Sueño Grande B&B at the beach on the map.
For those of you wanting to experience living & traveling on the south carribean side of Costa Rica, staying at Sueno Grande B&B in Puerto Veijo will be the perfect place for you. From when I landed in San Jose, Sueno Grande B&B helped to arrange my shuttle service and delivered me right to the B&B's front door within 4.5 hours. Sueno Grande B&B is located in the perfect location in the town, where it is two blocks from the beach, but also tucked further back from the main night scene to provide some tranquility, quiet and peace. It is within walking distance to all the great restaurants (e.g Cafe Rico, Bread and Chocolate, Stashu, etc), bike rentals, your tour booking facilities, and artisan and clothing stores. The grocery store is just around the corner for when I want to make a meal in the suite. I recommend renting a bike to get around the town, as well as for day trips to adjacent beaches and towns. The bike will also provide additional safety for when getting around at night vs walking. Sueno Grande B&B has plenty room to store your bikes. The B&B is a private property and is surrounded by a 10ft wall that provides a layer of safety for your belongings. Jody, the owner lives on one side with her two Great Danes, that also provide additional safety to the property. Separating where she lives and where the guest suites are, is a beautiful pool with waterfall, and is great for tanning and relaxing. The room has wifi, air conditioning, a fully stocked kitchenette, stove, and fridge. The large room is beautifully decorated, super clean, with a very comfortable king size bed. The bathroom is beautiful with a walk in shower and hot water is available. Breakfast is tasty and the baking is just yummy. I stayed at Sueno Grande B&B for three weeks, and made it my touch down place for when I biked to surrounding beaches and towns (eg. Cahuita, Playa Negra, Playa Cocles, Punta Uva, Playa Chiquita, Manzanillo), traveling into the tropical jungle (eg. Bri Bri, Hone Creek), visiting the botanical gardens, the animal rescue centers, massage/spa, going to yoga classes at Cashew Hill - OM, and even making a short trip into Panama. For those of you who are willing to do the bike ride and not afraid to get some sun, Sueno Grande B&B is all within biking distance to these towns and beaches. You can also get easy access to taxi and buses from the B&B to these beaches/towns. Jody the owner, is very well travelled and is very knowledgeable of the town, the activities, and restaurants. She is knowledgeable of the plants and animals in areas. She can help you to refine your vacation to become memories to last a lifetime. When you are preparing yourself back to go home, Jody will also set up your transportation back to San Jose, to get you back safe and sound. I definitely will be going back for another visit!
