Palm Beach Estates is surrounded by the Marino Las Baulas National Park and this has prevented development in the area such that beach and nearby vegetation are in a completely natural state. Casa Amorosa is 40 miles from Liberia International Airport, (airport code LIR) and can be easily reached by rental car, shuttle van or taxi. The neighborhood is home to four great restaurants (Mar Azul, Bula Bula, La Cantarana and Seven Bar & Grill), and a small market, all within a few minutes' walk from the house. Playa Grande also offers several other restaurants about a mile north of Palm Beach Estates. Please note, some business close for the low season. For grocery shopping, there are several large grocery stores 20 min from the house that can be access by rental car or taxi.
The popular tourist destination of Tamarindo, which has many hotels, restaurants, shops and amenities, is a 1.5 mile walk down the beach from Casa Amorosa. There is an estuary which separates busy Tamarindo from peaceful Playa Grande and there are water taxis in the estuary available to transport people to and from Tamarindo during daylight hours at a cost of a dollar per person. Water taxis to Tamarindo can also be arranged through Bula Bula which will require far less walking but cost more per person (aprox $3). The water taxi drivers are also available to take visitors on tours of the estuary where many varieties of tropical wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat.
Playa Grande is a world-class surfing destination and there is surfing 5 min walk from the house at mile marker #25. The main break is in the town of Playa Grande about 1 mile from the house to the north and there is another break at the south end of Playa Grande called Casitas. There are opportunities for surfing lessons within Palm Beach Estates at Playa Grande Surf Camp and Acachete Surf, both within a few minutes' walk. There are opportunities for beginners and advanced surfers at Playa Grande. Casa Amorosa has provided guest use of beach chairs and beach towels.
Playa Grande is also a major nesting area for the leatherback turtle ("baula" in Spanish) which grow to 7 feet in length and can weigh up to 1650 pounds. Marino Las Baulas National Park protects and preserves a large variety of tropical wildlife and vegetation along many miles of beach and the large inland estuary. The leatherback turtle egg-laying season is between October 1 and March 1 and during that period the national park service, which is locally headquartered near the Las Tortugas Hotel, conducts nightly tours allowing people to see these endangered 100-million-year-old creatures lay 100 or more eggs on the beach. This is a truly unforgettable experience!
In addition to surfing and turtle adventures, there are many other activities to do if desired. There are several operators in Palm Beach Estates that can arrange for adventure activities like nature walks, zip lining, ATV, house back riding, fishing, etc.
