  • To stay at the Inn, you need to book the Insider’s Tour. You may certainly take the Insider’s Tour without staying at the Inn, but it is convenient, comfortable and a good value!
  • Open Tuesday–Saturday nights; closed Sunday & Monday nights.
  • Check-in 2:00PM. Early check-in is available for 50% additional room rate, pending availability.
  • Check-out 12:00PM. At this time, please pay for your room, 13% sales tax and any other expenses. Major credit cards, PayPal and cash—we accept US dollars and Costa Rican colones.
  • Stay up to three nights. Book up to one year in advance.
  • Rates include continental breakfast on our riverside veranda and one complimentary bottled water for each guest.
  • Per strict Costa Rica law, our entire facility is non-smoking. Guests must go outside our front gate to smoke.
  • Our property is gated and has a security attendant. If front gate is closed, please knock for assistance.A quiet table surfside at Sobre las Olas
  • WiFi is available in the common areas—no password required—but concrete block construction of guest rooms makes WiFi access difficult.
  • For meals, explore Cahuita or Puerto Viejo. Sobre las Olas, Amimodo and Café Viejo are popular options. We can arrange for a taxi to/from dinner if you make your request before 3PM at reception.
  • Once we confirm availability, we’ll send a PayPal invoice for the tour + a US$25 Facilities Fee per room/night. This fee holds your reservation and is not deducted from your final bill. It helps us provide you a clean, comfortable place to enhance your visit.



Taking the Insider's Tour is required to book a stay at the Buttercup Inn. If you prefer the Buttercup Tour ($30 per adult), please check TripAdvisor.com for hotels in Puerto Viejo.
