My husband and I were there the end of June. He was in awe of the place. It was nice that the windows were screened so we could keep them open all the time for fresh air. We love the owners (especially me because I love the French and speak French and they are from France). The howler monkeys provided... More

Pachamama will be my go to for future stays on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. Estelle and Florian are the best! They were very accommodating; providing bikes for guests, offering valuable travel advice, having a gallon of drinkable water in each casita, and bringing a huge and delicious breakfast to my patio every morning. As a female solo traveler,... More

Estelle and Florian are amazing! They really make you feel welcome and go above and beyond to ensure your comfort. The ONLY thing that could make it better is an A/C, but I am almost glad at the end of it all that there wasn't! We were able to really experience Costa Rica because of it- not sitting inside the...

We just got back from CR and had a wonderful time at the Pachamama. We stayed in Casa Los Perezosas. It was a wonderful, laid back atmosphere in Puerto Viejo. The Casa slept 4 easily and was very comfortable. I do wish we had requested another standing fan since the ceiling fans cannot be felt with the mosquito nets over... More

Estelle and Florian are very sweet. The room was great! Don't let no A/C and mosquito nets scare you. We stayed cool with our fan (they actually even provided us a separate stand up fan on request) and we didn't have even one mosquito in our place. The morning breakfast was different both days and it was wonderful to go... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Casita Los Tucanes bungalow. The Bungalow/Pachamama: It was perfect. We had our own porch with 2 hammocks and a table and chairs set that we had breakfast at every morning. There is a small kitchenette that has everything you need to store and cook food. Even a toaster and a blender. Everything about... More

I booked this place based on the wonderful reviews and it was indeed wonderful! Estelle and Florian are incredibly friendly and welcoming. They gave us free beach towels, bikes and snorkel gear during our stay. This was much appreciated since you are about 5 miles away from Puerto Viejo where the shops, restaurants and rental places are. The free breakfast... More

Estelle and Florian were the perfect hosts to a perfect stay. We stayed in Los Monos with our 21 month old and Estelle emailed me in advance to ask what he would like for his breakfast. I was very impressed with her thoughtfulness. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and delivered to our terrace each morning. There is no air conditioning,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Pachamama Jungle River Lodge in the Los Perezosos bungalow. Pachamama is a well-located, beautifully natural, and very comfortable place to be. The jungle setting couldn't have been more intriguing. Most days we sat on our porch and watched families of howler monkeys play in the trees 40 to 60 feet away. The kids also... More

We stayed for four nights in the casita Los Colibries, and I have to say we had very high expectations for our stay based on the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor.
