Lovely boutique hotel in the hills of Matapalo
Las Nubes is a luxurious boutique hotel where you can enjoy great food and relax at the beautiful pool. It's an ideal destination to indulge before flying back to your home country or it makes a great start of your travels in Costa Rica.
This unique boutique hotel is located on the edge of a valley, some 2500 meters above sea level. If you follow the road down from the hotel you'll end up in the charming village of San Gerardo de Dota, which is famous for its trout and the mythic quetzal. A guided tour to spot this fantastic bird is a must!
Altijd al de unieke quatzal vogel met eigen ogen willen zien? Dat kan vanuit San Gerardo de Dota. Dit charmante dorpje ligt in één van de mooiste gebieden van Costa Rica, op slechts 85 km van San José. Vanuit de hoofdstad doorkruis je Cerro de la Muerte, de bergketen die de Caribische en Pacifische kust van elkaar scheidt; een prachtige route!
Waking up from the sounds of the ocean and enjoying your breakfast in front of your luxurious tent, that's in short what you'll be experiencing when glamping in the little coastal village of Matapalo! Matapalo is an authentic Costa Rican town with few tourists, a couple of nice restaurants and a great beach. It's the perfect location to relax and enjoy Costa Rica's Pura Vida!
You find the charming, little village of Ojochal near the National Park Marino Ballena and the largest nature reserve of Costa Rica: Corcovado. From Ojochal or nearby Uvita you can go whale and dolphin watching, in September there's even a whale watching festival! Do enjoy sun, sea and the beach in Playa Tortuga and Las Ventanas.
Dominical is a true surfer's paradise. During your stay here it is highly recommended to test the waters and take a surf lesson! Of course, you can also relax on the beach. Your lodge is located near the village on the beach and also offers a fine pool (since the ocean can be rough at times). It is a great place to explore the jungle with enthusiastic, local (English speaking) guides, canopy tours and other activities.
