Car: Recommended

Thanks to its closeness to Corcovado National Park, Matapalo´s exuberant wild life is within reach. You´ll see macaws flying over your head, the 4 types of monkeys that inhabit Costa Rica going through the property or if you go out for a walk.

Located near Matapalo, Corcovado National Park is the largest and only tropical primary lowland rainforest in the world – home to monkeys, dantas and jaguars. National Geographic has called it 'the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity'

Puerto Jimenez. This main town in the Osa Peninsula region is located 45 min by car to Matapalo (it is the closest town available). Puerto Jimenez is one of the gateways to Corcovado National Park, from where many excursions can be arranged, and where supplies can be found. In Puerto Jimenez you´ll find the closest hospital, airport, supermarket and gas station.

Also if you wish to dine out or go for a drink and you have a car, you can go to Lapa Rios Hotel, Bosque del Cabo Hotel, Encanta La Vida Lodge or Martina´s Bar.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Ximena is a chilean lawyer who lived in Costa Rica for almost 30 years and still lives partially there. She fell in love with Matapalo in the year 1993 and bought her first property then. Osa Marmaris was built between 2008 and 2009. She fulfilled her dream of building the most elegant and luxurious house in the area, without compromising its eco-friendly standards.

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
This property is magnificently located right next to Backwash Bay without loosing its privacy. Even though it is ocean front, it has a 15 meter rise which makes the view breathtaking from every room you are in.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In Osa Marmaris you will have 3 private bungalows, each one with it´s private bathroom and shower. They are all separate from the social area that includes the living room, dinning room, kitchen and extra bedroom. This way you can choose if you want to hang out with your friends and family in the social area or if you want some privacy and quiet in your own room.
