Quiet, rustic cabins on the edge of town with basic but functional accomodation. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and very keen to ensure that you enjoy your stay. The breakfast was very good, beds were comfortable but the bathroom could have been a bit better. Not dirty as such but appeared a bit worn/faded. Good opportunities to observe wildlife... More

First I would like to say: THANK YOU to Patricia, the owner of the Cacao Monkeys. I stayed there with my friends for 4 nights, it was excellent: the birds awaking you, the relax moments on the hammock observing the electric blue butterflies with the noisy sounds of the monkeys. it;s perfect place to start your trip to Corcovado National...

A fifteen minute walk from the centre of tiny Puerto Jimenez this really was a lovely spot. The welcome was warm and the cabins were clean and delightful, bathroom was spotless. We lay in bed surrounded by the sounds of the forest and awoke to howler monkeys. Included in the price was a delicious breakfast of pancakes and fruit taken... More

Cacao Monkeys is a great place to stay in Puerto Jimenez. Its a 5 minute walk from downtown - close enough to get to easily from anywhere, far enough to be out of the urban environment to allow you to taste the surrounding rainforest. The property includes trails to explore; guided hikes are available which will allow you to spot... More

The cacao monkey is a really nice place to stay in Puerto Jimenez. The cabinas are in the middle of the jungle, there's also a small trail which you can use to see animals (monkeys, a cayman and birds) for about 30 - 45 minutes. The cabinas are all very clean with private bathroom, they clean it any other day.... More

Cacao Monkeys is a perfect place for all nature lovers. They have a nice relaxing spot where we saw more animals than we saw during our hike through the Corcovado park - this was truly incredible! The service was also great: Jafeth told us a lot about the animals, and he made us a delicious breakfast with loads of fruits.... More

This place has five basic cabins set in the forest just on the edge of Puerto Jimenez. It might be ideal for the budget traveler or for small groups, but it could have been cleaner. We paid $50 (we're a couple) for a cabin with two queen beds and one full bed. The rate included a tasty breakfast. The cabin... More
