SAN JUANILLO, COSTA RICA3 bedrooms, 2½ baths, sleeps 6
At the crossroads of the Pacific Ocean and the rain forest on Costa Rica's serene Nicoya Peninsula sits Casa Luna, a contemporary white-stone villa. Bifold glass doors and windows facilitate views of mountains and ocean from every room. A private deck and Jacuzzi are a bonus off the master bedroom, but the sleek infinity pool is perfect for experiencing Costa Rica's eco-tourism attractions up close—howler monkeys, scarlet macaws, and agoutis roam the forest canopy, and may even make a cameo on your private patio. Bonus: There are three beaches just down the hill from the villa.
