Recent Cabo Matapalo vacation rental reviews

Be prepared for a road that requires 4 wheel drive and skill. Once you're there it's amazing! Clean, the host was great and even made us batidas from fruit on property. Spider monkeys everywhere and even joined us for dinner while we were able to take close photos and observe from inside the tree house. What an experience! Great birding!

If your looking for adventure with amenities and new experiences, Animals, ocean, fresh air, beach, and adventure this is the place. We landed in Liberia rented a jeep and drove to Tamarindo for three day of relaxation before we hit the road and drove down the entire pacific coast stopping along the way. We did the trip in a day but would recommend staying a night in Quepos to break up the trip. We booked with **** all of our activities and it was seamless. **** was absolutely fantastic ensuring we had everything we needed. We had a private chef ******* for dinners and they were amazing and extremely affordable. The road from Puerto Jimenez is rough but an adventure!!!!! MUST HAVE 4x4. Already planning next years trip back and are just heading straight to Puerto Jimenez and booking in the same house. Visiting Corcovado is a must, snorkeling and the dolphins were amazing.

A challenge to get to, but amazing for nature lovers and those who want to get away and relax away from the crowds. Beautiful place and worth the drive!
