Hotel Nirvana by the Sea
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Cahuita
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2012

My family and I stayed here for three nights. The owner was so friendly and helpful, and we saw quite a few animals including howler monkeys and toucans. We were really glad to stay in an air-conditioned cabin because of the high humidity along the coast. If you want a quite, relaxed atmosphere, this is a great option in Cahuita.

You are bound to see more animals here than inside the national park, just chill out in the pool and you will have toucans flying over your head, monkeys howling in the trees, iguanas climbing, colorful frogs jumping around, agoutis passing by and a whole family of sloths visiting... You get the idea, right? The cabinas are not luxurious but good value for the price. The pool is a blessing on those hot Cahuita days and Alex, the owner, is a really great guy: helpful, knowledgeable and always available, even when you are not expecting it. He came to the rescue on several occasions!
Highly recommended.

Great accomodation!!! Price and Quality is perfect. Alex is great and gives you every information you need. He shows you all the animals he can find and we saw a lot of them. It´s nice and quiet and green. The Cabinas are clean and lovely, there is anough room for the luggage. It´s possible to order breakfast for 5 dollars, it´s worth it, you get an enourmus breakfast. The beach is really close.

Hello my name is Yael and I'm from Israel. I, my boyfriend and his family visited the hotel last January. The owner Alex is a charming guy who advised us and helped us in everything we asked him. The cabins are beautiful, cute and cozy we enjoyed our stay in the place and the price is not expensive. We strongly recommend to anyone who comes Cahuita to get to Nirvana.

There are many reasons to stay at Cabinas Nirvana but the one that tops the list is the owner Alex and his family. Alex is as honest and genuine as a person as you'll ever meet, he insisted on driving us many times and we took him up on his offer when he drove us to the bus station at 6am.

The cabinas are nice and a delicious breakfast can be brought to your doorstep. The garden is beautiful and the pool is a nice addition. The location is perfect, a 2 minutes walk to Playa Negra and a 15 minutes walk to town. In terms of what you can pay in Cahuita, their prices are excellent, even for tours. Aex is also really good at giving insights into life in Cahuita. It really feels like you are getting a good deal when you stay there. Staying there made our vacation in Cahuita that much more enjoyable!

We recommend those cabinas to anyone!

We stayed with Alex and his family for nearly 2 weeks on and off during our 1 month vacation in Costa Rica. Alex was a magnificent host, took us into town many times, gave us a lot of tips and helped us with pretty much everything we needed. The cabinas are lovely and the garden just beautiful. Definitely the best price/value we had in our whole trip and one of the best places I ever stayed in my life.

Cabinas Nirvana is a beautiful, well-priced spot to stay in Cahuita, which we felt was otherwise overly expensive. Alex is a wonderful host - he picked us up and dropped us off at the bus station, gave us loads of good advice on budget things to do, and even brought us bowls of hot water for our Ramen noodles when we couldn't afford to buy dinner! The cabins have lovely wood floors and comfy beds, and there's even a little swimming pool in the garden. The one place in Cahuita where we didn't feel as though we were being ripped off.
