We are looking forward to meeting you soon at Cascada Verde Hostel in Uvita, Costa Rica.
We, a German family from Berlin, realized our dream to live in the jungle and are happy to share our home with you!
We take care for a warm and relaxed atmosphere, plenty of comfy furniture is provided to get some rest while travelling.
You can spot plenty of Costa Rican wildlife right from one of our terraces and enjoy our stunning jungle (+ a bit of ocean) view!

- Our reception is open from 7am to 9pm.
- We accept cash and credit card/PayPal payments but have to charge 5% for credit card payments & 6% for PayPal payments..
You can pay in both currencies: Costa Rican Colones ₡ or US $.
- We have a big and fully equipped kitchen for everyone's use at our hostel
and we serve a delicious breakfast between 7 and 11am for $7 per person.
Basics like coffee, tea, salt, pepper, sugar, soy oil are also provided.
(Cooking is possible between 6am and 9pm.)

We recommend buying your groceries as soon as you arrive in central Uvita
because there is no proper supermarket closer than the SP Supermarket downtown.
Of course there are good restaurants nearby but you'll have to walk at least a few minutes to get there.

- Our hostel building is pretty open: Ceilings are not closed and everything is made out of wood.
Which gives it a very special atmosphere and that's why most guests love it here
but please keep in mind that privacy is - let's say: limited.
- Because of the conditions of the building we can not accept kids younger than at least 6 years old (depending a bit on each child).


What to bring:
- It gets dark up here - please bring a flashlight!
- Between April and mid December it's good to have an umbrella.
- If you want, bring your own mosquito net.
(Luckily we don't have many mosquitos...)


Please keep in mind:
As you hopefully know we are located in the jungle
and yes, there are bugs up here! Not many but some.
It can happen that you see a snake or a scorpion.
It does not happen very often, because they don't like people,
but it is a possibility... So far nobody got hurt ;-)


About whale-watching-tours here in Uvita:
Please check the whale season months if you only come to see whales!
As far as we know whales are here from mid July to mid October,
hopefully coming back end of December and stay until February.
Naturally, things can change so please contact us or a tour operator in Uvita
before you book your accomodation!
By the way: Dolphins are usually around all year round
and the snorkeling is good fun anyway!


A general tip for Costa Rica:
Bring a copy of your passport!
There are often police controls and they might want to see your passport -
but if you go to the beach, you better bring nothing more than a towel and swimming gear -
there is many small thievery Costa Rica, especially at the beach.
That's why it's better only to bring a copy of your passport when you go out...


Travelling by bus:
Direct buses from San José run regularly between 6am and 7:30pm.
The ride takes 3,5 to 4 hrs if you take a bis along the coast.
TRACOPA is the name of company and terminal.

- Arriving in Uvita from San José with TRACOPA (light green and pink buses),
you'll get off the bus at a proper bus terminal across the street from the SP supermarket.
Please turn left (going north) and follow the big road just a few meters until you get to a junction
with the BCR bank next to a SP supermarket to your right.
If you prefer to walk, turn right and go up the road at the BCR bank -
just follow the signs to the waterfall and watch out for our signs!
It's a 20 minutes walk and it's pretty exhausting (uphill) but it's doable...
Just a few meters before the waterfall you'll have to turn left again.
You can also take a taxi - they usually wait outside of the BCR bank right at the corner.
It's 4$ for a ride to our hostel, that's 2.000 Colones.

- Coming from the NORTH (Jacó, San Isidro, Quepos, Dominical...) by local bus:
Please get off at the bus stop at the black bus stop (with EL TECAL sign) in central Uvita.
Across the street you'll see the BCR bank and the SP supermarket next to it.
If you want to walk, go up that road at the BCR bank, follow the signs to the waterfall and watch out for our signs!
It's a 20 minutes walk and it's pretty exhausting (uphill) but it's doable...
Just a few meters before the waterfall you'll have to turn left again.
Or take a taxi (4$ / 2.000 Colones) - they usually wait right at the corner in front of the BCR bank.

- Coming from the SOUTH (Panama, Osa, Palmar Norte...) by local transportation:
Please get out at a small bus stop almost in front of the SP supermarket in cenral Uvita!
If you prefer to walk, pass the supermarket and turn right and go up the road at the BCR bank -
just follow the signs to the waterfall and watch out for our signs!
It's a 20 minutes walk and it's pretty exhausting (uphill) but it's doable...
Just a few meters before the waterfall you'll have to turn left again.
You can also take a taxi - they usually wait outside of the BCR bank right at the corner.
It's 4$ for a ride to our hostel, that's 2.000 Colones.


