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

Conveniently located, small and charming with a great kitchen and a community feel. The best reason to stay here though is the owner, Mark. He went out of his way to help me make the most of my visit to Puerto Jimenez. He arranged an amazing overnight trip into Corcovado National Park when all the other tour guides said it... More

I was planning to stay in Costa Rica for only 2 weeks and continue my trip to Panama, but this place charmed me to a point that I decided to extend my stay in Costa Rica and make an in depth exploration of Osa Peninsula. The great value of this place is the host, Mark Corn, who not only arranged... More

Long story short - everything is already said by the other 5star reviews: Great value, really nice & clean & comfortable rooms with A/C and bathroom, common used kitchen in nice atmosphere... but most important the friendly and helpful host - Mark. As an expert of this area he will support you with all options you have including organization of... More
