EL PRINCIPITO IN PUERTO VIEJO

PREVIOUS / NEXT

TRAVELS by KRISS on 30 november 2015

We want to review the exquisite house we stayed in during this trip in Puerto Viejo Costa Rica.
This is called El Principito and this is an all opened house (meaning there are no doors or windows per say but a gate, a fence and wooden panes to lock the windows.

There are many reasons why you should definitely stay at this wonderful place if you happen to go to Puerto Viejo and this is our non exhaustive list :

- Jean Marie and Ghislaine, who run the place are the kindest most helpful hosts you can hope for.
They have lived in Costa Rica for more than 10 years and know everyone around.
They will give you excellent tips, bread they make, and their friendship.
That of true people who are a species on the verge of extinction nowadays.

- The house is a heaven, in the middle of the jungle when you open you windows.
You will feel at peace and you have a view that gives plenty of room for the sun to shine and feel breathing.
The jungle is right here but not overpowering, just enchanting.


- Only staying in the house you will undoubtedly spot and photograph easily : toucans, hummingbirds, iguanas, parrots, vultures, maybe the neighbor sloth and hear the howler monkeys every day a few times a day.

- You are at the best possible place in Puerto Viejo, close to Playa Cocles.
The beach is 5 minutes away and the mini market is 3 minutes away and has anything you need (at price of gold but this is the same anywhere here).

- You have neighbors and feel safe ! The next door neighbors are a couple of french/cuban guys who run a bed and breakfast and they are very very kind as well.
All the other neighbors are mostly expats and there is a small kindergarten in the middle of the street.
Also the street is a cul de sac.

- Inside the house, everything is beautiful and simple.
The house is practical at the exception of tiny ants that terrorize the neighborhood ! I’m kidding they are not dangerous but they are everywhere and bite so be extra careful not to let any food out at any time !

- Anyone could easily picture themselves writing a book or taking pictures or listening to music all day in this place.

- It comes with 4 bikes which are not brand new but work and Jean Marie takes good care of them.
It will save you the price of renting the bikes.

- You are minutes away from the best street fruit seller (after the bridge going to Manzanillo) and to the best beaches in Puerto Viejo.
- You are not far from the touristic police.

Ok, I am certainly missing a few things but this is a good list of why you should stay there.
If you have any enquiries, you are welcome to post them in the comment section so that people can benefit from your questions and our answers !
