Our peaceful and breezy cabina is in a quiet, family-oriented area. It is also conveniently located just 100m from the beach and the main road which goes all the way to Manzanillo! Easy access to grocery store, restaurants, and shops.

The Space

With a large double bed, a single bed, and a bunk bed, the whole family can stay comfortably! Open all the windows and you will have a second story view of Puerto Viejo and all its colors. Next door, believing in a sustainable way of life, we live simply but healthfully. Conscious travellers can appreciate eco-friendly practices, organic herbs, fruits, and vegetables growing in the garden and also our local permaculture farm.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to a shared kitchen, a space for hand-washing laundry and lines for drying, fresh and organic starfruit, bananas, plantains, when available. There is Wi-Fi access and a shared outdoor space for sitting.

Interaction with Guests

We also live on the property so our family, a few volunteers and other guets are typically in and around the house. We offer a healthy, Afro-Caribbean Cultural breakfast every morning for $5 at 8:30am. We also offer many different tours such as a tour of our permaculture farm learning about our Afro-Caribbean agricultural traditions and our use of the local medicinal plants, learn about the Indigenous tradition of making chocolate, or a bike tour with a picnic and our traditional songs and games.

The Neighborhood

Puerto Viejo is a great place to come and experience another way of living and enjoying life. With 5 different beaches within biking distance, you can rent a bike and take a surf lesson, or just relax on the friendly beaches here in Puerto Viejo. Walking down the street, you can drink fresh coconut water straight from the tree, eat some local, fresh baked banana bread or yucca pudding, and buy some hand-crafted souvenirs made from coconuts, cacao shells, sea shells, one of the many brightly-colored seeds found locally, and other different local fabrics. You can finish the day watching some live music near the beach or watching a futbol game (email hidden). You can really live the Pura Vida.

Getting around

Puerto Viejo is walking, bike, and car friendly. It is a small enough town that you won't need a car to get around, but if you do have one there are spaces to park near the cabinas.

There are also buses to take you to Limon, Cahuita, Bri Bri, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, Manzanillo, and Sixaola.

From San Jose, you will need to take a taxi to the bus stop San Carlos, and from there you can take the bus directly to Puerto Viejo, with a stop in Limon.

If you prefer, we can also help you arrange a private shuttle from the airport or your hotel in San Jose directly to our cabinas here in Puerto Viejo.

Once you arrive in Puerto Viejo, you can use this map to help you get around. (website hidden)

  • Esta cabina esta ubicada en un lugar muy céntrico, para aquellos que no quieren usar su carro para movilizarse, ya que todos los mejores restaurantes y cafés están súper cerca! Hay bastante espacio en sus cabinas, lo único que si cambiaría es tener más utensilios de cocina, también es que nos toco unos compañeros de cocina no muy aseados. Saludos

  • We loved staying at Veronica's place. My wife and three kids were super comfortable there. The house is right close to town but perfectly quiet and peaceful. The hosts are wonderful people who will do anything to make your stay a sweet and comfortable one. They have great connections with the whole community too so if there is anything you need, from good touring recommendations to surfing lessons they have the hookup. I wish we could have stayed for longer and we'll definitely be back.

About
My name is Veronica . I am married and have five kids who are now grown up. We grew up in a little town at the Caribbean Coast in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. My descendants and family are Jamaican. We are very proud of our culture. I grew up in a Cristian family were I learned about natural Healing and that we need to take care of our mind, body, soul and we need to find the balance between the three of them. My grandparents and parents were naturalist, it means that they always worked with plants and herbs. When somebody is sick or has an allergy, they cure them with their knowledge of the plants, trees and herbs. They passed it on to us and my husband and I continue to pass our home remedies (: like fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables) to our children and to other people who wants to change their lives in a healthy way. All these are my inspiration along with the bible and nature that show me that my body is the temple of the holy spirit were God abides. The son , the water, the air, exercise, making time and the trust of God are the law of nature. My husband and I still lives in this small town in Puerto Viejo where everybody knows us and where we do community serves for other people. We offer short and long term accommodations. We have 3 family-size cabinas, and 3 private rooms in our house. The cabinas all have private bathrooms and a shared kitchen, and the rooms in the house are with shared bathroom, kitchen, and living room. We also offer Home Remedies with our natural products, Caribbean Cooking Classes, consulting about health, Spanish lessons, volunteer projects. visit our website: (website hidden)
