  • The Jungle House, Zancudo.

    The house sits comfortably back from the road, across from the beach. Although you cannot see the powerful ocean, you can hear and feel the waves from the house. The beach is practically secluded 24/7... absolutely amazing!

    Jungle living allows for spectacular animal (and plant) sightings, including 3 species of monkey, dozens of reptiles, nesting birds, and Blue Morpho butterflies.The house feels like a wildlife sanctuary outside, and one can spend a lot of time observing from the front porch. Bring insect repellant; Zancudo is rich with life, including bugs that bite.

    If you choose to cook here, you'll find the kitchen well-appointed, with a full fridge and freezer, juicer, blender, drip coffee and a propane stove (if you need to refill the tank, just take it down to Tres Amigos and they will exchange it for $20.)
    We traveled here as a family, and the house was clean and ready when we arrived. For families, the house is spacious and in a safe location. Margaret
    was very kind to buy a crib for our infant daughter to make it comfortable for us.

    It is helpful to have a car here. The boats do not run regularly out of Golfito and private taxis are expensive because of the long, rocky roads.

    If you need supplies, (to stock the house) any one of the small stores in town will likely have it (toilet paper, soap, trash bags, etc.).

    The town of Zancudo is extremely laid back and quiet. Locals are friendly and will help when they can. Find Ellie (aka Las Bravos) for baked goods and pizza by order, and Emilio comes on Sunday and Thursdays with produce.

    I would recommend this home for anyone who is flexible in spirit and loves the outdoors. Margaret is great at making herself available but allowing lots of privacy too.
