Around 30 degrees Celsius and similar to climate of northern area and a lot less humid than the Southern part of Costa Rica like Jaco. Even in the “Green Season” (end of May to end of October), we do have beautiful weather. It normally rains in the later afternoon or night and there are several weeks in June and July with no rain at all.
The water comes from a well within the Roma del Mar development.
Yes, many of the villas are for rent. Our onsite rental manager takes care of the check in and check out of the guests and renters.
The closest way from San Jose is taking the ferry from Puntarenas to Playa Naranjo. When coming off the ferry, you turn left onto the road to Paquera (turn left at first crossroads, the gas station is located at right hand side). After 1,5 miles there is a little village called Bajos Negros. You will see a big sign for Playa Blanca and Roma del Mar, please take a left and turn left again after 500 m into the big entrance with the Columns. Follow the street for about 2 minutes and you will see a red building on your right-hand side. This is our onsite grocery store where you will meet our rental manager.
We have high speed Internet in all Villas!
Besides our new restaurant Aroma del Mar, there are some restaurants close by, but everything still low key as this area is not one of the big tourism places of Costa Rica– just come and check it out yourself!

Another option is the airport in Liberia, which is north on the Peninsula of Nicoya and only 2 hours’ drive from Roma del Mar. The main advantage is that you do not depend on the ferry schedule and there is very little traffic.
