2. Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat
Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is a naturalist's delight located in Puerto Jimenez, 300 meters to the town center, and 300 meters to the beach. It's a small group of indiscreet structures nestled into 4 acres of property bordering the mangrove, pastureland creek, and 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. Our accommodations are for people looking for an authentic, tropical experience 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.
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. Enjoy it as much as we have over the years, but please remember to clean up after yourself. If you don't want to cook just order from our neighbors, their menus are placed in the kitchen or go for a walk with easy access to more than 20 eating establishments in town, many of which will deliver their dishes for a small fee. You can walk everywhere in town so a car is not required.
Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is not just a place to lay your head, it's a truly overwhelming immersion into a tropical environment. It's our family's gift to you, so please enjoy. Check out the photo gallery if you want to see what we're talking about. We recently finalized the purchase of 235 hectares or almost 600 acres of primary rain forest on the Osa Peninsula. We have finally become carbon neutral, a long time family and business goal which we hope aids in your decision to visit us versus so many other options. Guests can now hike and/or camp in the rainforest, at the beach, or in town, so ask about our excursions at check-in or contact us through the website.
