The SpacePlaya Chiquita is an idyllic beach village, ideally situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. This quaint location could not be more convenient for travellers, whether bound for an eye opening experience of nature, wildlife, culture or just pure relaxation. The village is located on the edge of the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, a protected nature reserve which is home to numerous species of animals, birds and plants. It is also only 4 miles/ 6km South of the happening town of Puerto Viejo, the epitome of a laid back Caribbean place, a melting pot of cultures and a great place for contracting tourist services. At Casas La Selvatica we offer two comfortable homes, immersed in nature and surrounded by wildlife, yet only minutes away from a lovely beach, good grocery store and restaurants. The setting is ideal for couples or families wishing for more than a hotel room within easy reach of countless low ecological impact recreational activities (wildlife watching, coral reef snorkelling and scuba diving, jungle zip-line treks, river rafting, etc.). Our property and the surrounding area are home to an incredible array of wildlife: you will most likely watch howler monkeys in their search for food, toucans or sloths, right from the comfort of your porch. The house is located minutes away from a couple of the best surfing beaches in the Caribbean. Your bilingual host is available to assist with information about the area, bookings for activities/tours and offer detailed attention to your comfort throughout your vacation. Casa Grande has two bedrooms, one bath and two dens, comfortably accommodating up to five people. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a large outdoor dining area. If you seek serenity, while enjoying the convenience of a picture perfect beach and services within a few minutes walk, this is the place for you. We proudly offer the following, along with your accommodation: - wireless high speed internet - on site English/Spanish speaking host available to provide information, assist with activities booking, etc. - coffeemaker, blender and kettle - safe for secure storage of your valuables - high quality towels and bedding - complimentary laundry service provided by our caretakers for vacations of minimum 7 days; for shorter vacations, the service is available for $5/load (washing, drying and folding) - hammocks on the porch - use of cell phone with a calling card for international calls available at nearby grocery store - bike rentals available at nearby grocery store (3 min walk away). We would love to customize your vacation according to your needs. If you are celebrating a special occasion or would like to pleasantly surprise a loved one, we can provide additional services as required (tea lights, bottle of wine, local handmade organic chocolate, etc.) or arrange for a romantic dinner or spa package before your arrival. Thank you for considering Casas La Selvatica and the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica as your potential vacation destination. You will discover a fascinating country, with amazing nature and wildlife, a vibrant culture and will get re-connected with the meaning of pure life. Please review the terms and conditions listed under "House Rules" and kindly let us know if you have any questions. By submitting a reservation request and payment, the renter acknowledges review and agreement to the terms listed under "House Rules". Guest AccessFull house, not shared. Interaction with GuestsThis is a self-contained home located on a property which hosts another vacation rental home as well as a caretaker suite. Guests enjoy full privacy. The Host is present at check-in, check-out and visits daily for assistance and information. The NeighborhoodPlaya Chiquita is an idyllic beach village, ideally situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. This quaint location could not be more convenient for travelers, whether bound for an eye opening experience of nature, wildlife, culture or just pure relaxation. The village is located on the edge of the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, a protected nature reserve which is home to numerous species of animals, birds and plants. It is also only 4 miles/6km South of the happening town of Puerto Viejo, the epitome of a laid back Caribbean place, a melting pot of cultures and a great place for contracting tourist services. Getting AroundA rental car is not necessary, but if preferred, an outdoor parking lot is available. Public transit is readily accessible: direct buses from San Jose, Limon, Puerto Viejo, Cahuita and Manzanillo stop 3 minutes walk from the house. Taxis are abundant in the area. Bikes are a great way to get around, and are available for rent at the El Duende Grocery store (3 min walk from the house) or Monkey Rental (4 min walk). Other Things to NoteFrequently Asked Questions: 1. What is this area like? As most travel guides describe it, the Southern Caribbean is the right combination of picture perfect beaches, spectacular wildlife and proverbial laid-back attitude, spiced-up with a surprisingly active music and restaurant scene. The area is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, offering countless low ecological impact activities. This part of the country enjoys a lower level of development when compared with the Pacific Coast, and might catch by surprise unsuspecting travellers expecting all inclusive or high end resorts. While this type of accommodation options are also available, they are not prevalent, hence the true laid back attitude of locals and travellers alike. 2. How do I get there? Is a car needed? A rental car is not necessary. You can get here from San Jose by public transit, door-to-door minivan service, driving a rental car or by private transfer (we can arrange that for you!). Most travellers choose the public transit, which is convenient, reliable and inexpensive. As a rule of thumb, if your intention is to get here on the bus, you will have to chose flights landing in San Jose no later than 2pm to catch the last bus of the day to Puerto Viejo. Similarly, if you want to leave Playa Chiquita on the day of your flight, you will have to catch a flight departing no earlier than 2pm. For flights outside these windows, you will need to spend the night in San Jose. Please inquire if you have any specific questions about transportation. 