Nestled in the tropics a short distance from Costa Rica's Pacific coastline is a friendly little town named Platanillo. If you're looking for laid-back vibes, lush jungle scenery, and a rich sense of community, our Platanillo vacation rentals are calling your name.
Platanillo lies at the western edge of San Jose Province, roughly nine miles inland of Dominical. Reaching the beach from our Platanillo vacation rentals is as easy as following the Río Barú. Uvita, the village that hosts Envision Fest, is a 20-mile drive away.
The star attraction of Platanillo is easily the beach. Hop in your car and drive the nine miles to Dominical, where you can enjoy surfing, whale watching, snorkeling, fishing, and kayaking. Arrange a scuba diving excursion out on the protected reef near Cano Island offshore, or sign up for a private catamaran tour with a local.
There are other activities closer to home that don't involve the beach, though. Pay a visit to Nauyaca Waterfalls, just two-and-a-half miles away, for a refreshing swim and a chance to take some memorable photographs. Up the road a short distance farther, you'll find the Reptile Park, home to a diverse collection of reptiles that is sure to impress the whole family.
Escape into the jungle on your next Costa Rica vacation with our Platanillo vacation rentals.
