10-Day Costa Rica Vacation

Donor: Lynette and Will Raap

Get are going for 10 days to a private beachside home in paradise!

Welcome to "Cantamar" (Song of the Sea), a special place with the most beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, surfers, fishermen and sunsets…even whales. Located in Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, the rental is a large guest studio within a private estate, with own entrance, a kitchen, and full bath. It is perfect for a couple, but can sleep five. An outdoor shower (if you have never haven't fully lived!), patio and the wide Pacific at your doorstep, there is everything you need to step into a tropical retreat. This is not a cruise ship-esque beach; you will be in a private haven with dramatic waves and glorious sunsets. You'll have access to 2 paddle boards and 3 kayaks for exploring the local estuary. Want to snorkel? There is equipment for both kid and adult sizes, and 2 boogie boards for riding the waves.

So much to do and explore in the area! A nearby touring company can help you visit waterfalls, go on a jungle zip-line with or without horses. An hour away, you can spend the day on a covered boat tour on the Tempisque River and lots of other awesome activities. Want to totally indulge? Spend the day at a luxury day spa, about half an hour away. To top it all off, there is a plethora of good to excellent, kid friendly, restaurants in the area, many offering gluten free and vegan options.

Depending on when you book, owners Lynette and Will Raap (founding family of our school) might be there and will happily provide tips and hospitality.

Good through August 2019. There are no specific dates, and you can choose to stay for as long as you want, up to 10 days. Lynette recommends that you book your flights as soon as you win this item!

You will need to arrange your own travel and car rental.
