This Guanacaste beach apartment offers comfort, privacy, and a genuine sense of a home away from home, just a couple of minutes’ walk from Danta Beach.

If the colonial exterior of this vacation apartment in Las Catalinas is stunning, its integrated interior living spaces are a delightful surprise. The owner’s London origins and many travels influence everything from the world atlas in the kitchen to the different sitting and dining options, with eclectic ideas, playful touches, and unexpected notes of color. And yet, it all works.

These traits are shared with the sleeping spaces, where chic simplicity meets sophisticated color variations, whether in its distinctly British Master Bedroom, with an ensuite bathroom and an open door to the lush dry forest of Las Catalinas, or in its two other bedrooms, made with comfort in mind and each featuring completely different color palettes. All rooms feature Queen beds.

Set between plazas, fountains, and trees, this beach flat in Plaza Carlota represents a bit of the Old World in the New World, a great home in Las Catalinas to come together after a day at the beach. Up to 8 guests can be accommodated in this Guanacaste rental and children are welcome.

Las Catalinas

Surrounded by tropical nature on land and at sea, Las Catalinas is a beautiful, car-free, fully walkable beach town in Costa Rica. The purpose is to create a way of life that is healthy, sustainable, fulfilling, and fun. Definitely one of the most fun things to do at Las Catalinas is simply to explore the town. Most of the streets are made for people. Every little passage seems to lead to a beautiful plaza or a view of the ocean.

Baranda Villas Collection

Charming residences, friendly service, and thoughtful amenities make this the best way to embrace life in town. Baranda is comprised of studios, flats, and up to six bedroom homes with remarkable locations in town, all just a short walk away from the beach, as well as town’s restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities.

Boogie Boarding

Playa Danta is one of the best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches you will ever find. Go at medium to low tides when the beach is very flat. The swells are typically moderate, safe, spaced 15 seconds apart, and perfectly formed. These waves are unlike anything many of us have seen in other parts of the world. Costa Rica has many famous surfing beaches but Las Catalinas is partially sheltered from the prevailing southern swell, and that is what makes Playa Danta “just right” for boogie boarding.


Some of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica is right at Las Catalinas. The best spots are wherever you see rocks: the far side of Playa Dantita, the reef in between Danta and Dantita, along the shore of Punta Penca, or out at the Islotes Pitahayas islands just offshore. You’ll find lots of reef fish, coral, interesting underwater topography, big spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and who knows what else.

Kayaking and Paddle-Boarding

Las Catalinas is an ideal location for sea kayaking and stand up paddle-boarding. The protected bay of Playa Danta is perfect for beginners and often offers glassy smooth conditions. The Islotes Pitahayas just one kilometer offshore are a great destination with the swell surging dramatically on the rocks. The islands are a famous nesting site of pelicans and frigate birds. The coastline in both directions is dramatic and interesting with a variety of beautiful beaches, cliffs and great snorkeling and swimming all within paddling range.

Yoga and Fitness

With an average temperature of 74 degrees year round, Las Catalinas is the perfect place to get in a fitness groove. Weather it's weekly interval training classes, beach front yoga under an almendro tree, or grabbing some weights, this is a mecca for athletes and yogis alike.

Shopping and Dining

In the shops of Las Catalinas, you’ll find everything you need to elevate your stay in town. Get outfitted to enjoy town and outdoors, set a course to learn about ocean protection, bring home an unexpected Costa Rican gift, give some local life and flair to your home, or relax and take care of your body. It’s all here, and it’s all within a few minutes’ walk.

Guanacaste is quickly becoming a major player in Costa Rica’s culinary scene, and Las Catalinas offers some of the best options around available just a few steps from your front door.
