Magnificent property for a truly magical event

Everything was beyond perfect. Every view, room, and feature completely breathtaking. Each day was better than the next. All of our guests were in awe and jaws were dropped with every corner turned. The staff was absolutely incredible and we’ve never felt better taken care of. And most importantly, all of our friends and family remarked on it being amongst the best experiences of their lives.

Everything we expected and more!

We are a group of 6 couples aged 40-60 who travel 5 star and stay in luxury villas often. Punto de Vista was one of our favorites. It started with Gloriela months before assisting with our itinerary and provisions. The professionalism and attention to detail were impeccable. Upon our arrival, we were blown away with the architecture and how well laid out the villa is. It’s absolutely picturesque. The location couldn’t be better as it sits right in the middle of nature at its finest. Monkeys, sloths and Tucans surrounded us daily. The beach was a beautiful 10 minute walk...

What airport do you fly into for Manuel Antonio?

Do they speak English in Costa Rica?

While Costa Rica’s official language is Spanish, many “Ticos” (the loving slang term for Costa Ricans) understand and speak English quite well. They are known for their easy-to-understand accent. Even if they do not speak English that well, Ticos will always try to communicate warmly with the best Pura Vida attitude!

Plus, our team speaks English, so you’ll have a translator for anything you need and will be able to communicate seamlessly with your pre-arrival concierge and property staff.
