About Aguas Claras
Aguas Claras feels like a pristine white canvas which has been given character and life by vibrant colour and careful attention to detail. This Victorian-Caribbean property is blissfully tropical under the blue skies which bless Costa Rica.
Expect a friendly and calm welcome when you arrive. The resort is not open to children under 12 and as such is focused on peace, serenity and a complete escape to nature. For anyone looking to rediscover themselves away from the hustle and bustle of life, this is a restorative retreat.
Choose to stay either in one of the six bungalows or six themed suites. All of these instil both a sense of the Caribbean and pure comfort. Decorated and furnished to a high standard, these rooms reflect the surrounding natural beauty and also are home to eclectic handpicked art which adds personality.
When it comes to dining, both local and international tastes are catered for in the Papaya Restaurant which is laid back and relaxed. Eat right next to the pool and nature, while sipping on your favourite sundowner. You can also unwind further in Casa Gandhi, a dedicated yoga and meditation area.
If you want to be a bit more active, there are plenty of activities at the resort. There’s the opportunity to take surf lessons on Puerto Viejo, which can accommodate any level of surf proficiency and the chance to hike in Cahuita National Park to see the local town and wildlife. Combine the land and the ocean on a sea kayak and rainforest hiking experience in Punta Uva to see monkey, sloth, colourful birds, river turtle, bat and iguana.
