About the Neighborhood

Villas Xihu is situated in the scenic hills of Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica. This small, typical village on a tranquil beach, is just 20 minutes south of the beach town of Jaco which hosts casinos, restaurants, shops, bars, jazz and lots of night-life.

40 minutes south of Esterillos is the town of Quepos which is home to one of the world’s finest rain forest parks in the country, Manuel Antonio National Park.

Costa Rica is one of a few countries that boasts world class surfing year round with beaches that made this region of Costa Rica famous. Esterillos offers good wind and a southwest, south swell that starts working at less than 1m/3ft and holds up to 4m+/12ft with an average wave length of 50 to 150m at times reaching 150 to 300m. Featuring a beach break with lava reef fingers that stick out to sea, it picks up even more swell than Hermosa and has different sections of reef breaking all the way to 1/2 mile offshore, with big, long waves that peel and reform.
