Puerto Viejo house description

Looking for THE unique Puerto Viejo experience? Welcome to Mono En La Cara. With a Feng Shui inspired “Baqua” design, this octagonal, open concept 2-story home is reason enough to spend your next vacation on the beautiful South Caribe coast! Perfectly situated in a quiet area just outside of town on Playa Negra (black sand beach) the large spacious, beautifully tiled octagonal first floor encompasses the living room, the dining area and the kitchen/Tiki Bar. From everywhere inside there are beautiful views of the property from the large, screened windows that surround you on all sides, providing direct contact with the tropical vegetation.

Extending behind the artistic spiral staircase leading to the 2nd floor is a very large, fully tiled, open bathroom complete with a large tiled shower and features a bidet, a rather unique amenity in these parts.


At the top of the stairs, you enter 5/8ths of the second floor octagon which contains the main sleeping area. Complete with two double size beds, this large bedroom features cathedral ceilings in an open-air environment with plenty of windows and fresh Caribbean breezes. Adjoining this space is a separate, private bedroom, also equipped with a double bed.

The other 3/8 of the upper floor (remember this is an octagon) is a huge outdoor deck made with beautiful local hardwoods with glorious views to the Caribbean. This deck also continues as a walkway around the sides of the house. This deck is the perfect morning spot for bird watching and breakfast. Then, after a day of exploring the beaches and the wonders of the Talamanca area, it’s also the perfect place to relax watching the sunset with an early evening drink (or that fantastic fresh fish in spicy coconut sauce that you bought from a vendor at the beach) and then planning the rest of your evening. Ah, Pura Vida!

Mono En La Cara is the perfect getaway for families, couples or small group of friends looking for a truly exotic vacation adventure.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Mono en la Cara is situated just steps from the Blue Caribbean waters on a quiet small gravel road just outside of the town of Puerto Viejo. Rain forest vegetation and ecosystems extend down from the Talamanca Mountain range right into the village and to the sands of all the surrounding Caribbean coast beaches. Hundreds of Bird and Wildlife species, including Toucans, Parrots, Trogons, Monkeys, Sloths, Tapirs, Red-Eyed Tree Frogs, Butterflies, and Hummingbirds are readily seen in the area - and right off the deck of our property! The diversity of the beaches is amazing - from popular and world famous surfing beaches to absolutely empty secluded coves and coral reefs, this is a beach lovers paradise. Music lovers can enjoy live authentic Calypso and Reggae, fantastic Jazz and Salsa, much of it at the incredible restaurants which feature an international variety of cuisines. But first, do a full discovery of the classic caribbean coconut infused cooking served at the many 'sodas' and local hangouts.

              Other Activities: Shopping, boating, rock climbing, wildlife viewing, kayaking.

              Why the Owner Chose Puerto Viejo:
              Mono en la Cara is perfectly situated on a secluded road, but close enough to walk into town for restaurants, groceries, banking, fun, adventures, and of course, the beach!
