Pura Vida
at The Big Bamboo

In the heart of the hamlet of Uvita, located at the entrance to Ballena National Park on the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica is a tiny slice of paradise. Comfortable rooms, loaded with amenities such as WIFI, cable TV and climate controlled air-conditioners, are perfectly complemented by the Big Bamboo Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just make reservations with Chef Lucy at (506) 2743 8033. 

Take in the fragrances of the morning air while getting ready to snorkel, surf or swim under a waterfall, while Chef Lucy prepares a meal to-go. Then after your adventure, your dinner will be waiting for you.

The Big Bamboo is the perfect location for inexpensive lodging without giving up any of the amenities from home. We can arrange all facets of your trip with the pick up at the airport and a myriad of excursions tailored to your desires.
