Jungle Top Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having travelled all up and down the southern Caribbean coast, this has to be the best place to stay on the entire stretch. You get fresh air, and incredible view, and jungle life abounds in this unique rental, nestled within a rich, sustainable cocoa plantation. We were surrounded by enormous trees and primary jungle, and saw sloths, iguanas, toucans, parrots, howler monkeys, colorful frogs etc. daily. We travelled with 3 teens that easily put down their screens, played board games and enjoyed this incredible environment - beach and jungle walks.

Our hosts were second to none and made us feel extremely welcome, and were very, very helpful to get us oriented, and made sure we were very comfortable at all times.

Don't let the pictures fool you, this space is VAST and airy... we could not stop smiling when we arrived.

We highly recommend doing the Caribean chocolate tour - from bean to bar - on the property, it is a great experience and our family loved it.

You're close enough to town and Cocles beach to walk in and out of there if you feel like it. The best beaches (Punta Uva) are just a short car or bike ride away. You get a peaceful existence surrounded by nature, and you're close to everything.

5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful review. Your family was a delight to host and we really enjoyed the holiday time with you all here. It was very easy to communicate and be ourselves around you. We enjoyed the kids getting excited as they saw the different animals and birds around the house. Thanks so much for spending your time here. Pura Vida, Sherry and Jeff

Beautiful home in the jungle canopy.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything that you could ask for. 3 women, 48, 50, and 63 stayed at this beautiful house.

The view was amazing!

Make sure that you have a 4 wheeler. Getting to the house is an adventure in itself.

When we arrived I was concerned about the temperature in the house being too warm, but it cooled down up on the hill with the ocean breezes. The temperature was perfect.

The beds and pillows were so comfortable that I contacted Sherry and Jeff to find out what brand of beds and pillows they were, so that I could buy the same beds for my homes.

Wildlife was everywhere.

We saw two types of Monkeys, the howler monkeys were close one morning at 4:30 but stayed in the valley the rest of the week. We saw a sloth in two different trees right beside the house, while standing on the deck of the main house.

We saw two types of poison dart frog right out the front gate.

We didn't have any problem with mosquitoes in early May.

Sherry and Jeff were great hosts.

Good, well designed and finished hotel

  • 4 of 5

Good spacious rooms with comfortable beds, air conditioning, mini kitchen, good bathroom.

Good breakfast included in the price (but why use the little wrapped packets of butter, so inconvenient). Staff very efficient , friendly and helpful.

If you have not hired a car there is a good, frequent, cheap bus service in both directions from the hotel. Reception can help in booking tours and in transport to/from the airport or a different resort.

Owner's Response: I don't think this review is referring to our guest house as listed. We are not a hotel and don't have a breakfast service. Our Mango Walk guest house has two bedrooms two baths full big equipped kitchen and lots of living space. Maybe this review is for another hotel.

A Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Mango Walk house along with another couple. The pictures online are beautiful but cannot prepare you for just how breathtaking this property really is! We stayed in 3 different locations/cities during our time in CR and this was bar far the best. Not only was the house beautiful and clean, but the beds and pillows were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, the area felt safe, and of course, Jeff and Sherry were lovely hosts! One helpful reminder, you do NEED a 4x4 vehicle as the driveway is steep, but it sure is fun to drive up and down with a 4x4! Be sure to build time into your stay to take the Caribeans Chocolate tour and to just be at the house! We were thankful that we did not plan activities for every moment as some of our favorite times were sitting on the deck having dinner or drinks. Regarding temperature, the house stays VERY comfortable, we had it completely open during the day and then would just have the screens shut in the evenings. Be sure to keep the lights off as to not attract critters! There are lots of ceiling fans and a few oscillating fans, we truly never felt hot. The house has a water filtration system on the faucet, we drank out of the tap all week. I would recommend bringing a pair of binoculars, there are a pair on the deck, but if you are like our group, we all wanted to watch the sloths and iguanas at once so having more than 1 pair was perfect. Lastly, pack light. When you read that PV is casual, believe it, a few sun dresses and a bathing suit are plenty. We would recommend this house to anyone and plan to visit again someday. It was perfect in every way!

Séjour en pleine jungle!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons fait un voyage de 2 semaines au costa rica avec nos 3 adolescents. Cette maison a été notre préférée des 3 que nous avons loués dans ce voyage. (et la moins cher en plus)

Nous avions loué un 4X4 et j'avoue que c'est assez essentiel car la pente pour se rendre à la maison est pratiquement infaisable avec un véhicule 2 roues motrices.

Sérieusement, cette maison c'est WOW! On se sent réellement en vacance et complètement déconnecté de notre quotidien.

Les murs sont principalement faits de vitres, donc on sent comme si on vivait à l'extérieur. On entend continuellement les bruits de la forêt tropicale et c'est magique. Il y a des singes tout autour, des paresseux, des iguanes et toute une panoplie d'oiseaux tropicaux.

On a la vue sur la mer avec une grande terrasse super confortable.

Il y a deux salle de bains, deux chambres à coucher et une cuisine dans laquelle rien ne manque.

Les propriétaires vivent en bas et sont super gentil et prêts à répondre à nos demandes.

Il y avait une énorme "grappe" de bananes que les propriétaires avaient mis à notre disposition. Belle attention.

Le petit village de Puerto viejo est vraiment sympatique et accessible à pieds x 20 minutes ou environ 4 minutes d'auto. La superbe plage de playa cocles est à 10-15 minutes de marche. On peut aussi se rendre en auto et se stationner sur le bord de la route.

La maison est sécuritaire et puisque les propriétaires sont pratiquement toujours là, on a pas à s'inquiéter.

Notre seule déception au final a été de ne pas louer plus longtemps.

Car: recommended

The drive from the main road to The Mango Walk while a short distance does have some portions that are steep and rocky and require 4 wheel drive. For this reason, 4 wheel drive transportation is a must. One could certainly walk or bike, but this may prove challenging with luggage or at night. Local taxis are available but one may not always be able to secure a 4 wheel drive taxi.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

A four wheel drive vehicle is a must!

Not available for check-in after 9pm.

We strongly encourage our guest to participate in our Chocolate Forest tour, this includes hike through our cacao farm, see and taste how we cultivate, harvest and process cacao into organic chocolate. Mango walk guests receive a discounted rate on the tour.
