We really liked the cabina! Very nice people and very relaxed atmosphere. Great for taking a few days' rest.
Meant only to stay 4 days but stayed 10, this was not only due to loving Cahuita but also enjoying staying in my lovely room with the sound of the howler monkeys in the morning. Peace and tranquillity surrounded in vegetation, a hammock, sleeping to the sound of the waves and awesome banana pancakes in the morning. I loved this place and could have stayed for months. Had a fabulous day on a tour with Brigitte to the Bri Bri village to learn about chocolate and a fun time at the Waterfall.
This place is pretty small: a few simple, but quite adequate cabins in a piece of a tropical forest/garden within 50 meters from Cahuita's Playa Negra (a decent beach, but not spectacular). The multilingual owner and staff were very frriendly and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the area. There was even hot water in the shower ("electric shower") - something fairly rare in the tropics. The nights were very quiet - something we enjoyed a lot after spending over a week in noisy cities.
Nice hostel about a fifteen minute walk from the centre of Cahuita. You have a full cabin to yourself which was nice with a good double bed and ensuite. Porch area was nice in the evenings to sit out in if you are comfortable with the insects that the light will attract! We saw a sloth on a tree just outside the entrance too when we stayed! Only downside was that staff were not around all the time and the area was very quiet.
I would really recommend to stay at Brigitte's: the cabines are lovely (and relaxed with hammocks), breakfast is really good and Brigitte helps with everything you need! She's a great host. The cabines are on the corner of the beautiful beach of Cahuita!
