Among the original laid-back Caribbean villages of Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo, right in front of Cocles Beach, an enchanting and serene lodge, in complete harmony with the surrounding tropical rainforest, awaits you at AZANIA BUNGALOWS.



Just a few steps from the Caribbean sea, with the tropical rainforest in background, the spacious and tastefully decorated bungalows are privately set apart amidst lush gardens full of color and natural beauty.

Designed and crafted in a unique style that blends traditional materials, exotic woods and thatched-palm roofs, with a modern building concept, each bungalow has a particular atmosphere.



BUNGALOWS - Each one comfortably lodge up to 4 people, with one queen size bed and two twin size beds, one of them placed in the mezzanine to provide privacy and wonderful spatial flexibility. All decorated with bamboo lamps and furniture, while ceiling fans, large windows with mosquito nets and high peaked roofs allow a refreshing natural air circulation.
Each bungalow comes with minibar, security box and a softly lit original sauna-style bathroom that allows you to enjoy a shower while admiring the natural surroundings. Its own private deck and hammock out front, invites to relax and enjoy the colorful tropical gardens of the surroundings covered with bromeliads, heliconias, gingers, palms and tropical fruit trees, which interact with a great variety of birds and butterflies.



THE CLUB-HOUSE - For enjoying a delightful tropical breakfast, fresh drinks, listen to some music, Direct TV, play games or get some information and advices about tours and activities…a cozy place with fine woods and inviting decoration awaits you…the “Club House / Reception”…built like a typical palm-roof Rancho which reflects in the dimensions of its structure those of the surrounding rainforest.



RESTAURANT & BAR - Located at the “Quincho” style rancho next to the swimming pool. Regarding gastronomy, Azania Bungalows offers the possibility of tasting exquisite dishes in its own restaurant, where we combine the new Argentinean Cuisine with local ingredients and flavors. This fusion cuisine is brought to this area by our chef Fernando Patané, unique on it’s style, our restaurant offers a large menu with Grill Specialties, and not only the well known Argentinean meat, but also sea food and fresh fish coming directly from the ocean to the hands of our chef.
