This large secluded property has so much wildlife! Some cheeky capuchin monkeys even put on a show for us right in the common area. It manages to have this natural feel while still being a short and safe walk from everywhere you could need to go in Puerto Jimenez. There are rooms to suit all needs and budgets. I loved this place and Puerto Jimenez!

Thanks for your two visits Maria. It's always nice when guests return. The dorm is getting great feedback and why not, all the amenities of La Chosa at a fantastic price. I think we're going to add another dorm just so we can keep up with demand. It's a struggle with dorm showers, but we'll continue to better the standard as we learn to work with the dorm crowd. Cheers, Andrew

The location is really good and we enjoyed the place. We've been unlucky with our roomates but that's not Andrew's fault.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay Alexandre. As we all know dormitories offer different challenges than private accommodations. sorry to hear you had poor roommates.

It was my second stay in la chosa del Manglar and it was as enjoyable as the first one. Great place close to the city of Puerto Viejo, but separated by trees from the traffic and noise. On site bar and food, and you can also prepare your own in the common kitchen. If you want a calm place surrounded by trees to relax with a family atmosphere, this is it.

It's a great place with lots of trees (you almost feel in the jungle). Air conditioning even in the dorms, the staff is very friendly and the host was very accommodating when I asked for extras. They also offer on site help to organise tours. If you want to spend a few days or a week in a friendly environment, this is the place. One last thing, you have to try Andrew's home made "chili con carne".

I've been living in the Tropics since 1991. I married Jacqui in 1993 and we have spent the last 25 years living most of the time on the OSA peninsula of southern Costa Rica and Atenas in the hills of the central valley reputed to have the best climate on earth for human habitation.

We know that most hosts that have multiple listings are agents but in our case we are the owners of most of the listings while a few friends own the rest. It's all about unique locations and we have a number of them with unparalleled location, flora and fauna. Some of our offerings are a small hotel in Puerto Jimenez with different kinds of accommodations, a large four bedroom tropical home also in PJ, a cool laid back beach cabin and an escape to the OSA interior both on the Osa, 2 hostels both on the Osa and finally a truly magnificent home in Atenas offering fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding mountains. FYI -all animal fotos were taken on our properties, so bring a camera and enjoy.

We understand internet is a huge thing for a lot of travelers, so we have done a few speed tests at Casa Manglar & La Chosa del Manglar and posted the results as fotos for you to see. They are the last fotos on each listing. We have a 10 MB connection in Puerto Jimenez but please take into account that when there are numerous visitors that speeds slow down or if it is raining hard then internet service can be slow and/or intermittent.
