Cabinas Uhaina (3 bungalows) are located in Playa Negra. Each bungalow contains 4 beds (sleeps 5), A/C, bathroom, ceiling fan, small refrigerator as well as a small terrace overlooking a manicured exotic garden, wifi. Surf instructor on site.
Comfortable and affordable bungalows walking distance to one of the best surf breaks in Costa Rica.
Dinner at the cabinas, surf lessons for additional cost. Yoga and massages also available.
Small friendly neighborhood. Surf, eat and chill. Nearest nightlife and shopping is 30 minutes away (Tamarindo)
Public transportation is not very common here. Best is to take taxis or rent a car. In Playa Negra everything is pretty much walking distance.
Before we went back to Europe this was our last stay in Costa Rica. ... and its been one of the best. We stayed for 3 days at the red bungalow which is simple and comfy at the same time and located in a lush green garden like the others. There was nothing we missed and if we could we would have stayed a longer time for sure. Karina and Manu are wonderful hosts that are perfectly connected to the local community and always there with helpful tips. Manu is a great cook, surf teacher and very nice guy in one person from whom you can benefit a lot. Other travelers staying in these bungalows were also very nice and we made some good friends during that time.
After all we can highly recommend this place and hope to come back soon. Pura Vida at Playa Negra!

This is the THE place to stay in Guanacaste for those who like to surf, relax, find adventure, make friends, and/or just absorb another culture. Staying at Manu's surf cabinas was so much more than a typical BnB experience - my friend and I felt like we were part of a community. Manu and Karina are kind, considerate, and very well connected with the local community - they know everything and everyone in the area. They will go out of their way to make sure your stay is fun. The cabinas are extremely comfortable, safe, and private - with comfortable beds and a nice bathroom. The decor is simple/minimalist, yet cozy. The included breakfast provided in the morning is simple - just right to start the day (to include good Costa Rican coffee). When you get there, you can talk to Manu about coordinating dinner at the cabinas for certain nights - which I highly recommend because he is an exceptional chef. There are also plenty of restaurants nearby to grab lunch/dinner - from local Tico cuisine, to Peruvian food, to pizza, to Cali-style tacos. As for the digs, they are called "surf cabinas" because they are a short 10 minute walk to Playa Negra beach, which has great surf (for beginners and advanced surfers alike), snorkeling, and fishing. Manu is also a great surfer (a local legend in the area) and teaches surf lessons. If you are interested in learning to surf I highly recommend talking to him and coordinating some very affordable lessons. Heads up that this is not for folks looking for a five-star hotel or BnB in a tourist town. The location is rustic and away from fancy hotels and expat neighborhoods/compounds. However, Playa Negra and the adjacent town of Los Pargos are extremely safe, the locals are very friendly, and English is widely spoken. It is the perfect nexus between a comfortable western-style BnB and the local Tico lifestyle. We stayed here for 10 days and it was really difficult to leave. Could not have asked for a better trip to Costa Rica - thank you Manu and Karina! We've both said we'll go back to this incredible country, and these surf cabinas will definitely be part of future trips. Pura vida!
