The Destination
Stationed on the southern tip of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, Malpais is a surfer's dream. A place of exquisite tropical beauty, this coastal community boasts enough recreational opportunities to keep a man busy for years. Once a strip of sleepy fishing villages, Malpais and its neighboring towns of Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen have recently flourished, garnering international attention for their killer breaks and lush jungles. Plus, there are several good restaurants and even more open-till-dawn bars to satisfy partiers.

The Digs
Perched on a peaceful hill, Vista de Olas Hotel & Spa is surrounded by stunning views of Playa Malpais, Playa Carmen, Santa Teresa, and more. Each of the hotel's five yellow villas is tucked away in the jungle, affording guests extra privacy. Deluxe Villa accommodations are appointed with queen-size canopy beds and mosaic tile floors, along with a private porch, an open-sky bathroom, and air conditioning.

The Diversions
There's no lack of sprawling, white-sand beaches in Malpais, and surfers have taken note. Off the beach, there are dozens of other endeavors that are ripe for the undertaking, like zipline canopy tours, waterfall excursions, fishing trips, sailing, yoga, horseback riding, and ATV tours, all of which Vista de Olas can arrange for you. After a full day of exploring, be sure and schedule a massage back at your villa.

  • "It was by far the best vacation we've ever had! The hotel was wonderful! The villas were clean, the pool was amazing, the bar was fabulous, and the view from the hotel bar/restaurant was unlike anything I've ever seen. It was beautiful!"
