Booking last minute during "spring break" (oops) meant that we got to sample 3 out of the 4 fabulous rooms on offer at Jungle Creek. The little touches make this place really special... All the apartments were clean and well appointed with lovely bathrooms (hot power showers and fluffy white towels), bedrooms (amazingly comfortable beds with nice linen) and very... More

Spent 10 nights with a group of Horticulture students from Maine. Paula was extremely helpful with providing places to visit, restaurant recommendations as well as helping to line up transportation shuttles. The villas were clean and well kept. The plants, birding and wildlife viewing off the patio was phenomenal. I would highly recommend Jungle Creek and hope to get down... More

While on a class trip with 12 others, Jungle Creek really felt like home. Paula and Clark were always ready to answer questions, make transportation reservation and give suggestions on what to do. On days where we would be on tours in almost 100 degree weather, coming home to Jungle Creek and taking a dip in the pool was always... More

I stayed at Jungle Creek last month with my fellow horticulture classmates and professors and it was the perfect place. The owners, Paula and Clark, are very friendly and helpful. Paula made all of our reservations for our transportation to our destinations and checked in with us every day to see if we needed anything. They are so nice and... More

Staying here is like visiting with old friends. Paula and Clark are a nice combination of relaxed and super helpful. They really want to share the "Pura Vida" they have found here. Excellent recommendations for everything from burgers to a breakfast with a view to die for. The dirt road from the main road is a little rough but not... More

I came to Costa Rica with a group of 12 students and professors from the US. Jungle Creek was the perfect place for us to stay- plenty of space (we rented 3 of the villas), beautiful outdoor patio/pool, amazing wildlife, easy access to the bus and both Manuel Antonio and Quepos. Very private and quiet but close to everything! It... More

This place is amazing. Very good location between Quepos and MA, close to the bus stop and more important, it's nestled in the jungle! Paula and Clark were great hosts with a lot of very good recommendations. Clean and well appointed rooms and a nice gift basket made this the perfect play to stay! Highly recommended.

I was hesitating on the score for this review as the jungle creek has both pros and cons. Let's start with the good! The hosts, Paula and Clark, are simply fantastic. They are friendly and really go out of their way to make your stay and comfortable and as fun as possible. You can trust them eyes closed with their... More

We got the "Dos Palmas" which was very big. It is a very equipped apartment, nice and spacious. it can easily inhabits 6-8 peoples but has only one toilet. The description in their site is an exact matching of the place. The stay there was quite nice, but they had some problem with the plumbing and in the early morning,... More
