Casa Colibri is a charming rustic Caribbean style house surrounded by lush vegetation & abundant wildlife, yet only 200 yards from beautiful Cocles Beach. It is the best of both worlds, in the heart of the jungle & so close to the sea. Your very own tropical paradise at an affordable price!

Casa Colibri and Casa Mariposa are in the tiny village of Cocles on the Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. The nearest town that you will find in most guidebooks is Puerto Viejo de Talamanca which is about 2 miles north.

Within 10 miles of the houses there are more than 6 incredible beaches (the closest, Playa Cocles, a lazy 4 minute walk from the houses), two national parks with hiking trails, world class surfing, snorkeling along a very active coral reef about 25 feet from the water line on Punta Uva beach and in Manzanillo. Guests are invited to spend the day at the Noa Beach Club, enjoy lunch and beverage service on the beach. Sign up for zipline canopy tours, indigenous reserve walks, visit botanical and butterfly gardens, tour the jaguar reserve and sloth rescue center, take yoga classes and go kayaking - most of which you can do on your own or with a guide or group. Or, just swing in a hammock on the terrace, where you’ll spot toucans, sloths, butterflies, howler monkeys, aguati & hummingbirds!

The region offers really fantastic food. A few of our local favorites are El Refugio Grill, GypSea, Cafe Rico, Tiare, Stasha con Fusion, Chili Rojo, Bread & Chocolate Cafe & Bamboocha. Some of the finest dining in the area can be found in Cocles, a short 5 minute walk from Casa Colibri and Casa Mariposa at La Pecora Nera. Also highly recommended for cocktails is Le Cameleon. There are a few well stocked grocery stores nearby, several wonderful cafes & don't miss the farmers' market in Puerto Viejo on Saturday.

We have teamed with Habitat Property Management. To our guests, this means you will have assistance with check in as well as all your requests during your stay.

Staying at Casa Colibri was a tonic!

Warm winds, floating butterflies, lush jungle right to the ocean's edge. The little house was clean, comfortably appointed, and welcoming. We hope to come back!

Perfect getaway!

Casa Colibri is a perfect getaway in the most beautiful part of Costa Rica. The house is tucked away so that you feel you're living in the jungle, but within a few minutes walk is one of the best coastlines in the world. We saw a lot of wildlife just from the terrace, sloths, butterflies, hummingbirds, dart frogs and even an ocelot - a rarely seen wild cat. We've been recommending Casa Colibri and Cocles to all of our friends and look forward to visiting again.

An unforgettable vacation!

What an incredible trip! Peter and I had an unforgettable vacation, and can hardly wait to go back. Casa Colibri was lovely - everything we hoped it would be and then some. We saw more wildlife from the terrace than in the three national parks we visited, including the resident sloth. We did the botanical gardens, went on hikes and soaked in the laid back atmosphere. Thanks again for everything, we will certainly be back. 




Your vacation getaway is waiting.
