Located at the point of secluded Playa Zancudo, sitting 20m from the beach, ZWB&B perfectly overlooks the Golfo Dulce and has one of the best views of Matapalo in town. All from the enormous and recently renovated veranda, you can see species of birds, butterflies, sloths, and monkeys. Pick various fresh fruits and nuts (when in season) right off the trees. Rich in Tico culture with a laidback vibe, this secret tropical paradise awaits you. ¡Pura Vida!

The space
Guest rooms are equipped with all the basics you’d need for your Costa Rica getaway. The guest cabin (2 bedrooms & 1 bath) can sleep a maximum of 6 with one queen and four twin size beds. Perfect for large families and friend groups! Recently renovated with beautiful wood flooring, open ceilings, and exposed varnished beams, it provides a spacious comfortable feel. Television, mini-fridge, and desk spaces included. The Jack-n-Jill bathroom (which joins the two bedrooms) features a large shower with hot water, full-length mirror, and vanity space. Enjoy a fresh cup of local Costa Rican coffee with breakfast and local produce included every morning throughout your stay.

Wake up to the sweet sounds of birds outside your room and waves crashing less than 100 yards away. Monkeys, Sloths, Scarlet Macaws, Parrots, Iguanas, and more have all been spotted from the large veranda. We’ve also seen whales breach in the Gulf! Keep your eyes peeled and you’ll be shocked at the spectacular wildlife and ecosystem that surrounds you.

Guest access
Guests have access to the grounds including all of the coconuts, mangos and citrus fruits one can handle (in season). A 2-minute walk down the public path and you are on a secluded black sand beach, many times all to yourself!

Rinse and cool off in the outdoor shower after a sunny day on the beach or boat, and enjoy an afternoon snooze in a hammock on the veranda.

Guests share the large veranda with the hosts; however, the main house is separate from the guest cabin, which you have all to yourselves.

There is no guest access to the kitchen in the main house, but meals can be arranged for guests upon reservation. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate.

Surfboards, Kayaks, SUPs, Boogie boards, Fishing and Snorkeling Gear are all available for rent upon request.

Other things to note
Customized All-Inclusive vacation packages are available just for you! Don’t want to fiddle with the nickel and dimes, make travel and excursion arrangements, or plan for meals? We’ve got you covered! Message us prior to making your reservations and we’re happy to assist you in everything from your arrival to departure. We will work together to develop a personalized vacation itinerary to meet all your expectations for a dream Costa Rican getaway. All you have to do is show up, relax, and have fun!

Empty beaches, quiet accommodations, and solitude in nature are all benefits to our secluded location. At Zancudo WEST, you are given the opportunity to fully unplug and escape your regular daily life while on vacation. Live in the present and enjoy the benefits that come from being Wi-Fi free. Should you require internet access, there are a handful of restaurants in town that provide WiFi for their customers. Let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange transportation to and from whenever you’d like.

There is no ATM in Zancudo. We recommend getting cash at the airport in San José or at one of the ATMs in Golfito. Many stores and restaurants accept credit and debit cards; however, we recommend having cash for those that do not. Nearly all tours and excursions require a cash payment.
