I had a great stay at Lisa and Christians. I highly recommend staying here. It's peaceful and quiet and an easy walk into town. The beach is across the street and it was perfect to go for a swim after exploring the town.

This was my first time traveling in a foreign country alone and Lisa and Christian's place could not have been better! It was perfectly located and super easy for me to walk or bike anywhere I wanted to go-it was within 10 minutes of great beaches, surf lessons, yoga studios, restaurants, shops, and a brewery! Lisa let me rent a bike from her and she gave me great tips on where to go, about the local culture, and places to eat. They helped make my trip fun and safe.

Thanks for the nice review, Jackie. We know we're on track when we see how satisfied you were with your stay at our place. I especially appreciate hearing how you felt as a woman traveling alone. I have done so myself, for many years and it is gratifying when I can support other women with a safe and comfortable place to stay.

Lisa's place was clean and very close to the beach. She was more than accommodating and her hidden jungle beach house had everything to make Puerto Viejo feel comfortable.

Lisa and Christian are very lovely hosts and in the house is all very well organized. You get also suggestions for activities in the area. The room is small but good for a budget travel. I can recommend this place.

Response from Lisa And Christian:
Thanks for the nice review, Enrico. True the rooms are small, but we have various other places to lay in the hammock or sit on the sofa and read a book or watch the birds. And most people are so busy doing all the fun things available in the area that they don't need a big room to sleep. I'm glad you enjoyed our place.

I enjoyed my stay at the hidden jungle beach house very much :) the single room was not too small and very confortable. Lisa and christian were always very nice and gave alot of good advices. The beach is very close and everything was as described. If you are travelling from Sanjose i would really recommend to do the rafting trip to puerto viejo, it is really worth it!

Thanks for the nice review, Ahmed. We enjoyed having you and I'm happy you enjoyed staying at our place. And the rafting - YES! I've done it 4 times. It is great fun! I was happy to arrange it for you. Lisa

Lisa and Christian are very nice people but i found their place a bit smaller for my taste, therefore maybe there are also so many rules, but no worries even if you forget some you can always find them attached to the walls! :)

I had a wonderful stay at Hidden Jungle Beach House. Lisa was very helpful and accommodating. She was exceedingly helpful with travel arrangements to and from her place. Her communication was always prompt. Christian was also helpful and friendly. HJBH is clean and quiet. Yet it is also a very short easy walk into Puerto Viejo. And, of course, the beautiful Playa Negra is just steps away from the front gate. Lisa's signage throughout makes it easy to share the common areas with other travelers. Her suggestions for excursions and explorations were very useful.

Lisa And Christian User Profile

I’m Lisa Valencia, a writer and Costa Rica guide who has lived in Costa Rica’s Caribbean since 2007. I opened Hidden Jungle Beach House in 2011, running my guest house alone for 3 years. Then Cristian Montenegro came into my life and has been working with me here for the past three years. We got married in November 2016. So now at our place you have two hosts - one North American and one Nicaragua/Costa Rican.

We both believe in following our dreams and living life to the absolute fullest. And always encourage others to do the same. Many of our guests come here looking for more than a vacation. They use their time here in nature, away from the stress of the "civilized" world to ponder and reflect on their choices in life. Some go back to their lives with renewed energy and enthusiasm. Some discover a new way to live. And some don't go back at all!

Cristian and I are thankful, grateful and appreciative of every aspect of our life here - including our guests. Cristian will show you sloths and iguanas in the trees around the property. He'll tell you stories about the little agoutis who come eat our compost and the time we had a snake for a neighbor. I'll share the story of my discovery of a new life in Costa Rica. And I look forward to hearing your story and encouraging your Costa Rica dreams to come true!
