The cabins are roomy, have great windows to enjoy the view of wildlife, contain 2 double beds, and have large fans to keep cool. No AC, but it is easier to acclimate to the tropical temps without it. Very large tiled showers as well. Rooms are freshly painted with bright happy colors of the sky at sunset. Costa Marina Restaurante is directly below, so there are wonderful aromas wafting up begging you to eat. A very short walk down to the playa (beach) where you will meet the local friendly dogs and see many varieties of birds and flowers. Lots of shade under Palm and Almond trees, or you can explore the wide clean dark-sand shores. Gentle rolling waves are known for at this beach, perfect to learn to surf, with very little worry of undertow. A wonderful gorgeous relaxing vacation in all.
Scot and Kristie are great hosts and are more than helpful. Free Wi-Fi is provided as well if you need connectivity.
Uvita is a small safe friendly coastal city, close to waterfalls, mountains, beach caves, and larger cities like San Isidro, Quepos, and Dominical.
