Outfitted with beautiful, screened Moroccan-style tents whose special fabric allows for ventilation and guarantees dulce sueños. Each bungalow has a cozy porch for relaxing and a private, open-air shower adjacent. Share toilets are nearby.

The space

There are 8 thatched-roof tent cabinas spread across our magnificent 20-acre beachfront property on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. The cabinas are specially designed for comfort in a tropical climate. The thatched roof will keep you dry and cool, while a transparent material along the roof-line lets in light. The platforms are outfitted with beautiful, screened Moroccan-style tents whose special fabric allows for ventilation and guarantees dulce sueños (sweet dreams). Each cabina has a cozy porch for relaxing and a private, open-air shower adjacent. Shared bathroom facilities are nearby and conveniently located.

I could have not had a better stay on this lil paradise on earth! Great nature, great people, and super great vibes! The waves right in front of the property are super nice for longboarders at high tide. The tents are very comfy and and well protected from mosquitos and other insects! Monika is a great host whos been living in the area for over 2 decades and helped me with every question I had from surf spots, to hikes, to arranging tours! Monika you're awesome!! The sound of wildlife and waves waking me up in the mornings is something i'll never forget! I in fact recorded the sounds to meditate to when I'm back home! Gonna miss this place so much and can not wait to revisit! Thank you Gretchen, Monika, Grace and Miguel for an experience i would never forget!!

A must stay in the OSA peninsula! Don't miss this experience, this community, these people or these wild beaches. I was amazed by the minute to minute siting of wildlife, the quiet, peaceful, lovely accommodations and the hospitality. I felt I had the perfect combination of on my own, off the grid and pampered and looked after.

With the beautiful, rocky beaches at your feet and a dense strip of well-populated forest to your back, the photos don't do this property justice. During a bumpy ride we in we spotted dozens of monkeys and even more rare birds - a novel sight for nature lovers. Upon arrival our needs were quickly and helpfully attended too, with all of our questions being answered in great detail. The tents were immaculate and the fans kept us cool throughout the evening. Also don't miss out on - wonderful breakfast cooked on site, the outdoor shower, the antics of hundreds of hermit crabs, and great food in a funky atmosphere at Martina's down the road. We will be back!

We had a truly amazing time at Boca Sombrero. The Tent cabinas were just as described and their location is great. They are placed in a way were there is no need for anyone to walk in front of your cabina so while they are in an open space and you share a toilet, you feel like you have your own place. The property is beautiful and very well kept. Monika was a great host. Both her and her team, including Laura and Grace, were very welcoming and made our stay very enjoyable. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants just relax as well as to people that are interested in surfing, hiking or wildlife in general. Thanks for a great stay and thanks to Gretchen for the quick response and great directions while planning our trip.

I moved to Costa Rica from Seattle in 2003. I love the laid back lifestyle of Costa Rica and the incredible wildlife on the Osa Peninsula. I work as the booking agent for the three beachfront houses and eight tent cabinas that make up Boca Sombrero.
