About Jessica and Marc
As the new owners in March of 2010, we have done many renovations and updates! Our passion for the area and the beauty around us is hard to contain and we want to share that excitement. After 12 years in offices and bustling cities, we LOVE being outdoors, helping you experience just WHY we would move to this incredible place. We wanted to be as remote as possible, but still have all the conveniences of home, like high speed internet, easy healthcare and a relaxed PURA VIDA life :)
Jessica and Marc purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Jessica and Marc chose Cocles
A one hour walk through the gorgeous beaches and down through the coral pools where you can experience little 'finding nemo' fish starting just 150 meters from your front door will convince a non-believer of the magic of this place. From the actual 5 can see an amazing variety of plants, butterflies, birds and animals...a nature lovers paradise from your front porch. The Costa Rican people are some of the happiest worldwide. Come visit to experience the warmth of this country both temperature and the treatment you receive to know why we had to move our lives here!

Best hosts around
Mark and Jessica were the absolute best hosts I have ever had when renting a home from this site. Not only were they both extremely responsive to my messages prior to my arrival, but they booked my excursions before I my trip. While I was there if I needed ANYTHING, they were always willing to help. I will definitely be back again. PuraVida!!
It was a pleasure to meet you and we certainly enjoyed your stay as well!!
Jessica and Marc
Beautiful and cozy!
This place was the best!! Stellar customer service from start to finish; we had some extenuating circumstances as my husband threw out his back the first day. The caretakers arranged massages, doctor visits and taxi rides as needed without question. He was able to tolerate only one dinner out on our anniversary and Luis was so kind as to drive us to and from. He brought breakfast to us almost every morning because my poor husband could literally not manage to walk. Breakfast was scrumptious and the coffee was the best ever!! We had to leave very early Sat am due to roadwork and he even left us snacks for the road and started coffee early. I could go on and on about how wonderful this place was :-) Walking distance to the market and town and the beach was literally across the street! Don’t pass this gem up!!
My husband and I had an incredible stay at Caribe Town! The property is beautiful and well cared for. Our bungalow felt private and was perfect for the two of us. Jessica and Mark took exceptional care of us- helping to organize dolphin watching, feeding us breakfast and recommending restaurants. We would return in a heartbeat and would recommend Caribe Town to our nearest and dearest. It doesn't hurt that the beach is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET.
Family getaway to the Caribbean Coast? This is the perfect destination!
There aren't enough superlatives to do justice to our stay at Caribe Town. We were in such good hands when we landed in the care of Jessica and Marc. They do everything you expect => very clean and well appointed accommodations, delicious and ample breakfasts, amenities that make a stay easier (laundry service available, kitchen access which makes traveling with kids so much easier, beach towels... we wanted for nothing.) And then... they go above and beyond what you require. They found a location for my husband to play tennis - no small accomplishment! They made special food to meet the dietary restrictions of our family. They are available and so happy to help with whatever you need. Jessica was super communicative before we arrived, answering questions and helping with directions. She made a massage appointment for me. (And this, people, is not to be missed. A massage by the magical Helena, surrounded by the jungle! If you are lucky as I was, it will rain. I listened to the rain while my troubles were massaged away. It was bliss.) They offered great restaurant recommendations and more... We were treated to Pipa, cut fresh out of the trees right there at Caribe Town. My son watched them chop a bunch of bananas from the tree before we'd even taken the suitcases from the car. We were vistied by sloth and toucans, iguanas and frogs. The birds and frogs and rain sang us to sleep at night. We explored the reef and tide pools and jumped monster waves in the sunshine during the day. The beautiful and minimally populated beach of Playa Cocles is just across the road. Perfect location. Perfect hosts. Costa Rica at its finest. Can I give them 6 stars?
The property was clean and the owner/ host was very nice
the bungalow was adequate, mattress comfortable but it had only screens for windows and was VERY loud with roosters, dogs barking, birds chirping and miscellaneous jungle animals doing their jungle noises. The host was nice, but the pool was not swims or at the time of our stay, and very small, kind of disappointing. Safe and clean.
We LOVE Caribe Town
My sisters and I stayed at Caribe town in one of the bungalows for 12 nights, and to say the least it was worth every penny. Jessica and Marc are the most gracious and wonderful hosts I have ever had when travelling. We were greeted the minute we arrived with warmth and smiles. Everyday spent they both had great suggestions for adventures for us to do. I have never stayed anywhere where the hosts go so much out of their way to make sure your comfortable and happy. I am allergic to gluten and Jessica and Marc went out of their way (literally drove onto a different town to find the right flour) to make me homemade gluten free bread, pancakes and even banana walnut muffins! Our bungalow was great for the three of us, and we always had exactly what we needed. This vacation was the best I have had, and I owe so much of it to Jessica and Marc for providing us with such a beautiful, safe, relaxing and VERY well kept place to stay. I highly recommend staying here, and already miss Caribe Town so much!
Thank you Jessica, Marc and the hard working staff of Caribe Town, the three sisters will definitely be back to see you again!
4km south of Puerto Viejo. 150 meters in front is soft waves for body surfing and great swimming and calm waters for coral pool exploring. Head to the north and we are within walking distance of great surfing as well. 9km north of Manzanillo. Easy access to everything!
