Options & Upgrades

  • this trip may be taken as is at the introductory price or customized according to your liking
  • a 3 night version of this escape is available and ideal for passengers traveling from Tortugeuro (or San Jose) en route to Bocas del Toro Panama.
  • self drive/car rental option available.
  • luxury / honeymoon lodging option available


Trip Notes

  • Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and neighboring towns of Hone Creek, Cahuita, Cocles, Chiquita, Puna Uva, and Manzanillo make up what we call Costa Rica's 'Caribbean coast'.  While the port city of Limon and popular destination of Tortuguero are also situated on the same coastline they are located farther north and for this reason are generally excluded from our discussion of this particular region. Puerto Viejo is a 4 hour drive from the capital of San Jose. With essentially only one road leading to the coast, you must first travel north through the Braulio Carrillo National Park with its expansive and sweeping views of Caribbean lowlands visible from winding road passing through this virgin cloud forest. Patience is a must along the scenic two (sometimes three) lane highway shared with trucks carrying goods to and from Limon.  As you pass through the port city and round the bend heading due south towards Puerto Viejo, its hard to miss the massive tankers dwarfed by the Caribbean Sea lying in wait off the coast. The last part of your journey takes you into the heart of the Caribbean as the road moves past beaches, along rainforest, and through banana plantations en route to your final destination.
  • Hotels on this escape are located 'on the road to' or just outside of Puerto Viejo proper.  Like most lodging options offered by Escapitos we have selected these hotels based on the unique experience provided as well as their commitment to sustainable tourism. These particular hotels are removed from the center of town, surrounded by the Caribbean rainforest, and just a few steps from the best beaches in the region offering guests a truly immersive experience in nature. Imagine waking to the sounds of tropical birds and sites of howler monkeys in the trees right outside your room before spotting a sloth on your way to hotel reception. We're confident you won't mind a short walk or bike ride to restaurants, shops, and tour providers reminding you that you're never too far from civilization! Be sure to check out our reviews of hotels included on this escape for additional orientation before traveling.
  • The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica harbors Cahuita National Park and Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge.  Most of the wildlife you see in and around Puerto Viejo, Cocles, Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva is an extension of these two protected areas. Cahuita offers and excellent intro to wildlife in the region with its soft sand trails winding in and out of rainforest and pristine beach, while Gandoca Manzanillo is recommended for travelers seeking to go a little farther and harder in exchange for the reward of coveted wildlife sitings and spectacular views of Costa Rica's southern coastline. Wherever your may go during your stay, keep your eyes and ears open (mostly towards the trees); be still and wait for nature's magical moments to unfold before you.
  • We encourage all travelers to participate in tours and activities that support local economies and celebrate indigenous culture. Located about 15-20 from Puerto Viejo, The Kekoldi Indigenous Reserve is home to the Bribri. Take a village tour and observe their green Iguana project before lunch and a hike to a hidden waterfall.  You may also choose to support organizations like ATEC, who promote sustainable tourism by hiring local guides for tours, coordinating volunteer activities, and providing conservation education for travelers and local residents alike. Check with your Escapitos representative for more information about ways in which to make your escape even more sustainable!

Cahuita offers and excellent intro to wildlife in the region with its soft sand trails winding in and out of rainforest and pristine beach, while Gandoca Manzanillo is recommended for travelers seeking to go a little farther and harder in exchange for the reward of coveted wildlife sitings and spectacular views of Costa Rica's southern coastline. Wherever your may go during your stay, keep your eyes and ears open (mostly towards the trees); be still and wait for nature's magical moments to unfold before you.
  • We encourage all travelers to participate in tours and activities that support local economies and celebrate indigenous culture. Located about 15-20 from Puerto Viejo, The Kekoldi Indigenous Reserve is home to the Bribri. Take a village tour and observe their green Iguana project before lunch and a hike to a hidden waterfall.  You may also choose to support organizations like ATEC, who promote sustainable tourism by hiring local guides for tours, coordinating volunteer activities, and providing conservation education for travelers and local residents alike. Check with your Escapitos representative for more information about ways in which to make your escape even more sustainable!

Trip Notes

  • Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and neighboring towns of Hone Creek, Cahuita, Cocles, Chiquita, Puna Uva, and Manzanillo make up what we call Costa Rica's 'Caribbean coast'.  While the port city of Limon and popular destination of Tortuguero are also situated on the same coastline they are located farther north and for this reason are generally excluded from our discussion of this particular region. Puerto Viejo is a 4 hour drive from the capital of San Jose. With essentially only one road leading to the coast, you must first travel north through the Braulio Carrillo National Park with its expansive and sweeping views of Caribbean lowlands visible from winding road passing through this virgin cloud forest. Patience is a must along the scenic two (sometimes three) lane highway shared with trucks carrying goods to and from Limon.  As you pass through the port city and round the bend heading due south towards Puerto Viejo, its hard to miss the massive tankers dwarfed by the Caribbean Sea lying in wait off the coast. The last part of your journey takes you into the heart of the Caribbean as the road moves past beaches, along rainforest, and through banana plantations en route to your final destination.
  • Hotels on this escape are located 'on the road to' or just outside of Puerto Viejo proper.  Like most lodging options offered by Escapitos we have selected these hotels based on the unique experience provided as well as their commitment to sustainable tourism. These particular hotels are removed from the center of town, surrounded by the Caribbean rainforest, and just a few steps from the best beaches in the region offering guests a truly immersive experience in nature. Imagine waking to the sounds of tropical birds and sites of howler monkeys in the trees right outside your room before spotting a sloth on your way to hotel reception. We're confident you won't mind a short walk or bike ride to restaurants, shops, and tour providers reminding you that you're never too far from civilization! Be sure to check out our reviews of hotels included on this escape for additional orientation before traveling.
  • The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica harbors Cahuita National Park and Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge.  Most of the wildlife you see in and around Puerto Viejo, Cocles, Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva is an extension of these two protected areas. Cahuita offers and excellent intro to wildlife in the region with its soft sand trails winding in and out of rainforest and pristine beach, while Gandoca Manzanillo is recommended for travelers seeking to go a little farther and harder in exchange for the reward of coveted wildlife sitings and spectacular views of Costa Rica's southern coastline.

Rise early and prepare yourself for a mind blowing visit to the ancient Maya ruins of Tikal. Located just across the border in Guatemala, these jungle ruins provide a glimpse into the world of the Maya as they lived thousands of years ago. Both original and restored limestone structures rise into the jungle canopy creating impressive views from above and a humbling perspective from the ground looking up. Keep your eyes open for toucans, spider and howler monkeys, as well as the ellusive jaguar as your bilingual guide identifies various flora and fauna along the trails between the temple sites.

As you traverse the massive expanse of ruins absorb the history and culture of the Maya people, as one of the greatest cities of the ancient Maya world comes back to life through your mind's eye. Imagine Maya astronomers calculating precise locations of circling heavenly bodies from atop the pyramids or people gathered in the main plaza to observe an athletic event of Maya ballgame. Exit the jungle ruins of Tikal with a newfound understanding of the Maya and hopefully many new questions regarding this highly advance yet enigmatic and destructive civilization.

Overnight:  San Ignacio, Cayo District
