                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Here we are horse riding on the beach directly in front of the house. We love Costa Rica, especially the Puerto Viejo and Cocles Beach area. The houses are our dream and we hope that everyone who stays in them enjoys them as much as we do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cocles:
                  Costa Rica offers a wide variety of spectacular terrain , animals and plants. With its unique location it boasts both Pacific and Caribbean coast lines. The Caribbean Coast offers a more relaxed friendly holiday with the added excitement of some extreme sports, for those who want to venture away from the delicious local food, drinks and beach. There are many reasons why Puerto Viejo is known as the most happening town on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. There is so much to see and do here, but far and away the overall vibe here is the 'pura vida' that Costa Rica is so famous for. So whether you come to relax under the palms on one of Puerto Viejo's beautiful beaches or try and tackle the surf at Salsa Brava (just 100 yards away) or Cocles, there is also great snorkeling and diving in the areas active coral reefs. Or how would you like to hike and bike through the jungle? There is also excellent white-water rafting in the area. It is all possible here. Puerto Viejo is also conveniently nestled between two of the area's most beautiful national parks where white-faced and howler monkeys, toucans and sloths abound. You will also want to come just to sample some of the area's famous dishes like the Caribbean-style rice and beans made with coconut and many other exquisite varieties of food in this little village.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Cocles Beach is the winner of the highly coveted Costa Rican government Blue Flag for pristine beach and is the only lifeguard-protected beach on the Caribbean Coast. The golden sands meet the warm Caribbean ocean and from the beach no buildings are visible. This beach has both great surfing at one end and safe swimming for families with children at the other.
