Our third property, The White Cottage, is build under huge trees and next to the pool. The ocean views from its large verandas are terrific. The cottage is full of light; its style & design truly reflect the owner’s ideas for beach comfort. This cottage is perfect for honeymoon vacations.
The beautiful pool area, surrounded by jungle and gardens, includes a pavilion with swinging daybeds and a leisure area with chaises and umbrellas.
The pool area is the perfect spot to see large families of capuchin and howling monkeys raiding the treetops and to observe the amazing toucans on nearby fruit trees.
The property is interesting to explore. It consists of authentic tropical jungle with bromelia gardens added around each house and plants with lots of colors and fragrance. The numerous cacao trees and ginger plants inspired the name, “Ginger & Cacao”.
The property is maintained by caretakers. For your service and convenience they reside in a separate cottage on the property by the gate.
‘ Ginger & Cacao” is perfectly located at just short walk to Punta Uva Beach, one of the most striking in the area. A rare place still kept as natural as possible, with a minimum negative impact of over-development. Here is where the jungle meets the white sand beach with its emeralds waters and the almond trees provide a natural shade. It’s not crowded and is very safe for swimming, kayaking and snorkeling.
In Punta Uva one feels the complete connection with nature. There is nothing more beautiful than to get on a bicycle and go for an early morning ride to Gandoca- Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. At this time of the day, there is so much life and activity in the jungle. Howling monkeys call from the tree tops, butterflies and birds fly around searching for food.
Punta Uva is a very private area, removed from the traffic and congestion in areas closer to Puerto Viejo. There are few excellent restaurants and the best supplied in the area grocery store. Within only a 10 min drive, if you choose, you can quickly get to Puerto Viejo.
At night, the action happens here, in Puerto Viejo. It might look a bit shabby, but give it some time and it will grow on you. The somewhat sleepy village turns vibrant, full of life and music, with the smell of food coming from all directions. Ocean-front bars blast reggae and calypso. Shops stay open till late hours.
We are open for business year around.
We, at “Ginger & Cacao”, not only offer an elegant place to stay in the middle of the jungle, but more importantly, we offer a fantastic and memorable experience in Caribbean Costa Rica. We can plan tours for you and guide you to locations that are off the touristic maps. We want you to enjoy your vacation while staying with us and leave with beautiful memories. We understand hospitality, we’ll take care of you.
Hope to see you soon! Best, Zvezda
