     The Flying Scorpion offers you one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches, Playa San Miguel.
     Wake early to welcome the dawn with yoga; go for long beach walks with the setting sun. Spend lazy days reading in one of our hammocks, or sunbathing beside the breathtaking Pacific Ocean.
     Or be active! Epic surfing, surf lessons, jungle hiking, guided waterfall tours, horseback riding, world-class fishing on- or off-shore, ATV tours, and many more excursions await you.
     The Flying Scorpion includes two newly-renovated houses, five seaside cabinas, a studio apartment with balcony deck, a fully stocked bar and restaurant on the Pacific Ocean, and a wildlife-filled estuary.
     All rooms boast 600 thread count sheets on brand new teak beds, Seaside Charter Club towels, private bath with hot water, new oscillating ceiling fans, and all-natural locally-made soaps.
     The weather here is wonderful year-round, with average daytime temperatures in the 80's. The afternoon prevailing breezes from the ocean keep the days warm but comfortable. Join us!
