Star Mountain is a 225-acre jungle oasis in the mountains of Mal Pais, the most exclusive
neighborhood in Costa Rica. The extensive land forms a contiguous stretch of forest with Cabo
Blanco National Park, Costa Rica’s oldest nature reserve. Star Mountain is a lush mosaic of jungle,
rolling hills, mountains, streams and hiking trails with many plateau views of the light sandy beaches
of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa.
The beach is only 2 kilometers away downhill and many of Costa Rica’s finest surf breaks are within
minutes. For people seeking a tranquil setting to decompress, Star Mountain offers a retreat where

context of the dry tropical rain forest. The highest elevations peak over 300 meters, overlooking the
ocean as well as the dense jungle canopy of the valleys.
