Oceanfront tropical palace at Palacio Tropical
Tambor, Costa Rica
Bienvenudos a Costa Rica! (Welcome to Costa Rica!)
Located behind the private guard gate of Tango Mar Resort, Palacio Tropical is a 10,000 square foot oceanfront estate nestled in the lush rainforest of Costa Rica’s finest Pacific Coast beachfront community. Considered Costa Rica’s premier beach-front estate (the only six (6) star private home in Costa Rica), many celebrities have called Palacio Tropical home. Palacio Tropical has played host to numerous weddings, family reunions, and entourages. Our home and staff are well equipped to handle even the most discriminating groups.
Palacio Tropical is the perfect setting for any large celebration of family and friends. Whether you are planning a reunion, anniversary, special birthday or just a large multi-family vacation, our direct oceanfront home promises a special occasion you will never forget.
With seven (7) bedrooms and ten (10) baths, Palacio Tropical can easily accommodate 18 people. In addition, you’ll have your own maids, servers and pool boy as well as a full-time cook. Our driver/concierge (Adrian) is awesome! Adrian will help you set up all of your tours; he is bilingual and will take very good care of you.
There are massive indoor and outdoor eating areas, an adult pool, a kiddie pool and a pool bar stocked daily by your pool boy. Every bedroom is a master suite and has its own separate air-conditioning system, satellite TV, ocean view and luxurious bath.
We can provide authentic Costa Rican dancers and/or a band for your function. We can arrange buffet style or sit down service. The choice is yours. And of course, there are plenty of activities for everyone, no matter their interests: fishing, golf, shopping, surfing, horseback riding, zip-lining, ATV tours – you name it.
Palacio Tropical is directly on the beach and sits at the end of a crescent-shaped beach which extends for two  miles. We searched for five (5) years trying to find the most private and quiet beach in Costa Rica; I think we found it!
Guests rave about the canopy/waterfall tour in Montezuma [about 25 minutes away]. Other popular tours include ATV tours, snorkeling/SCUBA to Tortuga Island, horseback riding on the beach, nature tours through Curu and Cabo Blanco Preserves, surfing and of course FISHING, both deep sea and in-shore!
The deep sea fishing excursions are incredible and the big marlins are plentiful! Costa Rica is one of the world’s best “big fish” locations. If you’d be satisfied with mahi-mahi, tuna and other “smaller” fish [10 – 20 lbs], the in-shore fishing excursions are less expensive. There’s nothing like catching a tuna or mahi-mahi at noon and having the Palacio Tropical staff grill and serve it for dinner!
Palacio Tropical is located within Tango Mar Resort and the resort has a beautiful nine  hole par 3 course that winds and meanders through the rainforest. No need to bring clubs, the resort will rent them to you. Additionally, Los Delfines Golf and Country Club has a spectacular nine  hole course that has recently been stocked with thousands of colorful macaws, toucans and parrots. It’s a fantastic experience that you will not soon forget. It gives the term “birdie” a whole new meaning!

The house was gorgeous and the view was magnificent. We loved spending quality time with our 2 daughters and their husbands and 1 grandson swimming in the pool, playing games on the patio and hanging out on the beach in front of the house. The house is very private and the beach feels secluded. The service, food and accommodations were second. The sound system throughout the home was a wonderful feature and we enjoyed having our own air conditioning to control in the bedrooms. We recommend a stay at this property if you'd like to experience true luxury!”
50th birthday celebration
Our first time to Costa Rica and we had the time of our lives. My wife and I celebrated my 50th birthday with 7 other couples. The house and location is amazing. We were taken care of like royalty by 6 staff members for the 7 day trip. The food was fantastic. We will definitely go back. ”
Let's just say that the pictures don't lie. An amazing estate with an amazing staff that doesn't disappoint. ”
Our first trip to Costa Rica was epic and all we can say is WoW! Palacio Tropical is such a beautiful home with all of the amenities. Full service in every way. We took 6 other couples (7 couples / 14 people total) and everyone had the trip of a lifetime. Kim was a pleasure to deal with from the start handling every detail including meals and transportation from the airport to the home and then from the home back to the airport. Every meal was prepared by the staff at home and every meal was incredible. They even made us a great breakfast "to go" for our trek back to the airport when we left. We had a driver and a 14 seat van and the staff was happy to take us anywhere we wanted to go. The home works best for 7 couples or 14 people. 7 main bedrooms in the home all with bathrooms. 14 seats at the dinner table and 14 seats in the van. No need for a rental car! I highly recommend the meal package since there are very few restaurant choices around the home. The food was incredible and I don't think that we could have had a better meal at a restaurant. There is so much adventure right by the home. A great beach right out the backdoor and waterfalls that spill right into the ocean within walking distance from the home. Zip-lining, great surfing beaches, waterfalls, hiking and other adventures that are just a short drive away. All of our friends are all still talking about "Our Epic Trip to Costa Rica"! We can't wait to go back!”
Lovely home and stay!
We had a lovely getaway at this gorgeous property last week. We had 4 young children with u and the pool and access to beach were perfect. The staff is just lovely and very accommodating and the property is very well taken care of!”
Fabulous property in Lovely Costa Rica
Kim was an awesome host...he provided clear and helpful information to plan our stay. His on site manager Jon was also friendly and amazing. Our guests loved everything about the property, and had a trip of a life time. Looking forward to a possible return visit. Highly recommended.”
