Puerto Viejo is 2 kms away, 5 minutes driving. Puerto Viejo is an exciting village full of life all hours of the day and night. There are clothing, souvenirs and artisan shops, plenty of restaurants with excellent food and variety of ethical food types, bars, and lounges...
Besides surfing and swimming and taking extended walks along the beautiful beach, you can go horseback riding, take a chocolate tour, ATV riding, go on a canopy tour or visit a nearby wildlife reserve...
The town is located near one of Costa Rica's famous national parks, Cahuita National Park and is minutes from the prestigious reef with swimming, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving. There is certainly no shortage of things to do in and around the area.
We can also help arrange any of the local tours and excursions available.
We were three friends staying at Amelie's apartment in Puerto Viejo (Playa Negra).
Thanks to gps coordinates, the apartment was easy to find and in a lovely location only meters from the beach. The apartment is located on the same property as a rental house and that of the caretaker. The property is walled and access is via a gate. This was great, as the property was private and we felt very secure. We were greeted by the caretaker, with whom we had basic communication as our Spanish is not so good. This did not present any concern and Jose kindly showed us everything and explained slowly as best he could. He also left us a lovely welcome with candles at our doorstep the first night.
In terms of the apartment, we thought it best to leave our comments, both positive and negative:
Well equipped with all the basic essentials (mineral water, soaps, toilet paper, coffee, cooking essentials, towels etc)
Big welcome bowl of fresh fruit
Big, powerful fans for the warm days and no need to use aircon
On the second day of our stay, Jose came and tidied the apartment
Easy contact with Amelie
No bathroom door, only a curtain which was a little difficult at times in terms of privacy and going to the toilet
Beds are quite small and mattress on single bed has died
WiFi connection very unreliable and went to a cafe in Puerto Viejo when needing to connect
We probably wouldn't choose to stay here again but in terms of value for money and location, the apartment is a good option. It might also suit a family more than a group of friends, especially in terms of the lack of bathroom door.