3. What is the weather like? Do the houses have air conditioning? 'The only thing that is constant is change"...this could not be more true about the weather in this part of Costa Rica. Overall, this is a tropical rainforest environment, with not so distinct dry and rainy seasons. One can expect that the average daily temperatures will be around 30C (85F) and 20C (70F) at night throughout the year. The amount of rain varies, however most precipitations come in torrential showers followed by sunshine. There is significant humidity in the air at all times. Similar to 98% of vacation homes owners in the area, we did not find air conditioning necessary. The houses are built with air vents for natural ventilation. The average nightly temperature of 20C (70F) is comfortable for a restful sleep. For the occasional hotter evening, ceiling/wall fans are available in every room. 4. What is there to do? What activities are available? Most travellers come here to enjoy the beaches and to explore the amazing flora and fauna of the surrounding rainforest. The area is also popular with surfers and yoga practitioners. It is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway, as well as a a very convenient location for a family vacation. Some of the most popular activities are snorkelling the coral reef, zip-line canopy tours and jungle hikes, river rafting, visiting the nearby wildlife rescue center (located within walking distance from La Selvatica) or night time turtle watching, to name only a few. On a rainy day, you can browse through our book collection, play a board game (chess, checkers and few other games are available), catch up on your emails or make travel plans using the free wi-fi internet, or watch a DVD from the collection available at Casa Grande. 5. Do I need local currency? The local currency is the colon (plural colones). As an easy reference, 1 USD equals approximately 500 colones. US Dollars are widely accepted in most tourist areas all over Costa Rica. From our own experience, we found that what works best is to use our credit cards to withdraw colones at ATM's. You can do this as soon as you land at San Jose airport, while waiting for your checked baggage – there are two ATM's right by the baggage carousels. It is probably safest to withdraw just enough cash for the first few days of your trip (for example the equivalent of $150-$200) and avoid carrying to much cash on you while travelling. Once on the Caribbean, you can use the ATM's in Puerto Viejo and Cahuita. You can also withdraw cash from your credit card directly from the bank tellers (you must have your original passport with you). Credit cards are increasingly more accepted by tourist businesses, however it is safe to always have some cash on hand. The next door grocery/mini-department store where you will probably shop for most food, beverage and other needs accepts all types of credit cards. 6. Are there jungle creatures around? Our homes are located in the rainforest, in a lush environment also home to howler monkeys, toucans, sloths, lizards, frogs, snakes, spiders, bats, ants and many other neat creatures. Some of these could be watched right from the comfort of your porch! We try to blend in as much as possible with the natural environment and to be passive and respectful observers of the surrounding wildlife. We are fortunate to have a rather limited mosquito population. 7. Is La Selvatica the right place for me? We offer two homes. Casa Grande is a good option for people who enjoy larger living areas, and also for families with children. Guests of Casa Grande enjoy a large porch, complimentary use of bicycles and laundry service (provided by our caretaker). We found that our homes are especially attractive to travellers willing to embark in an eye-opening experience of nature, wildlife, different culture and holistic relaxation. We offer two cozy self catering vacation homes in a spectacular rainforest/beach setting. We do not offer services similar to those found in high-end hotels or all inclusive resorts, nor do we intend to compete for their guests. The area is enjoyed by independent travellers and it is probably better suited to travellers not adverse to being in occasional and relative close proximity with geckos, spiders, humming birds, agoutis or any other creatures which inhabit the nearby rain-forest. This area is NOT a bug-free zone. 8. Are there restaurants and shops nearby? La Selvatica is located within 2 minutes walking distance from the main road which treks along the coast. This means we are also within few minutes walk from a couple of grocery stores, a handful of good restaurants, a couple of yoga centres and a few other shops. You can shop nearby for most basic necessities. For more choices, there are plenty of shopping options in Puerto Viejo. Another great shopping option for local produce and plenty of other goods is the Saturday market, taking place weekly in Puerto Viejo. 8. Is the area safe? The area is at least just as safe as most places. Like most other places, the Southern Caribbean and Costa Rica can be enjoyed with no worries, when common sense safety procedures are employed. Petty theft is not uncommon. The local business owners community is very active in promoting safety for tourists, and this should not be interpreted as an indication that the area is unsafe. Our property is fenced in (gates locked at night by guests). Both our houses have lock-boxes and guests are encouraged to store all valuables there, when not in use. We also advise our guests to bring a couple of passport copies to carry with them, while their original passports are safely stored in the lock-box. We have a caretaker on-site and a resident dog, for added security. Always take only the minimum with you when going to the beach, especially if you anticipate spending lots on time in the water. It is best to take a special trip to the beach for taking photos, then leave the camera in the lock-box and enjoy your worry-free day at the beach!

