Costa Rica

Experience Pura Vida

You'll hear pura vida often in Costa Rica! It's a phrase with many meanings, from "Hello and GoodBye!" to "Everything's cool!" and expresses appreciation and pleasure for life in this beautiful, diverse and tropical country.

Costa Rica is small, yet it has astounding diversity. From lush rainforests to spectacular volcanoes, majestic mountains laced with pristine rivers to pounding waterfalls, Costa Rica is a nature lovers dream.

Of course, son't forget the hundreds of miles of fabulous beaches washed by the waves of both the Pacific and the Caribbean.

With abundant natural resources, a rich and colorful culture, exceptional weather, a dizzying array of outdoor activities and just a two-hour flight from Miami, it's easy to settle into la pura vida!


The Gold Coast

Guanacaste is part of the Nicoya Peninsula, a place that holds the amazing designation as one of just four "Blue Zones" in the world - areas where people commonly live active lives past the age of 100!

Named for the majestic national tree, the Guanacaste region is famed for the vast expanse of coastline dotted with countless magnificent beaches, dramatic scenery, charming villages, and the country's greatest concentration of national parks.

The Palms Private Residences is right on Playa Flamingo (Flamingo Beach), arguably the most stunning beach in The Gold Coast.

Playa Flamingo

Relaxation Meets Heart Pounding Adventure

A crescent of sugar-white sand framed between turquoise water and lush mountain foliage, and home to some of the most beautiful hotels and private residences on the coast. This is a swimmer's beach, with warm water and family-friendly waves, shady trees and balmy breezes.


A luxurious home base for your authentic Costa Rican adventure

Just 15 minutes south, explore the wonders of national parks and nature preserves, or enjoy the cultural and culinary delights of nearby villages and communities. This is a place where in the same day you can thrill to the rumble of howler monkeys, watch a three-toed sloth dangle languidly from a vine, rappel down a waterfall, soak in a hot spring and be lulled to sleep in your Palms residence by the ocean's lapping waves.
