  • Great home base

    "This home is a quiet relaxing getaway. Walk to the beach or the village or just spend the day at home scanning the trees for wildlife. The property description is quite accurate. Be aware that it is a mix of "modern" and traditional Caribean building styles. The upstairs level is open air leading to the stairwell and downstairs. The two upstairs bedrooms are self enclosed and screened. We were nervous that the open construction would lead to mosquitos etc but we had no issues with them in the house at all. Each upstairs bedroom is it's own screened-in room with the bathroom connecting the two. The house is spacious. The property is like being in the forest. Huge beautiful old growth trees, crabs and lizards aplenty and the sounds of parrots and howler monkeys will greet you each morning. A car is recommended. While you can easily walk to Manzillo village the other towns and acitivites are bit too far to walk (45 mintues or so to the closest one) many people rent bikes but be aware that the road is hilly, potholed and narrow. HIGHLY recommend Omar with Bucus tours for guided hikes in the Gandoca forest. It is walking distance but aside from the coastline walking trail not advisable to go into the forest without a guide. There are no signs, no marked trails and it would be very easy to get lost. Not too mention the number of bullet ants and pit viper snakes that abound in the woods. We probably wouldn't have found them without a guide but would hate to have discovered them by "accident". Omar is a very personable, eagle eyed local with formal guide training. He can also take you on a great kayak paddle of the lagoon."

  • Jungle Paradise

    "I travelled to Playa Chiquita with my husband, 2 children (9 and 12) and parents. We rented the main house at Casa Bella with my immediate family on the main and my parents in the studio above. This proved to be excellent accommodations with everyone having more than adequate space and privacy. The house is a gem - the sliding doors on the main open completely to create an indoor/outdoor living space that is spectacular. The hammock chair on the corner of the deck is a prime spot for relaxation and bird/sloth/monkey spotting. There is no end to the amenities that Playa Chiquita and surrounding area has to offer. We divided our time between relaxing on the deck or local beaches and seeking adventure - river kayaking, chocolate plantation tour, surf lessons, horseback riding on the beach. The chocolate facial at Pure Jungle Spa was a highlight for my daughter's birthday. We didn't expect our vacation to Costa Rica to include exceptional cuisine - we were thrilled by the local selection. Pita Bonita, Pura Gula, Jungle Love - all a short walk away - offered a range of options for every palate. The local grocery store offered great selection along with fresh croissants and pain au chocolat baked daily by the owner. Playa Chiquita is a wonderful community full of friendly locals. Casa Bella hosts Erinn and Darren were gracious and exceeding helpful. I certainly recommend this property to family and friends and hope to return."

  • Rainforest retreat in a fascinating area

    "We loved our stay at La Patita. The house is amazing---open to the lush rainforest, yet kind of cozy and funky-- like living in a treehouse. We could lie in a hammock on the deck and spot sloths, howler monkeys, and toucans. Our hike through the Refuge with Omar was a highlight. He was a great guide--a font of knowledge on all things local. William, the caretaker was also friendly and accommodating. China, (a cook who lives in Manzanillo) came to La Patita to prepare a dinner for us one night. She is a native English speaker like all the older folks in the area, many of whom are descendants of workers who came from Jamaica to build the railroad, and work in the banana plantations. Fascinating history of this place. We loved hanging out and walking on the gorgeous beaches. Just be sure to find out where the rip tides make swimming dangerous. Good food to be had at Cool and Calm Cafe. Thank you, Sita for helping us get in touch with China and with Omar. Meeting local people made our fantastic week even better!"

  • Lovely house in great location

    "Our party of 4 adults stayed at the Bird House in November. The house is beautifully built and well maintained, as is the rest of the property. It's also in a great location, not right in town but close enough to it so that getting there was easy. We rented bikes which was wonderful and ate breakfast in town every morning. The only reason I gave this property 4 starts instead of 5 was for 2 things that were a bummer. First, there wasn't hot water in the showers. My husband, son, and brother-in-law didn't care at all about the lack of hot water; but I did. Second, there weren't any beach towels provided. After discovering this we went into town to buy some which was an unexpected expense that was disappointing. But overall, it was a great vacation in Puerto Viejo at a great house near great beaches and great restaurants!"

Limon Travel Tips

The Less Traveled Part of Costa Rica Found in Limon Beach Rentals

The Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is a beach-lover’s dream and that is where you will find Limon beach resorts. The Limon region is set apart from the rest of the country, so it offers something completely different to visitors since it is the least traveled. Spanning 125 miles, it is almost always hot and humid. Vacations in Costa Rica to the Limon province allow you to experience the country as many people typically do not. Boasting prehistoric rainforests, white sandy beaches, and unique wildlife, Limon resorts offer you one of the most memorable vacations ever.

Limon Vacations in Costa Rica Are Like No Other

If you are interested in vacations in Costa Rica, you should not miss the Limon province. Booking Limon resorts may be easier than other regions of the country as this is a far less traveled area. Situated just a short drive from San Jose, Limon was once a major banana port and is known to be the melting pot of the country. During Carnivale, the city turns into party central and is definitely something to experience.

If You Love Nature, You Will Love Limon Resorts

Taking vacations in Costa Rica allows you to see one of the more lush countries in the world. The rainforest is not the only reason to explore the Limon region. The coast is rich in wildlife as well and some of the best scuba diving opportunities await you just outside your Limon beach rentals. Home to several national parks, Limon boasts Tortuguero National Park and Cahuita National Park, Limon. Both offer an array of wildlife viewing and the latter is also the home to the last indigenous tribes of the country--the Cocles, Bribri, and Talamanca Cabecarv.

Set Your Sights on the Sloth near Limon Beach Rentals

If you need a small break from the day-to-day bustle of the city and beach near your Limon beach rentals, one of the best ways to break the cycle is to head over to Vargas Park. The park is not too far from most Limon resorts. Go ahead and grab a seat near the drooping seawall and keep your eyes open for some sloth. These slow creatures stay pretty well camouflaged and move incredibly slowly but love to hang out at this park. And when you are not sloth-spotting, try some local fare and shopping. It will be one of your most memorable vacations in Costa Rica yet.
