The place is simply great! You are in the jungle with all the necessities and still walking distance from restaurant, the beach and not to far from night life if you wish to. La Pura Vida! Lara and Eric were great host and provided us with pertinant information about the area and ensured we were all settled in.

Lara and Eric's place is darling. You are right in the middle of the jungle. If you are a wildlife lover, this is a place for you! We had sloths just above the dwelling, agoutis running about, and tucans flying above us. It was a wonderful experience. Be prepared to share your space with these creatures as well as with house geckos and insects. Lara and Eric and very accommodating and knowledgeable about the wildlife/area. Would highly recommend!

Fresh, bright, clean! Private jungle oasis for me and next to a beautiful beach that I had to myself most of the time. Perfect experience!

You will not find a better place to stay!!! Eric & Lara's airbnb was a magical place. We arrived to a very friendly and warm welcome from Eric. He helped us organize the shuttle to and from the place. He recommended restaurants, day trips, activities and helped us spot the three sloths who live above the house. While staying at the Wild Side, we saw sloths in the trees above our house every day, hummingbirds, agouti, howler monkeys, lizards and tons of gorgeous butterflies. It was a skip away from the beach, restaurants and stores. It was a quick drive/bike to Puerto Viejo, very close to the Jaguar Rescue Centre and Caribeans Chocolate tour. It was our first trip to Costa Rica and we would go back to the Wild Side and Playa Cocles, it was beautiful, wild, magical. We loved it. THANK YOU Eric & Lara, you have a magical place!

Eric and Lara's jungalow was perfect for our honeymoon getaway. You are surrounded by the jungle yet your in a clean comfortable environment. Furthermore you are a 5 minute bike ride to downtown Puerto Viejo where there is plenty of restaurants and fun things to do. Eric and Lara were fantastic hosts and were willing to help us at any moment to make our stay run smoothly. Also, they gave us a lot of helpful advice. We will definitely be coming back to experience some more Pura Vida!

Lara And Eric User ProfileLara And Eric is a superhost.

My name is Lara and, together with my husband Eric, we have created The Wild Side. We wanted something different than what we normally find while travelling in Costa Rica. We wanted to offer an affordable stay, but it be at the same time elegant, simple, and, above all, clean. Our concept is geared toward single travellers or couples who want a quiet place to rest, a kitchen to prepare meals, and a base to enjoy what the area offers. We are very lucky to live in one of the most perfect locations along the coast. Our houses are literally minutes from unspoiled, empty beaches. Most people tell us that they see more animals in our own yard than in the national parks!
Originally I am from Savannah, Georgia, and Eric is from Sitges, Spain. We are both dedicated surfers and enjoy the peace of natural living.
I work as a hairstylist in my own jungle salon. Eric is an artist/woodworker..his handmade wooden toys can be found in specialty shops in Puerto Viejo.
