"Ginger & cacao" is perfect for individual vacations, family gatherings, small weddings parties and honeymoons.

Each house in the property has its own space and privacy and each one is unique.  High ceilings, hardwood floors, massive wooden doors and large decks complete the villas’ elegant furnishings. The houses include free WiFi and TV. Fans ventilate every space in each one; sliding mosquito screens are installed on every door and window.

Villa Cacao is build at the elevated portion of the property and has fantastic ocean and jungle views from all rooms. The villa has 1 bedroom with queen size bed and 2 full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, with dishwasher including, bar, sitting area and large deck. The sitting area has a dedicated full bath and is beautifully furnished with two twin beds that could easily be set for comfortable sleeping. Villa Cacao has its shared parking near the villa. A private path takes you to the beautiful pool area.

Villa Ginger is nested into the surrounding jungle with views of it from every single window and deck. The villa has 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, 1 full bathroom with jungle views, fully equipped kitchen with dining area and two large decks. The villa has its own parking space at the front and sitting area under the nearby almond tree. A minute walk on paved path will take you to the pool area.

Both villas have safe deposit boxes installed in the bedrooms. Please secure all your valuables in there and close/lock all windows and doors before leaving the property.


The White Cottage, please visit listing #750426 for more details and reservations, is build under huge trees and next to the pool. The ocean views from its large verandas are terrific. The cottage is full of light; its style & design truly reflect the owner’s ideas for beach comfort. This cottage is perfect for a honeymoon vacation.

The beautiful pool area, surrounded by jungle and gardens, includes a deck with hammocks and a leisure area with chaises and umbrellas. Yoga mats and exercise equipment for your early morning or late afternoon routine of meditation, yoga or exercise. On request, we can set a table with candles for a romantic outdoor dining experience.

The pool area is the perfect spot to see large families of capusine, spider and howling monkeys raiding the treetops and to observe the amazing toucans on nearby fruit trees.

The property is interesting to explore. It consists of authentic tropical jungle with bromelia gardens added around each house and plants with lots of colors and fragrance. The numerous cacao trees and ginger plants inspired the name, “Ginger & Cacao”.

The property is maintained by caretakers. For your service and convenience they reside in a separate cottage on the property by the gate.

‘ Ginger & Cacao” is perfectly located at just short walk to Punta Uva Beach, one of the most striking in the area. A rare place still kept as natural as possible, with a minimum negative impact of over-development. Here is where the jungle meets the white sand beach with its emeralds waters and the almond trees provide a natural shade. It’s not crowded and is very safe for swimming, kayaking and snorkeling.

In Punta Uva one feels the complete connection with nature. There is nothing more beautiful than to get on a bicycle and go for an early morning ride to Gandoca- Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. At this time of the day, there is so much life and activity in the jungle. Howling monkeys call from the tree tops, butterflies and birds fly around searching for food.

Punta Uva is a very private area, removed from the traffic and congestion in areas closer to Puerto Viejo. There are few excellent restaurants and the best supplied in the area grocery store. Within only a 10 min drive, if you choose, you can quickly get to Puerto Viejo.

At night, the action happens here, in Puerto Viejo. It might look a bit shabby, but give it some time and it will grow on you. The somewhat sleepy village turns vibrant, full of life and music, with the smell of food coming from all directions. Ocean-front bars blast reggae and calypso. Shops stay open till late hours.

We are open for business year around.

We, at “Ginger & Cacao”, not only offer an elegant place to stay in the middle of the jungle, but more importantly, we offer a fantastic and memorable experience in Caribbean Costa Rica. We can plan tours for you and guide you to locations that are off the touristic maps. We want you to enjoy your vacation while staying with us and leave with beautiful memories. We understand hospitality, we’ll take care of you.

Hope to see you soon! Best, Zvezda

One of the best ways to explore the Punta Uva area, to see and to hear the jungle is a walk or a leisure jog early in the morning. It takes less than 5 min to go downhill from the "Ginger & Cacao" property to the main road. At 6am or 7am the jungle is full of life and activities. The howling monkeys make their calls, the toucans and number of colorful birds fly around searching for food, the fragrance of the air, especially after a rainy night, is invigorating and uplifting. For a longer exploration trips, renting a bicycle is the best way to get to know the areas from Puerto Viejo all the way to the Manzanillo National Reserve, on the way stopping at the Playa Cocles, Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva. If you choose the Punta Uva- Puerto Viejo direction, a bicycle ride will allow you to make multiple stops for pictures, get a refreshing organic fruit smoothy at the Botanica Organica in Punta Uva or enjoy a good shot of espresso and the locally handmade 72% cacao chocolates at the Paul's Caribbean Chocolates in Playa Cocles. If you have time for lunch, park your bicycle in front of Johanna's in Playa Cocles for good Caribbean food or by the Chille Rojo in Puerto Viejo for fresh sushi. An afternoon ride in that direction is good for shopping stops at the multiple jewelry, art & souvenir stands in the village. If you choose to explore the Punta Uva - Manzanillo area, make time for a lunch at the Selvin's or at the Maxi's at the Manzanillo village, both places offering the fresh catch of the day and cuisine with Caribbean flavor. Don't be mislead by the somewhat shabby appearance of Maxi's. The place, with its ocean front restaurant with great views of the beach and of the plaza with the locals hanging around will give you the chance not only to taste Caribbean food but to get acquainted with the local culture. Both will make for a fantastic and exotic experience.

At night, the action happens in Puerto Viejo. My personal favorite for a drink and dinner is the Koki Beach, an ocean front restaurant & bar with fantastic cuisine, beautifully illuminated and inviting.
