I absolutely fell in love with Chimuri Retreat and Kiana! Kiana helped me feel right at home, and guided me based on my interests during my stay. And she has friendly protective dogs there, that I also fell in love with. The cottage is beautiful, newly remodeled, and perfect for my needs. I was there for only a week, which next time (which there will be, because this place felt like my second home), I will definitely stay longer. There is so much to do in the area, biking into town, many restaurants (incl vegetarian, vegan, and raw), many other beaches in biking distance to snorkel, surf, etc., and there are many adventure tours in the areas in and around Puerto Viejo, including national parks to take a peek at the local wildlife, also yoga classes right next door, and massages and other healing modalities available. The beach out in front of the cottages is amazingly peaceful and quiet, sometimes being the only one on the beach in the area. As I was a woman traveling alone, I was glad to feel very safe at Chimuri and in the towns. I really had a hard time leaving because it truly felt like home, but I am so grateful to have found this wonderful place to quietly retreat to and to return to again someday.
