Cerca Del Mar is located on the northwestern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The region is one the most diverse and beautiful in a country overflowing with nature’s wonders. Tamarindo has been named one of the top beaches by Conde Nast Traveler and also earned the “Top Destination” designation for 2012 by Trip Advisor.
Cerca Del Mar sits in one of the most popular surfing destinations in the country, but even if you don’t have to surf, you will enjoy the beach, sailing, fishing, restaurants, and shopping. For those who are looking for more than a relaxing beach vacation, Costa Rica boasts one of the world’s greatest playgrounds for outdoor exploration. Visit Arenal volcano or the majestic Monte Verde cloud forest for sights pulled from the pages of National Geographic. Choose from hiking, white water rafting, float in thermal pools and visit hidden waterfalls. Choices abound. Even without leaving town the options are amazing. When in a surf mecca, why not give it a try.There are waves for all levels of experience. The area abounds with paddle boarding, jet skis, snorkeling on a sunset sailing cruise, or just floating with a drink in your hand on the most beautiful beach imaginable. Costa Rica also offers some of the best sport fishing in Central America and boats leave from Tamarindo every day.
Go zip lining through any one of several local tropical rain forests. Imagine seeing the jungle and beach on your own ATV or horseback. One of Casa Bekka’s greatest attributes is its proximity to the Tamarindo National Wildlife Refuge, which comprises 1,000 acres (400 ha) of dazzling protected forest, including abundant mangroves and estuaries. Tours of the fascinating plant and animal life can be arranged from Tamarindo, including canoe tours of costal habitats. Just north of town is the Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas, which offers visitors an opportunity to see the world’s largest reptile, the leather back turtle, come ashore to lay eggs.
Two championship golf courses are a short drive from the villa. This will truly be a once in a lifetime round of golf. Tamarindo offers an amazing selection of shopping, restaurants and even a small casino. Food choices range from hearty Costa Rican fare to elegant five star dining. There is an abundant supply of fresh local seafood, fruits and vegetables. Many restaurants face the beach, so while waiting for food, one can play in the sand or admire the beautiful sunset. The beauty of Cerca Del Mar is that you can also have a chef prepare a dinner party or romantic dinner for two in the villa itself. Once the day is done, and you think you have seen it all, take a walk across the street to Playa Langosta for the most amazing sunsets in the world.
