Fodor's Expert Review Physis Caribbean B&B

Miss Winny Town Rd., Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limón, 70403, Costa Rica Fodor's Choice

If you want to experience the area's well-known vibe but have outgrown Puerto Viejo's backpacker digs, this lodging—meaning "nature" in Latin—is the ticket. Four large, sparkling, brightly colored rooms ramble throughout the house. All have air-conditioning and dehumidifiers—a rarity here—as well as safes and flat-screen TVs with either Netflix or satellite cable. Owners Juliet and Matthew serve a lovely breakfast in the upstairs dining area. Covered lounge areas with huts and benches are scattered around the gardens and are cooled, literally, by ceiling fans and, figuratively, by soft Caribbean beats.
