Guest Access

Our cosy apartment offers private Kitchen-Dining area equipped for light cooking, 1 Bedroom with en suite Bathroom and a Balcony. There is a double bed, hot water, WIFI, fan and screened windows and doors. The apartment has it's own shady outdoor space with a balcony where you can swing in the hammock to kick back and relax or stretch out in the cool to practice yoga, surrounded by a small garden area with beautiful tropical flowers (depending the season), butterflies and birds, and the occasional sloth passing by or howler monkey calling too! We are the last house on our side of the street, nestled at the edge of the jungle and surrounded by the sounds of nature, yet still close enough to the beach you can hear the waves crashing on the shore on a still night.

Interaction with Guests

The apartment is a private space though I and my family also live on the property so we will be nearby should you want help with anything during your stay.

The Neighborhood

Puerto Viejo is a small yet cosmopolitan community located in the South Caribbean, the area offers a huge variety of activities and experiences for all tastes. The town itself is edged with family friendly beaches, the streets buzzing with international restaurants, reggae bars, shops and great nightlife. The area is well known for it's world famous surfing, stunning natural beauty, eco-tourism and proximity to National Parks (Cahuita and Manzanillo) and Wildlife Refuges (Jaguar and Aviarios). This is a fantastic place to come and unwind, enjoy the spas, yoga and alternative health activities, take the many and varied tours and sample the great tastes, sounds and crafts to be found on its streets and at the weekly farmers market. A perfect spot to live the genuine Caribbean experience.
The apartment is just a 5 minute walk to town and the shops, restaurants, bars and beaches. Check out the incredible farmers market on Saturday mornings held behind the 'Casa de Cultura' for amazing local and artisanal products, the 'Bio Mercado' next to Hotel Puerto Viejo for ALL ORGANIC produce, 'Cafe Rico' on the back street for the best breakfast in town, 'Puerto Pirata Deli' on the beach for lunch, 'Salsa Brava' for sunset drinks and snacks, 'Congo Reeff', 'Stashu's', or 'Borojos' for dinner, 'Lazy Mon' for some live music and 'Old Harbour Supermarket' for a more diverse product range.

Getting Around

Puerto Viejo is easy to access by public transport from the capital/airport. Once here it is easy to get around on foot but it is great fun to rent a bicycle to cruise around and explore the area better, there is an inexpensive and reliable bus service operating along the coast and various car rental and taxi services available here also.

Other Things to Note

The apartment is located in a residential neighbourhood, it is located off to the side of the main part of town and is accessed by a rustic gravel road. The space is part of a semi-detached building, comprising the rental apartment on one side and our house on the other. The immediate area is made up of private dwellings and there are no hotels in the 'barrio', it is one of the only truly local neighbourhoods around, offering a more genuine and unique experience of local life during your stay.
