Casa Gavilan” [Hawk House] is located in the tropical rainforests of the OSA Peninsula which is surrounded on one side by the pristine Golfo Dulce [Sweet Gulf] and on the other side by the glorious expansive Pacific Ocean. The house is only 3 miles from Cabo Matapalo which is known for excellent surfing, yet good surfing is as close as 1/4 mile away. This area of Costa Rica remains one of the most unspoiled and biodiverse places, not just in this friendly country, but in the world. Home to Corcovado National Park and more, this ecosystem supports wildlife that includes four species of monkeys, flocks of scarlet macaws, toucans, sloths, iguanas, anteaters, butterflies, exotic insects, endless flora, and countless birds. The nearby gulf is a route for whales and dolphins. Sport fishing is a popular draw as well as availability to fish local shores and river systems. There are many options for adventure, exploration and peaceful serenity in this unique, remote jungle paradise.
