Well, have you ever sat around a Tropical Garden and watched a Scarlet Macaw, a Monkey or a Kinkajou hang out in there environment? You can at "La Casa" Many guests have told us that they saw more wildlife on the property than at any other location during their Costa Rican visit.

Come and stay with us, whether for a few days or a couple of weeks. We are only a 5 minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and only 350 meters from one of the nicest beaches here. Gentle waves will lull you on our beautiful chocolate sand beaches, cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) will fly and play throughout the gardens of "La Casa". This is truly a birders paradise. You don't even have to leave your room to see these impressive Macaws and the many other varieties of exotic birds that visit here. Don't forget to spend some time in the tropical lounge with a 20 ft ceiling finished in tropical hardwoods. "We do offer Wireless Internet Service so please bring your laptops, smartphones or tablets if you want to hook up.

There is extraordinary animal activity at "La Casa" There really isn't anything we can say with words that can do it justice. so we simply suggest that you visit the Photo Gallery and see for yourselves what "La Casa" has to offer. Remember that all photos have been taken on the property. Bring your cameras folks! (website hidden)

Then step outside and relax in one of the lounging areas in the shade. You won't want to leave. And why should you when you can see what you came to Costa Rica for right outside your door!

Why leave monkeys to go look for monkeys? They're right here. With over four acres of lush landscaping and natural mangroves to explore you might just want to stay right here for awhile. The magnificent Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) can be seen daily, literally dropping out of the sky for you to get a very up close peek.

There are tropical, brightly colored flowers, fruits and plants filling the grounds of the property some of which may eventually end up in your tummy.

La Chosa del Manglar, 150 m oeste del aeropuerto, Puerto Jimenez, Puntarenas, Costa Rica 60702 · Joined in January 2014
Andrew User Profile

I've been living in the Tropics since 1991. Most of that time has been spent on the OSA peninsula of southern Costa Rica and Atenas in the hills of the central valley reputed to have the best climate on earth for human habitation according to NASA.

I know that most hosts that have multiple listings are agents but in my case I am the actual owner of the majority of the listings while a couple of friends own the rest. It's all about unique locations and we have a number of them with unparalleled flora and fauna. Some of our offerings are a small hotel in Puerto Jimenez, another one in the peninsula de Azuero of Panama, a large four bedroom tropical home, a cool laid back beach cabin and an escape to the OSA interior on horseback to the Osa Mountain Hut and finally a truly magnificent home in Atenas offering fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding mountains. FYI -all animal fotos were taken on our properties, so bring a camera and enjoy.

I know internet is a huge thing for a lot of travelers, so i have done a few speed tests at Casa Manglar & La Choza del Manglar and posted the results as fotos for you to see. They are the last fotos on each listing. We have a 4 MB connection in Puerto Jimenez but please take into account that when it is raining hard on the OSA internet service can be intermittent.
