  • Caught a TON of Sailfish with Diablo Sportfishing while Staying at Jungle Mountain Bungalow

    "My 6 day visit (2/18 - 2/23) was set up to assess Costa Rica as a final destination for this retired marine biologist and especially its offshore big game fishing situation. As someone who has fished all over the world (see www.BigMarineFish.com), I had selected CR as the best potential spot for my retirement and I was not disappointed! I also chose to stay at the Jungle Mountain Bungalows, owned by Capt. Kevin Malone and his wonderful wife, Alyson, to see what living up high in that less developed part of CR might be like. You can see from their website’s photos that the bungalows are really nice, stocked with everything you might need, bathed by cool breezes each evening (no AC needed up there on the mountain), surrounded by virtually pristine tropical rainforest (CR has the greatest biodiversity of any place in the world), unspoiled yet largely un-populated beaches along the beautiful coast, with dramatic sunset views of the Pacific from the bungalows’ porches. Idyllic. Driving up and down the mountain (4x4 required) was an adventure in itself. Kevin Malone is a top notch charter captain, extremely skilled in all the little details of big game fishing (such as rigging ballyhoo baits to look to a sailfish as if it were a real swimming baitfish) that make all the difference between just a nice boat ride vs. a day filled with the best fishing one could possibly enjoy (as I experienced with him, twice). The night before, we had decided to target sailfish offshore on my two days, so we got up early and Kevin drove his center console about 25 miles across a choppy Pacific to an underwater mountain known as the Furuno Bank where we fished both days. On day 1 we raised 9 sailfish and brought 7 to the boat to be fully revived prior to their release – which I viewed as an extremely good day’s outing. But he topped that performance the following day, going 9 for 11. These sailfish are big, 7 to 8 feet long and ours were about 90 to 125 lbs – more than twice as large as those I’ve caught in the Florida Keys – and since they spend a lot of energy jumping, sailfish are spectacular to fight. Ours usually took about 20-25 minutes to finally bring close enough for Kevin to grab their bill and remove the circle hook before release. On day 2, I had 30 minutes left on my charter “clock” but told Kevin to just “head for the barn” as I was exhausted and had had enough. All told, our sailfish would have added up to about 2,000 lbs! Can’t imagine better fishing."

  • Great getaway!

    "My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Casa Bambu and had a great time! We stayed in mid-October and had so much fun exploring the jungle and taking in all of the wildlife. The house is a private, romantic spot for two located right in the middle of lush rainforest. We loved waking up to the incredible view of Playa Ballena and to tucans feasting on the trees outside our window. The house phone was an added bonus and really helped us navigate Uvita and the surrounding areas. The property managers were extremely accommodating, as well, and were available to answer any questions we had. Our stay was a very fun, adventurous way to start our marriage!"

  • Pura Vida!!!!!!!

    "This little casita and all its surroundings were perfection to us. We had read all the glowing reviews before booking, but it is always a leap of faith to travel thousands of miles to a new destination. Everything the other guests had written is true, but words can't capture the breathtaking view, the lovely scents and exotic sounds, and the utter tranquility of this place. Do come here, do absorb all the sights and sounds of each dawn and dusk, do relax on the beach club beach (which we had almost exclusively to ourselves in the mornings), do bring light weight clothes (it's hot!), and do luxuriate in the villa pool if no one is renting it:)! We balanced our time between relaxing and fabulous outings. We highly recommend the Osa peninsula zip line tour, the Corcovada National park guided tour with boat ride, and the horseback ride to Nauyaca Falls. LOVED it all!!!!"

  • Family Retreat

    "Family of five getting away from the hustle of life. The house is absolutely beautiful, and the photos really don't do it justice. The wrap around deck and private pool with waterfall are great , and the views are amazing. It is a 15 min drive to main road, so when you venture out it is usually for the day. The electricity went out a few times while we were there-but other then that it was awesome. Howler monkeys, toucans, and lizards definitely entertained us. Uvita 360 was great for surfing, beach club was great- good body surfing. la Fogata became one of our favorite places to eat- we also enjoyed Sibu (amazing coffee), and The Bakers Bean is a great spot to pick up fresh emenadas to go. Thanks for sharing your home- very spacious and lovely."
