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.
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

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

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
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!
