A review from Ben from Massachusetts, who stayed with us at the River House in March 2015: Such an amazing value for the money, and a great experience overall. Located several minutes drive from downtown Uvita, the house and attendant Gumercindo were welcoming and perfect for a week-long getaway. Uvita has a small local vibe to it which I didn't see in many other places on the Pacific coast, really giving you the feeling of living as a local.
Like others have said, the driveway is steep and your car needs some clearance to access the house and bring your own toiletries! Washer, dryer, and wi-fi were a nice plus. Other than that, enjoy the pool and house far from the tourist-y areas of the area.

I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
