The Green Forest House is located in what I consider a central location but not at all crowded with other properties. The 2 main attractions in Uvita are the waterfalls and the beach and it is midway between both. Things are spread out in Uvita so sometimes a taxi is nice. Avi is very familiar with the area and very...

Guy runs the place and makes you feel like a family visitor rather than a hotel guest. He welcomes all travelers, provides delicious breakfasts and dinners. With Guy...

Treated as family, always smiling and friendly people. Hot water wich is always good worked great and the food was awsome. Cold beer on the spot and I actually found it very cheap (30$ for a couple). Lots of things to do nearby. Recommended 100%.
