LA Chosa De Manglar was amazing! The place is incredible, it feels like you are in the jungle with the amount of animals that are there. The place is unique for the area. My boyfriend and I spent one month there and enjoyed every minute. I would recommend at least spending 2-3 …

The location was great, very walkable to the centre of town and close to the airport for getting in and getting your bearings. We only stayed one night but would definitely return if we are in the area again.

Staff was great. Room had no fan or air conditioning, but for the cost it was fine. You are not staying at his house. IT is a large area with a number of small cabins

Response from Andrew:
It actually is my house Eli, I lived onsite for 10 years and for 7 of those 10 years it was my private family home and retreat. It's still our Osa home when we are in Puerto Jimenez. It was a perfect environment to work from and raise a family. Super close to airport. So when people stay at la Chosa they are staying in my home which has since been converted to a small collection of rooms scattered throughout 1.5 hectares of gardens, forest and mangrove, but unless you rent Casa Manglar, Monkey Hut, Kinkajou Hut ot Toucan Hut you won't have the opportunity of viewing our private residence. When we state in the announcement that it's a small cabin we mean it's a small cabin and not our home. (we checked the fan in the cabin and it seems to be working now, but sorry about any inconvenience). The cabin is an economic option to enjoy the same property as our house but without wallet grief. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.

If you're an outdoorsy nature lover like me, La Chosa del Manglar is the place for you. This was my first time traveling alone and Andrew and his crew made it so seamless and awesome. From the very first minute, when I was looking at a place to stay in Osa Peninsula, Andrew respo…

Mangrove cabin is exactly as described, situated in beautiful gardens along side a small stream within short walking distance to the town, beach and airstrip, this is ideal spot if you want to explore Corcovado national park and Puerto Jiminez. We were greeted on our arrival by…

Peter i am sorry we were unable to meet personally. I was onsite the week before your arrival, but my work keeps me away from the properties a lot of the time these days. Also sorry about the noise from a 50th birthday party. We've made some changes to our rental policy that will make this an issue of the past. You did well with animal sightings i must say. FYI we changed the fan as i understand it had a squeak. Alan is a tremendous young man and cares deeply about the property and its guests. Lili does a great job keeping it all running. However our team is made from local people with little English skills . We do hope to offer English instruction during the off season. I think we might be able to install a kettle and possibly even a small fridge in the two cabins. I'll take a look. Thanks for the feedback Peter. It's always appreciated. Cheers, Andrew

Andrew was a great host, he's so enthusiastic and will give you all details on what to know about the area. He'll also help you out planning activities. The cabin was good, in a very nice forest, with animals, and even a small croc living on the pond. Great place to stay in the p…

This hamlet of Cabinas was, in every sense, paradise. It will be difficult to use words (particularly English) to imbue the experience you will have in Puerto Jimenez and the Flora and Forna cabin, but I'll try: The gardens are green and lustrous and buzzing with wildlife on you…
