Where the Caribbean Sea meets lush tropical forest, stands the fabulous Le Caméléon boutique hotel. On the outskirts of the charismatic coastal village of Puerto Viejo, Le Caméléon is the only upscale lodging to be found in this remote area of Costa Rica.

Fronting Cocles -one of the area’s most beautiful beaches, with golden sand and wild rainforest vegetation- you’ll find yourself in an idyllic balance between relaxing seclusion from the outside world and convenient proximity to the charms of a vibrant Caribbean town.

Le Caméléon hotel overflows with dense tropical gardens and rich wildlife. Modern rooms, crafted from pure whites with vibrant touches of colour, offer a sleek design that is as stylish as it is comfortable. Sliding glass doors lead out to private balconies, letting in natural light to warm your surroundings. Enjoy beautiful spacious bathrooms stocked with thoughtful amenities and delightful plush beds.

Le Cameleon Boutique Hotel offers upscale beach accommodations within the tropical forest of Puerto Viejo, Limon. The 23 Rooms sit around the pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens, across the street from its Beach Club. The all-white minimalist rooms are decorated with a touch of bright colours and have all the comfort expected in order to have a restful night after your day at the beach or for your afternoon nap after touring the region.

All the rooms feature A/C, Satellite TV, Wi-Fi, Rain Shower, Mini Bar, phone, IPod/IPhone docking station and Yves Rocher amenities. You have a choice of King size, Queen Size or two Full size beds. With its laid back attitude and Caribbean lifestyle, Puerto Viejo has it all: long walks on the pristine beaches, exotic flora and fauna in a wildlife refuge. Ask our tour desk about our tour options ranging from snorkelling or diving among the many reefs, world-class surfing, kayaking horseback riding, deep sea fishing, zip lining, cultural visits to indigenous communities and more.

Should you prefer to hang around the hotel, then choose from private yoga classes, Spa treatments in the ‘tree-house’ Spa, Nunu gastronomic restaurant, lap pool and cool water Jacuzzi, reading/lounging areas surrounded by wildlife and of course La Sula Sea Lounge with its day-beds, hammocks, lounge chairs, bar and restaurant service right on Cocles Beach.

Our opinion

Staff at the reception very professional, helpful.

The setting is perfect, a nice pool and Jacuzzi in the green, a beach club just across the road, a great beach and warm, clean sea.

The rooms are big, extra clean, with a very nice minimalist “all white” design.

Free, fast Wi-Fi.

Buffet breakfast served in a very pleasant garden.

In one word: excellent

Room Type

Deluxe Rooms

Deluxe Rooms are located on the ground floor, their porch open to the lush tropical gardens of Le Caméléon.

Each one has two Full-size beds in a comfortable 38 m2 area. If you’re traveling with a friend and are looking for a classy but convenient accommodation, from which you can both easily slip in and out of to come and go from the bar and pool and all your activities, a Garden Room is your best choice. Enjoy the contemporary and minimalist decor of Le Caméléon’s original style from the ease of a first story accommodation.


Superior Rooms

Superior rooms are located on the second floor. From your private balcony you have a beautiful view to the lush green tropical vegetation of the hotel’s garden. Each Upper Room has one Queen-size bed in a nice 35 m2 area. This option is perfect for couples who prefer upstairs accommodations and for solo travelers who simply like a nice large bed for themselves. Spend some time on your outdoor terrace and try to catch a glimpse of some of Costa Rica’s colorful birds that enjoy visiting our gardens.


Junior Suites

Junior Suites are a great, spacious option for couples. These suites are located on the ground floor, conveniently close to our relaxing pool and Jacuzzi. They each have a wonderful King-size bed in a 42 m2 area, plus a Full-size sofa bed for lounging or in case you’re traveling with your child. The wonderful thing about the Junior Suites is that they are very spacious, making you feel pampered simply by the dimensions of the room – let alone the high-end amenities. The King-size bed is of course the largest benefit, and almost mandatory for anyone planning a romantic getaway on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast.


Le Caméléon Suite

King of our hotel, Le Caméléon Suite is your most luxurious option. It is secluded on the second floor, and with 70 m2 of space it harbors extra details to make your stay all the more enjoyable. Besides the amenities mentioned for all twenty three of the hotel’s rooming options, Le Caméléon Suite has a rewarding bathtub with a view to the garden, a Full-size sofa bed, a lounging area and an extra half bathroom. It also has ceiling fans in addition to the air conditioning, a second 32 inch plasma t.v. and an optional sliding door in case you’d like to separate the two sleeping options. Needless to say, Le Caméléon Suite is the option you’ll choose if you want it all: privacy, originality, space, comfort and luxury. This suite is perfect for honeymooners searching for something special or for small families who would like to stay close together.
