About this listing
The beautiful Caribbean style, Jungle beach house Casa G&G is located in the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge on a private property of 26000 square meters (28434 yards). Manzanillo is located about 18 kilometres southeast of Puerto Viejo; it's a small, tranquil village on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast which is one of the most beautiful and scenic sites in the country. Fine sandy beaches, gentle waves, coral reefs near the surface of the sea all make this region a paradise for nature lovers, underwater enthusiasts, surfers, sunbathers and more. Spectacular sea views abound with colourful sunrises and sunsets. Scenic jungle around the beach house of tropical coconut trees and rich green vegetation wildlife, exotic chirping birds, howling monkeys, sloths, and not to forget the famous Blue Morpho butterflies will surround and surprise you while you're hanging in our hammock. The lovely wooden structured house is located 85 meters (92 yards) from the most exotic beach of Manzanillo. To enter the national parc gandocca manzanillo (where the house is built)you have to cross a creek which can sometimes be dry, but in the rainy season it might be 2 or 3 feet deep at max. If you want to come by car, use a 4x4!
Waking up and taking a dive into the sea is amazing! There are two separate rooms, each 15 square meters, divided by the bathroom including a toilet and warm water shower. The porch (40 square meters) is heavenly with its view and outside kitchen made out of a forest giant. Here you can relax, cook, eat together at the big table, listen to the geckos, monkeys, toucans and other sounds of the tropical jungle. But what about waking up with the sounds of the ocean...waves slowly coming in..

We can tell you about nearby Puerto Viejo (nightlife, acoustic live sessions at many bars, reggae all around, fabulous cuisine etcetera), venues- hotspots change every now and then,Johnny's Place is great for reggaenight, Maritza's place for live music
Punta Uva (this beach gives you the Blue Lagoon feeling),
Playa Cocles (the place to be for local surfers; world champion native, Gilberto Brown, takes his waves and other local surfers organize tournaments at this beach as the Puerto Viejo Open Pro; though check out the one and only wave in Puerto; Salsa Brava, discover where its name is from; it's a hot an scary wave, but surfers go for it),
Punta Mona ( ecological farming at its best; it's a working organic perm culture farm with over 30 hectares of excellent rainforest land. People from all over the world come to Punta Mona to learn and practice sustainable agriculture, renewable resources, and good healthy jungle living. Annual perm culture courses are held at Punta Mona, often bringing in 30-40 students for a two week total perm culture experience. ),
Bribri (village nearby inhabited by the indigenous BriBri tribe, where you will find and learn how simple life can be) and also the way to go to the most scenic islands of the Caribe: Bocas del Toro, Panama, to get here it is a fantastic trip; a wild and remote border crossing experience. There is an off-the-track border post where you have to walk over a bridge that sees little visitors. All formalities are therefore pretty straightforward and relaxed. When reaching Bocas afterwards by boat, welcomed by locals you'll never forget the trip.
