My husband and I chose La Costa de Papito as the site for our destination wedding. We had 24 family members and friends join us for the special occasion. Our decision to stay at La Costa de Papito was one of the BEST we made!
We LOVED the gorgeous, all natural bungalows, and the relaxed, jungle atmosphere. Eddie, his wife Aussi, and their staff were wonderful hosts and helped us with so many aspects of the wedding, reception, restaurant recommendations, making local calls, etc, etc, etc. I really can't say enough about their hospitality.
Here are some things to keep in mind about the Caribbean Coast and staying at La Costa de Papito:
Pros: Authentic Costa Rican experience, Caribbean/Rasta vibe, amazing food, lush jungle, less tourism, GREAT value, beautiful wood work and tile work in the bungalows, a little cooler than the Pacific coast
Cons: Bugs (yes there are bugs, they can get through the mosquito nets and bite you at night), rain...it rains more and unpredictably, cold showers (depending on your bungalow), variable water pressure in showers, more humid weather than the Pacific coast (your sheets/clothes/etc will always feel damp)
On our honeymoon, we went to two other places: Tabacon Grand Spa (~$330/night in Arenal) and Hotel Tropico Latino (~$160/night in Malpais.) Tabacon was fun and we enjoyed the 5 star experience; however...La Costa de Papito was my favorite. It was my little slice of heaven and I can't wait to go back. This was my 3rd visit to Costa Rica, and I also spent four months living in the country. If you want an authentic experience on the Caribbean Coast, La Costa de Papito is the place to stay.
