Hi, my name is Evi and I am the manager of the the beautiful new properties that are Havana Lodge.!

I’m happy to assist you with anything you may need during your stay, from booking tours to giving advice on the best surf spots, restaurants, activities, yoga studios in the area. I’m here to make sure you have the best vacation possible! The multilingual staff at Havana Apartments are happy to provide information on the best sights and activities in the surrounding area. Yoga, surf lessons and surf trips, horseback riding, hiking, ATV tours and fishing ,. We also offer spa treatments onsite, as well as childcare, airport shuttle, storage and dry cleaning.
Located in the lush southwestern corner of the Nicoya Peninsula, the laid-back neighborhood of Mal Pais is one of Costa Rica’s top destinations for unspoiled nature and world-class waves. Just minutes from the booming surf town of Santa Teresa, this quiet village spread along a rambling costal road feels like it’s a million miles away from everything. 3 minutes drive north of Havana Apartments is the “crossroads,” where you can find banks, surf shops and restaurants, and the road leading to Santa Teresa. To the south of the property, the Mal Pais road ends at a local fishing hamlet and Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve.
