Casa Talamanca Ham Rental, Coast Rica

ti7wgiSituated in one of the oldest beach communities in Guanacaste Province, Playas del Coco, Casa Talamanca is recommended by DA-RC members as the perfect ham holiday shack for serious DX Hunters, Contest Teams and DXpeditioners.

A 3 element multiband yagi antenna (See above and below), towering above nearby Pacific Coast beaches on a huge lattice tower, is the ultimate weapon for DX.

Coupled with an amazing yagi take off to the Americas and Europe and you’ve got everything you need for a successful radio weekend.

guenter_mariaA traditional Bed & Breakfast, Casa Talamanca is located approximately 20 miles from the city of Liberia, in north-west Costa Rica.

Away from the shack, team members can relax on white sand beaches or stroll the palm-lined black sand beach beneath the cliffs at Playa Ocotal which are only a few minutes bike ride.

To freshen up after the pile-ups, they can also dive, snorkel, swim, surf, fish, bird-watch, kayak, sail, jet-ski, hike, bike, golf, and horseback ride.
