I have stayed in these cabins for many years and have seen them improve every time. I love staying in them and recommend them to everyone who can climb stairs and wants to be super close to a beautiful beach.

This place is directly across the road (dirt road, zero traffic) from the most beautiful beach in the area. It's like your own little paradise. The cabins have everything you need and the manager is very attentive to your needs. The quality is much higher and the price is much lower than other accommodations in Puerto Viejo - Punta Uva.

The 2-story construction, with the screened in sleeping quarters upstairs allows you to enjoy the cool Atlantic breezes throughout the day. I have been...

We had a great time at the "El Caracol Azul" cabins. The two cabins are Caribbean style and rustic but very clean and comfortable. The beach is just through the garden gate and is absolutely beautiful - perfect for kids and adults alike - with gentle sloping sand into the water and lots of shade to sit under and enjoy...
