“Cozy and quaint cottages with kitchenettes close to Puerto Viejo and on a beautiful beach.”
Aguas Claras is the only place I have stayed when visiting the Caribbean side of Costa Rica. The cottages are very quaint with kitchenettes and they come with all the necessary utensils. Coffee makers, stoves, pans, etc, etc. It is a short walk to the beach, roughly 200meters down a path that routes through the jungle. When on the beach during the week I have walked miles with only seeing a couple other people. The cottages do have ceiling fans in the bedrooms but there is no A/C. The cottages are all done in bright colors and our favorite is the Red Cottage which I have attached a photo of. It is a 2 bedroom cottage that have locking doors and an open kitchen and living room floor plan. There are no TV's or phones in the rooms, but the registration center does have them if you can't live with out them. There is also a nice restuarant on the property that is open for breakfast or lunch. I don't think they are open for dinners but not really sure since we mainly cook in the cottage or go out to a restuarant for dinner. It is located just south of the town of Puerto Viejo which offers plenty of night life and shopping. Most mornings you can hear the howler monkeys and I have seen a toucan one morning also.
