Lara et son mari nous ont très chaleureusement reçu, nous avons adoré cette cabane de luxe à 5 minutes de la plage en pleine jungle, bercé par le bruits des animaux.
La simplicité est là ainsi que tous les détails très soignés.
Lara was super responsive and friendly. The place was clean, cozy and neat, and has some really cute architectural details, too. It's an easy walk to the beach, and the sounds of the rain on the roof and outside is great for sleeping.
The Casa Azul is a great and calm place to stay,directly in the jungle but still close to the beaches and everything you need. You feel that they put a lot of love in it and we would always recommend it. Lara and Eric are a friendly couple and helped us with everything we needed. You should rent a bike to get to Puerto Viejo or Manzanillo it's very nice to drive around a bit. Thank you for the good time we had there!
We had a wonderful time at The Wild Side's Casa Azul. It's ideally located just out of the hussle of Puerto Viejo but within easy reach of restaurants, bars and beaches. The beautiful gardens and quiet ambience make you feel as if you are totally alone. Clean and very comfortable we would stay again in a heart beat.
Lara and Eric's place was exactly what we were looking for during our trip to Costa Rica! Quiet, steps from the beach, and beautiful. It is a quick bike ride into town, but far enough away to leave the noise behind. Lounging on the porch we could hear the ocean and the Costa Rican wildlife. Eric helped us find one of the many resident sloths. There is bike rental just down the road which is the best way to get around the area. We loved riding south to Manzanillo and stopping at the beaches and restaurants along the way. Not far north there is a surfboard rental as well.
We enjoyed breakfast and evening cocktails in the outdoor kitchen and seating area. The hammock was my favorite! A comfortable bed with netting allow you to keep the windows open at night.
Lara and Eric were so friendly and great with communication. They were always attentive to make sure we had everything we needed!
Great location away from the noise. The house is cozy, clean and comfy; the beach is quite accessible from its location. Puerto Viejo is two miles away, but the main road is very narrow and there are many large vehicles constantly coming through, so walking to PV might be tricky.

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.
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.
