The hotel has nice chilling area, good wi-fi, very friendly staff, clean and tidy. Offer once per day free shuttle bus to beach. But is quite expensive, some nights quite noisy and it is far from beach, 3 and half km far.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tucan Hotel for 2 nights. On the property there are a bunch of trees, so we set up our tent under some of them and were nice and secluded. We had access to the communal bathrooms (surprisingly clean - and I'm super germaphobic!!), and the kitchen, all for $8 a night. One of... More

Uvita itself is an easygoing beach town with smooth waves and a breathtaking low-tide sunset. Toucan captured the spirit of the Uvita perfectly, it's a very tranquil lodge and well worth the visit. It is not as developed as Manuel Antonio, Dominical, etc., so if you're looking for some R&R, this is the spot. The staff is both friendly and... More

The tucan hotel is a really great place to stay as a backpacker. It has an open air vibe to it and its great to chill out in one of the hammocks. The staff was really friendly especially alex who offered to show us around in uvita and thanks to him we could discover places off the beaten tracks and... More

Tucan Hotel was so beautiful and fun! I loved the hammocks. The staff was very friendly and the owner is a wonderful cook. She helped us set up tours and gave us a group discount... $ 10 for dinner and then free breakfast! She also helped us schedule tours for group rates. The location isn't ideal, but I enjoyed walking... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private en suite, which was clean and basic. The social area was lovely, as was the breakfast. We had dinner here one night too which was lovely. The location isn't the best but they do run a free beach shuttle. The 'kitchen' lets this place down...if you plan on self-catering I would... More

Tucan Hotel is a very friendly, family run hostel with a lot of character. We stayed in a private room (we are a couple but it could have slept 5!) with AC and a private bathroom. It was comfortable and the fittings were fine with a hot(ish) shower. The rooms are organised around a nice central area with hammocks and... More
