This small bed and breakfast-style resort sits on the beautiful white sand beach of Playa Cocles and affords excellent bird watching opportunities. The mission of Cariblue is to preserve the environment through eco-tourism. Take a relaxing swim in the pool, soak in the Jacuzzi, freshen up with a cool tropical drink at the wet bar, or relax with a spa treatment. There are plenty of open spaces to relax and chill.
The snack bar area is not only a great place to enjoy a tasty treat, but is also an activities area with board games, TV, magazines and books. Make your way over to the palm thatched rancho restaurant, which offers a tasty assortment of Caribbean and Italian cuisine. The Totem Beach Bar is well stocked with a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
The hotel offers a variety of accommodation options, including luxurious bungalows that are surrounded by exotic tropical gardens and nestled between the pristine white sand beach and the lush jungle. The spacious accommodations include private bathrooms decorated with mosaics, hot water, ceiling fans, air conditioning, safety deposit box, mosquito nets and a porch with hammocks. The interiors employ natural materials like wood and stone and are decorated with contemporary works of Caribbean art. For something roomier, rent the two bedroom, two bathroom house, complete with a fully equipped kitchen.
The hotel has its own arts and crafts shop, El Coral, and also runs a surf school. If you'd rather cruise around town than cruise along waves, you can rent bikes from the hotel and peddle around Puerto Viejo.
