Carolinas was a convenient stopping point the night before and the night after our Corcovado Trek with Osa Corocvado Trekking ( office is next door to Carolinas). The airconditioning was most welcome. The curtains on the window are quite see thru and allow a lot of light into the room. The shower looked like it could do with a good... More

The small tranquil town of Puerto Jimenez is one of those places that I don't get tired of visiting. I love it! I've stayed at La Carolina almost every time. The rooms are clean, comfortable, with free WiFi and the A/C works well. Plus its smack dab in the middle of the town providing easy access to finding tours/activities in... More

I went to Puerto Jimenez from 10/2/2014 - 10/6/2014, and I gotta say it has been one of the best times I've had so far this year. Puerto Jimenez by itself it's a charming town, and Hotel La Carolina is the perfect place to spend the nights after some rough days of adventure. It's a really chill and couzy place,... More

The room we had was big and clean. For under 20 $ it was a good deal. The bars outside were not to loud although we had the room towards the street. We think the owner might have changed seeing all the very bad comments below. It is a normal budget place and the staff was friendly. Still, there are... More

We returned from Corcovado in the late afternoon and needed a place to stay for the night. The hotel is a basic, functional, main street establishment. We found the rooms large, clean and the AC was fine. There is an inner courtyard for parking your rental car off the street. Price was very reasonable.

If you are traveling on a budget and just need somewhere to sleep in the evenings then I would recommend this place. The newer rooms upstairs are nicer but slightly more noisy. My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights as we did a day trip to the Cocorvada National Park and there seemed little point in spending more... More

We used Carolina's as our back up plan and were not disappointed. They are friendly and for $24 what more can you want? It's in the middle of town and if you stay away from the rooms facing the street it's fairly quiet.

lived around here for nearly 20 years. sometimes need to stay in town for business the next day, or when the rivers are up and we can't get home. It's on the main street, and so is very noisy and almost impossible to sleep at night, even in an 'air conditioned' room (with a 15 year old window-shaker unit). Bathrooms... More

Puerto Jimenez really was my least favorite town in Costa Rica... It's kind of an odd, boring little place. If you're heading off to Corcovado, you just might have to stay the night. If so, this place is all right. Nothing to write home about, but at least you won't be eaten by bed bugs... and its fairly clean. The... More
