9. What Our Guests Say

Don’t take our word for it, ask a guest! We will be glad to supply you with contact information for previous guests. And they love to talk about their experiences at Flying Toucans. We also have lots of reviews posted on Trip Advisor, VRBO, Homeaway, etc. Or take a peek at some actual comments from our guest book.

8.  The Beaches

Besides the beach on our point that you can hike to, there are numerous beaches north and south of us, all having their own unique personality and advantages. Some are miles long, others are small and crescent-shaped. There are swimming beaches, surfing beaches, shell-collecting beaches. Beaches with caves, mangroves, waterfalls, fresh stream outlets. The Whale’s Tail has an excellent beach for youngsters- it’s shallow, gentle and sand only.  Discover a new beach every day or go back to one of your favorites! See our Beach page.

7. The Dominical Area

Being located on the Central Pacific coast has gifted us with the perfect balance between the lushness of southern Costa Rica (without the lengthy rains) and the sunshine of northern Costa Rica (without the dry, hot and dusty conditions that are prevalent there).  The weather is great here year round and there is plenty to do without the “touristy” feel. Known for surfing, nature and numerous outdoor activities, this area has something for everyone.  There are plenty of international and local dining options as well as shopping and banks.

   Why Choose Flying Toucans

1. The View

The view alone should seal your decision: it’s breathtaking! To see the combination of the Pacific ocean with its’ tranquil bays and waves rolling onto the sandy beaches, jungle-clad mountains and ever changing colors and clouds all from one location will give you the sense of being in the Garden of Eden. We traveled extensively throughout Costa Rica before we chose this spot and now we’d like to share it with you. This is one view that looks incredible regardless of the season.  Skip the other reasons and stay here just for the view. 

2. The Villa

Flying Toucans is unlike anywhere you’ve ever

stayed before. Every room offers exquisite views

while offering the amenities of a luxury home. It

has been landscaped with various ornamental

trees and flowers, not only for your enjoyment,

but to attract our wildlife.

If you’re looking for high tech gadgets and tvs in every room, you won’t find them here. The goal of Flying Toucans is to provide an environment that feasts on nature, easygoing conversations and ultimate relaxation while leaving the stress of the world behind.

3. The Pool

Excellently situated with respect to the view and just three steps from the villa, the 25’ long cascading infinity-edge and turquoise tile makes you believe that you are part of the oceanscape. Our tropical climate means the pool is usable 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! Turn the lights off, lounge in a float and watch the abundant stars at night. One of our most common guest comments is that they rarely got out of the pool!

4. The Wildlife

The property attracts many different types of wildlife, many of which you have never seen in the wild. Many of our guests have commented that Flying Toucans itself attracts more wildlife than any places they visit while visiting our area.  It’s not unusual to have a group of Howler monkeys on one side of the house and a group of White-faced Capuchin monkeys on the other - at the same time! Not to mention Tarzan, our residential sloth and the numerous toucans flying just feet above the pool.

5. The Location

Within 200 meters of the shore and about 150 feet in elevation, we are one of the closest to the water of any luxury vacation home rentals in the area.  Hear the ocean, watch the moon rise over the bay and see the occasional whales and dolphins from the home without needing binoculars. Level and well-maintained roads ensure quick, stress-free access to Flying Toucans. We are just a minute from the main road, making it easy to come and go as often as you wish whereas accessing homes on the mountainside can be time-consuming and a challenge if dark or wet.

6. Privacy and Service

Surrounded by unobstructed views of the ocean and jungle, get ready to enjoy your home-away- from-home in total peace and privacy.  While our managers and staff are dedicated to making your stay the best it can be, they do not live on the property. They are easily available to help you with recommendations for dining and activities and are always ready to address any situation requiring attention. Previous guests have nothing but good to say about our friendly, knowledgable managers.
