The space

Casa Galim: is in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica’s province of Limon, bordered by the Talamanca
Mountains. This stunning place of amazing pristine beaches will inspire
your Caribbean dreams. The peaceful shoreline is a great place for sun
worshipers. Surfers love the waves. Spectacular sea views abound with
colorful sunrises and sunsets. Scenic jungle of tropical coconut trees and
rich green vegetation harbors wildlife, exotic birds and thrilling waterfalls.

Our beach houses are located 45 meters (50 yards) from the sea!
Take in the clean fresh air while you enjoy wandering among the fruit
filled coconut trees on our wide shore. This lovely haven is tranquil and
secluded yet only 3.5 km (2 miles) from the center of Puerto Viejo, where
you will find fabulous cuisine and entertaining nightlife.
In our cozy cabinas you’ll fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves
and awaken to chirping birds, howling monkeys and the sounds of the
tropical jungle. Wildlife surrounds you - iguanas, geckos and lizards,
toucans, sloths, monkeys and the famous Blue Morpho butterfly.
In the turtle season (summer and fall) huge leatherback turtles lay their
eggs right on our beach.

This is a two story building with separate accommodations on the
ground floor and the top floor.
Each unit has a private entrance and can sleep up to 6 people.
There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two twin
beds. The rooms have large windows - overlooking the sea, the creek,
and the forest. There is a Comfortable living room with a convertible sofa
which can also sleep two people. The kitchen is equipped with utensils,
a gas stove and a refrigerator.
Large balconies overlooking the sea, hammocks, hot water, garden showers
and free WI-FI and a BBQ in the garden, to grill your catch of the
day - these are just some of the amenities we offer. You’ll enjoy the
pleasant sea breeze, which helps cool the house. And you’ll be
mesmerized by the sweeping views from wide balconies, including a
southern view of Puerto Viejo and a view to the north of Cahuita National
Park (which is only 800 meters - half a mile - away).

HOLA, We always have plenty of Hot water! we have a solar system, it take few moment to the water to reach to the head showers. We also have a back up for that solar system if need ( like if have few days with out sun) We are on the beach, 45 m from the sea.we have in the garden jungle bushes. Some times we cut a little bit the bushes, but we try to avoid cutting, for the sake of the wild life. We work with an advance reservations. When one unit is reserved we don't change it. We always do our best to please our guests! Thanks, Yosi, Casa Galim
