This is a special place. The area is spectacular, some of best beaches in Costa Rica. Lara was very helpful and kind. We can't wait to come back to the wild side.
We absolutely loved The Wild Side Casa Azul! It had the perfect location (not too far from town, but not too close). It was close to amazing beaches and it was nestled away perfectly in the jungle surrounded by amazing wildlife. We saw kinkajous, sloths, geckos, butterflies, hummingbirds (all without having to step foot out of the house!). Lara & Eric were also amazing hosts! They helped us with any questions and gave us some really good tips and advice! Friendly, accommodating, beautiful, cozy & charming. We would recommend this place to anybody!
We had an enjoyable time staying at Casa Azul, rain or shine. It was located just far enough off the main road and businesses to have a quiet ambience, so we could hear the howler monkeys, various birds, and the night life (a nice symphony of insect"chirpings", especially when raining). Although the next casa (Verde) is just a few yards/meters away, the visitors were quiet, and lush landscaping gave it a private feel. Just down the driveway and across the main road, there is access to lovely beaches to walk along, either to PV, or to Punta Uva.
The casa was neat and clean. The kitchen was adequate for cooking meals; some creativity may be needed if staying for a week or more as there is limited storage space, but we made it work.
Lara and Eric were welcoming and responsive hosts, with a wealth of information. We appreciate their efforts!
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!

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.
