  • The Caribbean side of Costa Rica differs greatly from its Pacific sister, and the accommodations are quite different, too. There are no high rises or big chain hotels, instead there are lots of smaller places with individual charm and character, tending towards the rustic rather than the posh. Our top 10 list includes places we'd like to revisit, and would even recommend to our parents for their exceptional value and high standards, neither of which can be taken for granted, particulary in this off-the-beaten-track region. Like the other hotels in our top 5, the King has modern amenities like hot water, a swimming pool, and wi-fi, but it also has a delicious included breakfast and a Mexican restaurant, notably missing from Agapi Apartamentos and Casa Verde Lodge, two of our other favorites in Puerto Viejo. Almost every visit to Puerto Viejo involves an overnight stay in San Jose, whether upon arrival or departure, so we've included the character-rich Hotel Aranjuez for that leg of your trip, as well as a couple of others just in case. All of our top 5 hotels have wi-fi and bilingual customer service, both assets especially vital and convenient for staying in the Caribbean. If the upscale modern rooms at Le Cameleon- our number 5 choice- aren't your style, their private-yet-open-to-the-public beach club across the street is still a nice place to while away some hours in a hammock or reading in one of their cool blue and white cabanas.
