At Casas La Selvatica we offer two comfortable homes immersed in the rain forest and surrounded by wildlife, yet only minutes away from a picture perfect beach, grocery store and restaurants. The setting is ideal for couples or families who appreciate the comfort of a home rather than a hotel room. We are located within easy reach of countless low ecological impact recreational activities.

Our property and the surrounding area are home to an incredible array of wildlife: you will most likely watch howler monkeys in their search for food, toucans or sloths right from the comfort of the patio. The homes are located minutes away from a couple of ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Playa Chiquita is an idyllic beach village, ideally situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. This quaint location could not be more convenient for the travelers, whether bound for an eye opening experience of nature, wildlife, culture or just pure relaxation. The village is located on the edge of the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, a protected nature reserve which is home to numerous species of animals, birds and plants. It is also only 4 miles South of the happening town of Puerto Viejo, the epitome of a laid back Caribbean place, a melting pot of cultures and a great place for contracting tourist services.

La Selvatica and our two vacation rental homes are located within 2-3 minutes walking distance from the main road from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo, thus providing easy access to amenities, while being in a quiet location surrounded by nature and wildlife.

The following points of interest/amenities are all located within 5-10 minutes walking distance:
- Playa Chiquita beach - a picture perfect, palm fringed beach; suitable for swimming most months of the year, due to coral reef pools
- a handful of great restaurants
- El Duende Gourmet, a well stocked grocery/min-department store where you will find most necessities, from dinner ingredients and wine, to beauty and household supplies
- a couple of yoga studios
- the bus stop: direct buses from San Jose, as well as Limon, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo stop right in front of El Duende Gourmet.
