Cahuita is a great place to get in some beach time. Playa Negra has black sand and is near good swimming areas, and there are white sand beaches found within the Cahuita National Park. The offshore section of this park hosts one of the country’s best coral reefs. Needless to say, it’s a good spot for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Hotel La Diosa is set along Playa Negra. One of the few Cahuita hotels with direct beach access, Hotel La Diosa offers its guests an unparalleled place to relax and enjoy the mellow life in Costa Rica. It’s walking distance from town but is set along a quiet stretch of the coast, so stays here are generally quite tranquil.
Accommodations consist of colorful, well-equipped bungalows. Every bungalow has a private hot water bathroom and many even have their own Jacuzzi tub – a welcome amenity after a day on the beach. Most rooms have air conditioners and all have fans, thereby allowing the indoor temperature to remain consistently cool. The bungalows range from one to three room options, with both queen size and king size beds. There are hammocks in the front and several have balconies with coastal views. Wireless internet is available throughout.
Breakfast can be enjoyed in the hotel’s open-air rancho. Breakfast consists of gallo pinto, fruit, pancakes, toast and fresh Costa Rican coffee. During the afternoon guests can swim in the hotel’s pool or head to the beach for sun. Also on hand is a room where guests can to practice yoga or meditation.
