Casa Tres Monos — Punta Uva, Costa Rica

The House and some of our Jungle Visitors

Our house is located in a beautiful tropical garden setting in the jungle at Punta Uva, a 5 minute walk to the best beaches of the Costa Rican Caribbean1

Punta Uva is located half way between the happening town of Puerto Viejo with it's many restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and activities and sleepy Manzanillo where there is more great eating, local Caribbean color, even more beautiful beaches and the entrance to the National Park.

There are also restaurants, groceries, and internet within nearby walking distance to Casa Tres Monos in the quiet neighborhoods of Punta Uva and Playa Chiquita.

See our location on the satellite map.

1 Outside Magazine included Punta Uva in their list of the world's 10 most beautiful beaches.

Casa Tres Monos (Three Monkeys) is a simple rustic 2 story home made of beautiful tropical hardwood set in a colorful tropical garden on the side of a small river within the borders of the Gandoca Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge teeming with rain forest life.

The house and the setting are very private and peaceful.  We are set back 200 meters down a jungle lane. Secluded from the noise of the road and crowds.

The Area and Getting Here

Nearby activities include snorkeling, diving, surfing, bicycling, fishing, kayaking, hiking in the reserve or national park.   Check out a full list or tours and activities for the area.

There are many restaurants nearby in the area and tons more choices in nearby Puerto Viejo. Browse the Puerto Viejo Satellite Map for more info on the area.

There are 4 public buses per day linking Puerto Viejo, Cahuita, Limon, and San Jose, some which will stop right at our driveway.  Schedules for buses as well as driving instructions, private and shared tourist shuttle bookings and all sorts of detailed info on getting to the area can be found here.

One really memorable way to get here from San Jose or Arenal is to take a whitewater rafting trip. They'll pick you up at your hotel in the morning, bring you on a day of adventure and then drop you off at our driveway at the end of the day. And since the rafting location is halfway between San Jose and Puerto Viejo your day is spent in fun not in transit!
