Located in the pristine shores of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast lies Playa Chiquita, a hidden gem that captivates travelers with its unspoiled beauty and a unique fusion of tranquility and tropical vibrancy. It is here that the enchanting Hotel Aguas Claras unfolds its story amidst the whispers of rustling palm leaves and the rhythmic lull of the Caribbean waves.

A Vibrant Surfers Paradise

Distinguished from its namesake in Heredia, Puerto Viejo has evolved from a tranquil fishing village into a captivating destination. This vibrant town has gained recognition as one of the world’s premier surfing locations, attracting ecotourists and the youthful and trendy crowd alike. With a laid-back atmosphere and a rich blend of Latino, Afro-Caribbean, and Bribri indigenous cultures, Puerto Viejo provides a lively setting for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

The roots of Playa Chiquita extend deep into the cultural tapestry of Puerto Viejo, adding historical significance to its idyllic setting. Once a quiet fishing village, Playa Chiquita has transformed into a sought-after destination that seamlessly blends serene landscapes with vibrant local culture, echoing the enduring spirit of the community through the gentle caress of the Caribbean Sea.

Discover Hotel Aguas Claras’ New Deluxe Bungalows

Hotel Aguas Claras, a oceanfront oasis by Cayuga Collection, is excited to introduce its latest offering – deluxe luxury bungalows. Set amidst two acres of lush gardens, this resort is elevating its offerings to include a new and exclusive accommodation option, complementing its existing array of six luxury bungalows, six themed suites, and the iconic two-story Caribbean House.

Perched within a tropical haven overlooking the azure Caribbean coast, the deluxe luxury bungalows feature two generously appointed bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Crafted by the creative minds of the mother-daughter duo behind the hotel, Elizabeth Steinvorth and Elena Rohrmoser, these private sanctuaries exude a captivating Caribbean-inspired design, characterized by recycled and repurposed furniture and décor.

Elizabeth Steinvorth elaborates on the design philosophy, stating, “The idea is a construction that maintains the essence associated with Victorian architecture, incorporating details such as railings and high airy ceilings. However, we also wanted to put a focus on comfort and exclusivity, fusing it with a modern private style and a more immersive experience in unity with the nature surrounding our property.”

Immersed in a tropical jungle setting, this adults-only beachfront haven, conceptualized by the visionary mother-daughter duo, reflects the artistic essence of Elizabeth Steinvorth. Her diverse body of work, ranging from floral watercolor paintings and mosaics to murals and upcycled furniture pieces, adorns the hotel alongside creations from the family’s esteemed art circle.

The luxurious offerings of Hotel Aguas Claras include six opulent bungalows, six thematic suites, two deluxe two-bedroom luxury bungalows, and a charismatic two-story Caribbean house. Guests can indulge in open-air spa treatments at Casa Gandhi, partake in yoga, meditation, and chakra therapy sessions, relish Afro-Caribbean cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients at two distinctive restaurants, and revel in access to Playa Chiquita, renowned as one of the premier beaches on the southern Caribbean coast. The expansion of Hotel Aguas Claras marks a new chapter in indulgence, where nature, art, and luxury converge in perfect harmony.
