The topography is unique, views of the ocean to one side and jungle views to the other, and with beach access all within reach, many options for all tastes and budgets are offered. With neighbors around, but none in sight, properties are built with modesty, others lavish and luxurious. Without a doubt, they offer all the comforts one requires. It can rain and be sunny on the same day and at the same time, but give it ten minutes and see the weather change in the blink of an eye. Leisure activities include visiting a mountain neighbor for a sunset, conversation and glass of wine; looking up at night to see a clear starring sky or a full moon light up the night; and going to a backyard waterfall BBQ for a little Sunday Funday with friends, family and visitors alike is always a great way to end a week and resource.
