Such an amazing experience in Costa Rica! My sister invited me on her family vacation and I’m glad I came. The staff was so gracious to us and made the states so enjoyable. The food was beyond delicious (gracias Daya). Girard was so attentive and Antonia made sure everything was top notch! I am already planning the next visit and want to stay at one of the other villas. Thank you Costa Rica Villas for the experience of a lifetime! Pura Vida!

Wonderful vacation at Villa Mariposa! Thank you to Girard, Daya and Mariella for making it so relaxing and to Kendall and Alex for lots of fun. Snorkeling was awesome on Antonio‘s boat with Jose and Michael. Pura Vida!

What a wonderful week. We are sad to be leaving tomorrow. It has been a wonderful time with friends and family! It wouldn’t have been nearly as enjoyable without the attentive care from Girard, Daya and Mariella. Wow! Their attention to every detail was certainly noticed. Daya is an amazing chef Girard went out of his way to ensure our every need was met and Mariella did a great job keeping the Villa spotless! The excursions were amazing. We certainly recommend the sunset sail – to die for! Thank you for an amazing trip! Truly unforgettable. Our girls loved at the pool too. “Mr. G” (Girard) was so kind to them and Daya, so accommodating.

Ola! Our time here at Villa Mariposa has exceeded all of my expectations. The gift of Mariposa is to reset and restore. I’ve been nurtured back to health emotionally, mentally and physically. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the blessing of Costa Rica and bringing us to this beautiful place. Pura Vida!

We are grateful to God for all the beauty we have experienced this week. Thank you for providing an incredible setting for us to enjoy this wonderful country. The people, gentle, kind and joyful, are the best part. Francisco, Allan, Kendall, Antonio, Oscar, George, Warren, Girard, Julia, Daya, Hazel, Natalia, Mariella, all of Rosa’s staff, and countless other smiles! We loved playing with the urracas, seeing monkeys, birds, crocs, iguanas, and talking to parrots. The breezes, the ocean, the mountains and even the mud are magical here. Being cared for as if we were family, the food, the libations, the pampering are so appreciated. We came with dear friends to celebrate a birthday. We made many new friends and will forever carry our memories in our hearts as treasured gifts. To God be the glory.

Wow! What an amazing vacation this is been! We have enjoyed Villa Mariposa so much, from the fabulous food, drinks, and services. The staff goes above and beyond their job. We felt like kings and queens. This is our first time being in Costa Rica and enjoy the beautiful country. We went on a river cruise, zip lining, river rafting and out to the ocean. Oh yes, and massages. Everyone was very friendly and full of information when asked a question. We will be back! Thanks to everyone!

We had such an amazing time here at Villa Mariposa. G & Ana were so kind! Ana made amazing meals and G was always asking us, "Would you like something to drink or are you finished?" They put so much effort and time into their jobs. We had an awesome experience ziplining, rock climbing, and rafting. Stephen was helping my two daughters and kept them safe during rafting. My husband and sons fished with Antonio's crew and had an amazing experience – snorkeling with them was perfect, too. We had relaxing massages and that was an amazing way to start the week. Pura vida!

A week is never long enough when you find paradise. Great friends, breathtaking view, and stiff drinks are the perfect combination for an unforgettable trip. Every meal was phenomenal and every beverage was better than the last. Deep sea fishing, the canopy tour, the mud baths/hot springs, and simply lounging around the pool are some of the memories we'll carry with us forever. Thank you to the entire Villa Mariposa staff for treating us like family.

We had a fantastic vacation with two great friends! Anabel makes the absolute best food, G is an amazing bartender, and Mariela did a great job all week with laundry and cleaning. We recommend Antonio's boat/snorkel tour and massages with Rosa and the gang. We know this will be a vacation spot we will come back to in the coming years. Thank you so much for the hospitality. Pura vida!

We had an amazing week with our two best friends. Allan was very knowledgeable and helpful setting up our tours. Absolutely *LOVED* Anabel's cooking. Every meal was so delicious!! Gerald, or "G" as we called him, was an amazing bartender. Mariela did a good job with our laundry and cleaning. There isn't one bad thing to say. We'd recommend Antonio's boat/snorkel tour. It was wonderful! Also ask for Rosa and her girls - best massages. This was definitely one of the best vacations we've ever had! We'll be back for sure! Thank you so much for all of the great times and the memories. Pura vida.

We gathered our family together to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, Brian and Leticia's 3rd anniversary, fun and adventures for son Craig and wife, Tina, and special moments for three grandchildren. View beautiful, weather spectacular, staff special - providing great food from Anabel, special attention from Luis our bartender to see every need met and a great sport playing cars with two year old! Our housekeeper kept our rooms cleaned with our own clothes washed daily. What a great time for all - ziplining, rafting, snorkeling, river exploration, and of course, the pool at the villa. Highly recommend this special place in truly a paradise!

Costa Rica is a country you visit because you hear and see pictures of its natural beauty. Costa Rica is a country you return to because of its people. Anabel and Luis at Villa Mariposa were a huge part of our experience in Costa Rica, and we are grateful to be treated like family. We can't wait to see you again! Muchas gracias and God Bless.
