“The place to stay in Cahuita!”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 via mobile

We are moved here from secret garden and we loved it! The room was really big and the shared balcony is the best thing about it. It has a view over the entrance to the park and we liked to just there and watch people :-) we paid 23 us dollars per night for two people. Only downside is that it doesn't have any kitchen at all.

Reviewed 14 January 2013

We were meant to stay at Sol y Mar for 1 night but stayed 4.

Sol y Mar is run by the family of Walter Ferguson, a famous Costa Rican Calypso musician.

We loved it here, it felt like we got a real taste of life on the Carribbean coast rather than a bland tourist experience. The family are of Jamaican descent but have been well established in Cahuita for many years. Walter himself is in his 90's now but is usually sitting watching the world go by in the restaurant downstairs and welcomes coversation. Two of his daughters mainly run the hotel and are really lovely.

The rooms are large, bright, clean and value for money. We especially liked the sweeping balcony running alongside where we could sit with a beer in the shade watching the goings on the street and on the beach/park entrance, but because you were on the 1st floor no one could see us!

Location is excellent, right opposite the beach and the entrance to the national park. Felt very safe.

Restaurant downstairs serves substantial breakfasts.

We moved here from Secret Garden hostel which was ok but dirty kitchen with a dark room for same price.

Business is slow in Cahuita. When you stay here you are supporting a large extended local family. Recommend!
