An effort to rescue the architectural style typical of the Caribbean region
Along the Caribbean coast, this style barely survived in a few buildings in Limón and Cahuita, and on the islands of Bocas del Toro just across the border into Panama. The Caribbean style developed in the colonial period when the Victorian style was brought to the islands by British and French colonizers in the 18th and 19th centuries. This style got mixed with the colors and ideas of the Indigenous and African population of the area. Its predominant features are high roofs with extended eaves and a broken roof line, intense colors with Victorian decorations, all built upon stilts to protect from the high humidity.
Aguas Claras is located within the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge in the exotic Southern Caribbean region of Costa Rica, Aguas Claras cottages are surrounded by lush tropical gardens with a private 100 yard trail through ancient rainforest trees to the sandy beach. Each cottage is uniquely distinguished by its colourful, artistically designed Caribbean style.
