Costa Rica’s south Caribbean Coast is a magical place. South of Limon, the southern Caribbean beach towns of Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo are ideal destinations for a Costa Rica vacation. Puerto Viejo Costa Rica is the most developed area with a thriving multicultural community, international restaurants, and a diverse array of hotels.
Not as well traveled, simply because Costa Rica’s larger Pacific Coast gets most of the attention, the southern Caribbean keeps a quieter, more peaceful tone. Surfers know about Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Gandoca, renowned for their great waves. Scuba divers and snorkelers certainly know about the marvels of the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea and coral reefs at the Cahuita National Park and offshore from the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. Beach lovers delight in having the black and golden sands on the beaches almost to themselves.
Le Caméléon (“The Chameleon”) is one of the finest hotels on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast that caters to upscale travelers. The unique boutique hotel with a relaxed vibe is across the street from the beautiful golden sand Playa Cocles, where the hotel has a private beach club.
Le Caméléon blends steamy jungle with modern architectural design. The hotel’s decor is pure white with lively splashes of color in cushions, wall paintings, and strategically-placed colored LED lights. Like a chameleon, these decorative elements change every day. Guest rooms follow the theme, being bright white with vividly hued wall hangings, bathmats, towels and bed pillows that rotate colors daily.
At Le Caméléon, an Enchanting Hotel Costa Rica, you will enjoy a serene and relaxing experience in the rainforest, while being pampered in sophisticated warmth with a sense of fun.
