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!

Our stay in Cabinas Tropicales was a last minute decision, but it turned out to be the highlight of our entire backpacking trip to Costa Rica! Marcus, the owner, was so welcoming and an amazing host! It was like staying in the garden of Eden. Marcus fed us fresh coconut and papaya right out of his front yard! Tons of... More

We enjoyed our three nights at Cabinas Tropicales. The room was spacious and clean, and the owner was friendly and helpful. He helped arrange a guide for us. We appreciated the laid back atmosphere as well. It was also close to restaurants and services.

We stayed here for a couple of night before and after the jungle trekking. The owner was very nice and flexible. The accommodation is good and the place has a nice vibe. The owner is very enthusiastic and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place. Good air conditioning.

We stayed here with a group of 14 guys. Great time and we were recommended to one of the best jungle tours. Great facilities as well. Would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling into Gulfes Dulce.
