Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat
Greetings English speakers, come and enjoy. Hola Amigos Españoles, vengan y disfrutar la naturaleza! Ciao amici Italiani, vieni a visitare e divertiti! Bonjour amis Français, venez visiter et profiter de la nature. Hallo Deutsche Freunde, komm und genieße die Natur.
Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is a naturalist's delight. It's a small group of indiscreet structures nestled into 4 acres of property bordering the mangrove, creek & forest. Some species of animals live on-site while others traverse twice daily, in the morning and again in the afternoon. It's a camouflaged collection of rooms and cabins connected by trails, raised walkways & bridges supplemented with garden sitting areas, hammocks, open-air lounges and a raised swimming pool.
La Chosa is located in Puerto Jimenez, 300 meters to the town center and 300 meters to the beach. La Chosa offers easy access to more than 20 eating establishments in town, many of which will deliver their dishes to La Chosa but you can walk everywhere in town so no car is required.
Our accommodations are for people looking for an authentic, tropical experience at a great 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.
Common wildlife sightings on the property include: Four species of Monkey, Kinkajou, Raccoon, Coatis, Armadillo, Anteater, Sloth, Raptors, 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 open-air lounge is decorated with beautiful, hand painted murals showcasing the "Monkey Bar" complete with a transparent ceiling and a "suita palm" palapa roof. The large communal kitchen is loaded with everything you need to cook up a storm. It's great for socializing. Please enjoy it as much as we have over the years but remember to clean up after yourself. If you don't want to cook just order from our neighbours, their menus are placed in the kitchen
Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is not just a place to lay your head, it's a truly overwhelming immersion into a tropical environment with a truly AFFORDABLE price. It's our family's gift to you & yours, so please enjoy! Check out our photo gallery if you want to see what we're talking about or better yet, when in town stop by and ask to see the grounds. We'll be happy to show you around.
We recently finalized the purchase of 235 hectares or almost 600 acres of primary rain forest on the Osa Peninsula. We have become carbon neutral, a long time family and business goal. Guests can now hike and/or camp in town, the rainforest or on the beach, so ask us about excursion options by contacting us through this site, at check-in.
