About this property

Charming and Affordable Rental Yurt on the Beach
Located on a private cove in old town Mal Pais, the Beach Yurt combines beach camping with modern comforts and amenities such as a fully equiped kitchen and bathroom.  This 16 foot diameter yurt sits by the estuary of a stream on a small horseshow bay.

The Yurt has one double bed that is perfect for two guests eager or at least willing to share the double bed. We can provide an extra futon for either a group of three or two sleeping separately. The deck has a pathway to the beach just in front of you!  Escape and settle into the true Mal Pais lifestyle centered around the tides, surf, falling coconuts and visiting monkeys.

This property is located near Mar Azul. Mar Azul is a left hand point break that also has a right with the correct swell direction. South swells with an outgoing tide make for the best waves. The peak begins at a large rocky slab that can be exposed on low tide. There is also an easy-going inside peak that can work well and offer long (200 meters) rides. Mar Azul is somewhat fickle, not breaking all the time, but when it does break it is one of the best advanced surf spots in Malpais.

This property is also located near Playa Santa Teresa. A 2km stretch of some of the most consistent beachbreak on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The beach's Southeast/Northwest orientation makes it ideally exposed to swell angles from below 195 to over 220 degrees; although it breaks best with SSW combo swells. While ostensibly a sandbar beach break, the unique bottom configuration of sand over rock reef gives form to the consistently breaking peaks for which Santa Teresa is famous. These well-groomed sandbars offer peaky, punchy rights and lefts that are just plain fun when it is under head high. But the game changes once the swell goes overhead, offering up juicy outside walls that connect into grinding inside barrels.

This property is also located near Roca Mar/Suck Rock. A grindy, challenging right hand reef break located at the West end of Playa Santa Teresa. It is also known as "Suck Rock," because the wave jacks up out of deep water, doubling up over a dry reef as it peels across into deeper water. Deep, spitting tubes are the reward for skirting the "Dreaded Spine."
