Date of Stay
May 14, 2013
I spent 1 week at Casa Caribaea with my wife and adult daughter. This was our 8th trip to Costa Rica and the 4th to this part of the country. We normally travel in the dry season but decided to try the green season so we booked a week in the middle of May. The weather was better than expected. It did not rain every day and when it did rain it was in the late afternoon or evening and as such did not affect our activities. I would definitely consider returning in May. Casa Caribaea and the surrounding property are beautifully maintained. The attention to detail is evident in both the exterior and interior features. The Casa was spotlessly clean. The queen size beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on in Costa Rica. The Casa is fully air-conditioned but we only used the air conditioning in the bedroom at night as we enjoyed the coastal breezes flowing in through the large screened windows in the living room and kitchen. The Casa is located about 5 minutes off the coastal highway and the town of Uvita. This is an ideal location for exploring the south pacific coast as the cute little surf town of Dominical is only about 15 minutes to the north while there is an interesting eclectic mix of restaurants in Ojochal 15 minutes to the south. There is also the famous Whale’s Tail beach at Marina Ballena Park to explore at Uvita, not to mention all the ecotourism and adventure activities offered in Uvita. We have rented other villas in this area but they were generally further off the coastal highway and required a 10 to 15 minute drive in a 4x4 to reach. It was nice being only 5 minutes off the highway and centrally located as we could easily come back to the Casa between activities for lunch, a siesta, a dip in the pool, or a quick shower. Jason and Victoria were the perfect hosts. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and were always available to share this knowledge. We will definitely be returning to this part of Costa Rica and we look forward to renting once again from Jason and Victoria.
