Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Casa Chameleon Mal Pais is on the southern edge of a 140-kilometre stretch of glorious mountains and sun-kissed beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula, one of the world's seven Blue Zones.

Rooms at Casa Chameleon Mal Pais

The villas are exceptionally luxurious and spacious, with four-poster beds with sea views, furnishings of locally-sourced woods, and terraces with private pools and swaying hammocks overlooking the mountains. You are guaranteed blissful seclusion here. 

Food & Drink

The hotel's menus feature fresh, wholesome ingredients such as the catch of the day from the local fishermen, embodying the sea and farm-to-table philosophy, and dishes can be adapted to satisfy your every food wish. Enjoy it all from your cliffside table or by the pool. Wake up to a breakfast of tropical fruit and gallo pinto (a hearty national dish of beans and eggs) on your balcony, and in the evening, sip a refreshing smoothie or cocktail in the poolside bar while gazing at the magisterial sunset.


Stretch out with a yoga session or indulge in a massage from the comfort of your villa’s private balcony.

Activities at Casa Chameleon Mal Pais

The consistent quality of waves means opportunities for surfers are plentiful. Explore the depths of the sea by snorkelling and scuba diving where you'll meet colourful wonders of the ocean such as angelfish or hawksbill turtles.

Back on land, the rugged landscapes are spectacular - explore the ancient jungles of Mal Pais, journey through the treetops on a canopy tour, swim in waterfalls, go horse riding through the jungle or along the beach, or take a trip to the Cabo Blanco nature reserve, an ideal spot for birdwatching and hiking. If you want to travel around the area, ATVs (quad bikes) are readily available to rent and are the preferred transport option for locals.
