Aguas Claras

Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Aguas Claras £££££

  • Costa Rica
  • Beach and Island Escapes

Just 10 minutes from the Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo, Aguas Claras is a small boutique hotel with just six casitas ranging from one bed to five. Owned by a local artist. The property has a wonderfully traditional style amidst tropical gardens accentuated by the use of bright colours, mosaics, and recycled materials to create a unique blend of traditional crafts, modern art and Caribbean flair.

Le Cameleon Hotel £££££

  • Costa Rica
  • Boutique

Hotel Le Cameleon is a very comfortable modern boutique hotel on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast at Puerto Viejo, near the Panamanian border. The property is surrounded by tropical forest and wildlife. Lots of activities are available including hiking, snorkelling, diving, surfing, mountain biking, kayaking and cultural visits to local communities. The long, golden stretch of Cocles beach is just a short stroll from the property. There is also a spa that provides a range of therapies. Rooms are bright, white and modern. It’s a 3km hike along the beach and jungle trails into town although there is a very good Italian restaurant within 5 minutes walk of the hotel.
