Punta Uva, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Province of Limon
We hope you feel inspired while staying in our recently-renovated beachfront home, Casa de la Musa (House of the Muse), directly on the spectacular beach of Punta Uva. This is the home where famous Costa Rican author, Anacristina Rossi, lived for nearly 15 years and wrote stories about the life and beauty of the Caribbean coast. Her works include 'La Loca de Gandoca,” which, after its release in 1992, helped save the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge from development (her books are available to read in English and Spanish at the house). While sitting in the home’s breezy deck and looking through the magnificent jungle gardens towards the gorgeous Punta Uva beach, you can easily imagine how Rossi felt inspired to write about this Costa Rican paradise.

Casa de la Musa is a clean, recently-restored Caribbean-style cabin with 2 bedrooms...

Casa del la Musa has a great location with the beach access direct from the property and is also handily located close to Selvin Restaurant and easy walking to the local mini mart.

it was amazing to be staying right there on this beautiful beach. The soft early morning sun was great for enjoying breakfast and sunbathing. The forest meets the beach, creating a nice area of shade during the peak heat of the day and places to hang your hammock if you bring one. The beach in front of the house has...

Lovely rental house with an interesting back story and the most idyllic position you can find on this coast. Right on the beach (15M) with a beautiful array of wildlife surrounding you. You even get your own sloth in the garden who strolls right past you without a care. Carlos and Yolanda live next door and look after the house...

Getting around
You can move around easlily by bicycle during the day - to explore nearby beaches like Playa Chiquita, Cocles or ride even to Puerto Viejo which is about 7 km. The roads are in good condition and flat.

A car is nice to have if you come with kids or you want to explore further to the National parks of Cahuita or the Wildlife Refugee of Gandoca/ Manzanillo
or if it rains and in the night we do not recomend to ride the bike.

But you can always call a inexpensive Taxi or a TukTuk.

Public transportation is available - just 200m from the house stops the bus every 2 hours and takes you to Puerto Viejo, Cahuita, Manzanillo, Limon and San Jose.
Car not needed
