vacation rental description

Playa Chiquita is an idyllic beach village, ideally situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. This quaint location could not be more convenient for the travelers, whether bound for an eye opening experience of nature, wildlife, culture or just pure relaxation. The village is located on the edge of the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, a protected nature reserve which is home to numerous species of animals, birds and plants. It is also only 4 miles South of the happening town of Puerto Viejo, the epitome of a laid back Caribbean place, a melting pot of cultures and a great place for contracting tourist services.

Casa Mango is part of Casas La Selvatica Vacation Rentals. At Casas La Selvatica we offer two comfortable homes, immersed in nature and surrounded by wildlife, yet only minutes away from a lovely beach, good grocery store and restaurants. The setting is ideal for couples or families wishing for more than a hotel room within easy reach of countless low ecological impact recreational activities (wildlife watching, coral reef snorkeling and scuba diving, jungle zip-line treks, river rafting, etc.). Our property and the surrounding area are home to an incredible array of wildlife: you will most likely watch howler monkeys in their search for food, toucans or sloths, right from the comfort of your porch. The houses are located minutes away from a couple of the best surfing beaches in the Caribbean. Your bilingual host on site are available to assist with information about the area, bookings for activities/tours and offer detailed attention to your comfort throughout your vacation.

Casa Mango is our budget accommodation option. It was created with the goal of offering affordable, basic, but comfortable accommodation to travelers who prefer to spend more on discovering the area, rather than on accommodation itself. It is a self contained one bedroom house, featuring a bedroom with double bed, ceiling fan and large walk-in closet, a bathroom with hot shower, a kitchen with stove, refrigerator and basic kitchenware, and an outdoor living area with a day-bed, comfy chair, dining table and of course, a hammock! (please note that the two burner stove and small refrigerator pictured in the kitchen have been replaced with full size appliances).

If you seek serenity, while enjoying the convenience of a picture perfect beach and services within a few minutes walk, this is the place for you.
