Our blue house is located in a fishermen village / comunity with no tourist at all where kids play in the street and house doors are open. Beach it's less than 10 minutes walking (you need to cross the main road) and up to the mountains we have the secret and hidden Poza. The value of our house is the place where it is located more than the house itself. We want to give you the experience of being a local, if you prefer and isolated house, please don't come.
The whole village it's a fishermen community, with plenty of kids and a little school. We have built our house with our own hands in 2016 and although it's finished some little details are still missing, for example, wood needs to be painted as well as the bathroom piece of furniture. That's why the price is much lower than other houses the same size and zone. We have a big backyard, which one cats and chickens from other houses like to visit. There's no hot water in the whole village but you won't need it!! Monkeys, living just some meters aways, will wake you up with their noise every morning.
Eulalia and Eric are our fantastic neighbors who take care of the house. She cooks tico food like nobody does and he offers boat tours for a very reasonable price if you want to go diving or just sailing a bit on the zone. There is one little pulperia where you can get all necessary for living. No fresh meat, only frozen, vegetables and fruits can be bought direct to the farmer when his pass with his car by the house.
We are proud to say there's no cafeteria, bar or shop in dominicalito, just la pupleria.
If you are looking for restaurants, souvenirs shops and hotels you can go to Dominical, just 4 kms aways, where you will find all this.
Again, it's important to know some details of the house are not ready yet, but these are simply details which ones doesn't affect the living.
Also, let me insist about water, it comes from the river, so it depends on the day that it comes a lot or very few.
No paper or others can be thrown in the wc, otherwise it will get stuck immediately.
There's a bus a stop in the entrance of the village. Buses going to Quepos, San Jose, etc...or to Uvita. The bus schedules are a bit complicated in Costa Rica. Theres a big bus station in Uvita, 15 kms from Dominical. Here you can also find a big supermarket and the banks.
From all the places we could have build a house, we were looking for the most secure place where our kids could go free, we live half of the year in Barcelona so where looking for something completly differnet, a place with almost no cars, no tourist and with the best waves to surf. That place existed! and it was with no doubt Dominicalito.
It is also located next to the best beaches in the south Pacific, playa hermosa, bahia ballena, playa arco...
Cataratas de Nauyaca is a very good place to go to and if you come.., then I will let you know about our secret, that beautiful Poza very few know about it :)

We would like all our guest to get to know the locals from Costa Rica, bein then more than tourist. I would definitely recommend you to ask for a meal to Eulalia and go for a boat tour with Eric (both under little payment) Let your kids play in the street with the rest. Its 100% safe. Leave your door open while your are at home.
