<p id="#5">Eco Vita Cabinas — Playa Bejuco</p>

We stayed just one week at Eco Vita Cabinas in Playa Bejuco and wished we had stayed two! It’s definitely on our “favorites of Costa Rica” list. Three attributes sealed the deal — the bed, the pool and the ocean. Excellent king size bed (not always easy to find in Costa Rica), lovely onsite pool with all-day filtered sun and shade and the ocean’s edge at Playa Bejuco is just a lazy 5 minute walk on an unpaved lane. With a generous weekly discount we paid under $50 per night in January 2019.

And there were other lovely features. We made breakfast and dinner every night in a snug, adequately equipped kitchenette. There’s a big shower in a nice bathroom. Securely screened door to keep bugs out. A sweet private front porch that was cool all day. Eco Vita only rents four cabinas at the time we stayed but there are plans for another building. Even then, there will be plenty of room for all in the fabulous pool.

The unit is a bit snug for luggage and foodstuffs. Even said, this is still an up-to-two week destination in our opinion! Unwind, bring a book. And there are services (shops, groceries and restaurants) very nearby.

With vigorous, cool walks on the beach at sunrise and sunset we earned relaxing either in the pool or under the beach palms just being lazy. Shannon at the front desk is an absolute gem. Very ecologically minded.

In our opinion, this destination is a super-value deal near a lovely Costa Rican Pacific-side beach!
