like these, it is easy to understand why tourism is the heart of our
community and why the COVID-19 health crisis has affected everyone so
As of March 18th, Costa Rica’s democratic
government, made the decision to close its borders to in-coming tourists. This decision was difficult for our
tourism-based country to swallow, but it was a decision that was fully
supported by everyone, both business owners and local citizens alike, who know
that this immediate sacrifice will produce future benefits. With the excellent leadership of our health
minister, a doctor and a master in public health and epidemiology, in
conjunction with the unified spirit of all Costa Ricans, who want nothing more
than to be able to welcome back tourists, we have been on a stay-at-home call
to action for 2 weeks now. To date we have just under 350 cases and no reported
cases in our beloved Manuel Antonio.
While we know the numbers are bound to change with time, we feel
confident we are staying ahead of the curve and doing our best to keep the
numbers low. Our entire community is
working together for the future health and prosperity of our tourism-based
businesses and for the health and safety of our families.
As we wait to turn the corner, we relish on the simple things;
abounding nature, tropical fruits, warm weather, sunshine and most of all,
things calm down, and we know they will, we will be waiting with open doors at
Villa Perezoso to welcome you back. With
its rich nature and focus on tranquility, no doubt Costa
Rica will offer a safe, private and much-needed escape.
From our family to yours, we wish you continued
health and peace during this time.
