Relax Natural Village, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
An adults-only accommodation with beautiful, airy cabins set in the jungle.
Relax Natural Village is aptly named; it's a cluster of six wooden cabins deep in nature and surrounded by tropical plants. Although the cabins are next to one another, the greenery conceals porches (which include colorful hammocks) for privacy, so you can keep your sliding doors and windows open. Other amenities include an on-site dining area where you can enjoy a daily breakfast.
