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

My friend and I stayed at Mark's place for two nights (arrival night and departure night) when we did our hike through Corcovado National Park. The room was comfortable, clean and cool (there's AC in the room). I actually like that the bathroom was not in the room and it was "open" so that you don't have that damp feeling.... More

I stayed at Cabinas Tropicales because it was recommended by Lonely Planet, and I am so glad I did. The rooms are clean, comfortable, air conditioned and have good WiFi connection and hot showers. The place looks brand new. It's definitely a great value. Plus there is an open area kitchen with everything you need to fix your own meals... More

Stayed for two nights here and it was amazing. The kitchen is nice and clean and the room was spacious, renovated, and very clean. The owner, Marcus, was awesome. He was so nice and very helpful. If you are traveling through this town I wouldn't suggest anywhere else to stay but here!
