Manuel Antonio Vacation Rentals

Dominical

A country like Costa Rica has miles and miles of beautiful coast. You often wonder why towns spring up in certain area and not in others. In many cases a nearby river provided fresh water or a natural bay allowed boats to bring supplies. Dominical existence is less urbane: it’s beautiful and has great waves. The laid back atmosphere reminds many expats of unspoiled Costa Rica. Come find out why many people consider this beautiful beach town Costa Rica’s best kept secret.

Dominical Vacation Homes

If you want to explore Dominical’s uncrowded beaches, beautiful waterfalls and pristine rain forest, your best bet is the find the perfect Dominical rental home. There are simply no big hotels in the area, and few high-end accommodations, so a Dominical vacation rental home is the perfect way to enjoy all the beauty of the area as well as the comfort and luxury you expect on your vacation. As you exit the water after your morning surf session, give a smile and a wave to those surfers arriving from Jaco as you head off to enjoy breakfast. Back at your Dominical Luxury home, your official base camp, the rest of your party will be ready to head out and explore the rest of what Dominical has to offer.

Dominical Restaurants

La Palapa Restaurant at Hotel Cuna del Angel. When you are ready to have a special night out, head over to La Palapa restaurant at Hotel Cuna del Angel, which means “The Cradle of the Angel.” You’ll feel like you are in heaven with a fine selection of expertly prepared tropical drinks. Make sure to arrive early to enjoy the sunset.

Bar Jolly Roger. Known for their famous chicken wings and cold beer, this is one of those great hillside jungle restaurants you stumble across. Stop in and chat with the friendly locals. Added bonus: the JR, as locals call it, has one of the better beer selections in the Dominical area.

The Refuge. There comes a time in every adventure traveler’s journey when you have to go home again. I don’t mean home home, I mean you need to eat something familiar. This is when you head to The Refuge. They have the best comfort food in Costa Rica. Famous for their burgers and shakes, stop in, fill up and be ready for your next adventure!

Dominical Bars

Tortilla Flats. Any Steinbeck inspired place must be filled with colorful caracters and Tortilla Flats doesn’t disappoint. Who’s Steinbeck? Doesn’t anyone read anymore? In any case, you need to go. It’s the only bar directly on the beach. Try their Frozen Pineapple Basil margarita. “Two gallons is a great deal of wine, even for two Dominicans. Spiritually the jugs maybe graduated thus: Just below the shoulder of the first bottle, serious and concentrated conversation. Two inches farther down, sweetly sad memory. Three inches more, thoughts of old and satisfactory loves. An inch, thoughts of bitter loves. Bottom of the first jug, general and undirected sadness. Shoulder of the second jug, black, unholy despondency. Two fingers down, a song of death or longing. A thumb, every other song each one knows. The graduations stop here, for the trail splits and there is no certainty. From this point anything can happen.”
― John Steinbeck, Tortilla Flat

Roca Verde. Roca Verde (Green Rock) is an open air bar and frequent venue for live music. When they have an event, it is the place to be.

Maracatu. The reggae themed Maracatu is known for it’s healthy wraps during the day. However, in the evenings, it turns to nightlife. Tuesday they feature an open mic night. Wednesday is ladies night. Saturday they often feature a live DJ. Maracatu features a younger crowd and edgier music.
