Prados Del Sol
Your best family friendly choice for Costa Rica.
In October 2022, SpaceX's ambitious satellite project applied for a license to introduce its technology in Costa Rica. This news filled us at Prados Del Sol with excitement, and we are thrilled to announce that on June 2, 2023, the government finally approved the license. As soon as Starlink made the sign-up option available way back in 2021, we wasted no time and placed our order within days.
Starlink is a satellite internet constellation developed by SpaceX, the aerospace company founded by Elon Musk. It aims to provide global broadband internet coverage by deploying a network of thousands of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO). These satellites work in conjunction with ground transceivers to establish a high-speed internet connection to users on Earth.
Starlink internet offers speeds ranging from 50 to 200 Mbps, although users might encounter slower speeds due to network-related challenges, and according to a testimony I have read it ranges from 25-65Mbps download speed and 2.5-7 upload speed, but if you try to upload a large file, it gets throttled after some arbitrary number of bytes.
We chose Starlink because it's more reliable and faster than any other options in our area. With Starlink, we can enjoy a stable and consistent internet connection, along with faster speeds for smooth online activities. It's the best choice for meeting our internet needs.
Prados del Sol is nestled near the coast of Guanacaste, a few minutes up the road between Sámara and Nosara.
Prados del sol is a collection of large 2 bedroom townhouse-style units available for rent in a gated secure complex, just minutes from secluded and popular ‘full amenity’ beaches.
These family oriented bedroom bungalows feature air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer, outdoor patio with table/chairs. Comparing to many of our neighbors within a 1 hour drive: You can spend a lot more to get a lot less. You can spend the same price to get into places that are much smaller with no kitchen. Many of the less expensive locations can only reliably be reached by vehicle in the dry season – in the green season (rainy) their roads are often not passable! So … while yes we are biased … for quiet, family friendly options, having a relaxing vacation, we have the best combination of price and features.
No smoking and no pets are permitted.
The complex includes free unlimited Wi-Fi & a shared pool and barbeque area. The local grocery stores are very well stocked so you can enjoy the quiet & solitude of home cooking or you can choose from one of the many restaurants located within 15 minutes, and if you need a hardware store – there are two within 10km, one to the West, one to the East.. And even more if you go 20 minutes in either direction. And more if you go 25 or more minutes. Well, you get the idea!
Maid service is available upon request on a weekly basis.
These units give you the experience of a rural Costa Rica setting, away from the noise and ‘action’ of a typical holiday, while giving you easy access to lots of alternatives for more just 15 or more minutes away. We are situated in the middle of a small rural community of 200 people. This is not the ‘downtown core’ experience of San Jose. This is not the ‘Standard Canadian or USA city experience’ of Escazu (near San Jose)
Yet we are located in the middle of the most popular tourist destinations in Costa Rica. Located mid-way (10 km) between the popular tourist destinations of Sámara and Nosara.
You can rent anything you need…quads, horses, fishing boats, surfboards, boogie boards, scuba equipment…the list goes on.
Go on ocean/jungle/river boat tours, zip line through the canopy; enjoy horseback riding on the beach, bird watching, coffee tours, chocolate tours, wind-surfing, sea kayaking, deep sea fishing; take a surf lesson, see up to 1000’s of turtles coming to breed (July to December), visit a wild life reserve, or see beautiful waterfalls.
Our location is 5-10 minutes from several very secluded beaches, and 20 minutes from many more popular beaches.
We are 1 km inland from the Pacific Ocean & the humidity level is less than the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.
The sand beaches are beautiful & the water is warm year round, you can just walk into the ocean without any feeling of ‘shock’ – the temperature is wonderful.
Enjoy some of the most captivating coastline scenery on the planet!! Every beach, East or West is different, go to one or two a day.
In order to experience all there is to offer, a vehicle or ATV is desirable. But for 5000 colones you can go daily from the bus depot in San Jose and be dropped off 10 feet from the Prados del Sol front gates.
