About Puerto Viejo Estate Holdings

Costa Rica is a beautiful place and it will capture your hearts.

Why Puerto Viejo Estate Holdings chose Cocles

Costa Rica offers a wide variety of spectacular terrain , animals and plants. With its unique location it boasts both Pacific and Caribbean coast lines. The Caribbean Coast offers a more relaxed friendly holiday with the added excitement of some extreme sports, for those who want to venture away from the delicious local food, drinks and beach. There are many reasons why Puerto Viejo is known as the most happening town on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. There is so much to see and do here, but far and away the overall vibe here is the 'pura vida' that Costa Rica is so famous for. So whether you come to relax under the palms on one of Puerto Viejo's beautiful beaches or try and tackle the surf at Salsa Brava (just 100 yards away) or Cocles, there is also great snorkeling and diving in the areas active coral reefs. Or how would you like to hike and bike through the jungle? There is also excellent white-water rafting in the area. It is all possible here. Puerto Viejo is also conveniently nestled between two of the area's most beautiful national parks where white-faced and howler monkeys, toucans and sloths abound. You will also want to come just to sample some of the area's famous dishes like the Caribbean-style rice and beans made with coconut and many other exquisite varieties of food in this little village.

What makes this cabin unique

Cocles Beach is the winner of the highly coveted Costa Rican government Blue Flag for pristine beach and is the only lifeguard-protected beach on the Caribbean Coast. The golden sands meet the warm Caribbean ocean and from the beach no buildings are visible. This beach has both great surfing at one end and safe swimming for families with children at the other. Please note that the route to the beach from the beach gate goes through a small strip of jungle (about 10 metres in width). This is national park and therefore cannot be cleared, so at times it can be over grown. If guests have mobility issues, the beach can be easily accessed from the main house gate, where the beach can be reached by just a short two minute walk along a small lane.

Spectacular location and beautiful house. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for a week in September and I couldn't imagine being any more impressed. The location is Perfect, cost to town and yet far enough away that the beaches are not crowded like they are in town.

The house is picturesque and well constructed.

We ate breakfast most morning on the patio, listening to the waves and watching the sloth, howler monkeys and tucans that lives in the trees in and around the property.

I fully expect to be returning, but next time with the kids and therefore probably reserving the other house nestled in the far back end of the property.

Perfect jungle paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Puerto Viejo. Casa Carcola was secluded and private to the outside world while the jungle and ocean were just steps from the front door. Fresh pineapples in the tropical garden, sloths and howler monkeys in the trees above, toucans flying overhead...a true tropical experience.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

The place is absolutely gorgeous and right near the beach. Thomas was very helpful, fun to talk with, and gave great recommendations. You can rent a bike for $5/day, which we did for several days to get back and forth to/from town. We will definitely be back. We had a wonderful time!

Beautiful beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

Great location on Cocles Beach about 10 min south of Puerto Viejo. There is a grocery store, bakery and great restaurants nearby or you can drive into town for more choices. Thomas took great care of us and introduced us to his community of spiritual and healing professionals as well. Very clean and safe.

There is also a 2 BR house at the front of the property that can be combined for a multi-family/friends vacation. If you're going to Puerto Viejo, this is where you want to stay.

private cottage tucked away on a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at casa Caracola! What a great little house... tucked in a lush garden right on the beach. The property is very secure and allows you to sleep with all the doors open to the sounds of the surf and the jungle. We had a resident sloth in the almond tree which we saw everyday, she even came down one day and we watched her and her baby for day we had 12 howler monkeys in the tree over our deck, again we spent the afternoon watching them. The house is well equipped and very spacious for two people. It was a pleasure to book with Sofie, and Thomas was super responsive and helpful! We would not hesitate to return or to recommend to others.... our favorite rental during our 3 week stay in beautiful Costa Rica!
