Our private bamboo cabin is perfect for people that enjoy a calm atmosphere away from the main tourist trails. Our place, BAHIA RICA, is perfect for relaxing in a hammock and enjoying the jungle sounds, or you can go paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling or fishing tour with us.

The space
Bahía Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge is at Punta Cuchillo, Paquera on Costa Rica's west coast. We are renting out the rooms in a guest house as a Bed & Breakfast. The Bamboo cabin is a private cabin just below the guesthouse.

The Bamboo cabin has a private bathroom and a separate terrace with a niche hangout area with hammocks and lounge chairs.

The Bamboo cabin has a little corner with your own coffee maker (coffee and tea is complimentary), and if you would like to cook your own meals you can use the SHARED kitchen in the guesthouse.

Be aware that the Bamboo cabin is based on a hill, and to get down to the beach area and breakfast area you have to walk a LONG stairway (250 steps). So if you have issues walking stairs, this would not be the place for you.

Bahía Rica kayak and fishing lodge is based on the properties of La Nicoyana a small private nature reserve. So it is very pristine. At Bahía Rica we live close to the nature and take pride in protecting our surroundings.

Guest access
The guest house has two balconies with nice hammocks, a little library and some board games. There is a small kitchen if you want to cook for yourself, or you can order DINNER from us - $15 per person (We do NOT cook lunch). We do home cooked meals on request.

You have free coffee and tea available, and we have good drinking water right from the tap.

From the Bamboo cabin (and the guesthouse) you have to walk over 250 steps to get down to the common area close to the beach - but it is well worth it as we have our own tranquil beach with palm trees.

We offer several tours as well (please ask us for availability and prices):
Sport fishing
Sea kayaking
Bioluminescent night kayaking (when there is no full moon)
Sunset & Full moon kayaking (during the week of full moon)
SUP - Stand Up Paddleboarding
Boat tours to Isla Tortuga with snorkeling
Boat tours to Isla San Lucas (the prison island)
Snorkeling and monkey boat tours
Whale and dolphin watching tours (in the season)

Other things to note
Breakfast is included in the price.
Options for other meals:
1) There is a small kitchen in the guesthouse so you can cook for yourselves. Be advised that the closest grocery store is 8km away, in the little town of Paquera
2) We cook dinner on request ($15 per person) - please check with us as it is not available every night
3) Pizza delivery
4) Casa de Manito - a local restaurant 5 min walk from our place
5) Go to one of the restaurants in the little town of Paquera
(There is also a small restaurant close to the ferry landing that is open until 4pm - only 1,5 m to walk)
6) Have a fancy dinner at Isla Chiquita. The island is located right in front of us - they do boat pick-up from the restaurant

Location

Punta Cuchillos, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Punta Cuchillo is a small non touristy village, but we are conveniently close to the ferry and buses.
It is a safe neighbourhood, and you'll get a feel of a typical Costa Rican lifestyle. Since there are very few people living here we still have an abundance of wild life. Prepare yourself to meet monkeys, anteaters, skunks, armadillos, butterflies, bats, parrots and a lot of other wildlife.
We also have pets on the property; Bella our dog, 4 cats and some neighbor dogs that likes to hang around here.
