About Hotel Aguas Claras

Hotel Aguas Claras is an eclectic oasis where nature, arts and community harmoniously intertwine—an inspiring hideaway that will send you back home refreshed and anew. Nuzzled amidst tropical gardens and turquoise blue waters, this is what easy-going Caribbean living is all about—meaning you’ll never have to cross the road to get to the beach. This is also where you’ll find a completely unique side of Costa Rica. Authentic and under-the-radar. Curious why other globe-trotting travelers love Puerto Viejo? Read on. The life work of a local Costa Rican artist, Hotel Aguas Claras offers modern, characterful accommodation, with every corner of the boutique resort designed to deliver the Caribbean experience at its very best.

What We Love

Biking is a must here! Everyone rides bikes in Puerto Viejo and you’ll see both locals and foreigners alike riding their “banana bikes” on the main road. It’s easy to get around on bike because the road is mostly flat and connects you from one beach to the next. And if there is one place you must absolutely bike to, it is Punta Uva. With one of the nicest beaches in the area, it’s also the best place for kayaking tours. You’ll get close to wildlife as you quietly move through the water. This is still an “under-the-radar” tour, so you’ll often find yourself alone on the river enjoying the peace and quiet of the rainforest. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit so you can go for a swim at Punta Uva beach. The waters are warm and calm, with no rocks or reefs. Plus, feel free to use the complimentary “banana” bicycles to bike there. Other curated experiences include theme nights, beach bonfires, Live DJ & music nights, yoga and meditation classes, cocktail and cooking classes, and much more.
