UP! HOUSE COSTA RICA is the perfect base for your tropical vacation where you can relax and explore. Nestled in the heart of Playa Chiquita, and located 500 meters from the water's edge, this property consists of 2 jungle casitas and a tropical garden with abundant flora and fauna.  

The smaller casita, the MINI UP!, consists of one bedroom with  Air Conditioning, a full-sized bed, and one bathroom, with a living/dining and kitchen area that opens onto the tropical garden. The MINI UP! sleeps 2 people.

It is made of black laurel hardwood, features indigo textiles, as well as local Bribri artwork and handicrafts. The bed is very comfortable, with 400+ thread count cotton sheets and two full sized pillows per person. Aromas Natural products are provided in the bathroom, which are made from locally and organically grown coconuts and ylang ylang. 

The weather in Playa Chiquita is quite moderate, and you might even need a light long-sleeved shirt on some nights. The bedroom has an AC and the living area has a fans. The MINI UP! is well-equipped with proper mosquito repellents (such as nets, mosquito incense coils, and ultrasonic repellents) to avoid bites.

There is a flat screen television in the bedroom with ChromeCast, so you may stream your media apps (such as Netflix, DisneyPlus, and YouTube) to the screen. The MINI UP! also has bluetooth speakers, so you can listen your music in the house. We understand that connectivity is important for our guests, so there is symmetrical fiber optic internet. The property is gated with a 24 hour security system, keyless entry locks, and parking. One parking spot is designated for the MINI UP!

When you arrive, you can drop your bags and be at the beach, an incredible restaurant, or the market within a few minutes walk. There are wonderful roadside stands that sell fresh fruit, homemade bread, pipa fria (cold coconut water), empanadas, and patis nearby. You can rent bikes (across the street), and explore the Caribe Sur area very easily. 

If you choose to cook at the house, the kitchen is well-equipped with a two burner stove, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, blender, cookware, dishes, mugs, glasses, silverware and utensils so you can prepare delicious meals. We stock the kitchen with salt, pepper, sugar, flour, and olive oil. There is a market within a two minute walk (El Duende Gourmet) and two larger markets (Super Negro Green Market and Super Cocles) within a quick bike ride or drive for you to stock up. We also recommend the weekly Saturday farmer's market (Feria Agrícola y Artesanal de Puerto Viejo) in Puerto Viejo for delicious produce, cheeses, chocolate, and breads.

Everyday presents a new nature experience at UP! HOUSE COSTA RICA. On the property, we often see howler monkeys, sloths, green macaws, toucans, iguana, agouti, montezuma oropendula, hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, dragonflies, fireflies, geckos, and more!
