Accommodation:expand_more

All the accommodation has its own distinctive theme and is a nod to the owner's zest for art and love for the culture of the area. The interiors have a relaxed bohemian decadence and are decorated with soft, white colours, with the occasional bright tone flickering into view.

The mouthwatering food is all locally sourced and is an exceptional fusion of classic international dishes, with a hint of Afro-Caribbean panache.

Hotel Experiences

This leisurely activity is synonymous with the culture of the Puerto Viejo area, where you'll usually find more bikes than cars, so we highly recommend jumping on a "banana bike" and doing a spot of beach hopping, where the dazzling, white beaches of Playa Cocles and Playa Punta Uva are just a coconuts throw away, or you could banana bike your way into the vibrant town of Puerto Viejo, either choice will bring a twinkle of joy to your stay at Aguas Claras Boutique Hotel.


Wildlife Encounters

Take a mysterious journey down the river that the locals refer to as "Eduardo Creek". This incredible stretch of glistening waterway is home to a stunning array of wildlife, from exotic birds to turtles, monkeys, sloths and iguanas, so keep your eyes peeled while you enjoy the natural rhythmic chorus of the fauna that inhabit this stunning area of rainforest.


Weddings

Not all couples like big, bold and brash weddings, so the exquisitely intimate setting of Hotel Aguas Claras offers a beautiful contrast. This modern bohemian paradise has a charming, elegance that could become the backdrop of your special day. The hotel offers a magical beachfront setting at Play Chiquita and Dalime Beach Club and can accommodate up to 40 guests; where during your stay, you will all have full private use of the hotel.
