Just south of lively Puerto Viejo and only a few steps from beautiful Playa Cocles (Cocles Beach) on Costa Rica’s South Caribbean, you’ll find Caribe Town Hotel, the perfect place for your vacation adventure. We are a family run hotel offering five Bungalows, one Suite and one private home rental.With a maximum capacity of nineteen, we are able to provide quality, personalized attention to help you enjoy our paradisical area. We are available from 7am to 9pm, seven days a week!
Our team of four: Luis is in charge of maintenance, but as he has learned English with the help of guests and friends, he is always ready to help you. Carla is in charge of housekeeping and laundry and is more than happy to assist. And us, Marc and Jessica, always ready to make plans in advance of your stay, give a hand with any information you might need and of course, we make breakfast from scratch everyday of the week just for you.
Breakfast is included. Breakfast is served on the 1st floor of the main house of the Hotel from 7am to 10am. We serve daily; eggs cooked your way, homemade breakfast sausage and a variety of fresh seasonal local fruits from a local cooperative. Depending on the season we use bananas and papayas from our backyard. Of course, we include fresh Costa Rican coffee, tea, milk and juice. Almost everything is homemade! Our bread and jams, some examples of our constantly changing breakfast options are muffins with bananas and oranges grown onsite, pancakes from scratch, coconut French toast with our homemade brioche bread, our maple syrup…yup….homemade from organic extract – as close as possible to the tree! Don’t forget to try Sundays special of “Gallo Pinto”…the Costa Rican daily breakfast of rice, beans and vegetables!

A lovely place to take some sun on the poolside terrace or enjoy a book in the shade while enjoying a fresh frozen cocktail, beer or local fruit smoothie. Sun loungers await you poolside or a bit of shade at the dining table under the Pipa and sea almond trees is a terrific spot to have a snack and watch the birds in the trees.

Wander the gardens of the hotel and surrounding small roads. Watch our frog pond in the central gardens to see how the tadpoles are coming along and how the population of green dart frogs and red eyed tree frogs is growing. Try to find the mommy and baby sloth that have been hanging out, focus at night for the Kinkajous or just enjoy many varieties of Heleconias and our ever-diversifying collection of animals, plants, flowers and fruits onsite. Depending on the season and migratory routes you can also see; howler monkeys, sloths, agoti/watusa, kinkajous, armadillos, ant eaters, possums, raccoons, butterflies of all varieties, toucans, aracaris, hummingbirds, owls, giant blue crabs, geckos, mountain ducks, oropendolas, woodpeckers, tanagers… or something new…it can happen at any time!
We think it’s important to maintain the beautiful jungle and wildlife we’ve found and try to make it better! We have a profound respect for animal and plant life, local knowledge and believe strongly in helping our local community. We have a recycling center in the parking area of the hotel and we compost for our happy little animal friends in ¨the backyard¨, our old tree property behind the bungalows where you can explore and sometimes visit with a sloth or monkey.
Located halfway between the Cahuita National Park and Manzanillo-Gandoca wildlife refuge with easy access to Tortuguero and Bocas del Toro, Panamá. Surrounded by tropical jungle gardens and close to many amazing beaches. A dream for nature lovers, adventurers and those who simply want to relax in the salt water pool and take life at a slower pace.
Caribe Town is a tranquil place. We love the values; the laid-back local culture and all that nature has to offer in our gorgeous corner of paradise.
