Cariblue Beach & Jungle Resort

2 km (1 mile) southeast of town at Playa Cocles, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limón, 70403, Costa Rica

The youthful Italian owners came here to surf years ago, stayed on, and built a lodging that combines refinement with that hip Puerto Viejo vibe in exactly the right proportions. Cariblue's finely crafted all-wooden bungalows are spaciously arrayed on the edge of the jungle, across the road from the splendid white-sand beaches of Punta Cocles. Cabinas are linked to the main ranch-style building by paths that meander across a gently sloping lawn shaded by enormous trees. Expansive verandas and beautiful tile mosaics in the bathrooms add an air of refinement; hammocks add relaxation. Several of the units have air-conditioning, a rarity here on the Caribbean coast. Breakfasts are huge. Italian cuisine dominates for lunch, and dinner is served at the lively Sole Luna restaurant on-site. Cariblue offers occasional Web-only promotions.
