Casa Riomar

Casa Riomar is located in the village of Pavones on the South West tip of Costa Rica. The Magic of Riomar is that you have your own private access way to the beach and surf break! Its location makes it the first part of Costa Rica's Pacific coast that sees swells that come from South America. Riomar is available for rent on a daily, weekly or monthly basis throughout the year. The house sleeps up to six people comfortably. It is equipped with all one needs to have a relaxing home away from home.

There is a full service kitchen, air conditioning, Internet access, floor safe for valubles, large outdoor patio and an outdoor shower with hot water that are all constructed with western standards in mind. RioMar has it's own laundry facilites and a large private surfboard locker to keep your equiptment cozy.

The villa is nestled at the foot or the rio claro, a pristine river that flows year round into the ocean nearby. Riomar is surrounded by lush tropical trees and flowers that host an abundance of wild animals (don't worry, they won't bite). You will bring in each new day with a symphony of birds singing in the garden for you. Some animals you are bound to see in the Riomar garden are iguanas, garobos, macaws, monkeys, parrots, toucans, egrets, sea eagles and if you have a sharp eye at night, kinkajous!

Pavones Village

Pavones is a small quiet village that is the ideal place to get away from it all. It has a few markets as well as weekly visits by the local Mennonites that come on Fridays to sell a host of bakery items that are all good! The Saturday farmers market is a great time to stock up on produce as well. There are also restaurants serving everything from Tico dishes to natural food. The cantina is also a favorite hangout due to its location on the water with a killer view of the surf break. As you can imagine, there is a surf shop that is open all year long. They have whatever you might need such as new and used boards, rentals and a repair service. Go to the FAQ page for more information about the village. Here is the location on Google Earth.

...More than Surf

Besides surfing, Pavones has many other activities for you to take advantage of. To name a few: hiking at Tiskita Nature Reserve, fishing, snorkeling, horseback riding, biking, bird watching, and yoga.
