The Province of Puntarenas region

The region where Finca Estrella's rental houses are located boasts the two main contrasting towns of Golfito and Paso Canoas. Golfito, with its colonial-style mansions left over from the banana industry and duty-free shopping area, also boasts the local airstrip (just an hour to fly to San Jose for international flights). Its marinas are the hub of sport fishing in the area and the quesadillas at Banana Bay Marina are a 'must eat'! Boat trips are available through the mangroves, to the wild animal refuge, Orchid House, or over to the Osa Pensinsula where the famous Corcovado National Park is located.

Paso Canoas is the nearby chaotic border town with Panama. It's an experience if you fancy doing some duty free shopping but otherwise just drive through it on the way to the pretty mountain town of San Vito, admiring the views back to the coast as you wind your way up the steep climbs.

Pavones with its fantastic surf, lazy rivers, wild black sand beaches, yoga classes and vegetarian cafes and Zancudo, home to the fishing lodge, are the most well-known beach areas in the region, both sleepy spots that are still villages really.

Although hot all year, the dry season runs from December to April then the rains start again, mainly for an hour or so in the afternoon, which signals the arrival of the 'green season' when flowering plants and trees flourish and the much awaited mango season arrives. Rains reach a peak in October and then start to fade.


If you head south down the 'new beach road' past the high rises of Jaco, turning right when you reach Rio Claro de Golfito you will eventually reach Pavones Bay (Bahia Pavon) , the sleepy little untouched region hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy spots where Finca Estrella and its rental houses are located. It is often said that this is where the 'real' Costa Rica is found with its wild black sand palm-lined beaches, fantastic surf and unbeatable views across to the Osa Peninsula and to the volcanoes in Panama. A quiet bay within a gulf, the Golfo Dulce, the sheltered spot is a haven for all types of sea life from the turtles that nest on the beaches to the whales and dolphins that are often spotted in the waters

The recently reintroduced scarlet macaws are flourishing, birdlife is plentiful, monkeys and sloths are regularly seen from the roadside. There are lazy rivers to swim in, horses to adventure on, hikes to waterfalls, watersports and yoga classes to try out or simply get away from it all and chill in a hammock by the swimming pool.
