What to Expect

  • Attention to detail. From its world-class service to the gardens, this hotel takes care of every detail.
  • Communion with nature. Aguas Claras is a great spot to forget about the outside world.
  • Beach access. A short, shaded stroll is all it takes to reach the ocean.

What NOT to Expect

  • Total isolation. The hotel has other neighboring houses. Puerto Viejo town is also nearby.
  • Resort feel. This is an extremely boutique hotel, with only 12 rooms available.

Located almost at the end of Costa Rica, Aguas Claras Hotel is a boutique on the famous Caribbean Coast. It’s only a 10-minute drive South from the town of Puerto Viejo (Old Port).

Walk into a 1.5-hectare world full of relaxation and natural beauty. Aguas Claras is a place to disconnect from the noise of everyday life and reconnect with nature and the self.

Relaxing & Resting at Aguas Claras Hotel

Aguas Claras is a peaceful haven in the tropics surrounded by nature.

Its artistic flair and historical design stimulate the senses on every corner, while its soothing atmosphere encourages the rejuvenation of both the body and soul.

All elements stand in harmony with the hotel’s Caribbean Victorian design. This style combines the rich architecture of state homes in the area. Wood, thatched roofs, open spaces, clean lines, and large windows are all part of the iconic look.

Soft hues contrast with splashes of deep color from the decorations and gardens. Tropical bushes and palm trees peek out of every corner, and there are paths across the property to walk and breathe the ocean breeze.

Wellness enthusiasts will find this a paradise. Enjoy a yoga class in the morning at the open-air yoga studio, or hit the local massage room for a soothing session.

The pool is ideal to fight the heat. Sit in the refreshing water with a signature cocktail from the restaurant and spend the hours away.

Aguas Claras’ dedication to nature is felt throughout: even their sunscreen and insect repellant are organic and made locally, showcasing the best of Costa Rica’s smells and flavors.

In addition, there are sloths, monkeys and butterflies moving across the trees and gardens, so keep your eyes open to catch a glimpse at these evasive creatures.

Nature, Watersports & World-Class Dining

Resting is necessary, but if you prefer something more active, there are also options or you.

Hop on a bike and head to the main Puerto Viejo town to explore, or go to the nearby beach to sunbathe and practice some surfing.

The waves of the Caribbean Sea tend to be shorter, but that means it’s perfect for those who want to learn or simply enjoy an easy ride.

If you want to explore even more of this Costa Rican corner, then you’re lucky. Aguas Claras Hotel has a great location.

It’s not only close to shore but also to a variety of national parks, rescue centers, and cultural & gastronomic experiences.

Go kayaking, visit the famed Gandoca National Park, or take a cacao tour to learn about the Caribbean’s history.

When you return from these expeditions in search of a hearty meal, Aguas Claras has you covered. Right by the pool is Papaya Room, the on-site restaurant.

It’s open for all three meals of the day, and it has a laid-back atmosphere that harmonizes with the rest of the hotel.

Papaya Room offers classic dishes from Puerto Viejo, and fuses traditional flavors with international combinations. Meals here tend to be fresh, creative and tender.

Aguas Claras is truly a place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beach. There’s nature, good food, and world-class service waiting for you.
