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!

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!

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!
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,

Manuel Antonio coastline. There is no better way to relax than on a
private boat in one of the world’s most beautiful places!

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!

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…
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

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
