Stayed in the Blue Cottage and it was so wonderfully private and relaxing! Great to have a fully equipped kitchen and drinking water right from the tap! Cahuita was lovely and enjoyed how quiet and laid back it was as well as the the beautiful beaches both across the street and at the National Park.
We did have an issue with the youngest of the 3 German Shepard dogs on the property that was not very well trained and was nipping at our daughter's bathing suit bows. When she started to run it kept chasing and biting at her. If she had of been toddler age she could have been hurt.....I think part of the issue could have been that the owners were not there - it was being managed by someone else in their absence and they didn't seem to have a lot of control over the dog. The only other drawback on a couple of nights was the neighbouring property has dogs that barked all night long! Howler monkeys are part of the sounds of Costa Rica but someone's bored, lonely dog is just a nuisance! Not the fault of this owner but definitely a let down when you are looking for a peaceful night's sleep. Pura Vida! We would definitely go back as it was an overall great spot. BTW we are dog lovers and have several at home:-)
