Hotel Caribe Town, relax just steps away from Puerto Viejo
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, the perfect place for your vacation adventure.
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 and those who simply want to relax in the salt water pool and take life at a slower pace. You’ve found paradise at Caribe Town! We look forward to helping you make the vacation of your dreams a reality.
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.
We think its important to maintain what 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.
Our salt water pool includes benches with hydro massage jets, a waterfall, swim up bar with stools and lights for nighttime. A lovely place to take some sun or enjoy a book in the shade while enjoying a fresh frozen cocktail.
Caribe Town offers WIFI throughout, “Give a book, Take a book” Library and games to share. Cold drinks are available in the bar or pool during operating hours, just ring the bell for service.
Enjoy the services of the Hojas del Paraiso Spa (please click here for details and pricing) at the experienced hands of Dr. Helen Etimov. Full menu of options available from aromatherapy massage, acupuncture, body treatments, facials and Thai-chi. Try the house special chocolate exfoliating body massage and scrub, using the first press cacao from from local Tsiru-ue Indigenous tribe, a treat not to be missed!

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 the population of green dart 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 plants, flowers and fruits onsite.

Playa Cocles, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. Costa Rica
Just 150 meters from Caribe Town’s front gate, start your beach walk on Playa Cocles in either direction and with each turn in the beach, a new vista appears. Walking the beach provides hours of adventure and enjoyment.
“Beach Break” surf beach is 1km north of us at the start of Playa Cocles where the waves break higher. We are close to Punta Uva where you can take a hike to the lookout point above the coral door and see “the last Pirate grave”, or continue to the end of the road in Manzanillo and eat beachside at the famous Maxi’s.
Cahuita National Park is only 20 minutes north offering gorgeous areas for nature hikes and snorkeling.
Truly a slice of paradise!
