Wonderful experience! Fresh and tasty food, beautiful nature, and friendly staff. One of the most unique stays anywhere! Highly recommended! Puerto Viejo is also my favorite beach in Costa Rica. I do however advise that you take caution at night in terms of safety, and travel in groups or via taxi. That said, you will love the charm and vibes... More

Stayed at Papito on the second leg of a three leg Groupon around Costa Rica. We were scared based on some of the negative reviews. Let me give the bottom line before going into details: this is a great little place and yes, it is VERY hot here in the rainy season. The place is located about a kilometer outside... More

We stayed here for three nights and three days and everything about this hotel was just SAD. As soon as we came in we felt disappointed at the lack of amenities and basic comforts that one expects from any hotel. We got through the check-in process easily enough but from there on everything was downhill. The constant and intrusive bird... More

"Saddest Man in the World. Stay Away From Costa Rica's South Caribbean Coast" If the song of the birds, the roar of the Howler monkeys or the sound of the waves crashing on the beach annoy you, then stay away from where the jungle meets the sea. If the humidity is a problem then stay away from the coast and... More

We just got back from CR and Puerto Viejo de Limon. HLCdeP is a very beautiful property, not far from town. The bungalows are comfortable. No A/C, no TV. It offers and excellent breakfast with the package, and the front desk ladies are wonderful, they were so helpful!

Nice place, with good location near Cocles, for sure I´ll be back. Beautiful bungalows in the middle of the nature spot, staff is friendly and they offer you a variety of options when you arrive, You can rent a bike and the breakfast good enough.

If you're looking to experience the some of the natural beauty of Costa Rica, this is the place. Staff was friendly and accommodating, and the hotel is located just a short distance from the hub of Puerto Viejo. The bungalow we stayed in was clean and spacious, however it did not have A/C nor a tv. Overall we had a... More
