Villa Mango is a new luxury home ready for your vacation in a tropical wonderland! We are located on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, just south of Dominical in the beautiful Escaleras Mountain range at an elevation of 1200 feet overlooking the ocean. Imagine waking up to sounds of the rainforest... our streams and gentle waterfalls, the calls of howler monkeys, the songs of toucans and many other tropical birds just outside of your window. Villa Mango is set in three and a half private acres of tropical splendor! We have an onsite English/Spanish speaking manager, who is also an artist, available to facilitate your needs. High-speed internet access included, 24/7!
With 3000+ square feet of living space on two levels, Villa Mango offers large wrap-around covered terraces, queen-size Swiss orthopedic beds in each room (can be separated to singles). Designed for six people, but comfortably accommodating eight, Villa Mango may be rented together with Casa Amigos to host up to 14 guests.
Villa Mango is located about 50 km. (30 miles) south of Quepos, seven km. (five miles) South from Dominical on the beautiful Southern-Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica -- 175 km (110 miles) southwest of San Jose (Costa Rica's capital city, near the International Airport.) We recommend driving to our Villas via the "mountain route" an approximately three and a half hour beautiful drive (on well-paved roads!) through incredible landscapes, varied micro-climates, and exquisite "above-the-clouds" mountain and ocean views. An alternative is to fly from San Jose to Palmar Sur (via Sansa or Nature Air Airlines), about 45 minutes from "Paradise Costa Rica". Vickie, our property manager can pick you up and assist you in renting a vehicle in Dominical. It is also possible to fly from San Jose to Quepos and pre-arrange to pick up a vehicle from that location. (We advise renting a four wheel drive vehicle to allow you to explore many of the beautiful "out-of-the-way" sites in the area.)
The Dominical area has a average temperature of 83F (28C) and is delightful year round. There is a "dry" season from November through April. During the rest of the year, the mornings are usually sunny but it may rain in the afternoon. While Costa Rica is a tropical wonderland all year, many nature lovers find the lush "green" season especially beautiful. Thanks to our mountain-side 1200 feet elevation, guests at Villa Mango enjoy year-round comfortable mountain breezes.
Dominical is a small coastal village (population approximately 600). People are easy-going, and the relaxed atmosphere is contagious! There are various cozy bars and a surprising variety of casual restaurants and "sodas" (local food). Later in the night, some of these restaurants change into small-scale discoteques, where "Ticos" (native Costa Ricans) and vacationers dance to Latin music. In the past few years, a number of wonderful restaurants have opened in our area, including Thai, Italian, Continental, Indonesian, Mexican and French... all in beautiful tropical settings. Shops in the area include a gift store, clothes boutique, small grocery store, fruit stands, and a bakery. Dominical and many beautiful secluded beaches are just a quick drive "down the mountain" from Villa Mango.
Villa Mango is ideally situated. You may want to just relax on our large panoramic ocean-view balconies, swim in our 48 foot lap swimming pool, and enjoy our lush tropical landscaping. You may also want to take advantage of the many varied attractions in our area.
*Please Note: We also have another 3 bedroom/3 bathroom villa in the same location, Casa Amigos. With 2000+ square feet of living space on two levels, with its own private lap-pool, Casa Amigos offers a fully equipped kitchen, and the same amenities as Villa Mango, for example large "wrap around" terrace, queen-size Swiss orthopedic beds (can be separated to singles.) Designed for two to six people, Casa Amigos may be rented together with Villa Mango to accomodate up to 14 guests. Please visit our website (link listed below.)
