The staff at Chosa del Manglar went out of their way to make us feel right at home and are extremely accomodating. They even greeted us with a chilled bottle of wine, which was much needed and appreciated! The Kinkajou Hut is HUGE and very private with great AC and wifi and a giant king size bed. Andrew is great at communicating and answered every inquiry we had immediately and was more than helpful pointing us in the right direction of jungle tours, boat tours, basically whatever you need he will follow up and find a solution for you. The property is absolutely incredible, the flora & fauna are beautiful!!! There are so many incredible plants and animals, I think we saw more at La Chosa than any other place we visited in all of Costa Rica. Under a ten minute walk to town or to the beach and a 2 minute walk to the airport, couldn't ask for more.

Spending time at La Chosa deal Manglar was the best decision we made on our entire trip. This property is truly magical, offering exotic flora and fauna around every corner, hammocks and benches for resting and viewing the wildlife while you soak in the warm jungle breeze. The staff is incredible, there to help you with a smile, anytime you need. La Casa Manglar is a perfect private or romantic getaway, and the rooms and cabinas are exactly the break you need after a long day. But don't get caught up in your cozy room! Explore all this beautiful property has to offer, and enjoy the perfect hub location between beach and town. Thank you Andrew for such a beautiful getaway!

The Chosa del Manglar property is a lovely private gated woods with mangrove trees, lots of birds, colorful crabs, and the sounds of many nearby frogs. There are numerous cabins connected by paths that continue down to the nearby stream. We had the spacious large bedroom in the main lodge with its own large bathroom and porch, and direct access to the shared kitchen. We felt pampered by the quality of the furniture and the construction of the main house in general. Andrew was very enthusiastic, friendly, and helpful, with lots of practical advice about navigating Jimenez and Carate. We were up at 4:30 to drive down to Corcovado, and there was already coffee waiting for us. This was a great place to stay if you’re looking for some comfort while exploring Puerto Jimenez, we highly recommend it!

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.
