Paradise in Uvita

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent one exceptional week at Libelula. Our group ranged from age 76 to 3 years-old (5 adults and 2 young children), everyone enjoyed it! The house is spacious, the bedrooms comfortably large, and the pool perfect. There are 3 sitting areas nicely arranged outside so the rain did not ruin our stay at all (we had a few showers). The view is nice and we saw more birds at the house than at the reserve. Falcons, hummingbirds, parrots, toucans, pecho amarillo would come to visit every day. Licho and Darlene are most generous, dedicated and made our stay truly wonderful. Darlene is such a good chef, we never cooked!
I strongly recommend La Libelula for anyone wanting to experience la Pura Vida in Uvita!

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5
There are not enough words to describe our amazing family vacation to beautiful Costa Rica and our stay at the incredibly luxurious La Libelula house. Neil was very helpful in his recommendations from car rental to excursions and directions. Our family of 8 are the adventurous type and Steve helped set up excursions for us which included horse back rides to waterfalls, white water rafting and ATV tours through the jungle. The on-sight staff of Lliche and Darlene took very good care of the grounds and pool plus cooked authentic CR meals for our family which were delicious. I highly recommended this vacation home to others.

Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
I searched quite extensively online for the perfect house to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. It turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. Our family consisted of 6 adults and 2 children. The house provided everything we needed and had hoped for in a vacation home. The house was amazing inside and out. The decor was tasteful and the views were breathtaking. We were able to see monkeys, toucans and hummingbirds right from the pool deck. The kids loved the pool and would have stayed there the entire time if given the choice. The local beaches were great. The location is perfectly centrally located to experience the best the area has to offer. Steve was very helpful throughout the process. He booked our tours, which were incredible, answered all our questions and gave us great advise on the area. Liche and Darlene were so sweet. Darlene kept the house fresh and tidy, cooked us a delicious traditional Costa Rican meal and always had a smile. Liche took us to see the waterfall on the property, kept the outside spick and span, and cut open coconuts for us to try. They are a great addition to the house. There is so much to do in this region for the adventurous and the property is the perfect compliment as the relaxing, beautiful place to stay. I highly recommend La Libelula and would love to return some day.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of three couples in the 55+ age group. We had a wonderful vacation in a beautiful setting and a fantastic home including the outside pool, kitchen/bbq, landscaping and social areas. Darlene and Licho were great and kept the property spotless during our stay. Neil is a terrific manager and was on top of everything. This place is everything you could want and more. We want to return!

The best that Uvita/Dominical has to offer!

  • 5 of 5
La Libelula is an beautiful property! We had a family vacation here and we will definitely return. Neil helped answer all of my questions prior to arrival and was a great help booking this property with ease and confidence. This home has a great location, is impeccably clean, super comfortable, open and airy. In the evenings we would open all of the doors and just have the sea breeze flow through the home - it was absolutely delicious. La Libelula is a short drive to some great surf of which we took full advantage of every day. The caretakers, Licho and Darlene are a great bonus to this property as they are sweet and helpful with anything that we needed. Licho helped us spot monkeys and toucans in the trees and we got some great pics thanks to him. He also chopped us down some fresh coconuts for a snack! The views from this property are amazing and the lush tropical landscaping is incredible. Photo ops at every corner. We would recommend this property to anyone and hope to be back very soon.

True Costa Rican Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to travel to Costa Rica with our two young children but didn't want the resort, touristy feel, but rather a more natural, private experience to take it all in. We found this home online and was attracted to its location in the jungle on a mountainside and expansive view of the ocean. Unfortunately, on our drive to the home from the airport we fell into a torrential downpour of rain, so we were not able to see any of the scenery on the way there. Neil, the property manager, met us and went over info on the home and sights to see while we were there. The home is gorgeous and very comfortable and the air-conditioned bedrooms are very cozy at night! We woke in the morning only to find the most gorgeous view from our bedroom balcony.....sweeping views of the countryside and ocean! Not to mention the large, inviting pool. The outdoor grill area under the cabana was wonderful! We spent most of our evenings there cooking and having cocktails and watching and listening to all the wildlife around us. A beautiful, non-crowded beach is right down the hillside (about 10 minutes drive) which we enjoyed very much. The pristine sand dollars were everywhere! The caretakers, Licho and his wife, were awesome and very helpful and cooked us a few authentic meals while we were there. Each morning he would cut off fresh coconuts for us and his wife, Darlene, even made us a coconut dessert one night. Yummy! He even took time out of his day to drive us to a nearby waterfall and even stayed with us to ensure we could find our way back. The drive into the town of Uvita is only about 2 miles away. We could easily access the convenient grocery store each day, as we mainly cooked our meals at the house each day. The locals are friendly and there was no concern for our safety at any point during the trip. We did venture into Dominical (about a 10 minute drive) one day to shop and eat out at the beach. Great food! Would like to recommend The Baker Bean which is right down the hill from the home - great homemade pizza! Also enjoyed La Parcela overlooking the ocean towards Dominical- gorgeous view and the monkeys come out in the surrounding trees about 1:00 each day. On our last morning there, I awoke to a sound I've never heard before right outside of our bedroom balcony. It was a howler monkey! My son and I watched him for about an hour and were amazed! The tropical birds are also wonderful to watch. Would highly recommend this home! Pura Vida!

September & October are the best months to see the huge humpback whales off the coast of Uvita. These whales migrate from thousands of miles away and come each year to the beautiful coastline of Costa Rica to mate and to give birth to their off spring. These huge gentle giants of the Ocean can be seen normally in groups or a mother with her off spring and they are apparently unconcerned being accompanied by the whale watchers boat. They can give spectacular shows of swimming agility by breaching, fin and tail slapping, lop tailing or simply blowing great plumes of air and water when then exhale up to 40 meter of height.
