Southern Caribbean Hotels

The South Caribbean Coast is much less developed than Costa Rica’s Pacific side. You won’t find any big-name luxury resorts here. Caribbean hotels are generally locally owned with basic amenities. Travelers can expect to stay in lodges, tent camps, or bungalows. Many do not have A/C. These locally owned properties have an authentic, rustic charm rich with the surrounding culture and style of Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast. Personalized touches at each individual lodge give guests a unique glimpse into the lifestyle of the region. An added bonus? Caribbean travel tends to be less expensive since the area is not as developed and therefore not as frequently visited by tourists. If you’re looking for an adventure trip a bit off the beaten path, the South Caribbean Coast is a great option.