The SpaceEXPERIENCE THE REAL CARIBBEAN OF COSTA RICA IN THIS SYMPATHETIC LOCAL MINI-HOSTEL This is the place of a super sweet local family that I have been friends with for over six years. They have a simple but beautifully authentic Caribbean-style double house, with one cabina with own bathroom and a small kitchen on one side, and two small private rooms on two floors with shared kitchen and shared bathroom on the other side. Big parts of the house have been newly renovated in the last 2 months, and the plan is to improve more details over the course of the next months. The house is set in a beautiful, well-maintained garden in a quiet and safe neighborhood. This listing is for the small double room on the second floor with a double bed, mosquito net, a fan, some shelves and a little balcony. The shared bathroom with cold water shower is downstairs as is the shared outdoor kitchen (with roof) that is equipped with a stove, fridge, some pans and kitchenware for basic cooking as well as some seatings. If you are on a budget, are easy-going, nature-loving persons and would like to experience the real Caribbean and its people and share with like-minded travelers, this charming local mini-hostel (with just three rooms) is the place for you! The family has two kids (6 & 11 years-old) and lives on the same property in the house next-door. They have been living in the area all their lives and are great sources of information all around the area, wildlife and local food and traditions. They and their family are passionate fishermen and will be happy to provide fresh fish and lobsters for reasonable prices every time they make a catch. They can also take you on private hikes, kayak tours and snorkel adventures for fair rates. Guest AccessWifi available in the room. Laundry service 6$ per load (only washing, no drying) Bus pickup service in Puerto Viejo: 8$ per way They also offer shared lunch or dinner for very accessible prices, just ask them!

I can also assist with your tour and transportation arrangements, should you need any help.

The SpaceVous y trouverez un logement bien entretenu dans le style des Caraïbes et représentatif de l’écotourisme du Costa Rica écotourisme. Les bungalows sont situés sur un site de 4'000 m2 entourés d’une magnifique flore. Le Lodge se compose de 3 bungalows confortables, (actuellement un de construit) aménagés chacun avec un style différent pour 2 personnes. Tous les bungalows disposent d'une salle de bains privée avec eau chaude, terrasse, hamac, moustiquaire, ventilateur et WIFI. Malheureusement, nos bungalows ne sont pas conçus pour les enfants de moins de 14 ans, ces derniers étant construits à 4.00 m du sol. Les bungalows de style caribéen sont adaptés au climat et à l'environnement. Ventilation naturelle et ventilateurs assurent la fraîcheur de votre sommeil. Contrairement à une chambre dans le village, vous pouvez vous reposer et vous relaxer en paix. Offrez-vous une pause dans une atmosphère détendue des Caraïbes et profitez de la combinaison unique de plages de sable et de la forêt tropicale sauvage. Le nom de Mar Verde Lodge vient du fait que les trois bungalows sont construits sur pilotis au sommet desquels nous avons une vue splendide sur la jungle qui ressemble presque à une mer verte. The NeighborhoodPlaya Chiquita Cette plage de sable jaune s’étend en direction de Punta Cocles et forme une baie dont elle tire son nom. Au-delà de ce point, la côte irrégulière s'étend le long de plates-formes de pierre, et à environ deux kilomètres en direction du sud s’élève une colline rocheuse au charme pittoresque, car entièrement recouverte d’une végétation tropicale luxuriante. À ce stade, la côte forme un coude avec de l'eau calme et claire. Cette partie de la côte est d'une grande beauté et se prête bien à la détente, à la baignade et à la contemplation d’une nature intacte, tout en se baladant à pied, à cheval, ou simplement depuis plage. Other Things to NoteMAR VERDE LODGE En ce qui nous concerne Après de nombreux voyages à travers le monde à la recherche de notre pays de rêve, nous nous sommes envolés, en 2010, pour le Costa Rica. Dès notre première arrivée dans la vallée centrale, nous sommes tombés amoureux de la gentillesse des gens, de la nature et de ces paysages paradisiaques. Pour nous, il était clair que nous allions émigrer à "Pura Vida". Après plusieurs voyages à "Pura Vida", nous avons cherché notre lieu de résidence. Arrivés à Puerto Viejo, nous avons été enthousiasmés par l'ambiance qui régnait dans ce village de pêcheurs, avec ses longues plages bordées de palmiers. Immédiatement, nous sommes partis à la recherche d’un terrain ou d’un Lodge. Après de nombreux courriels et à l’aide de professionnels, nous avons trouvé notre rêve : Playa Chiquita, le coup de foudre. Maintenant, nous y vivons à Playa Chiquita et sommes face à de nouveaux défis. "Pura Vida" au Costa Rica, vous allez en entendre beaucoup parler ! Il n'y a probablement pas deux mots qui puissent mieux décrire le Costa Rica et ses habitants. Pura Vida traduit littéralement quelque chose comme la vie pure. Mais, derrière cette expression, il y a beaucoup plus : c’est le mode de vie et la culture de tout un pays ! A découvrir ! Contact Mar Verde Lodge.

Beaucoup de ces communautés n’avaient jusqu'à récemment aucun contact avec le monde moderne. Ces visites pourront non seulement vous donner un aperçu d’un mode de vie unique, mais aussi soutenir ces communautés dans leurs efforts de diversification économique. Les Caraïbes sont également la patrie d’une culture afro-caribéenne. La plupart des visites ont lieu dans les zones protégées de la réserve indienne ou dans Kekoldo ou encore dans la réserve naturelle de Grandoca-Manzanillo. Activités locales Il y a beaucoup d’activités locales que nous pouvons volontiers vous aider à organiser. Beaucoup de ces divertissements sont très prisés, donc si vous voulez faire du cheval le long de la plage ou apprendre à surfer aux meilleurs endroits, laissez-nous réserver ces activités pour vous.
