The rhythmic sounds of the nearby ocean make these affordable octagonal wood bungalows spread across a shady, green mango grove the perfect place to practice yoga or just relax. Hammocks and traditional Tico rocking chairs furnish the wraparound decks on each cozy cabin. Ceiling and floor fans, plus screened windows and a high conical roof, help keep them cool. Less attractive, though cheaper, are the rooms in a two-story, orange-and-blue building by the road. Here you’ll find verandas and rocking chairs facing the sea. Four of the second-floor rooms share baths, for half the price. The secluded, scenic pool with a waterfall overlooks the ocean. Memorable, daily yoga classes ($14) are given in a huge, covered open-air pavilion. On Saturdays, classes are by donation; proceeds go to the local school.
