Quiet Hostels for Couples and Solo Travellers in Puerto Viejo and Cahuita

Quiet Hostels for Couples and Solo Travellers in Puerto Viejo and Cahuita
Puerto Viejo has managed to hold on to its Afro-Caribbean vibe despite the growth in tourism across Costa Rica and in the town itself. Located on the beach, the town of Puerto Viejo is actually only one of several small towns in this stretch of shoreline that extends northwest from the Panama border. All along the main road, restaurants, bars, and accommodation options can be found hidden in the jungle or on the beach. Staying in the town itself offers many options, but if you're looking for paradise, so many great hostels can be found just a few kilometers away.

If you head north of Puerto Viejo, Cahuita (and the national park) are nice to visit if you're looking for an untouched jungle paradise on the beach. South of Puerto Viejo are several smaller towns with beach access and a much quieter vibe.

Another fairly new hostel, the Kalunai is located in the middle of the town of Puerto Viejo, just steps from everything in town and the beach. Both private rooms and dorms (with a female only option) are available in this newly renovated building. The outdoor shared kitchen and eating area also provides hammocks for relaxing and socializing with other guests. Although they are in town, they are a couple of blocks away from most of the bars and restaurants in town, so the atmosphere is still quiet.
