Our stay at La Costa de Papito was one of a kind. We arrived on the later side, but were still greeted with delicious watermelon welcome drinks. Our room was the perfect mix of tree house and hotel. It was clean and comfortable. However, we spend most of our time out on the deck and in our hammock! We woke up to jungle noises and howler monkeys all around us and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful landscaping that we had missed in the dark the night before. Breakfast was fresh and delicious every morning. We had the option of fresh juices and fruit, coffee, rice and beans, a daily special and eggs to order each morning. We dined at the restaurant a few nights and this was delicious as well. Definitely be sure to try the blended drinks on the menu; the bartenders do a fantastic job!
We loved the opportunity to "chose your own adventure" at 'Papito. The beach really is 100 yards away so we could spend the day lounging in the sun and playing in the waves. Or, when we wanted something more exciting, the staff was always friendly and ready to help plan any excursions we wanted.
The location of La Costa de Papito is a definite plus as well. We felt like we were far enough out of town that we had some peace and quiet, but close enough to bike anywhere we wanted (highly suggest renting bikes!). The waves at the beach across the street can be a little aggressive, but Punta Uva and other peaceful beach spots are only a short bike down the road.
Overall, we had an absolutely fantastic time in Puerto Viejo and this was made possible by the folks at La Costa de Papito. We did feel as though we were on the younger side of guests staying there (we are both 25), but much of the staff is young or young at heart and were willing to point us in the right direction for a fun time- we are looking at you, Henry! We would recommend this to anyone, couple or family, young or old, looking for a beautiful, clean, friendly, and comfortable vacation spot.
