Los Portales Costa Rica Villas
Los Portales is perched on a panoramic point at a 1050 foot elevation. The property consists of 17 acres of jungle of which approximately 80% is virgin rainforest. It offers one of the most outstanding and exceptional 180 degree ocean views in all of Costa Rica. Views of the southern Pacific coastline, the Osa peninsula, and Cano Island are incredible and reminiscent of Hawaii 25 years ago. The primary forest views are mesmerizing. Sunsets throughout most of the year are world class and the colors explode into the entire horizon. Los Portales offers exceptional privacy throughout. A virtual library of birds, monkeys, and other wildlife will visit you frequently. Here you will view birds not just from below, but from above. While you drink your morning coffee on the expansive terrace, it would not be unusual to see whales playing in the ocean below. During the daytime, ocean breezes keep you comfortable and at night the mountain air from behind lets you sleep in comfort without air conditioning. Temperatures on the terrace seldom go below 75 degrees or above 85 degrees year round. The main house is an exposed lower level, 2 story structure of 6000 sq. ft.
