Beautiful house, spectacular wildlife!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing! The house is beautiful and the wildlife spectacular!. They dont show that many pictures of the house but you won't be disappointed. The upper level is wide open except for the bedroom which can be completely closed and locked from the inside. The upstairs bedroom also has a private bathroom. During the day it can be opened up to enjoy the weather. There is also a large seating area and a fully screened cabana on the opposite end of the large deck. Downstairs there is another bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining room. The kitchen and dining room close and open similarly to the bedroom so you can feel completely secure at night and feel like you're in the middle of the jungle during the day. Everyday I sat at the table and marveled while eating breakfast overlooking a beautiful pool and magnificent scenery.

You're not really going to see the ocean much from here but you get so much more. Tons of White faced and Howler monkeys as well as Toucans and other birds living with you right there. We also saw a monster iguana in the Tree of Life (that's what we came to call it and you will know exactly which one I'm talking about if you stay here). The Howlers got a little wild one morning and had a little poop fight and our SUV got caught in the crossfire but it just makes the experience that much more memorable.

Speaking of SUV, you can get almost the entire way to the property without 4 wheel drive but there is a quite the hill at the very end that you may or may not be able to make up in a regular car. Be warned.

As far as bugs, well, yes there are bugs. You just have to be smart about it. When it gets to be dusk if you leave everything open and have lights on the bugs are going to come in. If you leave the lights off or close it up you can pretty much control it.

You can walk to the store or several restuarants and bars no problem (just remember the hill on the way back). Between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo there are all kinds of restaurants, bars and shops so you really dont have to be in any one area in particular. That whole stretch of coast is really the draw.

You won't regret it.

Jungle Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
If you are expecting perfection and fruity drink service with umbrellas, then this place is not for you. If you want a beautiful, private retreat in the middle of the jungle, this is the place to go. Expect lots of interesting bugs in the evening, but most of them wont bother you. The internet was very slow, but we managed just fine. It was nice to have our 16 year old all to ourselves. The kitchen left a little to be desired but has everything you need. We really enjoyed making our coffee in the morning, and then going to see if we could spot the monkeys or sloths in the trees. No AC wasn't a problem and most nights I thought it got chilly, although my wife would disagree with me. I loved how the whole house opened up to the outside, and the very large pool was amazing! Mary the housekeeper came twice and week, kept the place spotless, and was a very pleasant person. I would love to stay here again.

Welcome to the jungle!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 just returned from back-to-back visits to Puerto Viejo in 2012 and 2013. In addition, Casita Tucan did not disappoint with its idyllic salt water pool and amazing wildlife. After long days at the beach and in town shopping, the cool waters of the pool and surrounding views were phenomenal. IMPORTANT NOTE- 4x4 REQUIRED.

The house itself is much more luxurious/finished than others we have stayed at. It includes dry wall and paint in the living areas/bedrooms which provides a nice homey feel. As with most homes in the area, it did not have AC, but ocean breezes and ceiling fans kept the place comfortable on all but the warmest days/nights. If there was one area that the owner could make improvements, it would be installing a ceiling fan in the main floor bedroom and having either box or pedestal fans available for more air circulation on those 38 degree/100% humidity days.

Casita Tucan is THE PLACE for those that want to experience the jungle without having to drive to it or go on an excursion. My family observed and successfully identified far more creatures just hanging out around the pool than the most expensive rain forest or canopy tour. The centuries-old "mother" trees in the front and back yard were full of wildlife daily including 3 species of toucans (Keel-billed, Aricari, and Chestnut), Green Parrots, hummingbirds, Tanagers, Green Iguanas, squirrels, white-face capuchin and howler monkeys, and most impressively a giant 3-toed sloth that my daughter named Chewbaca. In addition, several species of lizards and geckos were quite common and often nearly underfoot or overhead.

Those that are freaked out by insects and spiders may want to consider another home. Being situated far from town and literally in the jungle, the size and abundance of our 6 and 8 legged neighbors was impressive. However, mosquitoes were actually quite rare surprisingly. In 12 days at the home I estimate that we observed and dispatched less than 2 dozen of the flying menace. The sand fleas at some of the beaches were actually much more annoying and irritating.

The caretaker, Guillermo, was a gentleman and professional. He was always quick to respond to both texts and phone calls, and even brought us organic coffee and produce from a trip to San Jose. Guillermo's employee Mary came to the home twice weekly to do laundry, wash dishes, and tidy up, and she too did a phenomenal job.

My family loved this place and hope to return in the future.

Place you won't forget

Place you won't forget
  • 5 of 5
We have spent one beautiful week in the Casita Tucan. It is located in the hills above the Caribbean only about half a mile from the nearest beach. It is a two-story house with observation deck and master bedroom on the second floor. Kitchen, dining room and second bedroom are on the first floor. The house is well equipped. It has 2 bathrooms, washing machine and dishwasher. Supplies can be replenished in a few small stores (including a French bakery) en route to the beach.

While the ocean is visible from the deck on the second floor, the house is surrounded by a sliver of jungle with some impressively large trees. The deck is perfect place for observing wild life in the mornings and late afternoon. With the location up on a hill we have received a nice breeze most of the day keeping the house comfortable. Even though the nearest beach is in walking distance it is worthwhile to explore other beautiful places located within 8 mile radius where we found some great spots for swimming and snorkeling. The Cahuita National Park and The Manzanillo National Refuge are highly recommended. Both are close by and have opportunities for trekking in the jungle.

The nearby towns offer a balanced mix of local and international activities including a decent nightlife. We would definitely stay here again and we highly recommend experiencing this unforgettable getaway!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5
The place is very well kept and very spacious. The description and the photos are accurate.
The ocean is visible from the house; however the view of the ocean is restricted due to trees. This did not spoil our experience. The communication with the owner was excellent; additionally there is a local manager, in case of any issues. He was very professional/friendly and looked after property at owner’s absence very well.


The swimming pool is fabulous, perfect to relax in evening and definite must if you have children.
I have stayed for two weeks with no issues whatsoever (family of five). There is a shop, five minutes walk away, that is reasonably stocked up. Or alternatively you can find many shops and restaurants in a nearby village of Puerto Viejo, 10 minutes drive away. There are several choices of beaches. To relax Playa Chiquita or Manzanillo, if you prefer bit of surfing than I recommend Playa Cockles.

I would recommend going to Manzanillo, once you get there carry on as far as you can keeping to the sea. Right in the end you will be able to park your car. If you walk further 2/3 minutes you find perfect place for diving (without needing to go out in the boat).

If you fancy walking through jungle Cahuita is worth considering, it is about 3 hours pleasant walk through jungle with sea constantly beside. You can also arrange many different trips at Puerto Viejo.

If you fancy overnight trips you can go to Panama City. Tortugero National Park is also worth considering. You’ll jump on the boat at Limon, which will take you to the park. The same boat will take you back to Limon next day.


Overall, it was a fantastic experience, I will definitely recommend visit.

Jungle and Carribean Sea - nearly paradise

  • 5 of 5
Great house in the middle of jungle corresponding completely with the listing description and photographs. As a matter of fact, reality was almost even better - with various animal species within the sight and just a few steps from the wite-sand beaches. All comfort one would need. We spent there a fortnight with our children (aged 13 and 8) and just loved it. Perfect starting point for trips to national parks of Manzanillo, Cahuita or Tortugero. The nearby town of Puerto Viejo has an authentic Carribean atmosphere with its typical relaxed pace and plenty of bars inviting for a drink. A place I would recommend to anybody and I would always want to get back to.
