                      We are a short walk or bike ride from a variety of awesome beaches, surf beaches, snorkeling, you name it. In the other direction are 40,000 acres of virgin rainforest, abundant with wildlife, toucans, monkeys, jungle cats. This is a great place to swim or hike and just enjoy the marvels of nature.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: Friends brought me to this part of Costa Rica in 2003 and I fell in love with the friendly community of Cocles. From the first night listening to the frogs, birds and monkeys, I was hooked and decided I had to find a way to return.

                      Why the Owner Chose Puerto Viejo:
                      I purchased the Cocoa Hill property in 2006, and completed the first home the following year, I have built 4 others at Cocoa Hill and have maintained the Caribbean architectural style. I wanted a property that was close enough to the beach, the grocery store and restaurants to walk or ride my bike.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Cocoa Hill was a former cacao plantation, and there are still many cacao trees on the property along with many other massive grand-father hardwoods.
