Very relaxing place to be on the edge of Cahuita. Fully equipped cabins with outdoor cooking facilities and fridge and hammock on your deck; comfortable rooms with mosquito netting over the bed; extremely friendly and welcoming owners; howler monkeys in the trees .... I could go on but think you get the picture. It's very relaxing, very well kept and... More

Lovely place and the owners are a great couple who really make you feel welcome and they gave a good introduction of the town. I rented a bicycle from the owner and discovered the town and national park. Would stay longer if I could. Greetings from Sweden Frans

We went to Cahuita in November 2014 and we stayed at the Cabinas for 2 nights. They picked us up at the bus station and we had a lovely room with a nice bathroom. Both very clean and very nice. The room also had an outside kitchen including fridge, a table and a hammock. In the morning it is very... More

and then extended our stay because we enjoyed the hotel and the Cahuita area so much. The cabins are very nice and clean and the garden of the hotel is beautiful designed.

We were very happy staying here! The owners (and pets) made fantastic hosts, with great tips and information about the area. The service felt very personalized. The rooms were clean and there was a hammock on every porch which was so relaxing. Only negative thing was that it's quite a long way from the center and there is no breakfast.... More

We loved our stay at Cabinas Nirvana. Stayed for a week (August 1st-7th 2014) and everything was perfect. My friend and I were concerned about safety being girls in our 20's travelling alone, but we both felt safe and comfortable in Cahuita and especially at Cabinas Nirvana. The rooms were cleaned daily. No bells and whistles like toiletries, but we... More

We were looking for some place in Cahuita to stay the weekend and found this. We stayed in the small cabins they have and was really cute, had all we need and even more. With a small terrace to stay at night. The owners Sepp and Yolanda were very nice and helped us in all we needed, since details of... More

My family and I went to Costa Rica on a border run to renew our tourist visa's from Nicaragua. We wanted to go someplace different this time, so we decided to check out Cahuita. Having never been to this little village, I went solely on the reviews on TripAdvisor, and they had the best reviews for my budget. We were... More

If going on vacations to Costa Rica is paradise, the people of Cabinas Nirvanas made it haven. Some of the difficulties that you may have in the country are easily overstepped, thanks to the owners that try everything to help you. They made me fill as family.
