Lisa's place indeed is a little hideaway in Puerto Viejo. Being at the edge of the jungle, you can spot many different animals (there were two sloths close by which you could observe from the living room window). At nighttime, you will fall asleep with jungle sounds and waves crashing at the beach nearby. This however doesn't mean you're out... More

Just steps away from the beach and a short walk away from the bustling village of Puerto Viejo, this beautiful, rustic beach house is ideally located. Both Lisa and Christian were friendly, helpful and always available to help with suggestions of the many restaurants, shops and attractions in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
      Hidden Jungle Beach House is a sweet little guest house, close to the beach but hidden away in the jungle. Its for people who love nature and its tranquility. There are only four bedrooms, so we are never crowded, with two shared bathrooms and a spacious shared kitchen. Everything is bright, fresh and clean.      We are located in the jungle and right near the beach and town, too. We are close enough to all the activities and action of Puerto Viejo, yet we enjoy the jungle's tranquility and peace.             Hidden Jungle Beach House attracts the most interesting of people from all over the world. We have hosted guests from the US and Canada, England, France, Holland, Argentina, Venezuela, Iran, India and of course Costa Rica. And as I also offer a guide service and have lived in the area for over four years, I can advise you on activities, to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica's Caribbean. Our quiet little hide-away is full of pleasant surprises. Come join us and see! ... more   less
