Caribbean coast: Cariblue


The small and attractive mid-range Cariblue resort is set just across from the renowned sand of surf of Punta Cocles, near Cahuita National Park and its abundance of flora and fauna.

There are 22 thatched, hardwood bungalows in a tropical garden, simply furnished with wicker furniture, ceiling fan, mosquito netting, mosaic-tiled bathroom and a shady veranda with hammock. All are linked to the ranch-style main building by a path that weaves around a sloping lawn.

There is an attractive freeform swimming pool and a children’s pool. The self-contained cottages are great for families, with two double beds and a bunk bed, while standard rooms are in palm-thatched duplex bungalows, sleeping up to four. Guests can dine in the hotel restaurant or eat out in one of the numerous cafés in laidback Puerto Viejo.
