Home is brand new, clean and has everything you need to relax for the week. Pool was excellent and refreshing after a day at the beach. It is very private, we couldn't hear or see anyone else all week. It cooled down at night so when sitting outside with a drink, it was comfortable with pants and t-shirt. There were no issues with bugs at all, not one mosquito or "no see ums" all week. It was located a short 5-10 min drive from a very good grocery store and the restaurants in Puerto Viejo were only about 15 mins away.
This is our 7th time to Costa Rica and the wildlife that visited us while we sat on the patio was better than any other area we have visited. Birds were everywhere. Went to sleep listening to the Spectacled Owl hooting and was woken by the crazy Howler Monkeys. The drive down the hill was easy and we always passed by the sloth that seems to live in the trees at the La Ceiba Wildlife Park and the Capuchin Monkeys that are in the lower areas not too far away from him
We will return to this rental and will recommend it to friends and family who want to visit the Puerto Viejo area.
