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.

The room was very basic, but okay. I could see daylight through a few small holes in the walls, but there was no bug problem and the room was reasonably clean. My main complaint is the shower. This place says that it has hot water, but the water in the shower was warm for maybe 5 seconds, then cool. Then,... More

Travelled around all Costa Rica and this must be the best place value for money I came across ! We even had a sloth coming to eat on the tree right in front of our bungalow . The place is run by a lovely Austrian couple which is always helpful and available for anything you need. Breakfast is also amazing.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in this comfortable Cabinas. What made our stay of 6 nights even more enjoyable was the excellent hospitality we both received from Yolanda and Sepp. Nothing was too much trouble for any of our requests and any question was met with practical answers showing a good knowledge of the immediate surrounding areas....

My wife and I stayed 5 nights in December at Cabinas Nirvana. Yolanda and Sepp are amazing hostes, polite and welcoming. They advised us about all the tours and how we could go to Punta Uva, Cahuita National Park and other highlights in the region. We booked a bungalow with Kitchen and it was worthy. We had a great time... More
