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.

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.

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 in a local bar. 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, Bribri, 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 De Limon, with a stop in Limon.
If you prefer, we can also help you arrange a private or shared 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.

Other things to note

Optional $6 Afro-Caribbean Cultural breakfast available at 8:30am every morning.
Please sign up one day before.

Was a great place to stay, just make sure you communicate well with Veronica beforehand. Oftentimes there is no one at the desk to let you in at checkin.

Just like expected, nothing more or nothing less. You get what you pay for. Veronica and her family were great hosts, and the location was great! I have no complaints really

Veronica and her family are wonderful. The morning group veggie breakfast was an excellent way to find out more about her history as well as meeting my fellow travellers. My room (number 6) is excellently located in the corner Of The property so away from the main house. The room was large with a great private bathroom and a small balcony. You can be as private or as social as you want. I would highly recommended this place as great value for money. Thanks Veronica

We had a good stay at Veronica's place. It was a great location a block and a half from the main road, if you didn't have your fan going you could hear some music from the surrounding restaurant but it was way to warm to not have the fan on. Puerto viejo itself from the humidity has a lot of mosquitoes so if staying here I would say bring and wear lots of bug spray because the windows don't have screens and the mosquito net doesn't fully cover the bed. The kitchen was fully loaded with supplied to cook whatever you'd like. One thing to note is in the house rules it only says no smoking but on the actual rules in the room it says no consumption of alcohol in the room or anywhere in the common areas of the place. We are not partiers by any means but I feel that is something that should be informed ahead of booking.

I've stayed many times en Puerto Viejo and Veronica's place is the best place I've stayed. Everyone was very nice, the location was very close to the center (1 minute walk to the beach) and the room was clean and with plenty of space.

Veronica User Profile

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 Christian 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 naturalists, it means that they always worked with plants and herbs. When somebody is sick or has an allergy, they cured 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 sun , the water, the air, exercise, making time and the trust of God are the law of nature.

My husband and I still live in this small town in Puerto Viejo where everybody knows us and where we do community service 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.
