the house is a small piece of paradise if you want to be in a calm place close to wild life ! Lara's family is friendly and helpful. Our time was a nice and we will be pleased to stay there again !! thank you for the lovely place and the great welcoming !!
We had a lovely time in Coccles with 'The Wild Side' as our base. The hut was clean and in a beautiful secluded little clearing away from the road so you really got the jungle feel. Unfortunately we weren't blessed with good weather but still made the most by cycling to the nearby town and attractions... The Jaguar Rescue was my favourite!!!
Lara and Eric were BEYOND wonderful and so was la casa verde! We rented bikes from them and had the most wonderful week. It is a perfect location especially for a couple. both Eric and Lara helped us out more than we could have ever asked for and would recommend this piece of paradise to anyone.
Me encantó la casita, muy comoda, practica y limpia. El lugar esta sobre calle principal entonces es privado y silencioso. Solo se escuchan los animales del bosque. Definitivamente regresaré. Lara muy amable y atenta
Everything we dreamed of and more. Lara and her husband were the best hostes, so helpfull. We would definitely go back :-) A little piece of heaven. Thank you so much, and sorry for the noice. Pure Vida
Sono stata da erik e lara una settimana. Il posto é magnifico, un vero paradiso per chi ama la natura, il mare e il fascino della giungla. super disponibili per qualsiasi cosa, gentili e premurosi. C é la possibilitá di affittare biciclette per spostarsi in autonomia e il mare é uno dei più belli visti in quella costa. Ripartirei domani!!!Pura vida!
This was a super awesome place. It's everything I imagined and more. It was one of the most restful sleeps I had the whole trip, secluded off the road and in the jungle. Both of the hosts were incredibly nice and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is in the area.

About the Host, Lara
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.
