About this listing
15 minute river float to beach! This recently built 2 bedroom 1 bath casita has hot water , WIFI, is 1 block from the supermarket, 5 min walk to beach and the local bus passes every 2 hours. Rental includes tubes for river floats to beach. Clean. New
Apart from the house being recently built and very clean, with very comfortable beds, and extremely convenient to everything here on the Caribbean coast, one thing that sets the house apart is that it is located on the property that sits above the beautiful Rio Cocles, which is rich in wildlife and natural beauty. See Turtles, Toucans, Iguanas and Monkeys while peacefully floating down the slow and shallow river to the ocean on complimentary tubes. A unique and low cost activity that is perfect for families.
The house is super convenient to everything! A supermarket is just a few minutes walk from the house. You can catch the bus to Manzanillo or to Puerto Viejo from the main road which is just a minute walk away. The bus passes every couple of hours and costs approximately $1.25 USD. There are bike rental places nearby that offer bikes for approximately $6 per day, which would allow you to explore just about anywhere.
Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are just a few minute bike ride from the house.
I am happy to help with anything you need from setting up a zip Line tour, to visiting a local chocolate farm and learning how the magical chocolate here is grown and produced, to directing you to the nearby Jaguar Animal Rescue Center (a must see for families).
I can also lead you in the right direction for Yoga classes, the best and most reasonable restaurants, and the most interesting places in the area to visit.
The house is located on my personal residential property which is located directly on the Rio Cocles. You are welcome to take the tubes and explore the river, and float down to the beach which is a short float.
Interaction with Guests
Originally from the U.S., I have been living in Cocles for 15 years and am very familiar with all the cool places to go and see. I live on the property and am available to help with any questions or suggestions.
I also offer Yoga classes and Massage - specializing in Thai, Deep Tissue, Reiki and Cranial Sacral.
I am an avid surfer and love to teach surf lessons at the nearby surfing beach just a 5 minute bike ride away. I have 2 children and especially love to teach family surf lessons.

No pets please (I already have a cat and a dog and they like to have their own space!)
