Overview

Le Cameleon Boutique Hotel is the first luxury property in the lush jungle along the Caribbean coast, traditionally known for attracting surfers to the rural region and nearby fishing villages. The remote area's only upscale lodging, the hotel features tropical gardens, a sparkling pool, Jacuzzi, a treehouse spa and La Sula Sea Lounge complete with day-beds and hammocks on Cocles Beach.

Balconies and patios elbow into the flora and open to bright white guest rooms featuring minimalist design. The bleached walls are a blank canvas for the slashes of bold hues that change color -- the hotel’s namesake artistic element -- and reflect the colors found in the natural surroundings. All rooms have air conditioning, Wi-Fi, a rain shower, mini bar, iPod docking station and bath amenities from the botanical gardens of Yves Rocher.

NOA Restaurant Bar and Beach Club serves lunch and dinner by the beach and breakfast is offered at Market Cafe from 7 am to 10 am daily. The charming seaside hamlet of Puerto Viejo blends Latin, Afro-Caribbean and Bribri cultures, offering reggae music and coconut delicacies to visitors.

Explore Costa Rica beyond the hotel grounds with tours arranged by the concierge. Guests can schedule trips to snorkel, dive and surf among the coral reefs, horseback ride or zip-line through the volcanic jungle, and make contact with indigenous communities deep within the rain forest.
