Mark and Jessica made our stay so enjoyable. Jessica helped us set up several excursions (one from San Jose after we arrived - on the Pacuare River - wonderful)! We went on a tour with the "Shermonator", looking for dolphins, visiting an organic village, and snorkeling. Marc is talented, keeping the property up to date. He also taught us about... More

We stay there for two nights, on a lodge for three people (we were 3), it had a fan and two beds (one queen and one single, super comfortable), no TV (we didn't need it), two hammocks, and our private restroom; it had a great and homing feeling, even the towels were soft enough, not like some other places, our...

Caribe Town is a special place to stay. We spent 10 days here (staying in Casa Pipa), enjoying the beautiful beaches and relaxed ambience of the caribbean coast, taking bikes out and meeting some of the amazing people and wildlife, including a sloth on our doorstep! Our hosts, Jessica and Marc, were wonderful. As a family of five with three... More

We stayed at Caribe Town for 3 nights in August. The accommodations were wonderful as were Jessica and the rest of the hosts. They had great recommendations for activities and made it so easy to get them scheduled. Also the breakfasts they made every morning were probably our favorite meals of our stay in Puerto Viejo! We split our trip... More

My husband and I could not have asked for better hosts during our 7 night honeymoon trip to beautiful Cocles! Jessica and Marc made us feel welcome and relaxed from the moment we arrived, until our sad departure. Every morning we were treated to Jess' (and sometimes Marc's!) outstanding home made delights, and every evening we enjoyed a drink and... More

Puerto Viejo is definitely my favorite place in Costa Rica, I really enjoy trying new places to stay and comparing each of them. Caribe town is a very nice and quiet little place, if you're looking for a nice and calm weekend this is definitely a nice place for that. The little bungalows are very pretty and clean, the surroundings... More

Spent a full week with my buddies at Caribe Town, and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for our amazing week in Puerto Viejo. We rented Casa Pipa, a full house for the 4 of us, and the accomodation was amazing. Jessica and Mark, the hosts are very friendly, there to make you feel comfortable, making sure your... More

Spent 2 nights here. Jessica makes you feel at home right away. I know just the basic words/sentences in Spanish and had a hard time communicating with the rental car company. Both Jessica and Marc helped big time by calling the rental company numerous times and speaking to different guys to explain my situation. I'm sure they would have spent... More

After backpacking round Costa Rica for 3 weeks, we decided to end with a relaxing stay on the Caribbean and Caribe town was the perfect choice of hotel. For us the location was perfect. Town was a $4 taxi ride away but easily reachable by bike. The advantage of this was that you could enjoy Puerto Viejo when you wanted... More
