Nice houses for a good price. Very kind people and a relaxed atmosphere. The houses are just outside the city centre. This means that you are in the forest and the animals are close! Don't think you can get closer to nature...

I had a fantastic stay at Cabinas Yemanya. The cabins are surrounded by jungle, allowing wildlife such as capiabaras, sloths and toucans to visit very close to the cabins. The fact that the cabins are made of wood really gives the place a natural feel as well. It's a very short walk to the quiet, gorgeous beach with cristal clear... More

This is by far the best option for families traveling on a budget. The cabinas are simple but well equipped with a kitchen, warm showers and a private bathroom. The hosts are a very friendly and very helpful couple who genuinely want you to have a relaxing, great experience. But even better, the nicest beach you will find near Puerto... More

It's definately my favourite place to stay whenever I'm in Puerto Viejo. The best thing is that it's just right next to the beach: crossing the jungle and you can have a nice swim every morning! The beach is the nicest one that you can find near to Puerto Viejo and in the morning you have it for yourself. The... More

I really like this place, this place is for people who likes to relax and enjoy the music of nature. Bungalows have everything you need to stay a few days or a while. Also the beach is just 50 mts from cabins. Highly recommend. We saw a baby sloth in front of our cabin here in Cabinas Yemanya, check it... More

Ive been going to these cabins for quite a few years and in my experience it has been perfect. Its not expensive and you have a lot of privacy. Plus the beach in front is beautiful... Also the location is perfect if u wanna explore other places on bike.

We were there for a couple of days and the place is really beautiful! But ... no service at all! No towels, no good information! They also don't care of the nature, the water from dishes and (cold) showers are going to the forest. They ask too much money for what they offer and everything needs some cleaning, it could...
