Escape to the Tropics is our digital gateway to paradise at Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat, Titi Guest House, Casa Manglar, Cara Blanca Apartment, and La Palapa Hut Nature Hostel and Campground. They are all located in the heart of Puerto Jimenez on 14000 m2 or 4 acres. With only 19 rooms on the entire property, this means that all guests have ample space while visiting us. We don't have any crowded areas. In March 2020 we did a complete rework of our front garden sitting area. We added many tables for outdoor enjoyment of the flora and fauna as well as a new fire pit. We also did some attractive facelifts throughout the property. The pond area is maturing nicely. The property is a great place to get away from it all. If you check google maps you will see that we are completely under tree cover. We are located in a park-like setting unlike so many other accommodations in town. So, if you are looking for a green experience with lots of personal space, full of tropical life, and with reasonable prices, then look no further because you have arrived.  


We are doing our utmost to safeguard your health while visiting us. We start by asking you to register online using our new digital registration form. We may also email your invoice and/or process your credit card before arriving. A contactless check-in procedure reduces the risk of infection for everyone, so we would very much appreciate your cooperation.  When you arrive you will find easy access to antibacterial hand soap, sanitizing gel, and alcohol while visiting, so please use it freely. We also ask that you keep at least 1.8 meters or 6 feet distant from personnel and other guests as well as wearing a face covering when less than 6 feet from others. We reutilized the bar area into a communal kitchen offering lots of space for our guests to cook. You may also order something to eat from a variety of local restaurants. We have some of their menus on-site and are happy to order for you and they are happy to deliver for a small fee, usually less than 2 dollars.

Finally, you should know that we won't enter your room for cleaning unless you specifically ask us to do so, instead, we are happy to mitigate risk for both guests and associates alike. We will only enter to clean your room upon request and after your departure. Towels can be exchanged at the front desk.

Pura Vida,

Familia Gray Ortega and Team

You can Check-Out at Check-In, but for now just relax, breathe deep and take a few moments to explore a pristine corner of the tropics. We are located on the beautiful Osa Peninsula in the south pacific of Costa Rica where Jaguars and Tapirs still roam the lush, green forests of Corcovado National Park, and where Whales, Dolphins and Turtles all frolic in the deep blue waters of the protected Golfo Dulce

We believe the best way to truly enjoy a visit to this tiny corner of the world is to surround yourself in the natural history of the area. Walk the forest and get out on the water. If you do both, you will fall in love with the Osa and remember it for a lifetime. You won’t remember your room a decade from now, but you will remember the gardens with a multitude of trees, plants, flowers, butterflies, insects, monkeys, hummingbirds, scarlet macaws, toucans and iguanas to name just a few species. Everywhere you look something is living, breathing, and moving. After all, isn’t that why you’re visiting Costa Rica?

We offer a comprehensive Digital Gateway to Adventure, Lodgings, Activities, Tours, Transportation, Real Estate & Business Opportunities in southern Costa Rica where you can review and reserve independent adventures, nature retreats, hotels, guesthouses, B&B's, hostels, and campgrounds. Remember that hammocking, hiking, trekking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and diving all enhance your tropical escape.

The site menu is at the top right of all pages. You may choose your preferred language and currency at the bottom left of any page. Property videos are shown below. We're happy to work with groups so just reach out to us at your convenience and we'll be happy to work with you.

Each property offers a unique interaction with mother nature. They all cater to people that enjoy tropical adventures, friendly, local service, and great prices. Owners and team members know the local people, language, customs, landscapes, and attractions making us ideally suited to help plan your next tropical adventure.

We help our visitors create wonderful tropical adventures, but we also help property owners create & manage a dynamic, digital presence. Decades of hands-on experience combined with an owner's attention to detail have allowed us to assemble a robust digital presence for both individual and multi-unit properties with a seamlessly integrated online reservation & payment system.
