    Both areas are at the extremes of Playa Blanca so you will be relying on the taxi (5 euros) or bus (1 euro each) to get into town if you have no transport
    Faro Park is known locally as ‘windy corner’ as it is exposed to Atlantic winds, so make sure the Villa has a sheltered area.
    I prefer Las Coloradas which is closer to the excellent beaches at Papagayo (25 minute walk) and has a better shopping area (although not full). It is also near enough to walk to the Marina Rubicon which is delightful in the evenings
    Your two young girls will love the swings in the park, which is conveniently located so you can watch them play from the bar or coffee shop at Las Coloradas

    Las Coloradas would be better, Faro park has nothing for your girls its very Quiet there.
