We were there with some friends for the weekend. The way to the center is quiet far but a taxi isnt too expensive. Everything was clean and nice. You can hire a bike and go to different places around puerto viejo. The personal was very friendly and serve very nice coffee. I would highly recommend it.

This was a really relaxing and quiet place to stay, outside the main hub of Puerto Viejo. Playa Chiquita is only a few minutes walk away and the French owners are helpful and approachable. The cabins themselves are clean and well-equipped with a small kitchenette, bathroom and mosquito nets for the beds. Puerto Viejo is about a 10 minute car... More

A few cabinas in nature. The french owners were very nice and gave recommendations. The rooms were clean and well equipped and we just love to hear howler monkeys, birds and what not during the night. From our front porch we saw Tucans, parrots, monkeys, etc. Free wifi, coffee and tea were available. Some bad things: - during the first... More

Henri is an amazing host, he is so kind and helps you with anything that you need. The rooms are close together so you can hear your neighbors, but it is in a quiet location where you can here a lot of the jungle creatures. The place is a car ride to Puerto Viejo Center about 8 minutes, but you... More

Together with our two children (10 and 12) we are travelling trough Panama and Costa Rica. Yesterday we arrived at Mar y Luz, offering a pleasant home for us. Since we like cooking instead of eating out every day, we selected this cabina. The location is very nice: near the beaches of Chiquita and Punta Uva, just off the main... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the 3 bedroom 3 bath Casa Azul with a total of 3 couples plus one other adult, after driving many kilometers from Atenas. Bedrooms were comfortable and airy. Kitchen was more than adequate. The veranda was just what we needed for morning and nightime conversations with the group. Fulfilled my bucket list item of... More

We stayed at this place when we went to Limon, Puerto viejo. The service and place was great and the owners were very friendly and helpful with us. We saw toucans every morning, green mini frogs and a lot of sloths near by. Fully recommended.

I visited the Puerto Viejo area a few years ago and I must say it has grown up and there is a quite bigger hotel's offer. Yet it is still a nice and peculiar destination. I chosed Casitas Mar y Luz because a firend of mine recommended the place. The hotel is located next to the main road, in Playa... More

Stéphanie was a GREAT hostess with incredible knowledge of Costa Rica. She was willing to help us with all our needs at ease and give us recommendations for places in the area. The grounds of Mar y Luz were absolutely stunning and we immediately felt at home and safe. The casitas are centrally located to everything you could need. We... More
