Staying in Tucan is really nice. The owners are a couple from states and Italy. Both of them are very nice people. They helped us to contact with the agencies in Uvita to book the activities or tours. All the employees in the hotel are very welcome. People live there are also very nice. Don's miss such a nice place... More

I arrived at the Tucan Hotel very early in the morning and was traveling by myself, so I was a little nervous. I arrived before check in, but the staff was friendly enough to let me go ahead and get into my room. One of their workers in particular, Alex, was excellent. He answered any questions that I asked and... More

Excellent hostel with lots of hammocks and places to relax and provides a very chilled out, friendly atmosphere. There is both a restaurant and separate kitchen for when you want to cook yourself. The staff are very helpful and welcoming and they provide a free shuttle to the national park (only one way, but you can either get a taxi... More

They do so much to make every guest feel welcome, from organizing numerous amazing tours for guests to providing vital... More

The two owners were very pleasant and a real help. They arranged a horseback ride and even took us to a restaurant outside of the hotel. We liked it so much that we are going to go back in about 5-6 weeks. A really good trip.

40$ for a bedroom with air conditioning as noisy as the trucks passing by or the dogs screaming at anytime of the night. Don't try to sleep! The beds are not comfortable either... Otherwise the concept is nice, good people, hammock, piano, a kitchen you can use (the super market is really close). But when foreigners come in a cheap... More

The location is great for bus riders and anyone who wants to be close proximity to groceries, banks, restaurants, etc. Don't let that deter you if that's not what you want though, there's not much to Uvita (and I like it that way). Owners and staff are welcoming and helpful, the overall vibe of the place is open. We stayed... More

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.
