Fodor's Expert Review Playa Negra Guesthouse

Playa Negro road, Cahuita, Limón, 70403, Costa Rica Fodor's Choice

This gracious, Québécois-owned lodging set in lush, hibiscus-strewn gardens has become a Cahuita favorite. The bright, tile-floored standard rooms sparkle and contain refrigerators, coffeemakers, and huge bathrooms. For not much more, though, try to snag one of the three cottages, designated yellow, green, and blue, with lattice-fenced porches. Two of the cottages have two bedrooms and can sleep up to four people; all three have fully equipped kitchens. Monkeys and iguanas scamper around the grounds. Barbecues around the pool round out the social offerings.
