Relax and Stay at Casitas Del Rio.   Meaning Homes on the River
A magical place alongside the Morete River.  We are nestled between the tall mountains and the sea.  Surrounded by a massive nature park that is a protected wildlife corridor and at the end of the road yet only 5 minutes to the beach!  We are not close to nature, we are nature!  It is infused into our Eco Lodge.  Nature can be enjoyed throughout the property!   Lull yourself to sleep with the tranquil sound of the river.  Awake to the symphony of exotic birds that frequent our property like Scarlett MacCaws and Toucans!

Our location allows quick and easy access to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and many adventures. The small town of Uvita and the lovely beaches of Playa Ballena, Playa Colonia, and Playa Hermosa are a 5 minute drive from your Casita. Dominical, the popular surf town with its funky bohemian beach bar vibe, is a 12 minute drive north.
