Maps, Directions, and a bit of General Information…
Paradise Costa Rica luxury vacation rentals are located 7 km. (5 mi.) South of the town of Dominical, at a perfect 1200 ft. elevation, overlooking the beautiful South-Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica — 175 km (110 miles) from Juan Santamaria International Airport <SJO> (near San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital city.)
Driving to our Villas via the “coastal route” takes you along on well-paved roads past beautiful landscapes and unique mountain and ocean views. Another driving option is the “mountain route,” that takes longer, but is even more scenic.
There are flights from San Jose to Quepos, about 30 minutes from “Paradise Costa Rica” and it is possible to pre-arrange a vehicle from either San Jose or Quepos. We strongly advise renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle to facilitate access to our property, and to many of the beautiful “out-of-the-way” attractions in the Dominical area.

Weather for our Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
The Dominical area has an average temperature of 83F (28C) and is delightful year round. There is a “dry” season from November through April. During the rest of the year, the mornings are usually sunny but it may rain in the afternoon. While Costa Rica is a tropical wonderland all year, many nature lovers find the lush “green” season especially beautiful. Thanks to our mountain-side location, guests at Villa Mango and Casa Amigos Costa Rica Vacation Rentals enjoy year-round cooling, comfortable mountain breezes.
Dominical: Closest town to Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
Dominical is a small coastal village (pop. approx. 600), about 50 km. (30 miles) South of Quepos. People are easy-going, and the relaxed atmosphere is contagious! There are various cozy bars and a surprising variety of casual restaurants and “sodas” (serving “local” food.) Later in the evening, some restaurants change into discotheques, where “Ticos” (native Costa Ricans) and vacationers dance to Latin music.
You are sure to enjoy the wonderful restaurants in our area, including Thai, Continental, Mexican, Italian, French Canadian and Costa Rican… all in beautiful tropical settings. Shops in the area include gift stores, clothes boutiques, grocery stores, fruit stands, bakeries, internet cafes, and more! Discover Dominical and many beautiful, secluded beaches that are just a quick drive “down the mountain” from Villa Mango and Casa Amigos luxury rental villas.

We truly felt as though we were in Paradise. Loved every minute of it. Even the rain was a welcome break and a time to justify just relaxing at the Villa. It definitely filled every expectation we had of a wonderful family vacation. We all loved the house and the “kids” really enjoyed Dominical. What can I say? It was Paradise and we all look forward to a return trip. Thank you so much for going the extra mile for us to make sure our vacation was above and beyond. It was and we thank you and Youval both. Looking forward already to a return trip next year. A big Thank You from all.
