A Grand Hacienda & Private Reserve in Costa Rica
Hacienda Cabo Velas is a 1700-acre working ranch on a private peninsula on Costa Rica's beautiful northwest coast. It is comprised of several miles of forested, hilly coastline and has five long, sandy beaches.
Cabo Velas is perfect for the family or small group wanting an active vacation in virgin surroundings. Within its 1700 acres, Cabo Velas offers three distinct types of experiences:
Total privacy on the pristine, scenic Pacific coast of Costa Rica, with miles of beaches and rich marine life.
Lush forest of the dry tropics, with a rich variety of woodlands, open fields, lagoons and mangrove estuaries all teaming with animal life and birds, resident and migratory.
A working ranch farming traditional livestock and tropical fruit groves.
Cabo Velas is on a secluded peninsula on the dry, breezy coastline of the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, just north of the town of Tamarindo. It is 45 minutes drive from the Liberia (international) airport, which is reached by, among other flights, five-times weekly non-stop flights from Atlanta on Delta Airlines and three-times weekly non-stop flights from Miami on American Airlines. The main airport in Costa Rica, in San Jose, is reached by frequent non-stop flights from several U.S. cities; from there it is a 30-minute air hop to either Cabo Velas' own air strip (a charter can be arranged) or Tamarindo (frequent commercial flights) or a 4-5 hour drive by rented car or private limousine.
More transportation information
There are four charming thatched-roof ranchos at Cabo Velas, right on one of the property's larger beaches. Each rancho has a spacious master bedroom with sitting area and large outdoor porch facing the ocean, plus a large dressing room and bath with indoor and outdoor showers. Above the master in each rancho is a smaller bedroom with either twin or full beds, with its own dressing room and bathroom.
All accommodations offer the choice of air-conditioning or screened windows with overhead fan, with the latter being preferred by many considering the lovely, dry breezes.
Total capacity of Cabo Velas is 16.
Cabo Velas offers an exciting array of activities. From relaxing on any one of five glorious beaches
, to world-class deep-sea fishing, to horseback riding on miles of Cabo Velas' own trails. Cabo Velas presents a unique bird watching experience with an abundance of land, sea and migratory birds residing in the forests, lagoons and pastures.
Cabo Velas is surrounded by some of the most pristine forests teaming with wild life and affording
all-year-round nature and botanic tours hosted by a graduate school naturalist and activity guide. Depending on the season, one can visit Leatherback turtle nesting sites in the adjoining national park. Within driving distance, one can find white-water rafting, bathing in hot water springs, trekking in national parks, visiting local villages, or canopying on
cables above the roof of the jungle.
Golf is available at three championship courses within 30 minutes drive. The course at Conchal was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Pinilla was designed by Mike Young and The Four Seasons was designed by Arnold Palmer.
Dining is in the Main Rancho, in a screen-surrounded room facing the ocean.
In the same thatched-roof rancho is a comfortable living room, and just outside there is an expansive two-level terrace facing the ocean.
Dinners can also be served on a terrace at the beach. Picnics can be packed for lunches for the active guest.
Cuisine at Cabo Velas is international in style, with traditional Costa Rican accents and dishes using a wide variety of fresh local vegetables, fruits and herbs, as well as freshly caught fish and locally-farmed beef.
