• To stay at the Inn, you need to book the Insider’s Tour. You may take the Insider’s Tour without staying at the Inn, but it is convenient for your tour, comfy and a good value!
  • Open Tuesday–Saturday nights; closed Sunday & Monday nights.
  • Check-in 3:00PM / Check-out 12:00PM. Early check-in is available for 50% additional room rate, pending availability.
  • Stay up to two nights; book up to one year in advance.
  • Rates include breakfast, plus one complimentary bottle of water per guest. Please advise if you have special dietary needs (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, no added salt.)
  • All rooms are strictly non-smoking. There is a designated smoking area well away from the Inn.
  • Our property is gated and has a security attendant. If gate is closed, please knock for assistance.
  • WiFi is available in the common areas—no password required—but concrete block construction of guest rooms makes WiFi access difficult.
  • Our dining room is closed at night, and there are no stores nearby. For dinner, explore Cahuita (Sobre las Olas is a favorite; reservations recommended) or Puerto Viejo, where Amimodo and Café Viejo are popular options. We can arrange for a taxi to/from town if you make your request at reception before 3PM.
  • Once we confirm availability, we’ll send a PayPal invoice for the tour + a $25 USD 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 stay to enhance your visit. PayPal and all major credit cards accepted.
  • At check-out, 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.
