Our names are Sandra and Garth, and we are two Canadians who purchased and developed El Verde Misterioso. We came to Costa Rica from Canada in an effort to escape the cold winters, and after only a short stay we fell in love with Coco Beach and have been here ever since.

El Verde Misterioso is designed around community living and enjoying the comforts of home in a relaxing tropical atmosphere.

The El Verde Misterioso community is made up of 18 easy living, two bedroom villas on five acres of jungle complete with a shared covered rancho and 1,000 sq. ft. swimming pool. The monkeys can be found in many of the trees on the resort and will often join you as you enjoy a cool drink.

The private villas are offered at a very reasonable cost to allow you to explore the many adventures that are close by; some of which are even free.

Coco Beach is surrounded by eight other easily accessible amazing beaches, which offer snorkeling off shore, private boat tours and many other water activities. Some of the other activities offered nearby include, zip lining though the trees, relaxing in local hot springs, and exploring the mountains on horseback.

If you find that the homes at El Verde Misterioso are not large enough to accommodate your family or extended family, there are other elegant ocean view homes with ample space available for rent.
