So many great reviews and they're all true so I'll keep this mainly informative. Group of five stayed for one week, picked up at airport and shuttled to Mundo Milo. A few days later Budget rental in Tamarindo dropped off our rental at the lodge. We were able to drop the same rental at airport at end of our trip.... More

We recommend flying into the Liberia Airport instead of San Jose for its ease of travel. Mundo Milo is (nearly) a straight 1-1/2 hour drive down the coast after picking up your SUV at the airport. You'll find a small, quiet lodge with hands-on hosts willing to take the time with you. Any questions about your itinerary or problems can... More

There is nothing I could write about Mundo Milo that could do it justice. But I'll try... My husband and I just returned from an 8 day honeymoon at Mundo Milo in Junquillal and it's a trip we will never forget. We stayed in the more rustic African Cabina. It was spacious and clean and was equipped with a small... More

It's not a super fancy place but the simply appointed rooms are comfortable and clean with little porches and nice bathrooms. The open-aired dining "room" and awesome little pool area were both great places to chill out and socialize (I went with 4 friends). Michael and Lieke have created an extremely welcoming and low-key relaxing environment. We felt so at... More

Mundo Milo Ecolodge is owned and managed by a wonderful Dutch couple: gracious, friendly, and concerned for the enjoyment of guests. There are numerous activities in the region, as indicated on their website, though it helps to have a car (especially a high-clearance vehicle like a small SUV). The food is outstanding--wonderfully flavorful, well-plated and well-served. We stayed in the... More

No doubts about it, this is a great place to spend a couple of nights/days if you're looking for a relaxing vacation. Lieke and Michiel (and the rest of the staff) made sure we had a pleasant stay with courteous and friendly service. Beware this is an Eco Lodge, so it's surrounded by nature, and most likely you'll get to... More

After arriving at my reserved cabin in Playa Callejones and finding that my cabin was rented out with no additional availability, I was forced to seek accommodations elsewhere. What could have been a bad situation was quickly reversed when we stumbled upon Mundos Milos just south of where we originally planned to stay. Lieke & Michael were sitting on the... More

My husband and I stayed at Mundo Milo for 7 nights on our honeymoon. We had booked the lodge based on its fantastic reviews, and we were not disappointed! Below is our quick synopsis of the lodge and its surroundings: -We loved that the lodge was small enough to feel secluded and private yet the owners, Lieke and Michiel, and... More

Do not miss this place!! It just located off the main road and has a wonderfully nice wait staff. Walking distance to the Pacific Ocean. Turtle reserve and local restaurants in town. A must stop if your in the area. A little slice of the good life. Good job guys and keep up the awesome work. Pura Vida

We loved our stay at Mundo Milo and definitively felt like coming to visit friends. First, we were offered some homemade limonade and he had some nice chat. No emergency to go directly to our bedroom, we 1st enjoyed the bar atmosphere and our hosts. My boyfriend had been sick during all our way from Tortuguero and Lieke gave him... More
