Caribbean - Puerto Viejo
Aguas Claras

Our tastefully renovated Victorian style houses are located just outside the eclectic village of Puerto Viejo on the east coast of southern Costa Rica. The Caribbean crystal clear waters give way to remote sand beaches, coconut palm trees and a dramatic blue sky. This place leaves a permanent impression on one’s mind. You get into the rhythm of the primary rainforest,  you grow with the flowers, breathe with the ocean and experience full awareness of life and rejuvenating energy. Each house is a unique piece of art, carefully curated by our creative owner. Solar panels and recycled material never looked so luxurious. We believe in a true environmental awareness, focus on sustainability and the positive impact of creativity. Art is central in every corner. We strive to establish a magical mix of Caribbean ethnical culture and local handicraft, with the creative work of artist friends.
