I have stayed in these cabins for many years and have seen them improve every time. I love staying in them and recommend them to everyone who can climb stairs and wants to be super close to a beautiful beach. When I stayed in them this past January I was treated to a turtle laying eggs on the beach and...

This place is directly across the road (dirt road, zero traffic) from the most beautiful beach in the area. It's like your own little paradise. The cabins have everything you need and the manager is very attentive to your needs. The quality is much higher and the price is much lower than other accommodations in Puerto Viejo - Punta Uva.

My husband and I are from the United States and have always dreamed of a trip to the Caribbean and we stumbled across Caracol Azul cottages on here. We decided to plan our trip for the beginning of April. We stayed in one of the cottages, and it was a very peaceful and serene experience. The cottage was equipped with...

An outstanding memory from my wonderful adventure in Costa Rica is my 5 day stay at El Caracol Azul. This quaint, private site with twin cottages is a perfect location for an extended stay. Just a stone throw from a private strip of pristine beach on the Caribbean Sea, you can sway in a hammock on the second floor balcony...

Who needs a swimming pool when you can go out the front gate and jump into the wonderful waters of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica? It is like having a private beach at your fingertips. The 2-story construction, with the screened in sleeping quarters upstairs allows you to enjoy the cool Atlantic breezes throughout the day. I have been...

We had a great time at the "El Caracol Azul" cabins. The two cabins are Caribbean style and rustic but very clean and comfortable. The beach is just through the garden gate and is absolutely beautiful - perfect for kids and adults alike - with gentle sloping sand into the water and lots of shade to sit under and enjoy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come join us on the white, sandy beaches of Punta Uva. The ocean is just steps away from the cabins, making it feel like a true beach-front experience. The cabins are Caribbean style: rustic, yet clean, airy and comfortable. They are two stories, with a large bedroom upstairs with a queen sized and a single bed. There is also a fantastic porch where you'll be able to watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail. Downstairs is fully equipped with a kitchen, a bathroom with hot water and another porch that opens into the beautiful, tropical garden outside. Monkeys and sloths can often be heard and spotted in the trees nearby, but other than that, our cabins offer a tranquil, quiet atmosphere. On-site manager will make sure you are well taken care of and we do offer laundry service for folks who are staying longer. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have! Pura Vida and we hope to meet you soon! ... more   less
