Looking to stay right on the beach or fancy a mini-break in the jungle? Then get yourself to Selina Puerto Viejo, a chilled, eco-friendly beachside spot shaded by palm trees. Here you can kick back completely, and experience the sounds and tastes of Costa Rica: great reggae music, spicy Caribbean cuisine, and croaking bullfrogs at dusk.
Lodging is in tipis built in traditional style with hand-made materials from neighbouring indigenous communities. Inside there’s plenty of space under a palm-frond roof, and each one is simply decked out with cane furniture.
Daily life on site gently drifts between the outdoor swimming pool and the beach, where you can rent boards, take surfing lessons – Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is famed for its surfing beaches – or try your hand at snorkelling and paddleboarding. Back at camp, make the most of a high-speed wifi connection in the co-working space, join in the global book swap or catch a yoga class.
There’s a shared kitchen, but if cooking is too much like hard work, you can simply head to the restaurant instead and choose from a menu of takeaway pizza, regional favourites and homemade desserts, with artisan dark-ground coffee available all day too. There’s also loads going on after dark, with a calendar of music gigs and calypso sessions, so you can dance the night away with fellow guests from across the world.
