Tamarindo Property Description

Welcome to “La Caja de Joyas” or “The Jewel Box”, our family’s private and relaxing vacation property. We are located in the quite community of Playa Langosta, Tamarindo. Playa Langosta is an upscale community with a variety of shops and services as well as an amazing beach suitable for family swimming and some of the best surfing in the area. You can beach walk for miles or just relax and enjoy the amazing climate and rustic feel of the area. A short walk, 2 minute drive or taxi takes you into the commercial center of Tamarindo where there are many more shops, clubs and restaurants lining the beach. When not at the beach book an adventure tour, enjoy an afternoon/sunset sailing cruise, go turtle watching, take in a fitness class or just relax and enjoy a frozen Mojito, one of our favorite guilty pleasures while watching the evening sunsets. Or enjoy some delicious Costa Rican coffee at one of the specialty shops close by. You can also attend the Saturday market where local produce and arts and crafts are offered up.

Awesome stay at La Caja de Joyas during Winter Recess

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at La Caja de Joyas during Xmas and New Years with our two children (11 and 16). The unit is exactly as advertised. Very comfortably furnished with many amenities including good internet access, Apple tv, etc. We spent time at both the Langosta beach and beaches in Tamarindo. Tamarindo is a 15 minute walk by road or 20 by walking the beach which we would highly recommend. We would definitely recommend visiting the sports bar which is a half a block away. Friendly atmosphere for adults and children. The private pool provides a peaceful and relaxing retreat from the beaches when desired. Their are many activities to be enjoyed in the area. We tried surfing, zip lining and boogie boarding but relaxing at the beach cannot be overlooked either. Finally, the owners of this property were a great help and very accommodating. Many questions we had before and during our stay were answered in a timely manner. We are hoping to be back next year!

Best Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 and stayed here in mid August. First of all the property was exactly as listed, which is always a concern when booking on line. The owner was very helpful to us and everything was as he stated. The condo was very clean and homely. Tamarindo itself was what we expected. We had great fun learning how to surf, and enjoyed a day of zip lining which was a great adventure. The town is about a 15 minute walk which we enjoyed everyday. We cooked at home a lot and loved getting the fresh fish and vegetables locally. There is a quality supermarket about 10 mins away by car and a local mini mart around the corner.
All in all we had a wonderful time and would go back in the future.
Dan , Marie & sons.

A Dream Vacation in Langosta

  • 5 of 5
I cannot offer anything but the highest praise of both 'La Caja de Joyas' and it's lovely owners, Clem & Kelly, who were beyond accommodating in helping me plan all aspects of my time in Costa Rica (before and during my trip) . . .

This visit was my 3rd time to CR, and the Tamarindo area. Choosing to stay in Langosta, in a condo was the right decision. I stayed for a month in the incredibly comfortable, well appointed and beautiful property. I live, work and am a graduate student in NYC and chose La Caja de Joyas as a much needed escape from the City to do some adventuring, writing, a bit of work and lots of relaxing. It was a successful refresh indeed!

I enjoyed every part of my day - cooking for myself in the beautiful and modern kitchen and outdoor grill, enjoying my Costa Rican coffee and writing each morning on the balcony, morning surf sessions, afternoons by the quite (almost private) pool and sunsets on the beach (a 4 minute walk) . . . The neighbors were lovely and I always felt safe and secure - even as a lady traveling on my own. My mother visited for a week and we took a few awesome day trips from Langosta, but always enjoyed returning from our adventures to comfort of La Caja De Joyas. Another week, 2 friends visited and we enjoyed spending time in Tamarindo each day (just a short walk, bike or taxi).

My only advisement to potential guest is beware that you may fall so deeply in love with Langosta and Guapinol that you wont ever want to stop living La Pura Vida . . . I can't wait to return!

This condo was more than convent. Located walking distance from the beach, markets and the center of Tamarindo. The pool and jacuzzi was clean. There's a washer and dryer right outside the kitchen, you do not need to pack a lot clothes.the decor and furnishing are up to date. The kitchen is fully stocked and has all modern appliances. The AC is super cold. The owners have a binder with WiFi instructions, local information and have labeled the unit, making it very user friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

a little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we would certainly return again! The condo we stayed in was very clean, private and quiet - an ideal get away from the hustle and bustle of our regular lives.The condo is spacious and well decorated with lots of light. Very comfortable. We had everything needed at hand. There was a big covered balcony and all meals, eaten at home, were enjoyed there. This really became an outdoor living room. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The bed was comfortable. Wif-fi was reliable and supported well enough for video streaming.The pool was clean and we were often the only ones using it. The grounds are kept well by garderner Alvaro The beach was nearby - 3 minute walk and you are right on the ocean. Groceries nearby too - again about 3 minute walk. Easy access to the business centre of Tamarindo - again more wonderful beaches and a great place to relax on the beach at a restaurant with margarita or mojito and watch the sunset. The owners were helpful in directions to the condo and recommendations for places to visit and restaurants.
English was spoken in town in most places so that was great as neither of us knew any Spanish. All the people we met were so friendly - both locals and expats. Everyone has a neat story.
The vacation was great for us - just relaxing. If a person wanted to be more adventerous there was lots to do - lots of surfing right there and tours to sign up for that included zip lining and hiking in the rain forest.
We did not use a car at all the first week there and then rented one for the second week to do some sightseeing.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had such a great time during your visit. It was a pleasure to have you stay at the condo and we suspect the sunset mojitos will bring you back one day.
During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.


From the Owner

Tamarindo is a great town with a beautiful beach. Great for surfing and swimming. Tamarindo has a full set of services as well as great shopping, world class restaurants and nightlife. There are so many great outdoor activities: canopy tours, catamaran tours, ATV, horse back riding, surfing, scuba diving, volcano day trips, white water rafting to name a few! You will find the property to be very safe and Langosta to be the perfect balance of a relaxing community with easy access to the commercial centre of Tamarindo.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Liberia International Airport at 35 Miles Nearest Barpub : Sports Bar 1 block, Langosta Beach at 50 Metres Nearest Golf : Hacienda Pinilla at 12 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Cala Luna Hotel, Lilly's or Barcelo Resort at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Langosta at 300 Metres Nearest Point of Interest : CONDOMINIUM GUAPINOL Car: not necessary

Almost limitless options for shopping, restaurants, tours, activities of all sorts. Tamarindo is well developed but retains a very rustic non commercial feel to it. Beaches are amazing, weather in this spot on the Nicoya Peninsula is some of the driest, nicest weather in all of Central America. It is what attracted so many to this location after the International Airport was opened in Liberia, about 45 minutes from Tamarindo.

From the Owner

This condo it is so closed to the white sand beach of Langosta, the estuary and ocean breezes, the sea birds, amazing sunsets, a real natural paradise. The Leather Backs turtles (largest in the world) nest in Playa Langosta and howler monkeys are known to visit our terrace from time to time and are always close by! Langosta is Spanish for lobster and they can be caught right off the local shores.
