We are looking for a hotel, villa, bugalow or casa near Puerto Viejo that has safe parking, pool and a/c .

Also does anyone know if the bank in town is open and what are the hours to exchange currency.

You have a tall order for Puerto Viejo. Pools and AC are not the order of the day down here. Please remember, that this area is very much lessed developed than Pacific. They got electricity in 86 and phones in 96.

And contrary to public opinion, does not get as hot as Pacific and there is not the same need for AC. If all these needs are very important to you, I think you would be best to examine staying on Pacific side. The selection and quality of hotels is much better.

Puerto Viejo offers a much more "natural experience" and it many of the locals hope that it will remain this way for as long as possible.

Yes, Bank (the onely one) is open every day at 9am till 4pm) and currency exchange is open 7 days a week morning till night.

we stayed at aguas claras in a cottage. they have a few on their property. no a/c, but there is really no need for it there. there is a security guard 24/7 on property. all cottages have their own parking space. the beach was about 300 meters away from the cottages.
