Aguas Claras is an elegant beachfront hotel along the Caribbean Coast at the Playa Chiquita in Puerto Viejo. With the beautiful Braulio Carrillo National Park nearby, expect occasional encounters with exotic birds and butterflies as well. Stay at the Pavlova Sweets (yes, you read that right), a lovable Victorian row house complex that comes with most modern amenities. The bright and chic ensuite rooms are all individually decorated around lively , colorful themes. Walk into your private wooden deck and lounge area that’s fitted with an outdoor open shower and styled like a semi-open Moroccan terrace top. There’s much to do around the property and the little seaside town. Book yourself at the in-house spa after a day spent outdoors or relax in the outdoor pool sipping delicious cocktails. Take long walks by the beach or meditate at the wellness center. Your island escape would be incomplete without the sumptuous meals served at the in-house restaurant.
