Escape to the Tropics is delighted to partner with Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat, a tropical property located on the pristine, Osa Peninsula, in the South Pacific of Costa Rica. Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat offers something for most tastes and most budgets. It's a perfect place to de-stress, unwind, and chill out, all the while connecting with nature. 

It's an urban property of 1.4 hectares or 4 acres of forest, creek, pond, mangrove, and pastureland in the very heart of Puerto Jimenez, on the insanely biodiverse Osa Peninsula. Guests choose their preferred lodging style from Chosa Manglar Hotel, Casa Manglar Villa, La Palapa Hut Hostel, and Chosa Royale Retreat. With only eighteen rooms on the property, guests always have lots of personal space while visiting. Osa Adventure Center is happy to help with local transportation, tours, activities, and adventures whether online or onsite. 

All four species of monkeys native to Costa Rica visit the property, as do about ninety species of birds including Scarlet Macaws and several types of Toucans. The property is recognized as an urban, birding hotspot (https://ebird.org/hotspot/L12100175). Many mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and insects also visit or reside on-site, including two types of sloth, crocodiles, caimans, lizards, frogs, toads, anteaters, raccoons, armadillos, coatis, serpents, kinkajous, possums, butterflies, dragonflies, moths, damselflies, and beetles to name just a few. Unlike many local accommodations, we are located beneath a huge green canopy in the small town of Puerto Jimenez. Check Google Maps to see for yourself, https://g.page/ChosaManglar?share. Website photos of terrestrial animals and insects were taken at Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat.

Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat is ideally located twenty meters from a laundromat, thirty meters from a general store, one hundred meters from the small engine airport (no jets, no noise), 175 meters from Corcovado National Park office, 225 meters from car rentals, three hundred meters from the local beach, and three hundred meters from the town center. We can accommodate up to fifty-four guests in a variety of accommodation styles. If you are looking for a place to host your next retreat, just click the link, Chosa Royale Retreat and Event Center, and then contact us to discuss dates and options.

We offer guests and visitors alike a Tropical Experience with both manicured and wild gardens connected by raised walkways, trails, paths, and bridges, with chairs, tables, and benches placed throughout the property. We recommend that guests and visitors spend some time exploring the property, otherwise you will miss many photo opportunities. Mama Jackie's Garden is the perfect spot to sit back, view animals, have a drink, enjoy some tasty food, listen to music, meet new friends, connect to WIFI, share local info, and best of all, tell tall tropical tales with newfound friends.

If you want to experience a little of La Chosa before arriving, join our Chosa Nature Photo Group via WhatsApp. It was created to share photos of the flora and fauna at the property for all of us who work here. We have since discovered that guests and visitors alike also want a little bit of La Chosa to brighten their day before and after a visit. Feel free to share your Chosa Flora and Fauna photos but only those, please. It's a wonderful way to see what's visiting and onsite. Click on the WhatsApp Icon below to see what's waiting for you at Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat! Don't be shy, we welcome your participation. Pura Vida!
