For years, the Dominical area was a sleepy community of fishermen and farmers. Even today, the daily catch arrives on pangas at daybreak and an occasional cattle drive will hold up traffic on the Costanera (the coastal highway). There are few hotels and lodges and no towns of any size.
The village of Dominical, the largest town in the area, is unmistakably a laid-back surfing community exemplifying the southern coast's “Pura Vida” attitude, complete with dirt roads, surf shacks, t-shirt shops, and beach vendors.
Over time, the Dominical area became – and still is – a Mecca for surfers, fishermen, and naturalists alike. As the word spread about the Dominical area's dramatic coastline and idyllic lushness, development has come. But, these developers and investors have defined their visions for the future with a commitment to sustainable development – development that benefits the natural setting as well as the local community. We have some excellent vacation homes available, as well as land available for construction and development.
