The Space

Casa Aire Libre is located in the Osa Peninsula, southwest Costa Rica where the rainforest meets the sea. It is 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

Casa Aire Libre is a two-story, open air rustic home truly one with nature, located in the forest reserve of the Corcovado National Park. A very private house, you will have the feeling to be in the middle of the jungle, yet the property manager is only a few minutes away. Tucked away on 30+ acres you will discover the wonders of the tropical rainforest, such as leaf cutter ants, the white-nosed coati and the explosive diversity of bird species; Toucans, Scarlet Macaws, Motmots and Trogons just to name a few. At night you will fall asleep to the sounds of howler monkeys in the distance and the Rio Tigre right outside your house.

Interaction with Guests

Within the Osa you will find Dos Brazos, a town with a rich history and an even more prosperous future. Not more than 30 years ago, gold, and lots of it, was Dos Brazos’ claim to fame. Today Dos Brazos is a sleepy little village of just 175 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 in 2014! Although gold mining is still practiced, the real wealth of the area is the captivating biodiversity found in the last remaining lowland tropical rainforests of Central America.

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 many 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 (diner). So get off the beaten path, and make your way to Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre!

  • Expérience inoubliable dans cette maison justement dénommée 'casa aire libre'. On a l'impression de s'y fondre dans la nature. L'absence de vis-à-vis renforce cette impression.
    L'environnement (alentours de la maison) est magnifique: Peut-être cela contribue-t-il à la présence de tant d'oiseaux aussi beaux que variés.
    La maison est originale et agréable à vivre.
    Tristan est un hôte très sympathique et accueillant avec lequel nous avons partagé de bons moments.

  • We had a blast at Jungle Casa. Tristan was an excellent host. The house was open and looked better than the pictures! He had a few seasonings and coffee there for our stay which was very nice. The landscape there is beautiful! If you love the outdoors, you will totally enjoy this place. You will enjoy falling asleep to the crickets and waking up to the birds singing. It was such a delightful treat to come here. For sure we recommend this place for nature lovers and can't wait to come back to visit.
