We accidentally came across the Tucan hotel when we had a stopover in Uvita, and came to understand that it is a place one of its kind. When being in Costa Rica you are constantly confronted with the motto “Pura Vida”, but it was not until here that my girlfriend and I really experienced it. This is due to the... More

It is a "hippie style" hotel. Ok for a quick stay, but don't expect much. Beds are old. Not that clean. We did like the place to cook, great idea. Very good location: near the Marino Ballena National Park, restaurant and grocery.

This place is really great! Family run hotel with really cosy hang out area, great vibe, excellent food and fantastic service as well. The Tucan Hotel is the overall best place I have stayed in years. Awesome value also as the prices are low.

Close to a very nice waterfall and with a free shuttle to the beach this is a great place to stay! Staff is very friendly, atmosphere is totally relaxed, internet is fast and free coffee all day. Nice hammocks! We slept in them for a night and had a great night of sleep :)

This is a fantastic hostel! Elizabeth the owner is so welcoming, lovely and helpful. She also serves tasty and affordable Italian food at the on site restaurant. The rooms are comfortable with AC and we had a private bathroom. (We were actually upgraded to a room with private bathroom for no extra charge). There are lots of different places to... More

Tray the owner is from Tennessee. He is a retired air traffic controller and decided to open a hotel/hostel in Costa Rica. This is it, the Hotel Tucan. The rooms were clean and the amenities offered a shared kitchen area with refrigerator, plenty of outdoor hammocks under a common covered courtyard, an eating area where you can order a good...

I speak for several of my fellow travelers when I say that the experience of staying at the Tucan far exceeded our expectations the first time we stayed. That's probably why we stayed several times after. This is the place to stay in Uvita! Live music, as the owners are themselves musicians, great food because one of the owners is... More

I spent two nights here and found the hostel to be very friendly from the owners down to the the housekeepers. I stayed in a mixed four bed dorm and it was very clean with comfortable beds and good sheets. The guests were mainly young backpackers, but all seemed friendly. I was a little disappointed in the restaurant, coming from... More

I stayed here for three nights while backpacking through Central America. While looking for a place to relax between Santa Catalina, Panama and San Jose, Costa Rica, a couple of friends recommended Uvita. Upon arriving at Tucan Hotel, I noticed that it had a very laid-back, communal vibe so I booked 3 nights. The dorm room was a little musty... More
