  • Jungle paradise! Private, remote, 5 star amenities, unbeliveable views, the perfect get-away!

    "The jungle villa was the perfect setting for my company incentive trip! I, along with four couples, made this jungle paradise home for 5 days! We wanted an adventure & we got it! If you're looking for something unusual, out of the box, & most likely a never been done experience, this is it! The villa sleeps 4 couples in comfortable jungle style. We had all our meals prepared daily & they were fantastic! The sites & sounds all around us were spectacular! Everyday there were more activities than we had time to enjoy. Fishing, repelling along side waterfalls, & sailing were a blast! I highly recommend this experience to anyone with an adventurous soul!"

  • Little piece of paradise

    "Staying in this wonderful house was an experience we'll remember forever. A large and open house with a lovely pool, right in the heart of the forest. And the caretakers, Grace and Juan, really made it special - Grace's cooking was a real treat and nice not to have to cook for ourselves all the time, and Juan was a great guide to the forest nearby. (We asked Adrian for a shopping list before we went which was helpful - and might be a good thing to provide to all guests) There is lots of wildlife walking right by the house - we saw a laughing falcon take a (harmless) snake just below the house, a Tayra climbing a tree, macaws, toucans and lots of hummingbirds and butterflies - even a turtle on the beach! Some of the fixtures and fittings (window latches, wardrobe doors) have taken a little bit of a beating from the jungle, but more than compensated for by the wonderful surroundings. And you should be aware that the sound of the ocean can be quite loud, which didn't bother us - but might be a consideration for others. I'd recommend a visit to Estacion Piro just up the road, and ask Juan to take you to the other part of Adrian's estate - which you might not find by yourself and contains some amazing trees. Really a nature lovers paradise and the pool was a real treat."

  • Magic on the Osa Peninsula

    "We loved our time at Casa Sonrisa! Because this particular house sits back a bit on the hill, I think we saw even more wildlife than those closer to the beach although the view of the Golfo Dulce was beautiful too. Case Sonrisa backs up to an area that could almost be considered a monkey playground! We saw 4 types of monkeys and were given an especially funny show by the spider monkeys! The house was very comfortable and we were thankful that William was able to provide an extra mattress and mosquito net for one of our kids. The kitchen was beautifully outfitted with everything needed for a 4 day stay. I am glad that we shopped in town and brought so much food with us from Pavones because the road to Puerto Jimenez was awful and I wouldn't have wanted to drive it any more than needed. The thunder and lightening storms were amazing to watch from the open area living space! We surfed morning and evening sessions and loved that we could just walk to Playa Pan Dulce and then follow trails to other breaks. I got some of my favorite surfing pictures of our whole time in Costa Rica one evening. The houses are fit with radios that can contact the owners, William and several of the local restaurants. This came in especially handy when one of our kids left his insulin pack at Lapa Rios. We were able to call around and locate the pack and then go pick it up right away! We will definitely come back and stay again!"

  • Highly recommended

    "My girlfriend and I stayed in the cabina for a week and it was incredible. Cassidy and Rayna made planning the trip a breeze, and Guillermo was very helpful when we got there and always responsive whenever we needed a ride into town. He was ready with the boat in Sierpe when we arrived, loaded our luggage into the boat, took us to SDP (10-15 minute ride), and then walked us up to the cabina and pointed out a few things, including the group of howler monkeys sleeping in the trees, during our walk up. The 95-99 degree heat was a little intimidating at first, but the ceiling fans in the cabina make it much better and at night it would cool off to upper 70s which made it very comfortable to sleep in. The walk from the pier to the cabina is uphill and can seem somewhat steep in parts, but makes it all the more worth it as you progress from the mangroves and forest floor to the canopy, where you're cabina is sitting perched overlooking the surrounding rainforest. Plus, you get used to that walk very quickly during your stay and we had some of our best wildlife viewing while walking on this trail. There are also numerous trails to hike throughout the property. I personally recommend the mangrove trail, which takes you through the garden where you can find some fresh fruit and then it proceeds along the river. We stocked up on some fresh limes and enjoyed them with our imperial beers. We just about ran out of batteries for our camera and took over 300 pictures during our first couple of days, which shows how much you can see while staying at SDP. One of our favorite moments was hanging out on the porch in the rocking chairs and seeing a three-toed sloth lounging high up in a tree during sunset just 100 feet away from our porch. We also took the kayaks out on the tributary near the pier and I tried fly fishing for a bit, but had no luck. My favorite activity was the night hike with Cesar. He is very knowledgeable and took us out on his farm and pointed out some amazing wildlife. It is a must for all adventure seekers! We also recommend getting out to Isla del Caño for a day, whether you snorkel or go fishing. They picked us up and dropped us off right at the SDP pier for all of these trips, which was very convenient. The town of Sierpe is full of friendly locals as well as a few shops and restaurants. If you love wildlife, hiking, camping, being remote, exploring, etc., this is the place to be. We will be returning here again in the future. Thanks again, Cassidy!"
