My wife and I were here for a week at the end of January 2012 (80's-90's daily). We love this area and recommend TikiVillas as one of the best places to stay while in Uvita. Need 4x4 to stay here.
Thomas and Cindy are delightful hosts, the tranquil atomsphere they create in the main house reminds you that you're on vacation as soon as you arrive.
Our Villa (#5) had AC and an outdoor "jungle shower" which is really a fun and special experience. Having two showers was a great treat for us. Very luxurious!
This Villa is the end of the row and has a beautiful view of the ocean and primary rain forest. In fact, it is set in the side of a jungle mountain right in the jungle. Just a quick walk to the car park or take another path to the main house for the pool, breakfast and drinks. Great kitchenette easy to keep clean and efficient. Bathroom was all beautiful stone with a walk in closet attached to it, great for two people. Two chairs on a open balcony with sliding glass doors. Citronella plug ins come in every room and work wonders. Not one bug bite from inside the room.
Toucans almost everyday, you start to recognize the song then spot them in the trees right off your balcony. White face monkeys made their way across the mountain a few times right behind the Villas. This place is about lounging by the pool or on your deck enjoying the immense jungle views. Gorgeous beaches are all up and down the coastal highway, take your choice and explore them all. Be sure to ask Thomas for suggestions and local favorites. Highlights were Dominical, Hotel Leonore Beach Club, Las Ventanas Beach and in Ojochol (25min drive away), Citrus Restaurant, Exotica Restaurant and Yiang Yiang Restaurant.
You are in a coastal rain forest area with limited built up areas. This is an adventure at every turn kind of vacation; Route 27 goes N and S from TikiVillas and you can cruise up and down every day. Beaches are endless with very few people. You can find a town or supermarket when you need all charming.
About 3hrs from San Jose airport. Nice ride, easier with GPS.
Once you get here you won't regret it....thanks again Thomas and Cindy!!
