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!

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.

Other things to note

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

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!

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!

The place was nice as per my daughters description. It was what is in the pictures. Bring extra bug spray and be sure you know EXACTLY where you are going, because the taxi drivers did not know where this place was, they read word for word and had no luck. My daughter was dropped off at the gate and had to walk around the jungle trying to find the place with our directions until she walked into what she thought was someone elses backyard, it was Eric. He showed my daughter where she was staying, the key was on a tie on a nail on the door. He told her they would be back shortly to check her in, but, never came back. She waited 2 hours. She had no idea the beach was right in the back yard basically either. I was a little disappointed to hear this because I chose this place based on the ratings and the close communication I received before hand. I explained my daughter was there with the University studying and they were taking a trip to Limon, staying at the Carablu Hotel, but, that my daughter wanted to get away and just be on her own, not sharing a room, she is a little older than the other students. She got that and with no direction besides what was in the description of the place on the site. Unfortunately, It is obvious, if you stay only 1 night, you will not get the royal treatment the others spoke so highly about in their reviews. Its a beautiful place, just treat all of your visitors the same whether 1 night or 10. Thank you

Response from Lara And Eric:
This review is very surprising to us! Of course it wasn't easy for us to communicate with the guest seeing as it was going through the mom and then passed onto the daughter. We do give very specific directions on how to arrive and recommend printing those directions as there are no addresses, road names, etc and not all taxi drivers speak English so yes it is important to know where you are. But in Shoney's case she had simply turned into the neighbors drive on the right whereas we are on the left. We honestly didn't check back in on her because she gave us the feeling that she wanted to be left alone and as her mom had mentioned that she was trying to relax and be away from people, we tried to respect that. We absolutely give everyone the same treatment even for just one night! This is obviously a misunderstanding and I guess a learning experience to deal with people directly rather than through a third party. Sorry for your unfavorable experience, we honestly thought that your daughter just wasn't interested in talking to us. Pura Vida

Lara and Eric were wonderful hosts! The place was kept clean during our stay and Lara and Eric were nearby in case we had any questions or concerns. When we arrived Eric came over and showed us some places to look for sloths and Tucans. The beach is walking distance and there is a supermarket nearby to buy groceries. The value of this place well exceeds what you pay for it. Lara and Eric are extremely attentive to your needs. We even had a light bulb out one night and Eric came and changed it in the middle of a rainstorm. We were also asking them where to get a taxi and Lara just called up a taxi driver for us that picked us up right outside our house. So helpful and so convenient! I would recommend this place to anyone! Thank you Lara and Eric!

Lara and Eric were great, offered suggestions on where to go and places to eat. The place was very nice and you felt right in the jungle, but a very short walk to the beach. Very peaceful and relaxing.

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.
