Fodor's Expert Review La Costa de Papito

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

Papito's raised cabins extend back into the property's wooded grounds and are furnished with whimsical, bright, tropical-blue-and-zebra-stripe prints. Breakfast, with an extra cost of $8, is served at the table on your own porch, which also has a hammock or swing chair. Pamper yourself at the small on-site spa. You'll get a small discount on the room rate if you pay in cash, and you can find a lot of online-only specials, too.
