Our artsy wooden house is perfect for people that enjoy a calm atmosphere away from the main tourist trails. The place, Bahia Rica, is perfect for relaxing in a hammock and enjoying the jungle sounds, or you can go kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling or fishing with us.

The space
Bahía Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge is at Punta Cuchillo, Paquera on Costa Rica's west coast. We can accommodate up to 10 guests in our artsy wooden house. We are renting the house as a Bed & Breakfast.

The house has 3 rooms and a bathroom. You share the kitchen with other guests if we have someone staying in the cabin "El Bambu". Each room has a double and a single bed. In the biggest room, we can add an extra single bed when needed.

We also have a separate small cabin that accommodates 2 persons (you'll find it as a separate AirBnB listing under "Bamboo cabin w/private beach in jungle setting").

Note! Before Covid-19 we rented out separate rooms in the house, and guests shared bathroom. Due to sanitary restrictions we now rent the house to only one party.

Be aware that the guesthouse is based on a hill, and to get down to the beach area and breakfast area you have to walk a LONG stairway (256 steps). So if you have issues walking stairs, this would not be the place for you.

Bahía Rica kayak and fishing lodge is based on the properties of La Nicoyana a small private nature reserve. So it is very pristine. At Bahía Rica we live close to the nature and take pride in protecting our surroundings.

Where you’ll be

Punta Cuchillos, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Punta Cuchillo is a small non touristy village, but we are conveniently close to the ferry and buses.
It is a safe neighbourhood, and you'll get a feel of a typical Costa Rican lifestyle. Since there are very few people living here we still have an abundance of wild life. Prepare yourself to meet monkeys, anteaters, skunks, armadillos, butterflies, bats, parrots and a lot of other wildlife.
We also have pets on the property; Bella our dog, 4 cats and some neighbor dogs that likes to hang around here.

The Gulf of Nicoya is the perfect place to offer this, and at Bahía Rica the combination of comfort and rustic jungle is perfectly balanced. This balance integrates services, nature and animal expereinces, sports and recreational activities – all in one place.
