Where the PAcific Ocean and the LuSH Tropical Jungle Meet in Perfect Harmony

Pacific Azure Vacation Rentals, Mal Pais

Set back on 53,000 sq/ft of tropical paradise, the property pretty much hugs the Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve. Our location is perfect for those who seek to be away from the crowds yet a short drive from the beaches, the best surf spots and downtown for some fun nightlife, great dining options.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is literally the town of Mal Pais, which in essence is a small fishing village bordering the Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve (Costa Rica's first national park). Our vacation rentals are a short walk to the Mal Pais beaches where you can find some amazing tide pools on low tide. In fact one of the most beautiful beaches along this stretch of coastline called Playa Cuevas aka The Swiss Beach,  is a few minutes from the house.

A great perk our guests get to enjoy is our proximity to the Mal Pais Fishery. There you can purchase fresh catches from the local fisherman straight from the line. They'll filet the fish for you on the spot so can cook or grill it at the comfort of your home.

The Town of Mal Pais

Within a short walk from our property you'll find a small grocery store called Super Chico,  which is very convenient to buy all the basics you need. 

We also have Mary's Restaurant a short walk from the property, it's a local favoriteThey open for dinner and lunch serving some great farm raised daily specials, local seafood, wood fired pizza, some yummy cocktails. There's even a couple of pool tables... an overall great atmosphere.

For this those who like Stand Up Paddling, there's Freedom Riding SUP and it's right next to Super Chico. You can rent SUPs from them or go on super fun tour right off the Mal Pais reefs.

Playa Carmen / Downtown

Playa Carmen is the main beach and the downtown area, it's right in between Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. It's a beautiful beach with lots of sand, plenty of shade. A great spot to relax, surf or grab a bite to eat at the beach front restaurant. Here you will also find banks, ATM machines, plenty dining options and some fun nightlife. It's exactly 3.5km (2miles) from the property, less the 10 minutes by car or ATV.

Mal Pais is the perfect vacation destination for those who seek an authentic, off the beaten path travel experience.
