"I stayed at Samasati from the 3rd through the 12th of August. I stayed at several other properties on Samasati, but the Yucca House is in the most beautiful part of Samasati's property. The best part of this property is that it is a nature retreat. It is a short 4 miles from Puerto Viejo. If you want to have total autonomy, a 4x4 vehicle is necessary because it is a steep gravel road to the top of a secluded jungle mountain. With that being said, you are totally immersed in the sounds and fresh aromas of the Costa Rican Jungle. The birds, flowers, and butterflies are absolutely breathtaking. If you want to see jungle life from your front porch, the Yucca House at Samasati is the place to stay. You hear the roar of howler monkeys every morning, and you might even get lucky enough to see Capuchin monkeys coming down from the trees. The bird life is incredible. Toucans are sighted every single day, and beautiful green parrots are camouflaged in the trees but can easily be seen with a pair of binoculars. The morphos butterflies come through this area often, but are nearly impossible to get a good picture of unless you have a camera with a fast shutter speed that can take multiple photographs per second to capture the erratic movement of this elusive butterfly. The yoga classes are some of the best I’ve ever attended. Max, the resident yoga instructor is tremendously talented. He is a German gentleman who is one of the original founders of Samasati. He’s been practicing yoga for over 30 years, and he is incredibly knowledgeable about yoga. His classes are fun, and accessible to all. He will modify each yoga session for his students, and he makes each yoga session deeply enjoyable for each student. Yoga and nature are great reasons to visit this scenic nature retreat. Beautiful hiking trails run throughout Samasati. The jungle is beautiful at any time of year. I was there during the rainy season, and the heavy rain was one of the most breathtaking experiences I’ve ever had. The views of the fog over the trees are incredible. Because you are staying on the mountaintop in the jungle, the view of the ocean is incredibly beautiful on clear days. But nothing can beat the sound of the rain on the tin rooftops and the sightings of all of the colorful jungle frogs. The vegetarian restaurant that is walking distance from this property is tremendous. Customer service at the resort was amazing."Guest: Eliza E.

"We rented this house for 3 adults and 4 children under 10 years. The house was beautiful, well cared for, and the gardens were very nice. The setting was very peaceful and relaxing. There were screens and the insects did not get in. The pool was very clean and kept up well. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with a huge refrigerator and freezer. There was plenty of room for the children to run around and play. Lorenzo and Ramon were very friendly and helpful, and the owners of the property were very responsive and helpful via email to set up the reservation. We had a car so it was easy to get to the location, and it was very fast to get to Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. Our only complaints were minor: that we had one adult who slept on the top bunk downstairs. She said the bars of the bunk could be felt under the mattress and that the floorboards above squeaked loudly every time someone walked around. The noise didn't wake the kids up at all! She switched beds to get a better night's sleep. The other thing was that the highway was loud at times. We would absolutely rent this house again!"Guest: hleuszler Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 27, 2014View listing
"I stayed at Cielomar for 5 nights with my wife and three children 12, 14 & 17. This was my families third trip to CR so we kind of know what to expect but this property was truly more than we expected. This is a beautiful house that puts you up close and personal with the CR jungle and the animals that live there. Very eco-friendly with a rainwater recycling system that fills the pool and provides all water for drinking and bathing....very cool. If this is what you are looking for I don't think there is a better place to stay. The monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots, bugs, geckos and poison dart frogs (all seen daily) were very, very cool. I read one review that pointed out some of the short comings of the property and another that described it as kind of like "camping" so we went in with eyes wide open. I will agree that some of the items in these reviews have merit but there are far more positives than negatives. If you love nature and adventure then this is the place for you. I would add that I didn't use bug spray at the house once and never got a single bite (not true on the beach though). We saw very few bugs in the house. If you want to be pampered then you should be in an all inclusive in Cancun anyway (although they have bugs too). When reading VRBO reviews I'm always trying to pick out the practical information. Here are some practical items. The location is great along the coast and close (walking distance) to the best beaches, groceries and restaurants. You must have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to make it up the hill/driveway and walking the 1/2 mile or so to the main road is a workout due to the hill. The temp was always comfortable and the pool gets plenty of sun between 10 and 3. There are only two bedrooms that offer privacy but there are plenty of places to sleep inside. The upper level and back porch have beds but they are very much "open air". There is internet access for a laptop but cell phones/ipads require a trip to one of the many restaurants that have WiFi. The closest one is about 100 feet south along the main road by the Playa Chiquita stables. The surf was too rough for snorkeling off the beach while we were there but if it had been a calmer there would have been good snorkeling. Security was never a concern, there is a large safe that we could lock cash and electronics in. Jeff the caretaker was up early cleaning the pool and was very friendly and helpful. We loved it and hope to return!"Guest: paul h. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 3, 2014View listing
"We spent 9 nights in Casa Bromelia and absolutely loved it! The entire property is beautiful. It was really incredible sharing the rainforest with howler monkeys and toucans. The owners, Tom and Zoe are great people. They were amazing hosts and really made every effort to make our stay a memorable one. Thanks to Jose and Tita who did a great job keeping the place clean. An awesome place in a really beautiful part of the country."Guest: scoots Date of Stay: March 2013 Review Submitted: April 16, 2013View listing
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.
