About this listing
Welcome to The Wild Side! Tropical gardens surround our lovely casitas. With a kitchen, outdoor dining, Wifi, hot water, fan, hammock, mosquito nets and queen bed. You feel the jungle all around you but are perfectly situated to enjoy the beach too. We are just 200 meters from the beach so you don't need a car or even a bike to enjoy it. Our guests always tell us they wish they could stay longer!
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.
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.

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.
