As Uvita is located in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica, known for it’s rainforests and jungle terrain, you may encounter a rain shower or thunderstorm outside of the dry season.

Access to this property is along a beautiful jungle road. (It does have a couple of steep sections to it and requires an SUV or 4WD. Ask us about a 20% discount on vehicle rentals that we can arrange for our guests.) Occasional sightings of sloths, Capuchan monkeys, Howler monkeys, jagarundi's, toucans, aricari's and parrots can be taken in along the drive to the house - bound to enhance your Costa Rican adventure!
There is much to do in and around Uvita - Visit Ballena Marine Park and take a walk out to the Whale's Tail during low tide. Plan a horseback ride on the beach and to local waterfalls with La Merced.

About the owner: Living in Vancouver, BC - every winter we escaped the rain and cold. In 1993 (our first trip to Costa Rica) we knew that someday - Costa Rica would become our future.... After many returning vacations, we discovered Uvita...and fell in love! ... with the local Tico community and their passion and determination to retain the lush and protected coastline. The beauty, the untouched coastline, the waterfalls and the animals. Pura vida!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We know that there are many other rentals to choose from. The beachside rentals are luring and are great if you want the beach holiday of heading out on the surf board 12 hours a day! The area is crowded and much of the wildlife is scared away, plenty of bugs, humidity and heat.
The benefits of Bambu are that it is located on the hillside, where the air circulates with cooling tropical breezes, very few insects, rarely a mosquito and you are away from the noise of the coastal the highway.
The property is 1.5 acres, with many fruit trees and tropical plants. Mandarinas, bananas, plantains, pineapples, avocados, plus many palms, heliconias, hibiscus, and tropicals.
There are many areas to walk around the neighbourhood - to enjoy the howler monkeys and capuchan monkeys. There are so many birds to take note of and observe from our property and as you walk around the hillside.
