When we first arrived in Puerto Viejo we headed to Veronica’s Place, the local vegetarian hostel (yes, this is also where we had our cooking class). Veronica has both a hostel with dorms in town and cabins attached to her house on the edge of town. We stayed in her cabins, which were brightly painted, clean and with a shared kitchen (that had a blender and coffee sock!) attached.

Is a great place to eat healthy caribbean food, made with lots of love. I highly recommend Veronica's caribbean pastry. Es un exelente restaurante de comida caribeña saludable, hecha con mucho amor. Recomiendo la reposteria caribeña de Veronica.

Veronica's Place:
Veronica will really make you feel at home and serves excellent local organic vegetarian food and juices. She also has a bed and breakfast and her husband gives tours to local sights. She even made me a special tea (that really worked) to treat an upset stomach I had.
