Have you ever been in a place feeling so relax that you do not want to live.... So this is the right place to come.
This apartment with wood floors will make you feel the Caribbean vibes, a simple but pleasant life.
You might see a slot from this balcony, or you can watch all kind of beautiful birds flying around.
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Clear water, coconut palms, great surf and a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere make Puerto Viejo a favorite among travelers.
Formerly a small fishing village, Puerto Viejo has grown rapidly in recent years. Avid surfers, drawn to the famous Salsa Brava waves, have made Puerto Viejo a hot spot on the surfing circuit.
The center of town now has many souvenir and surf shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and tour companies.
There was just something about the place when I saw the listing, that appealed to me. Very minimal with no artificially imposed sweetness to detract from the almost raw primitiveness of the environment, the air and humidity, the proximity of wild life, the beach, the deep jungle. Nothing between me and belonging in the deep tropics. This is where I belong. Well, after I can convince someone.
Alex and his beautiful bride were charming and hospitable to a fault. We were greeted by a freshly opened coconut with straw, and a shot of excellent tequila. (What was that brand, Alex? You told me but I forgot.). Whatever we needed was happily provided. Thanks to Alex for helping get a remedy for me after a bout of difficulty. It worked. Was back in the slightly sunburned peek of health the next day! Blessings for the two of you. _/|\_
What an amazing place to spend four days!!! Alex was an amazing host. The location is perfect to see all of puerto Viejo. Will defiantly be staying here next time I'm in town.
Nous avons passe un excellent séjour de 10 jours chez Alexander; La location située sur le niveau haut de la maison typiquement créole est très agréable, simple mais vaste et propre, Belle terrasse avec hamac au contact de la nature et notamment des oiseaux! Alexander est un hôte prévenant et attentionné, nous avons beaucoup apprécié sa gentillesse, les fruits, jus et noix de cocos fraiches au retour de promenades.... :-) Nous recommandons totalement cette adresse! Merci pour tout Alex!
My sister and I just had the pleasure of staying 4 nights in the gorgeous Casa Caribe. The pictures depict it perfectly and the location cannot be beat (-5 minutes walk to puerto Viejo centre, bars, restaurants etc). The kitchen is sufficient for making meals if you prefer to stay in and the wifi worked great. Alex and Yanira both have busy schedules and somehow still manage to be welcoming, informative, generous and attentive hosts. We were lucky enough to get two of Alexs local tours(an amazing waterfall and manzanillo bay snorkeling), seriously if he offers these to you do not pass them up! Alex makes an incredible tour guide, filled with local knowledge and interesting stories. We had some great conversations over fresh young coconut milk and an array of tropical fruit from the backyard. For an amazing experience on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica look no further than Casa Caribe! Pura Vida!
Thanks to Alexander for his warm welcome. We really appreciated the excellent fresh fruit cocktail prepared at arrival. His home is exactly as described and we just regret not having spent one more night there. It was perfectly clean, comfortable and really nice. We just woke up on the morning by the song of the birds and Alexander prepared us our first pipas to taste. We made a 15 days road trip all around Costa Rica and it is one of our best accommodation.. We highly recommend it for price and high level quality. Sylvie and alain
Alex and Yanira were terrific hosts. They brought us amazing coffee each morning and were very helpful with any questions we had. We mentioned our love of sloths, and Alex was able to point some out that we could see from the porch!
The apartment itself was spacious and clean, and the porch and hammock were great places to relax each morning and evening. It is also a very short walk to a beautiful black sand beach, which we enjoyed each day. We wish we were still staying there!
Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed up here as well and it was paradise! We looooved the apartment, full of air and space and quiet. Loved loved loved!
Alex and Yanira are incredible hosts!!! They know how to treat guests. Good Choice in Puerto Viejo for sure! I will come back and I will suggest it.
Not reliable. We booked 1 night in Alexander's place, tried to change the date 6 days before (not cancel) - by email and by AirBnB. He let about, acted like he did not understand our request and was not clear.
He finally cashed, and we lost our money. Not advisable.
Dear Stephanie I understand that you are pretty mad about your $53, but I am pretty sure you know how to read, the room you booked is under a type of policies named STRICK according to Air bnb and Casa Caribe.
( please check AIR BNB page, same page you booked on)
So please don't you blame me for failing to comply with part of the agreement you accepted with AIR BNB and Casa Caribe.
Next time if you are wrong you should try to ask in I nice, respectful and polite way and then we can break the rules. (zero threats!)
Best regards. Alex.
It seems like there's a million places to stay in Puerto Viejo, but we're really glad we stayed with Alex. The place is great and we enjoyed that it's a little further (2-3 mins) out of the town centre, which made it more relaxing. We found the beach directly opposite perfect for swimming and enjoyed Alex's homemade lemonade and fresh coconut water.
After a long day of traveling from New York to PV, I was so thrilled to arrive to the warm welcome of Alex and Yanira who were wonderful hosts. The room was perfect - comfortable and in the best location. I loved waking up to the sounds of the jungle and then to a cup of the best coffee I've ever had provided by my dear hosts. Alex and Yanira know PV, so listen to their ideas for what to do during the day. I was lucky to have Alex take me through the tremendously beautiful Cahuita National park and then to the Bribri waterfalls. What a trip! Thank you both so much for being the perfect hosts!!!
