This is a great vacation home in a jungle setting. It is right across the street from the tropical beach – with many more walking or biking distance. The house is a solid modern home while at the same time retaining that jungle tree house feel. That bathtub was amazing! As was the size of the bedroom. Not sure the photos really do it justice.
The on-site caretaker was most helpful, check-in and check-out was effortless and efficient, although communicating required some rudimentary Spanish skills.
Playa-Chiquita is laid back with a Caribbean vibe and offers many quality outdoor restaurants and shops a few minutes walk. We had a hard time deciding where to eat as many places looked delightful. A few years ago we had stayed in Puerto Viejo but were looking for something more quiet and natural, but still within the beaten path. Playa Chiquita fits the bill.
The beaches we saw were almost void of people and had pretty fine sand, warm water and good waves. The beach is very natural – truly tropical - which we liked. We snorkeled and just played in the waves. There were quite a few surfers who seemed to catch good waves that day.
Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night (the owner was very flexible and helpful) but I would definitely want to come back to this location and home.
