Sleep in comfort thanks to air conditioning and ceiling fans, and watch the sun rise over the ocean from the villa’s balconies.
With stucco walls, a tiled roof and traditional furnishings, Palacio Tropical takes its inspiration from sophisticated Mediterranean villas. Wrought-iron chandeliers, a spiral staircase and terracotta floors are an elegant backdrop for the living room’s inviting leather sofas and armchairs. The dining room’s brick ceiling and upholstered chairs are an ideal spot for more formal family dinners, while island seating in the gourmet kitchen is perfect for breakfast or snacks.
From the villa’s beachfront location in a gated community, it’s a 2-minute walk to the Tango Mar resort, tennis courts, a golf course, exercise facilities, a restaurant and a grocery store.

The dream was to build a luxury villa in a gated community in Costa Rica. There was a spectacular beachfront home site available and it was quickly purchased. The owners hired Omar Bonilla, one of Costa Rica’s finest architects, to design a home that emphasized the home site’s location and embellished the spectacular ocean views. After six (6) months of design, construction was started on Palacio Tropical. Over eighty (80) workers and craftsmen were hired from all over Central America to build Palacio Tropical. It took over a year to complete the home, however, the owners then had to furnish this tropical palace.
An interior design firm from world-famous Hilton Head Island was hired and in the end, over $250,000 of furniture was purchased for Palacio Tropical.
The dream is now reality. Come visit Palacio Tropical and experience the best that Costa Rica has to offer.

Which side of the road to drive on in Costa Rica?
As a tourist in Costa Rica, if you have a valid driver's license, you are legal to drive here during your stay. In Costa Rica you drive on the right side (just like USA or Canada). Driving signs are in Spanish and in kilometers. The normal speed limit on the highway is 90 kiometers per hour. There are many sight seeing opportunities, so you may want to consider a car rental during your stay.
Palacio Tropical is gorgeous and you may just want to relax and enjoy. Either way, we know you will have a wonderful stay with us.
