Just spent 5 nights at Coral Hill bungalows and had an amazing time. Joe & Chris were very hospitable, gave great advice about places to go and excursions to take and even booked trips for us. Breakfast was constantly beautifully presented fantastic tasty fresh fruit and bread with jam. Also ask for Joe's home made banana pancakes! Alternatives were also available by request. The location (2 mins from playa negra) and beautiful wooden bungalows were really fantastic and we would love to stay again sometime in the future.
Only negative we can think of was that the wifi was a bit patchy (probably down to Cahuita's remoteness).
I'd ignore the negative reviews about bugs in the bedroom, yes there's the occasional large grass hopper but they're harmless and part and parcel of enjoy the extraordinary environment that Costa Rica provides. Man up or get under the mosquito net provided. Bungalows were spotlessly cleaned every day.
Would recommend walks through the national park, snorkelling trips to the reefs, river canoe trip with Jose, and a trip to Jaguar sanctuary to cuddle a baby monkey!
If you're looking to surf don't pick October though as was flat as banana pancake. Perfect for snorkelling though as visibility great.
Cute 6 month old German Shepard called Rocky too!
