Renting in Esterillos, Costa Rica is a fantastic option for beach lovers. Although Esterillos has a laid back, tranquilo feel, Jaco is just a short drive away and you can be in the Central Valley in 1.5 hours.
Jaco has lots of shopping, big grocery stores and many restaurants and night life. San Jose gives you access to the international airport.
Esterillos is a long stretch of beach divided up into the East and West sections because the beach is so long.
You can find lovely homes for rent although many are rented as vacation rentals, so try to look in off season to get the most options.
You can also find smaller and more economical options without and ocean view that are still an easy walk to the beach.
Esterillos is a nice place to rent to find a really tranquil beach environment without being in the middle of nowhere.
