Car: Recommended

The southern Carribean coast of magnificent Costa Rica offers a stunning rainforest and beach setting, and vibrant local culture. It's different from the country's Pacific coast. The smaller scale of development means a fuller experience of the surrounding jungle. This means wildlife: charismatic animals (like sloths, monkeys, tucans, iguanas, etc.) as well as a great variety of exotic insects. It will be a test for any squeamish visitors. That said, with our combination of riverside jungle and our location in the unique town of Cocles, few guests have left us complaining about the bugs. Amenities within walking distance include restaurants, cafes, bars, a spa, a long, beautiful beach. With a car you can further explore the area, like national parks near the historical town of Cahuita; the rugged natural reserve at the end of the road in Manzanillo; the kekoldi reserve for the Bribri indiginous group; numerous botanical gardens, chocolate farms, a chocolate museum(!). There's also world class surf breaks, stunning snorkel and dive spots offshore, and plenty of friendly, laid-back people. Whether you're a return visitor to the region, or planning on your first trip to the right side of Costa Rica, you'll find in Villa Aurora the ideal vacation home.
