About Us

A Secluded Paradise

Are you tired of large impersonal hotels? Do you prefer sharing a smaller place with just a few folks? Then Sol Y Mar might be the place for you.

Along the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, near the old banana port of Golfito, a long sandy beach stretches for 6 miles along the warm blue waters of the Golfo Dulce. As far as the eye can see, the sparkling waters are fringed by coconut palms and almond trees.

This remote and un-touristy region is one of the last areas of Costa Rica to be discovered by foreign travelers — it features some of the most beautiful and untouched areas of the country. Wildlife and sea life abound in this spectacular corner of Costa Rica at Playa Zancudo. Please look at our map to see where Playa Zancudo is located in Costa Rica.

For accommodations with a casual and relaxing atmosphere, the Cabinas Sol Y Mar, located right on the beach in Playa Zancudo, offers a retreat for people looking to get away from it all.

Sol y Mar means Sun and Sea. This is a friendly, laid-back place with a casual and relaxing atmosphere appealing to guests looking for someplace unique – the Cabinas Sol Y Mar is un-touristy – different from typical vacation resorts.
