On March 13, 2020 we voluntarily closed the dormitories at the Palapa Hut Nature Hostel due to COVID 19 concerns. Shortly thereafter the Costa Rican government closed the borders and we, therefore, closed all the properties. Our last guest departed on March 22, 2020. The tourist season finished six weeks early this year. We have had no visitors since then which is creating absolute havoc for us just as it is for many small business owners throughout the world. Help us survive this catastrophe by purchasing one of our 3 Year Gift Cards, just click here

 We were given the green light to open to the public with a maximum of 50% occupancy on May 16, 2020. On the 14th of May ICT (Costa Rican Tourism Agency) published new protocols due to prevent the spread of COVID 19 which all tourist establishments must now adhere to in order to meet government protocols and therefore function healthily and legally. 

 Please know that we are doing our utmost to safeguard your health while visiting us. You will find easy access to antibacterial hand soap and alcohol while visiting us, 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. Please make a reservation upon arriving to use kitchen facilities for up to 45 minutes maximum. Sorry, but there can be no more parties in the kitchen for the time being. Fridge space is limited, so don't purchase many provisions which require refrigeration. Finally, you should know that we won't enter your room for cleaning unless you specifically ask us to do so, instead, we will be happy to mitigate the risk to our personnel who will only enter to clean the room upon your departure.

Tropical Adventures Await You!!

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.

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.
