Surfers around the globe agree that Pavones has one of Costa Rica's (if not the world's) greatest left-hand surf breaks. Combine that with exquisite dining and beautiful scenery, and well - you fill in the rest! Now you can enjoy this idyllic, tropical region in complete comfort by staying in one of our luxurious vacation rentals at the beachfront complex, Pavones Point.
Where is Pavones Point?
Sitting on Costa Rica's southern Pacific coast just over 200 miles south of the capital city of San Jose and 20 miles from the border of Panama, Pavones Point is accessed via unpaved, tree-lined roads, giving a welcome sense of isolation. The development lies within the scenic province of Puntarenas
on the direct path of the trade winds flowing from the Caribbean. If you're flying into Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), just catch a connecting flight to Puerto Jiminez Airport and take a quick ferry ride across the bay.
A Place to Call Home in Pavones Point
Our luxurious vacation rentals at Pavones Point offer welcoming, beachfront living spaces that blend elements of a secluded tropical paradise with plenty of recently updated, high-end amenities.

Things to Do In and Around Pavones Point
Home to some of the longest waves on the planet, many visitors to Pavones Point will be coming for the legendary left-hand breaks that are second-in-length only to those in Chicama, Peru. These breaks are perfect for lefties who surf with their right foot forward, allowing them to face waves that are pushed into the Golfo Dulce by strong southern swells, or for righties who would like to practice their backside.
For those choosing not to brave the waves, there are prime viewing areas along an adjacent seawall, as well as a gorgeous stretch of beach that is ideal for splashing and sunbathing.
Eager anglers can book a chartered, off-shore fishing trip, while landlubbers head into the Golfito National Wildlife Refuge (just 38 miles north) to hike through 7,000 forested acres, visit plunging waterfalls, and catch glimpses of resident wildlife including spider monkeys, collared peccaries, adorable agoutis, and close to 400 varieties of birds!
