The area between Dominical and Uvita on the southern Pacific coast is famous for its striking landscape where the mountains come right down to the sea. Not subject to the North's windy, dusty season during the months of December to April, visitors to the Dominical region will enjoy year-round greenery and lushness of jungles and forests.
While the local airport in Quepos (30 minutes north of Flying Toucans) may be used, many guests choose to begin their adventure from the main international airport in San Jose (SJO) thus allowing them to see the varied landscape on the way down. The drive down to the villa is 3 hours, not including how many times you stop to take in the awesome views en route. Flying Toucans is six miles south of Dominical on an excellent road. If you can ever pull yourself away from the villa and view you will find abundant choices of dining, shopping, and activities close by.
Other Activities: Ziplines, nature treks, kayaking tours, white water rafting, atv tours. Bird and animal watching, surfing, swimming, beach-combing, hiking, horseback tours to beaches and waterfalls, zip lines, day trips to Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, butterfly farm, ultra-light flightseeing tours, sport fishing.
About an hour north of us is Quepos (Manuel Antonio National Park). The casual villages of Dominical and Uvita offer international and local style dining, banks/ATM, a bakery, grocery stores, English-speaking doctors and dentist, pharmacies, real estate offices, souvenir shops, surfboard rentals and visitor information and booking services for local activities. A 2-minute walk from the villa is a small and beautiful chic hotel with casual dining and full spa services. The villages of Uvita , 6 miles south, also pffers the lovely Ballena National Park, home of the 'Whale Tail' (as is seen from Flying Toucans). Absent from our corner of the world are large numbers of tourists, along with no suits/ties/pantyhose, traffic lights, chemtrails, smog, parking problems... come see for yourself...it's paradise!

About John and Mary Reilly
Greetings from our villa called Flying Toucans! We first visited Costa Rica in November of 1998 on our honeymoon. Having both lived on Maui for many years and traveled extensively internationally, we were interested in a new adventure and a memorable challenge. We had read about the country for several years prior to our visit and it sounded as though Costa Rica fit all of our criteria. After exploring the various regions of the country, meeting the people and having a delightful time we knew we were destined to relocate. As it happened, on this first trip, we discovered this one-of-a-kind property and purchased it. This set in motion our plans of eventually relocating. After more preparation, we made the move and actually lived in a tent on the property for several months while designing Flying Toucans. This allowed us to understand how best to showcase the awesome views and the wildlife while combining luxury with tropical living. Now that Flying Toucans has become a reality, we offer to share it with you. With years of experience in the luxury tourism industry, we believe we have created a truly unique beautiful place for you to call home while you embark on your own adventures. If you have been looking and looking for that special destination you will never forget, you have found it! Hope to see you here soon, :) John and Mary Reilly
