I have stayed in these cabins for many years and have seen them improve every time. I love staying in them and recommend them to everyone who can climb stairs and wants to be super close to a beautiful beach. When I stayed in them this past January I was treated to a turtle laying eggs on the beach and... More

This place is directly across the road (dirt road, zero traffic) from the most beautiful beach in the area. It's like your own little paradise. The cabins have everything you need and the manager is very attentive to your needs. The quality is much higher and the price is much lower than other accommodations in Puerto Viejo - Punta Uva.

We decided to plan our trip for the beginning of April. We stayed in one of the cottages, and it was a very peaceful and serene experience. The cottage was equipped with... More

Just a stone throw from a private strip of pristine beach on the Caribbean Sea, you can sway in a hammock on the second floor balcony... More

Who needs a swimming pool when you can go out the front gate and jump into the wonderful waters of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica? It is like having a private beach at your fingertips. The 2-story construction, with the screened in sleeping quarters upstairs allows you to enjoy the cool Atlantic breezes throughout the day. I have been... More

We had a great time at the "El Caracol Azul" cabins. The two cabins are Caribbean style and rustic but very clean and comfortable. The beach is just through the garden gate and is absolutely beautiful - perfect for kids and adults alike - with gentle sloping sand into the water and lots of shade to sit under and enjoy... More