Travelling by car:
- Coming from the north (San José, Jacó, Quepos, Dominical...):
Entering Uvita you'll pass a gas station, a whale sculpture and get to a junction with a small restaurant to your right
and a BCR bank across the street to your left.
Please turn left at that BCR bank and drive up the hill.
Follow the signs to the waterfall and watch out for our signs!
Just a few meters before the waterfall you'll have to turn left again.
It's a little more than 1km (10min) from the BCR bank to Cascada Verde.

- Coming from the south (Panama, Osa...):
Entering Uvita you'll pass a BM supermarket to your right, "The Dome" on your left and finally cross a bridge.
Then you'll pass the SP supermarket on your right and a few shops to your left like the Uvita Information Center
and you'll get to a junction with a BCR bank at the corner to your right.
Please turn right at that BCR bank and drive up the road.
Follow the signs to the waterfall and watch out for our signs!
Just a few meters before the waterfall you'll have to turn left again.
It's a little more than 1km (10min) from the BCR bank to Cascada Verde going up the hill.

See you soon at Cascada Verde! Hasta pronto!
Have a safe journey! Buen viaje!

    I had an amazing time in cascada verde, really chilled atmosphere, open communicative common rooms and a beautiful view from the first floor. Only downside was that it was quite noisy due to the wooden house, but I would highly recommend to stay here, it was the nicest hostel I've seen so far.

    Super sauberes und gut ausgestattetes Hostel (vor allem die Küche). Julie & Team geben sich viel Mühe den Aufenthalt so schön wie möglich zu machen :) Ich mochte die nahe Lage zum Wasserfall, dafür ist es eben ins Zentrum/zum Strand ein längerer Weg. Würde jederzeit wieder buchen! :)

    Traumhaft. Wer mal eine etwas andere Hostel Erfahrung möchte und nah an der Natur sein will, ist hier genau richtig. Haben unseren Aufenthalt sogar verlängert, da es uns so gut gefallen hat.

    Familiär geführtes Hostel mit toller Atmosphäre. Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr hilfsbereit wenn es um Fragen zu Transport, Ausflügen etc. ging. Sauberer und geräumiger Gemeinschaftsschlafsaal mit Badezimmer direkt um die Ecke. Das Zimmer lässt sich nicht abschließen, es hat jedoch jeder ein eigenes kleines Schließfach im Zimmer. Die Gemeinschaftsbereiche bieten viele nette Möglichkeiten, den umgebenden Dschungel zu genießen. Insgesamt ein tolles Hostel, wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt.

    Die Atmosphäre und die Lage des Hostels mitten im Regenwald sind einzigartig! Die Küche ist ausgesprochen gut ausgestattet. In dem Dorm hätten auch vier Betten gereicht, mit fünf war es ziemlich vollgestopft. Man bekommt keinen Schlüssel mit der Begründung, dass es ein Shared dorm sei. Bedeutet für uns nicht, dass wir das Zimmer mit dem ganzen Hostel teilen. Leider war der Besitzer „typisch deutsch“, wenig herzlich und hat auf fragen schnippisch reagiert. Das Ambiete hat dies jedoch wett gemacht

    Supertolles, wunderschönes Holzhaus, super ausgestattete Küche! Extrem hellhörig, kann manchmal sehr unangenehm sein aber so ist das eben in so einem Haus. Mitten im Dschungel, muss man mögen aber hat man sich ja mit der Buchung ausgesucht! Morgens kann man die Affen beim herumklettern beobachten und abends Käfer mit leuchtenden Augen. Der Wasserfall ist direkt nebenan, die nächste Bushaltestelle&Supermarkt allerdings etwas entfernt (20 min zu Fuß). Mitarbeiter nicht die herzlichsten but oh well

    Lovely Place in the middle of lush greens, nice deck to chill and yoga, supermarket is a 20 min walk down the hill, but you can get few cooking and snacking supplies at the house. Drinks are available and prices are pretty fair. The doublerooms are just a dorm with planks between the beds, so privacy comes through not seeing each other. You will hear every sound your neighbour makes. The cascade is super awesome and super close. Wifi is slow but thats common in uvita. Breakfast (7$) is a plus.
