About the Property

Tucked in the jungle and close to the beach

THE JUNGLE HOUSE is an outstanding destination for those seeking at the comforts of a home, amid the wild, natural beauty of Costa Rica!
Location:
THE JUNGLE HOUSE is located just 5km (3 mile) from Playa Hermosa (Hermosa Beach).
Located on the Central Pacific coastline, Playa Hermosa is just ten minutes south of Jaco Beach (Playa Jacó).
THE JUNGLE HOUSE is only 1 ½ hours from Juan Santa Maria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica.
If you are planning to drive from the airport, the new highway will take you on an enjoyable trip with amazing views of the mountains and down to the beach. We will provide you all the directions to get to your destination. If you prefer to have someone pick-you up from the airport, just let us know! We can book it for you.
Attractions and activities:
Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.
In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants and a couple mini markets. We recommend VIDA Hermosa Restaurant. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!
In Jaco (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from, casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops… etc…
Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch, as you watch the monkeys jump from tree to tree around you. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the river (about 10 min drive down the road).
If you are looking for activities, to do during your stay at THE JUNGLE HOUSE. We can provide you all the information you need.

Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.

It is a beautiful and quiet beach. Between the months of July and December, it also becomes one of Costa Rica´s sea turtle nesting site. Where lucky nature watchers can see these lovely beasts; coming ashore at night, to lay their eggs on secluded beaches.

Please remember you will need a 4x4 vehicle to stay at this property.

There are many places to visit and all kind of activities to do just a short drive away from our properties.

Since this a very touristic area, you can find many activities to enjoy outdoors with family and friends.

We definitely recommend the CANOPY TOUR, it´s a very cool experience to be traveling across the jungle from tree to tree !

We also recommend ATV Tours. You can choose from a couple of hours to a full day tour. You will be traveling on dirt roads in the mountains, thru little rural towns. If you prefer to be a little more adventurous, and if you have motorcycle experience. We also own COSTA RICA UNLIMITED: The best Dirt bike tour company in Costa Rica! We get riders from all over the world. In case you might be interested to join us on the best ride of your life ;-) One thing is for sure, if you choose this activity, you will enjoy some of the most amazing views around.

If you want to walk around nature and do some wildlife viewing, we recommend 'Manuel Antonio National Park' (about 45 min south), you will see all kinds of animals, and don´t forget your swim suit, there is also a amazing white sand beach, and some very good restaurants!

Horseback riding is also a very good option. Talk to our good friend Andrea, she will be happy to take you for an astonishing ride on the beach, rivers and jungle. 100% fun Guaranty !

Restaurants / drinks and others:

In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants. We recommend VIDA Hermosa. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!

In Jacó (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops…

Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, toucans and the macaws flying overhead. You will probably also see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree, around THE JUNGLE HOUSE.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We moved to Costa Rica over 10 and 20 years ago respectively. We love it here ! And we want to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
Our properties have a little of everything. It´s nice to be close from town but not in the middle of it. It´s also located just a few minutes from the beach. And very secure. It´s perfect to enjoy nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It´s all about the feeling ! It´s hard to describe. It´s like having a suite in the middle of the jungle ! We also have a beautiful canopy bridge on the property just a few meters away, where sometimes you can see the monkeys play in the morning and afternoon !
