This is a must stay if you are in Playa Carmen. The property is lush with creativity mixed with Costa Rica nature everywhere. Great for singles or families. The hosts live on the property and are so nice and helpful with anything you could need or want to do. Pura Vida!

We loved Jess's place! We stayed here with our two young children and felt so at home. Jess had paints and drift wood out which our kids loved. The outdoor kitchen is a lovely communal space with hammocks to laze in. All the other guests were really friendly and everyone went to bed early so no issue with noise. The garden is beautiful and we regularly had howler monkeys in the trees. Rooms were clean and cool at night. Would highly recommend. Thanks for having us!

Jess and Dave's place is great! Just off the main road so there is less dust and noise but less than 50m up the hill so you don't need an ATV. There are a number of amazing restaurants really close by that Jess will recommend and the beach road is just a few hundred metres down the road. The rooms are basic but have everything you need and are clean. Having a private toilet in the Delphi room is nice but certainly not essential. It is on the upper floor so you kind of feel like you are staying in a tree house due to the beautiful gardens on the property. The common areas are super chilled with 6 hammocks and well equipped kitchen. There are only 7 private rooms so it's peaceful and quiet but there is always someone to chat to whilst cooking dinner. Highly recommend for people who are after a more authentic CR experience than the busy crowded hostels. Thanks Jess & Dave!

We had a lovely stay at Rio Carmen Guesthouse! The Delfino Room is big, clean and cozy. The whole property is beautiful and comfortable, surrounded by trees and lush garden, with lots of comfy areas to sit or stretch out on a hammock. We enjoyed seeing monkeys in the trees above on a few mornings. It is just a quick walk down the road the beach, and also a short walk from lots of great restaurants. Jessica and David are wonderful hosts and have lots of great suggestions of things to do nearby. Thank you for such a nice stay!

This place is perfect for a couple or a group of people. Everything is close to the location - beach, market, restaurants but you still can feel the hippie vibes all over what is mega awesome! Pura Vida p.s. Jessica you and your husband are so amazing! Thank you for surfing lessons and for sharing your story with us!!

We lucked out on finding this place for sure! The location of the property was perfect; it seemed to be smack in the middle of the two little towns. There are beach routes diagonal to the property in both directions, easy walking distance to whatever you need, and the "best sushi" 6 feet away from the property line. The family is friendly, charming, and will take care of any issues immediately. Our Delfino room was perfect for our needs and we recommend it for small families/groups. The whole place has a really good vibe and I couldn't imagine a better place to introduce my teenage daughter and her friend to travel, not just a vacation. The shared kitchen allowed the teens to interact with people from other countries and even cook meals. The only thing that might be a challenge for some might be the shared cool shower if you have never done it. It adds to the experience, so I suggest it.
