“The Best Vacation Ever.”
Reviewed September 2, 2010

My girlfriend and I spent, seven days at La Selvatica in May of 2010, and it was a magical experience. Very relaxing location, everything that you need is either a short walk or bike ride away. The people are friendly and laid back. The food is excellent, and the accommodations are more than sufficient. La Selvatica is a destination, but it also makes a great base from which to explore.

Everything about La Selvatica had a tone of excellence. The location in Playa Chiquita is quieter than Puerto Viejo (save for the abundance of howler monkeys and birds!), with the beach, a few good restaurants and two grocery stores in short walking distance. The local bar with pool tables was under renovation when we were there. The house itself was elegant, comfortable, and easy to get to. The gal running the place was attentive and friendly. The bikes that were included were in good shape - we rode them every day to a new beach (there are so many, and they're all breathtaking!). Some day trips we took were kayaking (ocean & river), chocolate making tour (and eating!), ziplining, Manzanillo, Puerto Viejo, Playa Cocles....so much to do and see here. What a great place and a perfect stay.

We loved our stay in the main house. The house is comfortable and surrounded by nature. Area felt safe, close enough to Puerto Viejo for convenience, but still quiet and serene. The beach is a short stroll away, so are restaurants and grocery stores. Property is very close to the bus stop, so a rental car was not necessary. We also used the bikes provided free of charge for day trips. The caretaker lady on site was very nice and helpful, she even had a nice fruit basket waiting for us on arrival. The kitchen was great - we cooked most dinners here and enjoyed them on the huge porch. House and grounds were kept very clean. We took a couple of tours arranged by the owners before we arrived and everything went so smooth! We had a great stay and would definitely return at Casas La Selvatica. Kristine P., Toronto

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Selvatica is your home on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. Our two vacation homes, Casa Grande and Casa Mango, are located in the quaint beach settlement of Playa Chiquita, just outside of Puerto Viejo, the happening epicentre of the southern area of the Coast. We are located in the centre of the "tourist" area of the Coast, with easy access to the town of Puerto Viejo, the surfing community of Cocles, quaint Punta Uva (rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica) and the fishing village of Manzanillo, entry point for the Gandoca-Manzanillo Reserve. Our homes provide comfortable accommodation immersed in the rain forest and surrounded by wildlife, yet only a few minutes walk away from a picturesque palm fringed beach, grocery store and restaurants. The setting will appeal to the more adventurous travellers who enjoy being surrounded by jungle sounds, and having the opportunity to observe amazing wildlife in its natural habitat. You will most likely watch howler monkeys in their search for food, toucans or sloths right from the comfort of your patio. Our commitment to outstanding customer service is what differentiates La Selvatica from other vacation homes in the area. We commit to provide fast, effective and honest assistance from the moment you first contact us. Our homes are self-catering, but your bilingual host (who lives two doors down) will be present at check-in, and be available daily to assist with information and recommendations about the area, bookings for activities/tours and offer detailed attention to your comfort throughout your vacation. You will have the privacy that you desire, but have the comfort of being able to speak to a dedicated host whenever needed. ... more   less
