Things To Do
The Town Of Puerto Viejo De Talamanca
We find this blog describes it best: 'Puerto Viejo is an awesome, laidback, Caribbean, Euro-backpacker, Rasta-surfer town on the south Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. This tiny little town offers up an amazing variety of international culinary flavors as well as a wide variety of experiences to choose from. You can surf the world famous Salsa Brava, relax in the natural rock tide pools at the edge of the ocean, party the night away downtown, or unwind in a secluded jungle bungalow!'
IN THE AREA
One of the best places to snorkel is Cahuita National park which has the largest coral reef in South Central America. There are lots of tour options that combine a boat ride to the reef followed by hiking in the rain forest. When we snorkeled we saw lots of colorful fish, a stingray and even a small tiburon (shark) sleeping at the bottom of the ocean!
The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica offers over 50 miles of pristine coral reef to explore, extending from Puerto Viejo to the Panama border. There are two dozen fixed diving sites that range from low depth to several hundred feet deep!
The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is well known for its world class surfing. The famous Salsa Brava waves are near Puerto Viejo. These are thick Hawaiian style waves that build in deep water and break over a shallow reef.
This is another fun outdoor excursion to do in the area with lovely cliffs and caves to explore along the coast. Many tours also combine the experience with a hike in the rain forest.
Explore beaches on the back of a lovely horse with the help of a guide.
A typical experience to make when in Costa Rica is to zip-line through the rain forest getting a birds-eye view of the flora and the fauna that lives in the tree tops while getting an adrenaline rush!
Cahuita National Park
One of the most beautiful national parks which extends for several miles along the coast just north of Puerto Viejo. Beyond the breathtaking beaches here you will see lots of wildlife from howler monkeys to sloths and racoon. You can explore the park on your own or take a guided tour.
Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge and Turtle Watching
This amazing ecological treasure is one of the primary sites for the nesting of leatherback turtles. It offers also spectacular beaches and a wide ecological diversity.
Jaguar Animal Rescue Center
This is a wonderful way to experience the local wildlife up close and learn about them from some very dedicated and knowledgeable volunteer guides. The best part for us is interacting with baby monkeys and seeing the sloths up close!
Kekoldi Indigenous Reserve
'The Kekoldi people were once part of the Bribri indigenous tribe, but formed their own, separate group years ago. Today, they live at the base of the Talamanca Mountains, in a reserve that is known for migrating birds of prey, green iguana protection efforts, medicinal herb gardens and beautiful handmade crafts'
Cocoa trees are indigenous to the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. You can find a few of them in our very own garden at Casitas las Flores! This tour will give a chance to learn and enjoy one of nature's greatest gifts!
A BIT FURTHER AFIELD
Tortuguero National Park
Despite its remote location (about 3 hours of scenic boat ride from Limon) this is the third most visited park in Costa Rica for its amazing biodiversity. You can experience toucans, spider and howler monkeys, the majestic morpho butterfly, the basilisk lizards and so much more in their natural habitat. You'll be taken by boat through the delta of the river running through the park by a local guide who will amaze you with their ability to spot animals and repeat bird calling sounds!
Pacuare Whitewater Rafting
About a one hour drive from Puerto Viejo you can experience whitewater rafting in the pristine waters of the Pacuare river. The river is located in a natural gorge and offers an exciting ride while being up close to waterfalls, the virgin tropical rain forest and colorful tropical birds flying above you.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Vittorio, an Italian citizen, is a chemist by trade who worked as a lab technician in Italy for two decades. In fact, he analyzed the water from our well and says it's chemically good, hard water! He loves traveling, reading, and nature. In 2013 Vittorio went on holiday in Costa Rica and fell in love with the country and in particular with the Caribbean coast. By the time he was on the plane heading home he had incorporated a company, bought a piece of land and contracted with a local builder to begin construction of a few bungalows. He quit his positions in Europe in the summer of 2014 to move to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and begin his dream job: Casitas Las Flores! Vittorio manages the property with Joe and Shevonne, a Canadian couple who moved to Puerto Viejo with their house cat Archer in 2014. Joe is a photographer by trade and Shevonne has her own online business. They love managing Casitas Las Flores and will always do everything they can to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica:
At Casitas Las Flores we offer our guests an opportunity to disconnect from the rapid pace of modern day life so they can relax and immerse in nature. Vittorio, Joe and Shevonne have lived hectic lives before moving here and know the importance of being able to recharge. Come join us for some rest and relaxation and enjoy Pura Vida!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
We are just 1 km from the center of town but we are located at the end of a quiet road confined by a gentle stream and a botanical reserve. Our lush flower garden is often visited by sloths, butterflies and birds of all kinds and it is a wonderful place to just lay on a hammock and let time gently slide by.
