Beachfront Punta Uva - where the Jungle meets the Beach !

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
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...

Best Caribbean Restaurant is a 5 minute walk away 'Selvin'
Supermarket 800 meters
Bus Stop 200m
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
