Maribu Caribe hotel in Limon, Costa Rica is a lovely collection of bungalows, some with dazzling ocean views of the Caribbean shores. The hotel is located on the Caribbean Coast, just 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Limon in the town of Portete, 2 hours from San Jose. As you move out of the highlands and down the precipitous slopes to the Caribbean plains the lands begin to take on a distinctly equatorial feeling. The Caribbean Coast is generally hot and wet, averaging 118 to 197 inches (3,000 to 5,000 mm) of rain annually. Fortunately light breezes blow consistently year-round on the coast. It is indeed a tropical climate and Maribu Caribe Prestige hotel is where you can enjoy the Costa Rican rainforest feeling: Lush coconut palms and tropical gardens surround the bungalows and the main ocean lodge bungalows have a mesmerizing ocean view.
Maribu Caribe is the largest hotel on the Atlantic Coast offering 17 bungalows with 52 rooms. The bungalows at Maribu Caribe are round, thatched roofed, African-styled cabins, peeking over the top of the hill. The Maribu bungalows are decorated in a very tropical and comfortable style. The hotel enjoys a scenic setting overlooking the ocean, although views are somewhat obscured by palm trees. The resort is centered round the hotel’s swimming pool, with steps leading up to the restaurant for alfresco dining. A second, more romantic open-air restaurant overlooks the ocean and catches the ocean breezes.
