Fodor's Expert Review Escape Caribeño

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limón, 70403, Costa Rica

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. For a less salty swim, opt for a dip in the new pool. 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.
