“A dream”Feb 06, 2016
Reviewed January 17, 2015
My mother and I went to Costa Rica in Jan 2014 and stayed here. I LOVED it! So much that we are going back in February this year and taking friends! I loved the resort! The rooms were cozy and the beds were very comfy! The wildlife was all OVER! Macaws, toucans, monkeys, kinkajous, crabs, basilisks, iguanas, butterflies… Everything! The buffet had great food! Both beaches were beautiful. Playa Mantas had hermit crabs, fiddler crabs, and a rock full of fossils! At low tide, we could cross to Playa Blanca. During normal ride, a shuttle took us to Playa Blanca. The drivers were always amazing! The staff were great. Some didn’t speak much english, but it IS a Spanish country! Alex is amazing with the birds and night walk! Book ahead because the tours fill fast! Playa Blanca has amazing snorkelling opportunities. TONS of fish! I saw probably 20 or more species just 10 feet into the ocean! Punta Leona is close to Jaco, Teracoles, San Jose and Puntarenas, which makes travel easy. We took the Crocodile Man Boat tour at the Teracoles and went out to Tortuga Island with the Pura Vida Princess tour out of Herradura. I HIGHLY recommend Punta Leona!
