Really lovely place to stay! Chilled and welcoming vibe. Great location in the jungle with loads of amazing wildlife and beautiful nature but still nice and close to the centre of town!

Thanks for having us!

Perfect location. Away from the dancehall and broken mufflers but close enough to head into town for some munchies no troubles. When you try and find the place, go to the gustibus bakery (sooo goooddd) and follow that road all the way up. Laura and Merie have been great fun and help you out with their local connections. The rooms have everything you need. PLUS FREE COFFEE and COOKIES!!!!!!! Loved it so much that i stayed for many months and invited friends to come stay too. People talking about the place being "basic"... your in Costa Rica in a freaking Jungle. Peace xx

We arrived and planned on staying for one month...... five months later and we haven't managed to leave yet. We can't see what more you could want. Amazing views of the jungle, monkey and sloths. Our own private porch with hammocks and seats with a trunk for eating at. It is in the jungle so you can't expect it to be spotless- always bugs everywhere but that is all part of it. Laura provides different things to eat and oil for cooking with.. and a very well equipped kitchen. Very clean when we arrived and Laura who is the owner has become a good friend. Very friendly she also speaks very good english which is helpful!! The place is very close to town and to all the different beaches so is in perfect location!!!! Would recommend! Thank you Laura... We will have to return again at some point in the future!

“Very Basic”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

By no means is this the best place but I think it's fair to say that in terms of price versus standard it's about right. If you've travelled India on a budget expect that kind of thing. It's clean but a very run down and basic.

It has a kitchen area you could use if it was functional, hygienic and you were brave enough.

Staff are friendly thou.

“el broche perfecto a nuestras vacaciones¡¡”

My friends and me stayed in El Faro 13 for 2 nights and we considered as the perfect place for closing our vacations in Costa Rica. We felt very confortable in the room, who was very clean, and also very thankful for the hot water!! If you are looking for a quiet place for your stay and you'd like to feel as you are sleeping inside the jungle...this is your place!!. Additionally, the owner Laura was extremely nice and helped us to arrange a perfect 1-day tour in Puerto viejo.

I enjoyed staying 1 month at El Faro 13, it was a quiet place between large trees just 5 mins walk from the beach, or 10 mins into town. The Wifi was fast enough for me to work online, there is a shared kitchen and large fridge and Laura is a great host!
