We spent two nights in Casa Colibri and had a great time. We are a family of 5 and can't say enough about the hospitality of Jessica and Marc. Not only are they super friendly but they are very willing to do what it takes to take good care of their guests. The location is great--quiet setting but very close to a lovely beach. We live in Costa Rica and will come back for sure. Can't go wrong here.

The hosts and owners really show their care for their livelihood and their guests! However, if you are less of a hotel tourist, you should know, the cheaper bungalows do not have aircon. They do not come with toiletries such as bath soap or shampoo. You will have to ask for wash cloths and there is no storage space to unpack your luggage. But, all you have to do is plan ahead or ask. In this way, we got separate towels for the beach and the washcloths we needed. The breakfast was made to order and was a delicious start to the day! Everyone knew a lot about the surrounding area and was able to guide us as well as rent us bikes to explore. If you don't have a car, you will be walking about 5-15 min to hit various types of eateries. The lovely common area with simple kitchen and beautiful pool give extra space for relaxation. But truly, your hosts make your visit, their kindness and attention is top notch!

Room Tip: Rooms in the Puerto Viejo area are cheapest in the town itself which also has the most and easiest access to eateries. But, the vibe there is 20 something edgy party ville. So, staying further down, like in Cocles is an excellent option.

We're glad we were able to help you with what you needed! We DO listen to our guests and today, we installed shampoo and soap dispensers in the showers of the bungalows. We appreciate all feedback..next for plans...more places to store bags and clothing :) We hope you come back to visit us to see the progress we work hard on every day and thank you so much for your valuable feedback! Pura vida,
Jessica and Marc

Jessica and marc went above and beyond to make our stay amazing and theyvmade you feel like part of the family would highly recommend staying here, so close to beach and lovely restaurants.
The bungalows were lovely and clean. We would love to return in the future.

We stayed at Caribe Town for 4 nights last week and absolutely loved it! Jessica and Marc are SO GREAT. Really, I can't express how wonderful these two are. We felt like family staying there as they were so keen on making sure we had a great trip. I would come back to Puerto Viejo just to stay at Caribe Town and enjoy their hospitality. Jessica booked us a zip lining trip that we decided to go on last minute, and organized all our transportation to and from San Jose. They're so easy-going and truly embody the "Pura Vida" lifestyle on the Caribbean coast. The bungalow was perfect - felt like we were in the middle of the rainforest but had just enough amenities to make us comfortable. The pool was also amazing and was the perfect accompaniment to beers that we could pull from the fridge at anytime. We easily took the bikes into town, or walked to various restaurants and never feared for our safety. The beach right across from the hotel is beautiful and at times we were the only ones on it. Breakfasts were great with excellent home made bread and jam. You MUST stay here if you go to Puerto Viejo!

Room Tip: We liked #4 the best
