We stayed at this cost efficient garden accommodation just minutes walking from the national park beach which allows small donations for entrance. The owner is Dutch and easygoing and has friendly housecats and a dog. The rooms are large with sliding patio doors, but the double room we stayed in did not have a separate door to the bathroom (open on the side and top) and we had daily trouble with the toilet which the owner tried to fix. Clean towels were replenished daily which was absolutely crucial in this small, quiet beach town. The accommodation is directly next to a national park, whitesand beach, hiking and you wake up to the howler monkeys nearby in the morning. The garden area is beautiful and while there is no breakfast provided, there is an open-air kitchen for self catering including small fridge. Very friendly environment and minutes from a small grocery store. About a 20 minute walk to the black sand beach and easy cheap local bus options further south to Puerto Viejo. Overall a great location for a cost effective price for enjoying the beach and nearby park.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are located 1 minute from the National Park of Cahuita, also the centre. This is a peaceful place to relax, watching the humming and other birds and butterflies in our garden. We have a terrace with roof, so when it rains you still can sit outside. The howler monkeys come very close in the backyard. ... more less
