What makes this house unique

We Are Unique.

Our beach houses are located 45 meters (50 yards) from the sea! Take in the clean fresh air while you enjoy wandering among the fruit

filled coconut trees on our wide shore. This lovely haven is tranquil and secluded yet only 3.5 km (2 miles) from the center of Puerto Viejo, where

you will find fabulous cuisine and entertaining nightlife. In our cozy cabinas you’ll fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves and awaken to chirping birds, howling monkeys and the sounds of the

tropical jungle. Wildlife surrounds you - iguanas, geckos and lizards, toucans, sloths, monkeys and the famous Blue Morpho butterfly. In the turtle season (summer and fall) huge leatherback turtles lay their eggs right on our beach.

Beautiful tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Galim was amazing. The house was just the perfect size for my husband and I. It was very quaint and relaxing, and you can't beat the view! The huge porch with hammocks over looking the ocean was awesome! We went to sleep listening to the waves and had our coffee on the porch in the morning.

Yosi and Esther were wonderful hosts! They are so friendly and will give you lots of recommendations for your stay in Puerto Viejo. We will be coming back!

Little upkeep

  • 1 of 5

This place needs to be fixed, and cleaned. The mattresses smell, the outside porch leaks , utensils are broken, barbecue was not working,(barbecue is located in owners yard) parking was at neighbors property, WiFi was pretty much non existent. A small supply of cleaning products would be useful.

Wonderful family week by the Caribbean Sea!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids, and I stayed at Casa Galim for a week and had a wonderful time. It is a rustic & comfortable house, perfect for our family. We loved the fact that it was a little out of town (3km from Puerto Viejo) so it was very quiet and private. Our kids spent the week playing on the beach. My husband did some fishing in the creek behind the house. The landlord, Yosi, was very helpful and gave us the information for different activities such as snorkelling in Cahuita. We recommend Casa Galim for anyone who likes to have a quiet time while vacationing on the beach :)

Incredible Beach Side House with wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 6 nights at Casa Galim. It was a really nice space in the house, although we spent more time on the hammocks on the porch. Yosi and Esther were fabulous hosts, and their dog, Motec, kept us company. They recommended a few really good restaurants to us during our stay. The beach was so close, and we had it to ourselves during our stay. The black sand is really beautiful, but wear shoes on your walks. It can heat up quickly! During our stay, we went to the local botanical garden. It was okay and had many local plants. We also went to the Jaguar Rescue Center which is amazing! If you want to see many animals from the area, it is a must. Also, we arranged a zip-line tour in the jungle at the small hotel, Banana Azul, which is just up the road from Casa Galim. The restaurant there is very good, too. Overall, our stay was wonderful! I would recommend Casa Galim to everyone except those folks that like a sterile, luxury hotel type of place. I think those types of places all look the same, and could be anywhere. If you like a unique, quiet, beautiful Costa Rican place that is RIGHT on the beach, go to Casa Galim:) Tell Yosi and Esther that Beth, Barry, Eli and Vada said hello.

Loved Casa Galim!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Casa Galim for our spring break and we absolutely loved it. Our kids (ages 13,11) said it was the best vacation they have ever had. We were very sad to leave. Yosi and Esther are amazing hosts. They are lovely people who go out of their way to help you have a wonderful time. We all loved their sweet dog Motek, who greeted us daily and went on beach walks with us. Yosi and Esther helped us book excursions and even called us taxis since our phones did not work. Casa Galim is secluded and quiet. You will relax to the sound of the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. One day we saw a sloth in the tree right outside the door! There is plenty to do in town (Puerto Viejo) and lots of daily excursions. We did a tour at nearby Cahuita National Park where we saw sloths, monkeys, iguanas, snakes, and more. We did the chocolate tour at Bribri, SUP at Punta Uva, and zip lining. After our adventures we would come back to Casa Galim to relax in the hammocks or on the beach. I cannot say enough good things about it. It really is a special place.

Casa Gali Costa Rican visit

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our stay at the Casa Galim! Our hosts Yosi and Ester were extremely helpful. We had our own beach, went into Puerto Viejo, booked excursions thru Exploration at the Banana Azul.

It is very secluded and the loudest sounds you will hear is the roll of the ocean waves.

We loved our experience.
