Our spacious beachfront property has been landscaped with care to promote privacy and More to welcome wildlife. We have eight thatched-roof tent cabins and three beautifully designed vacation rental homes, Casa Rio Sombrero, Casa Playa Sombrero and Casa Troya.The houses and tent platforms are just steps away from Playa Sombrero as well as the mouth of Rio Sombrero, an excellent place to take a dip in fresh water. Playa Sombrero is known for having nice gentle waves that are great for learning to surf and cruising on a long board.The property boasts a bamboo framed, beachfront yoga platform. Guests are welcome to use the facility for their own practice or set up private yoga classes with a local instructor.We also offer a wide variety of activities that will give you the opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of this unique part of Central America while kayaking, climbing trees, rappelling down waterfalls, or simply zip-lining through the forest canopy.Of course you are also welcome just to relax by the pool, have a spa day, a massage, an acupuncture or one of the many other treatments offered by the therapists of our small cosmopolitan local community.Here at Boca Sombrero we are dedicated to making your stay with us as exciting, pleasurable and as healthful as possible.
