Casa Zorro Guest House is your home away from home. This spacious house provides you with two nicely appointed bedrooms, each with a private bath.

The adjacent bathroom also has hot water in the shower. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, utensils, and cookware that you need to prepare anything from a simple breakfast to a gourmet dinner. You’ll also find a full sized range and oven, microwave, coffee maker, blender, slow cooker, and toaster. The living room is large and comfortable with two sofas. You'll spend a lot of time outside on the veranda watching the local wildlife, enjoying your favorite beverage, or just relaxing in the Adirondack chairs with a good book. Local telephone service is included, and wi-fi Internet access is provided at no additional charge.
Casa Zorro is located in Puerto Viejo, so you are only a hundred meters from the beach and two blocks from the great restaurants and nightlife of this quaint village. Just to the north is the popular town of Cahuita, including Cahuita National Park. And just to the south are the towns of Playa Cocles, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, and Manzanillo where you will find Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. Miles of unspoiled beach await you.
There is so much to see and do in Costa Rica’s “forgotten” Atlantic coast. Whether an organized half or full day guided tour or an adventure on your own, Puerto Viejo offers a wide variety of local area tours and attractions. Whether it is walking along the beach, hiking through the jungle, surfing, snorkeling, swimming, white-water rafting, tours of butterfly and botanical gardens, wildlife sanctuaries, or just taking in the sun on the secluded and pristine beaches, you will surely find something for you.

About the owner: My very first trip to Costa Rica was on a cruise. The port of call was Limon, and I was so impressed, I thought if I ever retire, Costa Rica would be the place I'd want to call home. When I finally did retire, I moved to Costa Rica and fell in love with the Caribbean coast. I purchased land in Puerto Viejo and eventually built Casa del Zorro. I hope you love the area, and enjoy my home, which I happily share with you.
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Viejo: The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is so rich in diversity with miles of unspoiled and uncrowded beaches. While certainly not remote and isolated, it is refreshing to visit a coastline that is unmarred with high-rise hotels and all-inclusive resorts. The area is stunningly beautiful, and the people are very friendly and helpful.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Staying in a private home is so much better than checking into a hotel that you may not be familiar with. And the house is so close to the beach as well as to the stores, restaurants, and shops. It is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the center of town. The owner lives in Costa Rica and the property is professionally managed, providing you with the best service possible.
