Casa Mariposa

Beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean

Casa Mariposa is a beautiful, ocean view home only 25 minutes from San Juan del Sur offering breathtaking ocean views and just a short walk to Playa el Coco. The secluded half mile wide beach, is perfect for surfing, fishing, and sunset walks. When you are not in the mood for sand between your toes, head back up to the house to relax with a book or cocktail on the expansive patio by the infinity pool. Unwind in the cool ocean breeze listening to the sound of the ocean waves or cool off with a dip in the pool. Take in the views of the mountain and the Pacific Ocean. You may even see a migrating humpback whale in the distance or be entertained by Howler monkeys passing by in the surrounding trees. No need to leave the house for meals as you can use the well equipped kitchen or the outdoor brick oven to prepare your dinner. Or better yet, treat yourself, and have Casa Mariposa’s cuidador, Freddy, spoil you with one of his famous local dishes. Enjoy a hot shower and then a restful night’s sleep in one of the four spacious, air-conditioned bedrooms.  This exotic location offers many modern comforts like high speed WiFi, whole house air conditioning, filtered water, hot water, and solar power with lithium battery back up for reliable electricity.

If you are looking for some adventure and exploration, you need not look far. Casa Mariposa’s cuidador, Norlan, will be happy to assist you in making arrangements for guided or unguided excursions.  Venture out to Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua for spectacular views of the volcanos and a taste of the local decadent chocolate. Thrill seekers can take a day trip to Cerro Negro, near Leon, for the once in a lifetime opportunity to go volcano boarding. On the way back to Casa Mariposa stop by Masaya Volcano to be awestruck by the molten lava bubbling up from Earth’s interior. Closer to home you can go horseback riding on the beach or visit Playa Hermosa (where Survivor season 21 was filmed) for world class surfing and relaxation.

Whether you are seeking a vacation full of fun and excitement or rest and relaxation you will find it here at Casa Mariposa.
