Description

The space

This tropical casa is located in Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre at the end of the road where the jungle begins. A very wild place indeed and Casa los Suenos is a private guest house but not isolated as the property manager’s home is right next door. This is very helpful in assuring guests have the best possible experience but not for someone looking for a completely secluded vacation rental with no neighbors.

The Osa Peninsula, southwest Costa Rica is where the rainforest meets the sea. It is in one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. One of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled, it has been dubbed Costa Rica's last wilderness frontier. Rich in wildlife, sparsely populated and until recently very difficult to access by road. Consequently much of the peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. Dominated by Corcovado National Park which protects most of the peninsula, the Osa supports more then fifty percent of the animal and plant species that live in Costa Rica. National Geographic has described the Osa as, "The most biologically intense place on earth".

Guest access

Dos Brazos is a town with a rich history and an even more prosperous future. Not more than 40 years ago, gold, and lots of it, was Dos Brazos claim to fame. People came from everywhere to work for the gold mining companies back then. After the companies left some decided to stay and Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre was born. Today Dos Brazos is a sleepy little town of just 295 inhabitants that lies in the richest location you can imagine, right at the border of the world famous Corcovado National Park with a brand new park entrance coming February 5th, 2015! Although gold mining is still practiced, the wealth is in the amazing diversity of flora and fauna and wild life. In fact Corcovado is thought to be one of the most biologically intense and pristine places in the world!

Interaction with guests

Please bear in mind that the internet connection in the Osa Peninsula is very limited and sometimes it can take longer than usual for a response to your inquiries.

Today Dos Brazos is a sleepy little town of just 295 inhabitants that lies in the richest location you can imagine, right at the border of the world famous Corcovado National Park with a brand new park entrance opened in February 2015! Although gold mining is still practiced, the wealth is in the amazing diversity of flora and fauna and wild life. In fact Corcovado is thought to be one of the most biologically intense and pristine places in the world!

It’s a small oasis of civilization, surrounded by the jungle of the forest reserve that encompasses Corcovado. Although it’s a short 12-kilometer ride from the beautiful Pacific beaches of Puerto Jimenez, and just a little further from great wave riding in Matapalo, it’s a town that is barely known on the tourist circuit. From Dos Brazos you’ll find extensive walking trails into the jungle, with several waterfalls to see, world class birding, horseback riding, gold mining tours, and more are all available. There are two small grocers, a bar, and a Soda (cafe) which has good food. So get off the beaten path, and make your way to Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre!

Getting around

By Taxi: From Puerto Jimenez you can take a taxi for $25 USD, they are pretty easy to find once you are in town, just tell the taxi driver to take you to Tristan's house in Dos Brazos.

By Bus: In the center of Puerto Jimenez the El Tigre colectivo (local bus service) runs to Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre (12 kilometers/7.5 miles west of Puerto Jimenez). Monday thru Friday @ 11am and 4pm at the hardware store next to the Carate bus stop. From Dos Brazos to Puerto Jimenez @ 6:00 am and 12:00 pm. The fare is ₡1,500/$3 USD.

Welcome, Bienvenidos

Please note we really prefer that guests do not check-in after 6:00 pm. If you’re driving from an area that is far away (we advise you that driving times are usually much longer then what you might think) then take your time and enjoy the drive, no need to rush, you’re on holiday!

In an effort to conserve energy and respect the environment turn off everything when not in use, do not forget the lights and fans.

Casa los Suenos is located in the Forest Reserve of the Corcovado National Park and many amazing creatures live here. A word of caution: some of them are dangerous. Make sure that you bring a head lamp and or flashlight. Always carry a lamp at night and use caution when walking in the jungle.

There is no rubbish service in the jungle and we recycle what we can. We ask that you separate your garbage and dispose of accordingly in the appropriate bins provided and please do not bring plastic drinking water bottles, we have some of the best water in Costa Rica! Bring one bottle for your drinking water and re-use it, we love our beautiful jungle paradise and want to keep that way!

Just like in much of Costa Rica, our septic tank is unable to handle any paper or feminine products so we ask that you place these things in the bin provided next to the toilet. It would be appreciated if you do not smoke inside of the house.

Although we have never had problems in the past, always take precaution before you leave and lock your doors.

When staying with us at Casa los Suenos we want you to consider it your home for as long as your vacation lasts, and we are sure you will love it and treat it as if it is your own.

Pura Vida,

Tristan

Tristan was extremely helpful and organized with arranging tours and giving advice for doing things on your own. We loved the location in Dos Brazos, you are steps away from all the trails in Bolita and Corcovado. The house was very comfortable and the deck with the hammocks will be missed the most. We will definitely be back!

A great place but definitely need a 4x4 for the road and to be fairly agile for the internal stairs. Wonderful outside deck for relaxing. Well equipped kitchen. Tristan is extremely helpful and goes out of his way to ensure guests have a good time

Tristan was a fabulous host and the house was perfect, spotless and well equipped. We loved the trails and hiking both nearby and around Osa - Tristan gives you many great tips for exploring! We had so much wildlife right in the yard and the guided hikes were a highlight (night hike and Corcovado El Tigre trails). Emelio the cat will make you feel right at home and will even alert you when there are birds nearby! The town is friendly and it's an ideal location for hiking, birding, wildlife and living in a community.

Casa Los Suenos was one of the highlights of our weeklong trip to Costa Rica. Apprehensive at the remoteness of the location at first, we ended up leaving wishing we had booked a full week. Tristan was a friendly host and was extremely helpful during our stay. Take advantage of all of his recommendations for activities and places to eat. We hiked the El Tigre region of Corcovado with a guide he set up for us prior to arriving (Roger was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide). There are many beaches to explore within an hour, as well as a variety of hiking trails just a short walk from the from door. Three nights and two full days to explore felt like the minimum time for this location. Tristan made us coffee on our last morning before leaving.

Awesome place to stay near the national park! The location was amazing for both guided and independent walks in the forest, and nearby river and waterfalls, with spectacular wildlife. Our one sighting of the endangered squirrel monkeys was on a walk from his house. The house was extremely clean and comfortable, and totally lived up to the pictures on this site. The kitchen set up is great and the deck with the hammocks was quite luxuriously relaxing. Tristan is a wonderful host, always available to help us with logistics, even when we needed some extra help renting a car and changing some of our plans. He has great connections with the most excellent guides, and found the perfect one for our specific interests in wildlife and conservation biology. We stayed 5 days and were truly delighted in everything. We most definitely plan to go back to stay at Tristan's place again.

que dire de plus que: merci Tristan?... et oui notre voyage ne s'est pas vraiment déroulé comme nous l'avions imaginé (cloîtré pendant 2 jours du fait d'une tempête tropicale), mais Tristan a su gérer la situation de A à Z et a trouvé des solutions à tout nos problèmes... merci Tristan pour ta joie de vivre, pour ta bonne humeur, tes conseils, l'organisation de notre séjour et tant d'autres choses aussi

Response from Tristan:
C'était un plaisir de rencontrer Damien et Bénédicte et ils étaient de grands invités avec une super attitude. Étant donné qu'ils nous rendaient visite à Dos Brazos, nous avons eu de sévères tempêtes tropicales avec beaucoup de problèmes, y compris un pont donnant accès à la maison où ils séjournaient, Casa los Suenos. Ils seraient certainement accueillis en arrière n'importe quand!
