What a great place this is and I can't wait to go back! If only I'd found this place sooner I'd have spent my entire vacation here. My travelling companion and I spent 4 days here and enjoyed every minute of it. He wanted to keep busy and I wanted to relax so we got the best of both worlds. We had air conditioning, cable tv and a fully equipped kitchen for the days we wanted to cook. The hammock in the outdoor kitchen area was a nice place to stay cool and enjoy a refreshment or nap in the shade after lunch on a hot afternoon. One night there was rain and it was very cozy looking out into the torrent and hearing the downpour on the roof. Watch out you don't step on one of the local crabs who wander around at night looking for others of their kind :) They're harmless unless you're in your bare feet.

The beach is right across the street and it's a short walk to all the stores and resturants of Puerta Viejo de Talamanca . The laid back atmosphere makes it hard to feel rushed....perfect for lazy days and warm evenings sipping cervesas overlooking the ocean breaking on the coral reef offshore. Everyone seems to rent bicycles in town and take leisurly rides to the local beaches and exploring or shopping around town.

The price, location and value of the Exotica Lodge were all fantastic. The managers, Agnes and Lorenzo were so helpful and friendly, they made our stay memorable. Thanks for the invitation to join the gathering of world travellers and share an evening of conversation, good food and great spirits in such amazing surroundings. Agnes, it was nice to see a fellow Canadian enjoying time in Costa Rica! Hope to see you and Lorenzo again soon.

My husband and I came to Puerto Viejo and stayed @ Exotica Lodge for a total of 22 days. we left in the middle of that trip to visit Arenal and decided to return to Exotica we loved the accomadations and town so very much. Our room had our very own kitchen with everything we could need to make our own meals. The hammock in the large kitchen/eating area was a lovely addition. Our room was very large with high ceilings, air conditioning and cable TV. We even enjoyed the bathroom which was very large and clean. Sitting in the outdoor part of our cabina was a true joy. The jungle was right there; three toad tree sloth with baby, iguanas, frogs, hummingbirds, butterflies and more. A beautiful comfortable and clean property. If you chose to meet other visitors you could, however if you wanted quiet time that was possible as well. We will be back to Exotica Lodge the next time we visit Puerto Viejo. Not only were we greated with open friendly arms by the Management; Lorenzo and Agnus they became true friends of ours. Lorenzo and Agnus will go out of there way with directions, suggestions or just a chat at the gazebo. You'll want to stay at Exotica Lodge!!!!
