Mar Vista: Luxury Flamingo Community with Panoramic Ocean Views
Mar Vista is located on the highway between Brasilito and Flamingo, and is sometimes considered to be part of Brasilito, though it’s really an exclusive enclave all its own.
Mar Vista is well-known in the area for the Gracia Restaurant, which has a big infinity pool and a swim-up bar with panoramic ocean views of Potrero Bay, Brasilito Bay and the Las Catalinas Islands. For both locals and visitors, it’s the perfect place to spend a day eating, drinking, swimming and soaking in the inspiring vistas.
The La Paz Community School, located on property donated by Mar Vista, is among the very best private bilingual schools on the entire Guanacaste coast. It offers international baccalaureates and excellent pre-K through 12 college-preparatory education. The proximity of this school to home is a huge plus for families, saving them long daily commutes to school.
