Whether you are a veteran of Costa Rican surf safaris or this is your first trip, you cannot deny the excitement that comes with booking your airline ticket. The die is cast. You are heading to a tropical paradise sans wetsuit! With its exposure to waves from both hemispheres, Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast is almost never flat. You are going to get waves. The only remaining question is how to make the most of your precious vacation time. The answer: grab a few friends and rent the swankest Manuel Antonio rental you can afford. Below are five reasons why renting a luxurious beach house is a great decision for your next surf vacation.
1. You’ll Save Money. Let’s say you and three buds are heading to Costa Rica for your surf adventure. You are going to have to pay for two hotel rooms – unless you enjoy sharing a bed with your friends. For the cost of two decent hotel rooms, you can rent a three or four bedroom house. For a little more, you are staying in four-star digs, with a private pool, cushy linens and an ocean view. You are going to see plenty of your bros during your week in paradise. Don’t wake up next to them as well.
2. Fully Stocked Kitchen. When you book a Manuel Antonio rental, you are booking a private home. That means it comes with a full kitchen, utensils, plates, glasses, etc. Sure you are going to want to eat out a few times during your trip. That doesn’t mean you want to pay the local 13% sales tax and mandatory 10% gratuity for every meal. Make a trip to the local supermarket and pick up a selection of fresh fruit, some eggs and local fresh baked bread. Even if you just eat breakfast in, you’ll save a bundle of time and money.
3. In House Massage. The Costa Rican spa industry has the delightful custom that they will deliver spa treatments right in your Manuel Antonio rental home. That means you can speak with your Manuel Antonio rental property manager, and they will arrange for a massage after your surf session. Imagine the feeling when your bros tell you that your masseuse is here. She sets up her massage table under your rental home’s lanai. You last about fifteen minutes before you drift off. You kind of remember your masseuse waking you before she left as you made a quick move to a lounge chair and continued your slumber. Since you arranged everything through your property manager, you didn’t even have to bother with payment.
4. Spend a Night In. The nightlife in Costa Rica is awesome. You are going to have a great time. However, there are nights when you would prefer to hang in. Spending a night in a hotel room is lame. On the other hand, having a few beers with your bros recounting the day’s adventures in your beachfront rental home doesn’t sound bad at all. Whether it’s your last night and you have an early drive to the airport, or a dawn patrol to catch some empty waves, a night in is a lot more fun in a luxury Manuel Antonio rental.
5. Ideal Nest for the Ladies. If you bring your significant other on your surf adventure, you are likely to catch heat about surfing too much. I know, she’s crazy, but you are the one who brought her along. However, if you post up in a pimp ass beachfront bungalow, order her a full in-house spa treatment, make sure the fridge is well stocked with chardonnay, chocolate strawberries (ask your Manuel Antonio rental property manager – they’ll find them for you) and plenty of snacks, she will probably greet you with a “back so soon?” instead of “where have you been?”
You have already taken the decisive step of booking your flight to Costa Rica. Take the next step to turn a fun trip into a great trip. Don’t waste time staying in a hotel. Let someone else do the heavy lifting by booking a swank Manuel Antonio rental. You will be more comfortable, save money and have more fun than staying in some overpriced hotel.
