A posh mid-range option, Cariblue Bungalows has the feel of a tropical country club. The pool is the biggest in the region, with a swim-up bar; cobblestone walkways cut through manicured grounds and gardens; and amenities ranging from the SoleLuna restaurant to a tropical bar, lounge area, and game room. You’ll find a range of rooms, from budget options with no air-conditioning to deluxe rooms, individual bungalows, and large suites. The superior bungalows, which are wooden cabins raised off the ground, and featuring spacious private balconies, are perhaps the best value. Cariblue is located directly in front of Playa Cocles, about 1.6km (1 mile) south of Puerto Viejo.
