After researching beaches in the Guanacaste I decided to visit Playa Negra and Callejones. I knew that I wanted great surf away from the crowds of Tamarindo. After researching affordable places to stay I booked 7 nights at Casa Mymy. This was my first time traveling to Costa Rica and I really didn’t know what to expect. I was nervous that I would find myself in a unwelcoming situation. The moment I arrived at Casa Mymy my concerns were gone. I was welcomed by Mymy with a smile and she helped me get situated for my stay. The hostel Is set on a beautiful plot of land with a jungle setting. You can see monkeys, iguanas, squirrels and many other cool animals right on her property. It is in walking distance to Playa Negra beach and close to some restaurants if you feel like venturing out for a meal. Mymy offered to give me a ride to the grocery store to stock up on some food which was very helpful because I wanted to stay on budget. There are two refrigerators in the kitchen so plenty of storage for food and drinks. The beds, couches, and hammocks are super comfy. The place is very clean and she has laundry service if you need for a small fee. The main purpose for my holiday was to catch some waves, play at the beach, and meet new people. I spent most of my time surfing, sunbathing, collecting shells, and watching sunsets. The beauty of the setting sun over the Pacific Ocean is beyond words! I met many wonderful people. Some were just there for a day and others for longer. On Christmas Mymy asked if I wanted to join her and some friends for dinner and she prepared a amazing meal with a delicious French dessert. Whether you need a night or a longer stay you cannot go wrong booking at Casa Mymy. She is very respectful and goes out of her way to take care of her guests. Her amazing pets roaming around are the extra bonus that will make you feel right at home! I am entirely grateful that I trusted my intuition and stayed at Casa Mymy. Josh (Minnesota) 12/23 to 12/30

The hostel is amazing, the house it self if beautiful and clean, located in a jungle just a short walk from the surf. If you’re looking for Pura Vida, this is the place. The owner herself is so helpful and lovely. After staying here it is easy to see why so many people extend there stays and come back!
