  • 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!!!!"

  • 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."

  • Lattice House was a Costa Rica paradise!!

    "The Lattice Housd was AMAZING!! The house manager, Ana, was awesome! She arranged us transportation from and back to the San Jose airport for our 2 families, for a total of 8 people (kids ranged from 14-17 in age). She also arranged for us to have rental cars delivered to the house. (This is a must to get around the area and explore! - 4 WD is highly recommended for several places we went to.) The evening of our arrival, she meet us at the house and arranged for us to have dinner prepared (full course meal - and they cook an clean up!) by a local lady named Alexandria! She was amazing and it was very reasonably priced for what we got compared to cooking ourselves or going out to dinner!! Well worth it!! We had her come back 2-3 additional times!! One of the best things we did!!! Ana showed us all around the house! It's gorgeous! The master suite was incredible! The other 3 bedrooms are very roomy and comfortable as well! There are 2 queen rooms and a room with 2 twins! Perfect for our families! All bedrooms were air conditioned! The kitchen was very nice and well stocked! The pool and back porch area is where we stayed the whole time if we were at the house! We ate most of our meals out there too! The infinity pool was incredible! Everyone loved it! The view to the ocean was amazing and breath taking! Couldn't get over it every morning how beautiful it was!! The beaches are very close! Just down the driveway and a short distance down towards Uvita! But check out all the local beaches! They are incredible!! The property has several hiking trails and a waterfall and tons of wildlife!! We saw monkeys, birds, and tons of other stuff every morning! Our kids loved doing that more than hanging out at the beach! They loved exploring and hiking to waterfalls! But they loved the beach (whales tail especially) too! Plays Ventanas was very fun too! We also took a day to do Antonio Manuel national park! Go early and spend all day!! Ana also arranged our 2 excursions. We did horseback riding to Nauyaca Waterfslls!! Along with the horseback riding adventure, we got a light breakfast and a full lunch!! The price was a bargain for everything we got on this experience! It was amazing!! Most of us climbed the waterfall and jumped off and swam in the water! It was very fun!! The guides assist with that as well! The other excursion was Osa Canopy Tours! It was incredible! We loved it!! This was by far one of the best vacations we've ever taken!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND"

  • Wonderful home with a beautiful view!

    "We loved this wonderful secluded home! The outdoor spaces were amazing with breathtaking views. It's a bit of a trek getting from the place to town (20 mins) only because of the rock road up the mountain but it was a fun adventure each time. Would definitely recommend staying here if you venture to Uvita!!"
