Coolest Place in CR

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, unique property, just a short drive, bike or walk from the beaches of Puerto Viejo. Even better than the pictures- our only regret was that we could not stay more nights. Besides being interesting and beautiful ascetically, the Dome Home has all the amenities we needed, including a full kitchen, and a complimentary bottle of wine. John lives on property and couldn't have been more helpful- offering dinner/drink recommendations, as well as insight into the plants around the dome. Covered area on the top of the dome was the perfect place to drink your morning coffee and spot plenty of wildlife. Highly, highly recommend this very unique property, which was so fun, it was hard to leave to explore the area!

Unique jungle experience!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for somewhere that's a little different, unique or special, this is the place for you!

Great location, comfortable and clean. Exactly like the photos. Close enough to walk to all restaurants and bars yet far enough away to feel like you are secluded in the jungle. One of the best things about staying here is all the nature and animals right at your door step. We had a sloth in the garden on day one!

John and Eric were lovely hosts. They shared lots of local knowledge on where to go and also helped us book some of the activities!

We highly recommend Casa Corazon Del Mar and we can't wait to some back again.

Thanks for having us :)

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The pictures don't do this adorable "dome" justice. We loved how secluded it was but yet so close to town. John and Eric were wonderful! If we needed anything they always had the answer. We can't wait to go back again! I would highly recommend anyone that loves nature and the outdoors to stay here. You will see plenty of wildlife. My favorite place quickly became the hammock in the look out area. Such a beautiful view! I don't think you will find better accommodations in Puerto Viejo. If you're trying to decide whether to make reservations here, stop deciding and do it! You will not be disappointed.

Amazing unique property with lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights at the end of a very long trekking vacation this summer and it was perfect. The property is just like the pictures and if you love nature you will love staying here. I loved reading in the circle windows and relaxing near the pool. Eric was a great friendly host as well, to making sure we had what we needed, to checking reservations and calling us a cab. We really appreciated his kindness and all he did to help us out. The only thing I would tell people is that you are a bit of a distance from the main town( still very walkable) and if you want to go past the town up the coast to other beaches or the JC rescue center you will need to rent bikes or a car. But none of that was a problem. We rented bikes for three days in town and it worked out well for us to get around. And at the end of the day it was great to still feel like we were in nature being slightly removed from the town because to us that is one of the biggest draws of Costa Rica. Plus when will you ever see or stay in such a unique space as this! We would absolutely come back if given the chance in the future!

Hands down coolest place we have ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently stayed Corazon Del Mar and it was hands down the coolest place we have ever stayed. The house itself is Adobe-styled and very unique. It is situated close to Puerto Viejo but set back from the road so it was very quiet and you have the opportunity to see lots of wildlife. In fact, we saw a couple of baby sloths and monkeys very close to the house. Eric was extremely hospitable and helpful. He even called our shuttle to ensure they knew where to pick us up. I would highly recommend this place and hope that I get the opportunity to return. Thanks Eric and John!
