I almost feel like I should keep this place a secret but it deserves a review. My boyfriend and I visited Kelly Creek it mid July 2013 during our trip around Costa Rica and liked it so much we later return for another night. It’s got so much charm and character! It’s located among lush greenery, literally on the doorstep of the beautiful Cahuita National Park. It’s wooden, simple, beautiful, and romantic. It’s spotlessly clean and comes with free WiFi. You will fall asleep to the sound of waves crushing in the distance and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys. You will also get to meet Roberto and/or Roberta (befriended wild alligators who visit daily), Verdi – a talking parrot, and 3 adorable dogs (I especially loved Gypsy who would do anything to get petted). The owners are a wonderful and hospitable couple – she is French and he is Spanish. They both are fun to talk to and obviously love animals. During your stay you should make sure to order paella for dinner (you have to mention it in the morning!), which is made in a traditional fashion and tastes divine (better than the ones we actually ate in Spain!). There is nothing I would change about this place. The ambiance and location are perfect. Cahuita itself is a very interesting little town with a laid-back Afro-Caribbean vibe and there are several good restaurants nearby with great traditional Caribbean food.
