 Villa Varsovia  


Standing alone on a breezy hill, this vacation rental is a secluded paradise surrounded by lush jungle. Fruit trees grow in the garden; playful monkeys are regular visitors; curious iguanas live on the grounds; and scarlet macaws fly above in pairs, squawking like an old married couple. The villa is on the central Pacific coast and within walking distance of the endless beach of Esterillos. Off the beaten path, it is located between the bustling town of Jaco and world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. Villa Varsovia is a modern interpretation of a traditional open-air Spanish villa with a very private interior courtyard that includes a 16'x32' pool and rancho. Polish owners, Margaret and Andrew Wieladek, who permanently reside in Canada, built the villa in 2012.

Los Ranchos Cabins on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica

The Hotel Rancho Coral was built in 2000 to provide top quality accommodation for visitors of Playa Esterillos. The location originally functioned as a surf school, and as time passed the Rancho Coral evolved into the fantastic beach hotel it is today. It is now operated by Wilberth and Eva who take pride in great service. It has always been known for providing a different service with a quality and warmth that makes guests feel like family. We invite you to browse our photos and to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to serving you!

GOFUNDME Campaign to rebuild the fishing pier at Ft Clinch State Park, Florida


Fort Clinch State Park offers our community so many recreational resources and the fishing pier is a large draw for public support of the park from all over the country. The park relies on these visitors to pay for the maintenance of the park and more importantly the maintenance and upkeep of the historical site of the Civil War Fort.


October 13, 2016: Nassua County Public Official Announcement:
Fort Clinch State Park’s Fishing Pier is off limits after Hurricane Matthew caused considerable damage to the structure. According to Jason Mahon, public information specialist, “The Florida Park Service is currently working to reopen all parks impacted by Hurricane Matthew and to cleanup parks that have already reopened, including Fort Clinch State Park. Due to the damage sustained to the pier, it is currently closed to ensure visitor safety. DEP has hired an engineering firm to perform an analysis of the structural integrity of the pier.”

The State of Florida has limited resources at it's disposal due to the areas affected by this very large and damaging storm. Note: Mathew was a CAT 4 Hurricane moving North along the coast for at least half the length of the State, before reducing to a CAT 2 Hurricane adjacent to Amelia Island.  We are concerned that as limited funds get used elsewhere in the State, the Fort Clinch Fishing Pier repair and replacement project will  go by the wayside as a low priority project to complete.
