Kaya's Place Hotel
Kaya's Place, located on Playa Negra (Black Beach) 200 meters north of the small but diverse beach town of Puerto Viejo de Limon, offers a comfortable setting for the casual traveler to relax and enjoy the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. Built in the Afro-Caribbean "Rustico" style, the hotel is artistic and unique. Local woods and materials have been used in their natural state, making each room different and beautiful. Every space you encounter will be a pleasurable experience. Kaya's Place is part of the growing eco-tourism industry which supports the preservation of almost 2 million square meters of primary rainforest. Taxes from this industry support the many national reserves and efforts to maintain natural resources.
The 26-room lodge offers several options ranging from basic shared-bath sleeping rooms, rooms with a private bath and hot water shower, deluxe garden rooms, 3 suites with kitchen facilities and a two-story private cabin which can accommodate up to nine people in three bedrooms, a full kitchen and two outdoor decks. The grounds are made up of a tropical landscape garden which features lush flora native to the area. The plants and gardens create a tropical maze to wander through to our pool table, hammocks and various communal areas. A free wireless internet café is available to our guests. An onsite restaurant and bar is open daily. Playa Negra offers the safest beach in the area for swimming, snorkeling and learning to surf.
Located only 200 meters from the town's entrance, the lodge offers a location away from the hustle and bustle of town, but it is an easy five-minute walk to Puerto Viejo's wide variety of restaurants and artesian shops. We can assist in lining up jungle hikes, canopy tours, snorkeling, white water rafting and other activities with certified local guides. Our staff speaks Español, English and Deutsch.
