The casita was built with comfort in mind. There is a large porch, a queen size bed with a pillow top mattress, and a kitchenette with utensils, dishes, and pots and pans, a large refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee pot and blender. Also included is a 32' flat screen TV with a video library and access to Netflix through the high speed DSL internet connection. Also included is on demand hot water. There is a small safe for valuables in teh wardrobe area. The ceiling is high and expansive and both the porch and the inside have large 52 inch fans that keep the air moving and the areas cool. Air conditioning is not needed! The casita is just a three minute walk from the beaches of Playa Negra and a beautiful 10 minute walk along the beach to the center of Puerto Viejo. Within 30 minute...The casita was built with comfort in mind.

Within 30 minutes of Casita Alegre, there are two rescue centers. The Sloth Sanctuary rescues the two types of sloths we find here in Costa Rica while the Jaguar Rescue Center rehabilitates animals of all kinds from snakes to monkeys to caiman as well as sloths. Both centers strive to return all of their rescued animals to the jungle. These are a must see if you love animals In addition, there are waterfall excursions, ocean and river kayaking, hiking, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, white water rafting, horseback riding, ziplining in the rainforest canopy or learning how chocolate is made during a tour of a local cacao plantation. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the country are right here in the Puerto Viejo area and are within 15 minutes by car and 30 minutes by bike. Punta Uva, Playa Cocles, Manzanilla, and Cahuita are often found on various top ten beaches in the country lists. More
