...because we enjoyed it so much I'm not quite sure how to put it into words. Jessica and Marcos were amazing hosts, such a pleasure to be a guest in their establishment. I enjoyed chatting with them here and there (they're always on the run making sure everything is perfect), they are genuinely interesting and wonderful people to be around.
My husband and I booked the bungalow with the a.c unit and on a couple of humid nights we were very thankful for it! The bungalows are located in the back of the resort nestled into the beautiful jungle greenery (kept lovely by Marcos), they come with a cute little porch area with outdoor seating and a hammock. Inside the room are two beds, a tv, and in ours an a.c unit. The room was always clean and felt very private. We spent most of our time outside of the room but it was very comfortable.
The main area is really lovely with plenty of seating for all of the guests, hammock chairs (those were my favorite to relax in), a bar where they'll make drinks on request, a shared kitchen where you can cook dinner if you'd like, a pretty little pool that backs the bar, and a pool area to bask in the sun. Also an outdoor shower, two very clean bathrooms, and a hidden little "spa" area where you can get a massage. My only regret is that I didn't book one!
Jessica will help you book anything and everything from shuttles to excursions to spa days. Everything was extremely simple with her help, and that is really important especially if you don't know the area or the language! They're always available to call you a taxi or get you a beer. Breakfast is included and comes with homemade jelly, which is so good! They'll even do your laundry for a small price.
They also provide bikes to rent daily or weekly. We rented two bikes for the week and it was such a fun way of getting around. The beach is just across the street and through some jungle (accessible via gravel or dirt roads). Puerto Viejo is about a 5 min cab ride away, where you have a strip of shops, restaurants, bars and beautiful beach area. The Jaguar Rescue is a 5 min bike ride, literally just down the street and a must go to! Manzanillo is less then a 15 min cab ride away and in between is Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, and Playa Grande...all surrounded by beautiful jungle, wildlife, beaches, and with some restaurants and shops nestled here and there.
Jessica and Marcos can be as involved as you want/need them to be. They cater very well to each guest. We never felt pressured nor did we ever feel ignored, we honestly felt right at home the entire time.
I would highly highly recommend Caribe Town, it is a gem!
