...besides going to the beaches :) Me (22 USA traveler) and my friend (22 Tico from monteverde) spent a horrible first night at a different hotel in Puerto Viejo, where the first thing I did was get online to find somewhere else.
I called La Ruka and didn't regret it! So close to everything, yet far enough from the central downtown to actually get a night's sleep. Chill people, hot water, nice vibes, great property... also safe, clean, inexpensive... What else could you ask for?
I loved the white board that they had up in the main room to show all the fun events going on during our stay. Made me feel so much less alone in traveleing. The staff was super friendly, too and had recommendations for food and beaches and bus schedules.
If you're down for hippie-surfer-young-chill vibes, definitely go to La Ruka! I would go back just to go there!More
