Aguas Claras

Presence is the most important tool an artist can have. Presence surrounded by uncompromising nature is the most powerful force of our time - this is what we offer!


Playa Chiquita, Limon; one of the most beautiful beaches in the world; houses this magnificent collage of Caribbean and Victorian architecture. Carefully chosen fountains, unapologetically recycled or upcycled furniture, art objects from the original hotel are testament to Visual artist Elizabeth Steinvorth´s creation.


An exquisitely designed restaurant blends with our outdoor swimming pool, a walk through our luscious jungle garden welcomes you to our open wooden yoga shala. Personalized local staff service is ready to help you enjoy an unforgettable Caribbean experience.

What We Love

• Located few steps away from the beach, on the beach side of the road.
• Distinct Caribbean/Victorian architecture in the Lobby, Rooms and Bungalows.
• Restaurant and Yoga Shala contrast with bamboo and wooden structures.
• Decoration is full of art and color, tastefully curated by the owner.
