Private Luxury Costa Rica Getaway
Canyoning with Family in Costa Rica


Not only is Costa Rica a wonderful retreat destination for an entertaining, adventurous or relaxing family vacation, but the country also provides many educational opportunities. Your kids won’t even realize how much they’re learning about these topics during your trip:

  • Conservation: Costa Rica is home to many species that aren’t found elsewhere. An unforgettable natural experience, Manuel Antonio Park is just minutes from the villa and was voted by Forbes as one of the Top 13 Best Parks around the world. While at the park, take the opportunity to teach your children about the importance of conserving endangered species and respecting their environment. Plan to visit more than once during your family vacation rental experience in Costa Rica — the ecosystem changes every time you stop by, and you never know which rainforest inhabitants might come out to greet you.
  • Flora & Fauna: About 5% of the world’s biodiversity is found in Costa Rica — that means there are approximately 615 species of tropical, exotic and wild flora & fauna per 10,000 square kilometers in the country. With 26 protected forests, 20 national parks, nine forest reserves, eight wildlife refuges, seven wildlife sanctuaries and one national archaeological monument, Costa Rica is the perfect place to teach your children about the extent of the world’s wildlife, and how each place has its own unique ecosystem.
  • Culture: Like any other travel experience, you can use your family vacation to Costa Rica as an opportunity to expose your children to a different culture. Depending on their ages, you could spend time talking with locals, exploring smaller towns and learning some basic, conversational Spanish. Many tours are available to explain some of the country’s most pertinent pieces of history, such as the Villa Vanilla Tour. This tour takes you through one of Costa Rica’s most significant spice plantations, with guides explaining the spices origins’, traditional uses and other historic facts. You’ll also be able to smell, touch and taste the spices and essential oil plants in the field.

Close Proximity to Wildlife in Luxury Villa


The villa estate is also within minutes of golden-sand beaches, as well as a marina that offers water sports and activities. You can also surf, so if water is important to your family members, they’ll appreciate our exceptional proximity to water and water activities. And because the villas are located in the jungle and near the coast, you’ll get to see exotic wildlife, such as squirrel monkeys, sloths, parrots, and toucans.

Kids love being able to talk about their exotic family retreat vacation and all the creatures they saw along the way. Of course, adults love this aspect of being in Costa Rica, too. But if pure adventure is what you’re looking for, Manuel Antonio offers activities such as:

  • Canopy Zip Lining: See the rainforest in a unique and exciting way during your family vacation getaway! You’ll be safely attached to the zip line and whiz past some of the lushest forests you can imagine. Watch as the greenery speeds past, and listen for the tropical inhabitants’ chirping, singing, chattering and warbling.
  • Parasailing: This is not your average parasailing! In Costa Rica, our area of the world produces tropical, warm breezes and incredible turquoise waters. Get a bird’s eye view of the lush verdant forest and incredible isthmus of Manuel Antonio from your perch as you sail above the surf with ease.
  • Catamaran Tour: People of all ages love to explore the fantastic coastline by catamaran! Catamaran tours host both private and public groups, have a staffed bar onboard and feature long winding slides for kids as well as other family water fun. You’ll find yourself surrounded by Costa Rica’s playful dolphins, sea turtles and colorful fish!
  • Fishing: Sport fishing is huge part of the Costa Rican culture. Not only does the nearby fishing marina hold many world titles for its exceptional opportunities, but being able to sport fish helps you bond with friends — current and new. Plus, you’ll go home with plenty of “big fish” stories!

NOTE: If you’re not sure if someone in your party is able to handle specific kinds of activities, just ask any of your expert concierge staff at the Villa Punto de Vista estate. We’re happy to ensure what you offer to family members on your retreat vacation is appropriate for their abilities.

Rooftop Pool in Private Villa


We all lead such busy lifestyles that it can be tough to drop everything and just “be.” That’s why a family retreat vacation is such an affordable luxury. Not only can you put down your devices and talk like loving family members, but you can make happy memories with the people who matter most in your life.


The Villa Punto de Vista estate has amenities and services that can please and accommodate every member of your clan. For guests who require ease of access, the estate has an elevator, accessible washrooms and showers, ramps, and a beach buggy that can transport family members to and from the beach. Unlike other Costa Rica rentals, we’ve designed the estate to ensure that no one gets left out due to accessibility needs.

Gallery Room in Private Luxury Villa


For tech-savvy guests, our family villas are equipped with the latest technology, including:

  • A Playstation 4
  • Wall-mounted iPads
  • Wi-Fi
  • An iMac computer and printer
  • A 10-foot movie screen

One of the greatest things about our retreat rentals is the plethora of social spaces and common areas where your family can gather and enjoy each other’s company. This includes the game room, the family room, and the rooftop lounge, and a fourth-floor dining terrace where breakfast is served.


Stunning Costa Rican Wildlife

Whether it’s falling asleep to the sound of chattering monkeys outside your bedroom window or participating in one of our local tours and activities, the Villa Punto de Vista Estate’s most exclusive amenity is our proximity to the diverse wildlife of Costa Rica.

The villas sit above the tree canopy within a Natural Animal Corridor adjacent to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Throughout your vacation, you and your family are surrounded by tropical wildlife. Come into daily contact with animals of all kinds on your once-in-a-lifetime Costa Rica family vacation.

Beneath the lush shade of the jungle, you’ll be in good company. Sightings of three species of monkeys, three-toed sloths, fluorescent frogs, iguanas, colorful toucans and tropical birds are included. Kids who seldom get to experience the beauty of nature will love seeing all the wild animals found in this gorgeous, tropical backdrop. From the exotic to the adorable, you and your family will never forget your vacation experience with Costa Rican wildlife.


Villa Punto de Vista is in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, where the average daytime temperature is around 82.5 F, and the average nighttime temperature is about 70 F. In other words, it’s as close as you can get to paradise on earth! Our Costa Rica family retreat is situated above the canopy, giving you year-round, unparalleled 360-degree views of everything from the chattering monkeys in the trees to the lapping waves on the shore. The town is named for the adjacent world-renowned Manuel Antonio National Park, which has some of the world’s best beaches, incredible hiking trails through wildlife habitats and rainforest, and is a great place to get in some outdoor time with the family.

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. Many tears were shed at checkout as we were sad it had to end, but so very happy it happened.

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...

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the villa adults-only?

Villa Punto de Vista is not just for adults! We welcome all ages and love our younger guests. We even have some complimentary kiddie gear available, like pack-and-plays, high chairs, pool toys, board games, Sony PlayStation 4, etc.

That said, if you want it to be an adults-only retreat, you have that flexibility! As the villas are only rented to one group at a time, it’s up to you how you want to plan your vacation.

Does Villa Punto de Vista accommodate multigenerational family trips?

We don’t just accommodate them, we love to host every generation from young to old. As such, we’ve built the villa with accessibility in mind. 

Parents can retreat to the privacy of their suites for naptime. Grandparents can easily access family dinners via our commercial elevators. Our main goal is that no one has to miss out on a thing and you can have a safe and comfortable space to make memories together.
