When you tell your friends you're staying at the The Kurà Design Villas, the only appropriate response should be a wicked "Livin' on the Edge" air guitar solo, because that's exactly where this six-villa boutique hotel sits on the Costa Rican rainforest.Suite VillasThese perfect hideaways have an open floor plan, a spacious private terrace with glass veranda, and an ocean-viewing "Double Rain Shower" that's almost as glorious as a double rainbow.Infinity VillasOpen up the teak wood shades to reveal the ocean-facing sliding glass door and peer down onto the "Whale's Tail" sandbar. This is when the provided binoculars come into play.Infinity PoolThe uninterrupted, 180-degree view of the Pacific horizon from the salt water infinity pool almost seems endless, unlike those sunbathing chairs, which're clearly limited. Dining & BarSwing by their open air restaurant for Costa Rican fusion cuisine that uses locally-sourced tropical ingredients, and be sure to grab Costa Rican style 'tails from their Diablitos Bar where, surprisingly, a Fireball is not the drink of choice. SpaThere's also a spa, with extremely nude women getting massages, apparently.Costa Rican Jungle Adventures Head into the rainforest to take advantage of their more extreme activities: white-water rafting, ziplining, horseback riding, and waterfall rappelling. Then quickly go back to that infinity pool to snag a seat and relax!Local BeachesWithin 15-25mins of the villas, there are numerous local beaches where you can lay out at or grab a surf lesson, including Uvita, Piñuela, and Hermosa, which means "beautiful", unlike your surfing skill.Whale WatchingSpend a half-day looking at or snorkeling with the humpback whale (depending on the season), and maybe high-five year-round residents including bottlenose and spotted dolphins.Diving and Snorkeling Caño IslandCruise out to the Caño Island Biological Reserve for diving and snorkeling trips with celebrity sightings of turtles, white-tipped reef sharks, stingrays, bull sharks, barracudas, puffers, and even a Steven Tyler look-alike, the moray eel!
