We loved being here in 2002

Near Dominical, Costa Rica really nice

Dominical is situated on the dramatic coast of the southern Costa Rican Pacific. This part of Costa Rica is breathtakingly beautiful; the lush jungle plunges into the sea and the colors here are truly tropical. Nature preserves surround you and the wildlife here is abundant. Relax on your private patio, at the pool or on a tour at the local ecological preserve. Spending time here, you will see how the atmospheric greens of the jungle and the intense blues of the sea influence your work.
