Tortuguero and the Caribbean Coast Hotels

Escape Caribeño

  • Puerto Viejo de Talamanca


  • Central location without being right in town
  • Gregarious owners


  • Some small, spartan rooms

Fodor's Review

The wonderfully friendly Italian owners—who treat you like family—are what make this place, with immaculate hardwood bungalows lining a pleasant garden amply populated with hummingbirds, just outside town. All cabins have hammocks, mosquito nets, double beds, and even a bunk bed or two for larger groups. Across the road lie two stucco cabins in a wooded spot on the beach. Breakfast is served in a thatch-roof dining area in the center of the garden. You'll receive a small discount if you pay with cash.
