Casa Corazon del Rio (10 beds, 14 people) with Cascading Waterfall & Swim Hole

Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 14
Platanillo, Province of San Jose
Relax in an amazing environment with a cascading waterfall, river and a swim hole we've named 'Corazon del Rio' (Heart of the River). We brought part of the river into the living area, its sound and the ability to sit with your feet in the water, or relax in its wading pool, gives the Pura Vida (Pure Life) spirit we wanted for our guests to enjoy.

Aside from your cozy bedroom, enjoy either one of the two upstairs decks. One looks out at the La Ceiba River and the other overlooks the water feature and living area within the casa. Downstairs rest in a hammock, dangle your feet in the living area creek, or relax in our wading pool. Hungry? Cook your own meal in our beautiful large open-air kitchen. We welcome you to make memories and relax in our Pura Vida environment.

Corazon del Rio is located in the...

Interaction with guests
Upon your arrival you will find our co-host (Esteban) has left you keys in each door. We also have a lock box on each door with the combinations provided in our welcome pack we send you after booking. You can enjoy our cascading waterfall just steps away, depending on the time of year it can be rather slow or flowing at a high rate, best to always have someone with you on the falls as they can be slippery. Our co-host Esteban can also provide guided tours to any or all of his four waterfalls, all by foot from our front door. Highly suggested! Photos of these waterfalls as well as other local falls can be seen on our website. Looking for the beach or to surf, it is quick 15 minute drive down to Dominical.

About the neighbourhood
Corazon del Rio is located in the quiet mountain village of Platanillo in the Southern Pacific Region of Costa Rica. Located at a 1200 foot elevation that is cooler in temperature than the coastal beach areas that are just a quick fifteen minute drive away. Get to know this little secret location a bit better! Just one mile away, the small village has two grocery stores, a bakery, among other shops, services and restaurants. A weekly farmer's market is just ten minutes up the road. One of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, the Nauyaca Waterfall is just a short five minute drive down the road. Not far to the east is Tinamaste, home of the Diamante Waterfall​, the tallest waterfall in Costa Rica. Further east is San Isidro, the se
Getting around
We are located just 1.7km (1 mile approx.) off the paved road in Platanillo, so we recommend accessing by 4 wheel drive, especially during the rainy season. The roads are maintained very well, but can be slippery during a rain.
Car advised
How to get there
