Chosa Manglar Hotel

Check-Out @ Check-In when you stay at Chosa Manglar Hotel. It's a naturalist's delight located in the very heart of Puerto Jimenez, 300 meters from both the town center and the beach. It's a small group of indiscreet structures nestled into four acres of property bordering the mangrove, pastureland, creek, and forest. It's a camouflaged collection of rooms, villas, and cabins connected by trails, raised walkways & bridges leading to outdoor sitting areas, trails, ponds, hammocks & open-air lounges. 

The property is for authentic people looking for authentic, tropical immersion at a reasonable price. We strive diligently to maintain a healthy level of cleanliness & comfort in this crazy, wild spot between the primeval Osa forest of Corcovado & the abundant, tropical waters of the "Golfo Dulce" & Pacific Ocean.

Many animals live on-site while others traverse in the morning and again in the afternoon. It's a great 'birding hotspot' with 85 species observed to date. Common wildlife sightings on the property include all four species of Monkey, Kinkajou, Raccoon, Coatis, Armadillo, Anteater, Sloth, Raptors, Ocelots, Toucans, Scarlet Macaw, Crocodile, Cayman, Lizards, Snakes, Beetles, Hummingbirds, Butterflies, Herons, Iguanas & various other Birds, Insects, Reptiles & Amphibians. 

When you need a break from the wildlife, kick back and enjoy the colorful surroundings & tropical amenities. The outdoor garden lounge has been designed to offer lots of physical space for all visitors. The new fire pit is used by guests for an impromptu BBQ. 

Try ordering food from our neighbors. Their menus can be found at the bar or go for a walk with easy access to more than fifteen eating establishments in town. Many will deliver for a small fee if you decide to hang out in the gardens. You can walk everywhere in town, so a car is not required. Chosa Manglar Hotel offers effortless immersion into a tropical paradise, so please enjoy it as much as we have over the years. 

Pura Vida, 

Familia Gray Ortega & Team 'Escape to the Tropics and Chosa Manglar Hotel".
