Want to wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys right outside your room? Then check out Hotel Kasha, Costa Rica! Hotel Kasha is located just a few kilometers down the road from Puerto Viejo. Puerto Viejo actually has eleven different habitats within the city, making this part of Costa Rica particularly dense with a wide variety of animals. Puerto Viejo is known all over Costa Rica as the best place to birdwatch, with over three hundred species of birds in the area!
And many of the these animals have seemed to make Hotel Kasha their home! Sloths, lizards, hummingbirds, other tropical birds, and tiny blue crabs are all common sights at the hotel. You really are staying in the middle of the jungle!
At Hotel Kasha, you stay in these cute little bungalows surrounded by pretty little gardens. There is a pool at the hotel as well as a jacuzzi. You should know that none of the jacuzzis in Costa Rica are actually hot, since the climate is so warm and muggy that no one would want to go in a hot jacuzzi. The pool is surrounded by well groomed gardens with amazing tropical flowers. Hotel Kasha is about a forty five minute walk from Puerto Viejo, but if you use one of the hotel’s bikes, it is only a short trip. You can also take a cab for about ten dollars one way. Hotel Kasha is also within walking distance from Punta Uva, one of the ten best beaches in all of the Caribbean!
Hotel Kasha offers all inclusive vacations that are perfect for honeymoons or other romantic getaways. For $1,200, you get five nights at the hotel, transportation to and from San Jose, and all of your meals. You also get unlimited drinks during bar hours and the use of the hotel bikes for free! Biking is the easiest way to get into Puerto Viejo, a cute little city which has tons of fun activities available such as scuba diving, surfing, nature tours, and kayak rentals. Hotel Kasha packages also include tours of the neighboring biological reserve, as well as a tour of Cahuita Trail.
The packages even includes a “Dolphin Safari” trip to the Gandoca National Wildlife Refuge where you will go body rafting down the Sixaola River. All the food at the hotel is also great. Hotel Kasha’s Magic Ginger Restaurant has everything from seafood to local Costa Rican style fare.
