FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is your place family-friendly?

Definitely yes! Kids love it a lot here, it’s only a few steps from a giant sand castle playground. We also have toys for children, and can provide a crib, if needed.
Are there restaurants nearby?

Yes, a short stroll from our villas you find a beachside restaurant which is open all day. And a 10-min drive from Manzanillo brings you to Playa Hermosa where you find some of the most acclaimed  restaurants of Costa Rica. Another 5 min farther is Santa Teresa with a plethora of restaurants and bars.
Where do I buy food?

We recommend to buy food at one of the supermarkets in Cobano, 12 km before Villas Orishas.  In Manzanillo there is a small grocery story where you get basic supplies and it’s a bit more expensive than in Cobano. More supermarkets are found in Santa Teresa, 10 km from Villas Orishas. Super fresh sea food can be bought directly from the fishermen on the beach in the morning.
How is the weather like?

It’s virtually sun-shine guarantee from December to May. From June to September it rains occasionally in the afternoon or at night. The wettest month is October and November.
What should I bring?

As the climate here is tropical temperature year-round you will want to dress lightly. For rain season bring some rain gear. Dress code in restaurants is casual so there is no need for elegant dresses. Repellents, sun cream, and other items can be bought in local supermarkets but you might want to bring snorkeling gear and good footwear if you want to do hiking.
How do we get to your place?

You find detailed travel information on our How to get there page
What activities do you suggest?

The beach of Manzanillo invites for hiking, so you can spend a lot of time just exploring the stunning beach wilderness at both sides of Villas Orishas. Snorkeling is great right in front of the villas during low tide. You can also do kayaking or SUP tours, offered by tour agencies in Santa Teresa. And of course you find tremendous surf spots at nearby Playa Hermosa and Santa Teresa. More: Area info

Can I bring pets?
