“Our stay in Karen,s lovely home was just wonderful! The "open-air" house was comfortable and welcoming, even when the rains came. The sound of the sea at night and the birds in the morning helped our feelings of complete relaxation. When we stirred ourselves, the beach was waiting at the bottom of the tropical garden and usually we had it to ourselves. Although the general feeling was of seclusion, it was just a short walk into the nearby lively town with its many restaurants and shops. The frontage of the local supermarket was a sight to behold and inside we found all that we needed to cook for ourselves in the our well-equipped kitchen. In our hired car it was possible to visit other beaches,each with its own style, the variety was amazing. Also a trip to the border with Panama up in the hills was interesting and we included a visit to a banana factory. Between the locals, the wildlife and the scenery we found plenty to interest us and make our trip memorable. The people who were working for Karen could not have been more helpful and unobtrusive. We do hope we can arrange another visit as we are dreaming of going back. Thank you for everything, Karen.”
Where is it?
While our place is right on the beach (only a tropical garden lies between you and the surf!), you are also a 20-minute walk (by beach) or 10-minute bike ride or 5 minute car/taxi ride from the eclectic, funky town of Puerto Viejo. PV is loaded with delicious restaurants - Italian, vegetarian, local (with a Jamaican flair), Brazilian, Israeli...you name it, it seems like we've got it! The town itself also offers fun shopping and great nightlife, if you choose to partake.
In and around the area are opportunities for exploration and adventure - we know amazing tour guides to take you on jungle hikes or kayak tours; horseback riding on the beach and through the jungle; an amazing animal sanctuary (The Jaguar Rescue Center); tours of cacao farms (chocolate); opportunities to snorkel, zip line, surf....it's all nearby!
We fell in love with this gorgeous, wild, authentic area and we hope you will too!
