The space

Our houses are simple and clean. We have quiet surroundings and many animals right in your own yard. You can see sloths, agoutis, toucans, kinkajous and more. Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and the waves crashing in the distance. We are on hand to help you with whatever you may need.

Guest access

We have direct beach access!!! There are few beach access roads along the coast so this is an important feature for those who want to walk down to the beach without having to bike or drive. We provide you with a beach hammock so you can stretch out between two coconut trees and be lulled by the sounds of the ocean.

Interaction with guests

We are readily available for questions and information. We never invade your space or privacy.

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is tropical with the sounds of the jungle and waves in the background. Very safe and very accessible. We live onsite.

Other things to note

We have two other houses which may be suitable for couples travelling together

This was an incredible experience! You truly are sleeping in the rainforest, steps away from the beach, and a short bike ride into the charming town of Puerto Viejo. The house is simple but all you need. And to top it off, on my first morning, the hosts brought me some fresh local ground coffee for a perfect pour-over. There is some new development happening in the area so it did get a little noisy at times, but most of the time it's just you and the sloths :)

We had a great night at the Wild Side. Lara and Eric were there when we arrived, showed us around and gave us some great local tips. It was secluded and private, with a lovely garden, but close enough to everything that we could ride and walk around. I would definitely recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wild Side! The most simple check-in/check-out process, and much easier to find than I anticipated. Across the road from a quiet beach, the home is set in a super lush environment where we were constantly spoiled with the sounds of birds, howler monkeys, and rainstorms on the tin roof in the night/morning. Perfect location, really - away from the traffic of the main part of Puerto Viejo and easy enough to get there via bike/car. We rented a car, which helped us get around a little more spontaneously, and the area was super easy to navigate. We just got home this morning, and miss it already! Can't wait to visit again soon. :)

Absolutely amazing place. Very clean and well kept. Beach just across the road. It just gets better the further you go towards Punta Uva. Loved experiencing all the local wildlife in the front garden while we were having our morning coffee. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

We had a great stay. The "junglo" is nicely situated for many activities. The beach it's a short walk away. I also wanted to say thank you to Lara and Eric for helping out with some transpotation logistics.

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.
