If you're seeking for a unique place to stay in the wild and far from town, this is the best option. You are living with basic facilities, but you still have everything you need up there. Everything is open air at this hostel; there are no doors or windows and the toilets and showers are outdoors. The whole land and... More

me and my friends went to bolita without any expectation and we were pleasantly surprised. if you can handle the 30 mins hike to get up there you will be rewarded with one of costa rica's most beatiful place. the bolita trails are just nature at its best. Waterfalls, monkeys and all other kinds of beautiful creatures

As a volunteer I got to see the beauty that is Bolita for three weeks! And trust me it was hard to leave. The place is gorgeous and situated near the boarder of Corcovado National Park. They have just renovated and added many more washrooms and showers. The shower is so nice one could almost forget they are in the... More

I can only confirm everything that has already been said: Bolita is a hidden gem, a lost hostel in a big jungle. This is THE place to be for low-maintenance travellers, nature passionates, or anyone in search for a peace of mind. Honestly: Don't miss this experience! Especially now that it has not yet been explored by the big mass!... More

Very nice place, located in the middle of the jungle. Remote and surrounded by beautiful nature and animals. Lots of trials you can hike and enjoy nature meanwhile. Also Ron is a super nice and friendly person who will attend to all your needs! Check it out!

We was here as volunteers and we had a prefect time at the Bolita. Ron, the owner is a very friendly and funny guy. The place is amazing, totally lost in the jungle of Corcovado...with incredible vegetation, animals... We will definitively come back if we come back to Costa Rica.

Bolita is stunning. Set on a mountain in the jungle, the views are breathtaking and the treks invigorating. We spent a few days hiking through the rainforest, up river and close to the boundary of the national park. In the afternoon you can crash in a hammock with a good book and watch the toucans fly back and forth through... More

A wonderful place near the jungle. Great trails with awesome views. Don't miss the river walk! The owner and the volunteers are very welcoming. I have one of my best experience in Costa Rica in this place.

Bolita is beautiful completely surrounded by nature. You have the choice of sleeping in the house or in the brand new cabinas. The owner Ron is really friendly and helpful. The best part about Bolita is that it is clothing optional!

After travelling for over a year, this is making it to the top 3 places I've ever stayed at. If you're looking for a cheap and unique way to experience nature (or Corcovado, since it borders it and is the same jungle), then this is the place for you! This place is truly magical. I opened my eyes one morning... More
