Perched on a secluded 1.5 acre lot and surrounded by infinite pristine nature, LPM is a pool getaway of palm trees and endless Instagrams tucked away in the Gandoca Manzanillo wildlife reserve. Like Tulum, Punta Uva is destined to be a favorite amongst bohemians. We recommend a 4x4 vehicle, to access the property. About your place Los Proyectos Moderno is located near Playa Chiquita, just outside of Puerto Viejo, Limón. Perched on a secluded five acre lot and surrounded by infinite pristine nature, you’ll enjoy endless spectacular views as you discover all the amazing wildlife Costa Rica has to offer. Upon entering the house, you’ll be greeted with lush jungle just beyond your private observation deck, complete with plunge pool, lounge chairs, and outdoor ceiling fans. Open up the custom accordion folding doors across the entire length of the house and enjoy the ultimate experience in indoor/outdoor jungle living. Continue exploring the house and you’ll find a master bedroom including a king size bed and private bathroom, and a second bedroom with two twin beds (which can be pushed together) and another private bathroom. The kitchen houses a refrigerator with freezer, an induction cooktop, coffee maker, blender, cookware, dinnerware, glassware, and silverware. Less than fifteen minutes from the shore, this house is located 5.5 kilometers (3.4 miles) off the main road, up a dirt mountain road. Nestled in the jungle, quite secluded, and surrounded by trees housing monkeys, sloths, and tucans, you’re a scenic 20 minute drive to the heart of Puerto Viejo. Although most vehicles would make it up the dirt road, it is highly recommend that our guests rent a four-wheel-drive vehicle as the road can get quite muddy during extended periods of rainfall. It is important to note that this is quite literally a house in the middle of the jungle. Although nature lovers will rejoice when waking to the sounds of howler monkeys and occasionally watching them migrate through the trees, the jungle is also home to much smaller animals, including insects, reptiles and amphibians. We ask that you please respect Mother Nature and all of her inhabitants, big and small. Fires are never allowed. Water pumps directly to the house from a well on the property, allowing fully functional kitchen and restrooms. Please note that paper towels, toilet paper, and hygiene products should NEVER be flushed in the toilets, and all garbage and waste should be packed neatly so as not to attract local dogs or other animals. Due to the secluded location, wifi is not currently available and your cell phone service will be limited. Take pleasure in the ultimate rest and relaxation experience in the privacy of your own jungle home, and enjoy reliable wifi and cell service all throughout town. What guests can access Bask in indoor/outdoor living as you open up your glass accordion doors and expand your living space right onto your private observation deck, complete with plunge pool (with massage jets) and lounge chairs. Nature lovers and adventurists are free to explore the wild thicket of the jungle and discover all nature has to offer. Your interaction with guests The host will happily answer any questions you may have regarding travel to Puerto Viejo and your stay in the jungle house. Recommendations and guidance are available for restaurants, tours, transportation, and things to do. Other things to note The nearest international airport is in San Jose: Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría (SJO). Puerto Viejo is approximately a 4 to 5 hour drive from San Jose in regular traffic. Rental cars are available in San Jose through most large rental car agencies. It is highly recommend for our guests to have a 4X4 vehicle. Although most vehicles could may the drive, four-wheel-drive may be required during heavier rain, which can be unpredictable. If you don’t want to drive from San Jose to Puerto Viejo, private cars, taxis, and plane/helicopter charters are available. However, you will still be required to rent a vehicle in Puerto Viejo (Alamo or Adobe only) as most taxis will not drive up the mountain road. About the neighborhood Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a popular tourist destination on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, not far from the Panamanian border at Sixaola. Known in the surfing community for the biggest and most powerful waves in Costa Rica, it is also home to some of the most spectacular beaches, such as Playa Chiquita, Playa Negra, and Punta Uva, which can be found throughout the stretch between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. The townspeople are made up of native Costa Ricans (“ticos”), a substantial Jamaican population, as well as a number of Europeans who have emigrated to the area. More
