Welcome to the La Perla Negra Website!

We are a beach front micro-resort/tour and outfitting company servicing the gulf of Nicoya and beyond. Our unique hotel and personalized fantasy tours are designed to excite the senses and make the most of your precious time in Costa Rica. As we explore the sometimes remote areas of our area we will also take on environmental challenges as well. We are in the middle of nowhere, but on the way to everywhere, so give us a slice of your time and let us show you our little paradise. We are located next to the ferry to Puntarenas, so this is a great place to stop by when on your way to the Guanacaste province, with cool places to check out like Tamarindo, Samara and Montezuma, and don’t forget Nosara, Playa Hermosa and the volcano Rincon de la Vieja.

As you will soon find out we are always building, dreaming, creating and most importantly doing!


My name is Travis and I’m your host and creator of this fantasy resort. I first came to Costa Rica in 1994 from California looking for adventure. Although I took some years off I always wanted a project to convey art, education and the environment and to be able to share it with like minded people. I want to share my paradise with people who are looking for adventure just as I was when I first landed in this strange and wonderful country. Although beautiful, this enchanted country is not without it’s environmental issues just like everywhere else. That’s why we Have created OCEAN HEAL to educate and inspire to give back for generations to come.

So join me and let’s explore and heal this wonderful country.


So instead of going to the usual crowded tourist areas, come check out our slice of original, unspoiled, local and real Costa Rica! Pura Vida Costa Rica!



We are a family built, owned and operated. This means personal attention and an experience that can only come from family and friends. On top of that our fantasy style resort will ignite the senses and make your time with us in Costa Rica more than memorable. 



After building this resort, I realized quite quickly I didn’t build it to get people drunk! So all our Gulf of Nicoya tours are exploratory expeditions on how we can better protect our environment and our marine and animal life, that we are ever so encroaching on. So yeah, your tours could have slight detours to clean a particular secluded beach of plastic or to save a turtle from peril, so apologies in advance.



As you wander around the first thing you’ll notice is: this place is crazy! The details, the never ending art projects, the love & passion that we have put into this place is evident, the second you walk down the whale bone entrance all the way to our floating dock. From the gulf to our rustic beach bar and camping facilities down on our beach you won’t be dissappointed.
