    Puerto Viejo de Limón
    Day 3 Transfer by car

    Today your transport will take you from the mountains, over to the Caribbean shores of Costa Rica. Along the way you will drive by pineapple plantations, small towns and tropical exotic scenarios.
    It is not hard to spot wildlife along the way being a countless number of birds and some sloths the most common to find along the way.

    You will stay for the next 3 nights at Cariblue Beach and Jungle Resort (3 Nights) - The Cariblue Beach and Jungle Resort faces to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea in the southern part of Costa Rica and reaches out over 5 acres of earth inside of a pristine forest. It offers pleasant accommodations in 45 different rooms and is proud of a very wide range of facilities and comforts (two car-parkings, two big swimming pools, two jacuzzi's, a rancho-restaurant, a beach bar, a swimming pool - bar, a spa, a crafts shop, a surf school, a bikes- and cycle rickshaw-rental, several chill out open spaces and much more) as well it has a direct access to the white sands beach.

    The Cariblue Beach and Jungle Resort offers the relaxing environment of the uncontaminated and colorfully frequented Playa Cocles (together with the neighboring Punta Uva and Playa Negra, one of the most beautiful and most famous beaches facing to the Southern Caribbean Sea of Costa Rica - and certainly the most loved by surfers) as well as the unforgettable experience of an eco-friendly lodging among centuries-old trees in the heart of the rainforest of Talamanca, near the Wildlife Refuge Gandoca - Manzanillo.

    Because of these characteristics, it represents most assuredly the biggest and best equipped Resort near the little town of Puerto Viejo, in the district of Cahuita - a place famous in the whole world as astonishing melting-pot of Native-indigenous, Afro Caribbean and European cultures.
