Veronica's Place Cabinas
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I stayed at Veronica's Place, i had a private room inside the house which was simple but clean and they made me feel like a family member. I also stayed another week in a cabina with my boyfriend. The cabinas are really big and cute with a nice garden. They also have a kitchen and a privat bathroom. I had a good time, everyone was very nice. You can have breakfast with Veronica's Family which is AMAZING.

We stayed at Veronica's for the night in a private room with a private bathroom for $13 a night, so right there you have a great deal. It's still in town, just not in the center so it's not loud at night. There were nets above the beds (not sure if we actually needed them, but we felt better with them) and the fan worked so well we actually turned it off for a while because we were cold. We had breakfast with her family the next morning, we aren't vegetarian but the food was great and they are all such nice, friendly people.
We went to an $8 hostel the next night (now) and are currently hating our lives with the amount of bugs and stuffy room. Heading back to Veronica's in the morning and just going to cut the $8 loss.

We haven't eaten at the restaurant yet, but have only heard great things and the breakfast was delicious at her houses so I imagine it has to be in her restaurant too!

I had a really great week staying at Veronica's place! I rented a separate cabin that was really cosy and clean. Veronica and her family made fantastic vegetarian breakfast every morning! One of the absolute best things was the positive vibe of the family! They really shared their way of living and even took me along to some events in the community! A real gem in Puerto Viejo!

we travelled from cahuita on 2 occasions just to eat out at veronicas place. the ambiance and the food ist just amazing. the selection of foods is sensational, the options will leave even non vegan coming back for more. everything is super fresh and tasty. the juices are exceptional, loved the veggieburger. good value for your money, the service is more than friendly. everything at Veronicas place is made with a lot of love. if you're in Puerto Viejo, make sure you stop at Veronica's place...you won't regret it.

We didn't stay here, just ate at the restaurant.

We stayed in Cahuita and made the journey to Puerto Viejo just to have dinner here again.

They have fresh juices (veg &/or fruit), raw options (we had raw burritos), lots of vegan stuff and normal vegetarian.

The salad was really tasty and healthy, the burger was fantastic (the burger is a bit on the small side though so it would go well with some patacones or a salad). 2 people we went with are meat-eaters and they raved about the veggie burger.

Try a Black Mamba' drink it's delicious (cocao, banana, & homemade peanut butter) - like a blended snickers bar with banana.

The carrot tart/pattie is the best so go for that if you have a meal that asks what meat substitute you want.

Price is more expensive but you get fresh, healthy, homemade meals.

Didn't stay at the hostel downstairs, but we had a few meals upstairs and they were AMAZING! Regardless if you are vegan or not, this is a great place to eat and really not very expensive. The staff is wonderful. Should be you're first stop when you're hungry.
