- SQM 400
Event planning and catering available upon request. If you're looking for a natural space on the Osa for a lot of people then Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat has you covered.
Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is a tropical garden lodge sitting on a 4 acre property which wild animals traverse twice daily, once in the morning and again in the afternoon. The lodge is a camouflaged collection of modern cabanas, suites, and rooms supplemented by raised trailways, bridges, open-air lounges, pond and a swimming pool. All of these modern comforts are strategically located for viewing a stream of animal activity which occurs 24/7 on the property.
The Chosa was designed as a hub to relax and transition into and out of the intensely tropical Osa peninsula. Our accommodations offer simple & authentic experiences at prices that still let you enjoy the experience. Adjacent to the rich Pacific waters of the Golfo Dulce and within short drives to world-class beaches great for surfing and the Osa’s primary travel destination: Corcovado National Park. Separate from La Chosa’s central property, we offer a remote Beach Hut and an even more remote Mountain Hut in the interior of the Osa overlooking Corcovado National Park. We strive to vigorously maintain a healthy level of cleanliness and comfort amidst this primeval Osa jungle and the wild tropical waters of the Pacific ocean.
Nuzzled in a strip of jungle-land which pierces the neighborhoods of a small, travel friendly beach-town, the large grounds are part of a main diurnal and nocturnal through-way for a diverse collection of exotic animals. A stay here, is a true jungle experience but within a 5-minute walk from the Osa Peninsula’s human center, Puerto Jiménez. Visitors routinely report that they see more wildlife here than at many other Costa Rica locations including national parks. We're a 2 minute walk to Puerto Jimenez airport, National Park office & several car rentals. A 5 minute walk to town-center (large grocery, various small stores, tour operators, banks, gas station, bike rentals, boutique’s, bus station, taxi’s, etc.) An 8 minute walk to Puerto Jimenez beachfront (Sandy beach, main boat dock, several restaurants, bars, boat tour operators, kayak rentals, mangroves).
Wi-fi is available in common areas of the property. We offer a large communal kitchen, a tropical hardwood bar, expert local advice and arrangement of jungle guides and tourist services, several open air lounges, night lighting, internal walking trail, cold beer, juice & sodas, parking lot, 24/7 office, free coffee and tea, wake up knocks, safe at reception, receipt of faxes and bicycle parking.
La Chosa is a true birder’s paradise - you don't need to leave the property to see impressive Macaws, Toucans, Tanagers, Fly-Catchers and numerous other varieties of exotic birds playing throughout the gardens. There is a small internal trail and a few unique chill spots, so you can now view more wildlife than ever before. Make sure you walk the paths with your cameras ready.
Common wildlife sightings on the property include: Four species of Monkeys, Kinkajous, Raccoons, Coatis, Anteaters, Sloths, Armadillos, Raptors, Toucans, Scarlet Macaws, Crocodiles, Lizards, Snakes, Hummingbirds, Iguanas and many other Birds, Insects and Reptiles.
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 or during check-in.
