Relax and take in the beauty of the Southern Caribbean at the Hotel Cariblue in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Positioned just across from the beautiful Playa Cocles, this midrange lodge offers a combination of rustic bungalows and hotel-style rooms. Beach goers will love to play in the surf of Cocles Beach, and nature lovers are sure to be enchanted by the natural wonders of the Southern Caribbean. Hotel amenities include a restaurant and bar, tropical gardens, swimming pool, jacuzzi, and WiFi in some common areas.
The long, white sand beaches of the Southern Caribbean are ideal for some fun in the sun. The north end of Playa Cocles is perfect for learning how to surf and lessons are available daily. Or, check out the Salsa Brava break in front of Puerto Viejo for some seriously big waves! Good snorkeling is possible during drier seasons at nearby Gandoca Manzanillo or Cahuita National Park.
The Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge and Cahuita National Park also offer fantastic wildlife observation opportunities on land. Monkeys and sloths are abundant at each location, though Cahuita National Park would have to take the edge. Colorful pit vipers and frogs are common as are iguanas and toucans.
The Cariblue Hotel provides a tranquil, laid-back experience. Towering rainforest trees and lush vegetation surround the grounds. There is a large swimming pool in the center, lined with lounge chairs. The hotel is also home to the Aqua Caribbean Spa, offering a broad range of delightful treatments, massages, and other spa services.
The open-air SoleLuna Restaurant is in a spacious Rancho in front of the pool area, serving a tasty fusion of Caribbean cuisine. Enjoy tropical drinks at the hotel's Totem Beach Bar inside of the restaurant.
The Cariblue Hotel offers a wide range of rooms. The rustic bungalows are charming reminders of the Caribbean. The Jungle House offers multiple bedrooms. Other rooms are in a building at the front of the property. Please check the Amenities Section for details about each room style.
All in all, the Cariblue delivers an affordable Caribbean lodging experience to its guests. Jungle and nature surround it, yet the hotel is right across the street from one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica. Give us a call to add this unique lodge to your Costa Rica vacation today!
