Property Description

What a view from the worlds largest hammock, a place to sit back with a cold beverage or fresh fruit juice and chat among new friends.

Hang out with toucans during the day and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the morning. Full service restaurant and bar offering amazing western comfort food made to order, and sourced locally. Menu service during the day with evening meals served family style. Amazing sunsets - with views of the sea and the city below - followed by our nightly campfire.

We have beds made with Pine from the jungle inside the main house, And now we are proud to unveil our newest *Relax* dorm with the thickest matresses and a giant hammcok off the front deck....further away from social areas so its a great place to catch up on your sleep and bird watch from your bed!

Friday BBQ's, fresh breads, local ingredients, amazing fruits on site and we are now cooking from the new earth oven. Cool breeze, chill vibe, hiking accessible, coffee and bird watching tours. We are always adding cool things and recently we put in the new tree house for an even higher lookout.

Our bar is fully stocked with every thing from water to Limoncello made by our Italian neighbour and craft beer from the local brewery.

We do employ many locals who have grown up close by so do not expect fluent English from our receptionists, but do expect to be welcomed warmly and to practise your Spanish.

    Superb

    26 Dec 2018
    I absolutely loved my stay at Casa Elemento, a beautiful location, super friendly and fun staff and a genuinely lovely place to stay for a few nights to relax and take in the countryside. The only thing I could fault was that I was in the Finca outside of the main hostel which was a (literal) 3 minute uphill walk and could sometimes feel a bit isolated and wasn't too fun to walk back to at night. The finca itself however was also a lovely location and would 100% reccommend Casa Elemento!

    Fabulous

    Got told it was a must do and I’m unsure if I can say the same. It has amazing views and the hammocks are really cool if you can find space but the atmosphere was really dull, some of the bartenders were a bit up themselves and it was a very expensive bill at the end - getting charged for multiple things we didn’t put on our tab. If I hadn’t gone in with such high expectations I would have loved it.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful location! The atmosphere was great, too! Met a lot of nice people and the staff were really friendly. We stayed in a cabana that was open at the front... mosquito net worked fine, but full on sure I saw a jaguar... which ended up being a mule. Didn’t sleep well 😂

    Good

    13 Jan 2019
    Staff are lovely and the food at dinner and breakfast were good. Whole place just felt like it needed bit of a revamp and clean as there’s old facilities ie zip line etc not in use on the property. My room was missing a glass of pane and they put a towel in its place so not ideal for the wary traveller. Also, there appeared to be free dorms on the actual property but I had to hike five mins up a hill off the property instead. Definitely a place to visit but cautious about staying over.
