I have been coming to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica for over 10 years, and Chimuri has been by far the quietest and most beautiful place I have stayed. Kiana and Mauricio were perfect hosts: attentive, friendly and helpful. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. I was traveling alone, and felt perfectly safe. It was the ultimate retreat experience!

Had a wonderful stay at Chimuri Beach Retreat. Kiana and Mauricio were wonderful and warm hosts who were also available to assist with questions about the area. I stayed in the Sea Heart Cottage which was perfect for a solo traveler (would easily accommodate two). It provided a great home base for relaxation and reflection. The cottages are located across...

When I first saw “Sea Heart” I fell in love with my new home. The gardens on the property provided an atmosphere to attract birds...

My husband and I spent six weeks at Chimuri and found it to be lovely for maybe a short retreat. The yoga was absolutely wonderful and we both practiced three times a week. The beach was beautiful and the water spectacular. We enjoyed walks many times a day, especially mornings and late afternoon. However, we found the location of the...

I stayed in a smallest unit (1/19-1/25/14) and it was cozy and quite comfortable. Loved the hammock in the front porch,tree, birds, flowers, and peaceful ocean breeze.

I have been coming back to Chimuri again and again because I have not found another place yet where I can relax, get away from my work and have time just for myself (even without my lovely wife!) like here for an astounding price, unbeatable for all the simple comfort it offers.
