    I would recommend this place to everyone. The location is amazing, the beach is close with an exotic jungle in the backyard. Great food and staff. The atmosphere was just good. If you're going to Puerto Viejo I would recommend this place for you.

    On this side (Caribbean) of the country September and October are typically the driest months of the year. The water is also pretty calm, so it makes for a great time of the year to visit.
