About the Area
TANUSAS VILLAS is located a few minutes away from countless adventures, such as the best scuba diving and whale watching at the exotic Isla de la Plata, kayaking in the rough Boca de Cayo streams, hiking through the paradise of a humid forest in Canta Gallo, mountain biking through the hills of Chongon-Colonche, and much more which allows you to escape and free your spirit.
Another feature of our community is Tanusas Retreat & Spa. This hotel has gained a high level of prestige, providing a variety of luxury services perfectly in tune with nature. Tanusas began in 2012 promising an environment dedicated to quality services & amenities, environmental preservation, and extended sustainability as well as a unique community charm. Along with the hotel comes an on-site culinary experience offering the highest quality gastronomy through the restaurant BocaValdivia. Award winning Chef Rodrigo Pacheco was trained in France and has worked in restaurants that received three Michelin stars, which is a prestigious honor symbolizing culinary excellence. Chef Rodrigo Pacheco utilizes fruits in the tropical dry forest, growing his own cacao in the cloud forest, fishing and collecting shellfish in the mangroves, and working with indigenous communities to discover ingredients that have never been applied to fine dining. The gastronomic proposal in BocaValdivia is pure creativity. We serve delicacies with an ocean view. There are many privileges attached to living in a community with a hotel that has a passion for quality service, from room service at your door step, flight and transportation arrangements, concierge, property management, and much more.
✽ CULTURE & TRADITIONS
We take pride in our local community and the culture & traditions that make life so much more exciting. Long ago in these magical lands the Valdivia culture lived, one of the oldest settlements recorded in the history of the Americas. The Valdivia settlement emerged from the earlier Las Vegas culture and thrived on the peninsula between 3500 and 1800 BC, passing along through generations the great spirit of creativity to our people.
We embrace a rich culture full of traditions that are kept alive to this day through artistic expressions. We value the techniques passed down through generations for creating beautiful pottery and maintain our identity as some of the most spectacular straw hat weavers in the world. We treasure our land that offers the finest coffee and are thankful for the hard work of the farmer that brings this aroma to our doorstep.
The values and richness of our culture inspire us to continue the line of creativity through nature. We have inherited a true connection to nature to be shared and explored with others who share our philosophy of life.
