For a longer stay, close to town, you might want to check out Cashew Hill Jungle Cottages (www.cashewhilllodge.co.cr; tel. 2750-0001). On a hill just on the outskirts of town, these are simple but immaculate individual one- and two-bedroom bungalows, with kitchenettes. True budget hounds will find an abundance of basic hotels and cabinas in downtown Puerto Viejo in addition to those listed in this section. Of these, the 10-room Hotel Pura Vida (http://www.hotel-puravida.com/en; tel. 2750-0002) is worth a look.
