The space

Our houses are simple, clean and in harmony with nature. There is an outdoor kitchen for romantic breakfasts or dinners on the veranda. We have quiet surroundings and many animals right in your own yard. You can see sloths, agoutis, toucans, kinkajous, monkeys and many marsupials. We are on hand to help you with whatever you may need but we never invade your space.

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 are an enjoyable bike ride to town for nightlife and souvenire shopping. Restaurants and grocery shopping are just five minutes away.

Interaction with guests

We are always readily available for questions and information but we absolutely respect your space and privacy.

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is tropical with the sounds of the jungle and waves in the background. Cocles is by far the safest area along the coast with a laid back family vibe. There are a few other rental houses and we live onsite.

Getting around

You can walk to the beach (our beach is truly close by! ) All you need is a bicycle for getting around locally. We have bike rental available. There is also good bus service and taxis are cheap.

Other things to note

We have a total of three casitas

True paradise! Lots of beautiful animals from butterflies and tiny frogs to sloths and tropical birds right in front of the cabin. I'm going to miss not taking a shower with the jungle as my curtain.

One our favorite places in Costa Rica we stayed. Beautiful scenery, close to the beach, and a great experience.

Really lives up to the name. We saw blue morpho butterflies, poison dart frogs, hummingbirds, agoutis, and a two-toed sloth...just from our porch!

My fiance and I spent ten days at The Wild Side and were very happy with it. This place is private and quiet and we were surrounded by the beautiful jungle with all of its amazing sounds and wildlife. It is a perfect location to retreat and within walking and biking distance to entertainment, restaurants and beaches. Lara and Eric were very friendly and helpful! The casa was just like in the pictures! Great vacation place :)

The location is great. Close to the beach, great restaurants nearby. The bungalows are situated far enough from Puerto Viejo but close enough to bike or walk to enjoy it. If you like nature its the perfect spot. Great communication between Lara and Eric before and during are stay.

Absolutely perfect place, and perfect week. The jungalow is even more adorable in real life, and there is a plethora of beautiful wildlife all around! Very short walk to the beach, and an enjoyable bike ride to Puerto Viejo! Would most definitely recommend! Lara and Eric were so helpful! They created a perfect slice of paradise!

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.
