Individual (3) casitas set on a secluded, pristine stretch of the Rio Higueron. Flora and fauna abound. Outstanding in every way.

Stayed here for a week and couldn't be more pleased, the surroundings and wildlife you experience are something from a premium wildlife tour but at Casita del rio you just need to look out your window. The casita itself was immaculate and very well decorated throughout and was cleaned on a regular basis. It included a kitchen with all appliance...

The days we lived at Casitas del Rio were by far the best of the three weeks we spent in Costa Rica. Wonderful, comfortable and spotless clean cabins (with proper mosquito nets) surrounded by a lavish gardens in the middle of nowhere, just in front of a creek, with plenty of open air space to have breakfast with the hummingbirds...

About the neighbourhood
Our location is near the town of Uvita, just a 15 minute drive away from Dominical, situated in a hidden river cove between the Talamanca mountains and the Pacific ocean, 400 Meters East of the Costanera Highway, below the Vista Ballena Hotel. We are right on the south bank of the Morete River.

Our area offers stunning mountain and coastal scenery, adventure tours, hiking, kayaking, zip-lining, whale and dolphin tours, bird-watching, horse- back riding, hidden waterfalls and swimming holes, deserted beaches, surfing, ATV tours, and more! We are 5 minutes away from a small town with restaurants, banks, and grocery stores, yet you feel far away from it all in our private river cove surrounded by primary forest.

We highly recommend you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle to reach our accommodatio...
