Don't be afraid of the jungle!
We are not really far away from civilization...
Of course there are bugs up here, but not many
and luckily not many mosquitos neither!
You can bring your own mosquito net or rent one for $2 per stay!

We are child friendly because we have a little daughter, too.
But the property is not 100% child safe...
Please keep in mind:
The hostel building is made out of wood and everything is pretty open - ceilings are not closed for example.
That gives it a very special atmoshere and that's why most guests love it here but privacy is limited and bugs may get into your room...
Because we are a little up the hill and further away from a supermarket we recommend buying your groceries on the way in Uvita 'downtown' before checking in.
Our communal kitchen can be used until 9pm.
If you arrive late or are far too lazy to go shopping, we won't let you starve but we are no restaurant. There is a good one at the waterfall (7 minute walk) and another one down the hill (15 minute walk).
Please bring a flashlight
and swimming suits for the waterfall!
We are a eco friendly hostel.
We have 2 cats and a dog. We hope you're not allergic!
We are NO party hostel!
But we like music...

Cascada Verde is up the hill from Uvita central going up the road at the bank BCR.
Just follow the signs to the waterfall of Uvita and turn left at the last crossing before the entrance to the waterfall by following our signs to Cascada Verde.

Coming from the north turn left at the banc BCR, coming from the south turn right at the BCR.

Arriving by bus:
The earliest direct bus leaves San Jose from the Tracopa-Terminal at 6:00am and the latest at 4:30pm. Buses run regularly.
Duration: 4 hrs, ticket: 14 US$.

Just a tip: We recommend buying your groceries on the way to our hostel in Uvita 'downtown' next to the BCR bank because there is no supermarket closer to our hostel.

You'll get a taxi in front of the BCR/supermarket usually anytime.

And of course you can always contact us before arriving and we will be glad to explain with details how to get here.

Our contact details will be in your booking confirmation email.

Located Near

Location Cascada Verde:

We are up on a hill in Uvita de Osa,
next to the waterfall, surrounded by a huge jungle garden but still easy to reach.

Uvita is located at the beautiful pacific coast of Puntarenas. Here yo'll find the entrance to the unique national park Marino Ballena
which is famous for whale and dolphin watching (seasonal), diving, snorkeling and nicest beaches...

The closest beach is about one hour walk away from our hostel but you can take a taxi for around 6 US$.
