For those in the know, Papagayo is synonymous with paradise. The natural environment around this magical area of Costa Rica provides ample opportunities to gaze at beautiful butterflies, monkeys, iguanas and colorful foliage. Within this idyllic setting, you will find El Alma, a stunning modern luxury vacation rental that offers breathtaking views of the hillside down to the beach and oceanfront.

This private villa features an outstanding infinity swimming pool with an adjacent viewing deck equipped with sun beds and a parasol. The grounds at El Alma also feature a plunge pool and an alfresco dining area for eight. Indoor perks include an ice maker, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and ceiling fans.

The interiors of El Alma feature sleek contemporary furnishings and a decorative scheme that conjures a Zen-like sense of tranquility. Somewhere between illusion and artwork, the wooden spiral staircase represents a pièce de résistance. High ceilings and sliding floor-to-ceiling windows keep the feelings airy and breezy throughout this architectural gem.

Three immaculate bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms accommodate up to six guests at this non-smoking villa. All of the suites provide air conditioning, ceiling fans and access to a balcony or terrace with dazzling ocean views. With comfortable bedding and only the finest linens and accoutrements, you will be sleeping in style! We recommend El Alma for a family holiday, a decadent honeymoon or an unforgettable wedding.

One of the fairways of the wonderful 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by Arnold Palmer is within view of the villa and is just a short walk to the clubhouse. Surfers should be sure to check out Witches Rock, one of the most popular beaches to ‘hang ten’ in the world. Nearby Playa Grande is also well known for surfing and being a nesting ground for leatherback turtles. The calm cove of Playa del Coco is ideal for children and beginner swimmers. For the more adventurous, many of Papagayo’s secluded beaches can be reached by canoe or sea kayak. With sparkling sands dancing with hermit crabs and monkeys calling out as you sunbathe, don’t forget to make time to catch one of those unforgettable Costa Rican sunsets!
