We spent 3 days in Puerto Jimenez (prior and after a trip to Corcovado National Park) and were enchanted by our stay at Cabinas Tropicales. Rooms are basic but nice, clean, and spacious. Air con works perfectly. The "lobby" is a cozy open space full of plants and flowers where you can have a drink while chatting with other travelers... More

For a very reasonable price, this place (designed and built and by Mark, the owner) gives you a clean, air-conditioned room and a comfortable common area where you can visit with fellow travelers, who are likely to be in the area to visit Corcovado National Park. During my visit, I found Mark to be extremely helpful in arranging a cost... More

We stayed there as a couple in room #1 and it was perfect for our needs. We slept there one night before the 3 days hike, and another night after the hike. Mark, the owner, was not there during our stay, but the local guy that replaced him was just great. We felt very safe to leave our stuff there... More

Captain Mark is very hospitable and ensured we got to the Corcovada National Park as promised. The Cabins are very well maintained and affordable, and are walking distance to the airport. Great place to base yourself if you want to visit Corcovada National Park.

Mark has created an amazing oasis in the middle of puerto Jimenez! Hammocks, a cozy couch, outdoor showers, warm water, some of the best wifi, great tunes, relaxed atmosphere - what more could you want!? The room was huge and very clean. I had a fantastic time here and met wonderful people! Thanks again Mark!!! Cheers!

We stayed here the night before and the night after a three-day, 2-night trek in Corcovado national Park. Mark is a great host. The rooms are clean, the outdoor kitchen is great, and there are lots of nice hammocks to lay in. We particularly appreciated being able to leave our bags with Mark while we were on our three-day hike.... More

As almost all other travelers who visited Cabinas Tropicales we had a very pleasant stay during the three nights we have been here! Before we ended up at Mark's place for three nights we have seen some other places in Puerto Jiminez. That's why we can say this is a very nice place to stay. It felt like staying at... More

Mark is a wonderful guy. He has lived in Costa Rica for 22 years and he knows people and places. Whithin an hour he arranged a flight into Corcovado NP with an excellent guide and two other guests of his Cabinas. He also could give loads of information about places around on peninsula de Osa. Rooms are the cleanest and... More

Mark Corn has a perfect place to stay in Jiminez. We stayed in mid january before and after we did the 3 day Corcovado national park hike with Surcos tours. HIs cabinas are located a few minutes walk from the airstrip and there is a small family grocery store right beside him. The walk to main street for larger food... More

We were referred here by another lodging which was full. We arrived late in the evening weary from our long ride to Puerto Jimenez and were received warmly and provided a large room (no extra charge since it was not occupied), with AC. The room was basic, but large, quiet and clean with hot shower. Mark the owner gave very... More
