We were so lucky to find this place. I think it's only just reopened. Set in beautiful tropical gardens loads of birds and monkeys. Rooms are very basic but with hot water and air con. There are lovely rocking chairs on the veranda to sit out on just watching the wildlife. Not far walk into town.

As we arrived, scarlet macaws sceamed and played in the trees above us, and they were a constant presence us all during our stay. Birds abound and white fac e monkeys make frequent appearances along with a huge iguana and countless butterflies in the beautiful expansive garden. The owners don't seem to care much if they have guests, the restaurant... More

This place is absolutely amazing. A double bed room was $50 a night, and though it was very small, the hotel grounds are incredible. The very friendly staff, including the security guard on duty all night, make you feel very welcome and safe. There are literally macaws, fireflies, parakeets, parrots, monkeys, iguanas, raccoons, and many other species that can be... More

This will be both a review and a sort of elegy. I had always wanted to stay in an ecolodge in the middle of a rainforest, but it was outside my means. La Choza really filled that need. Reasonably priced, and backing on the mangroves so that the birding is excellent--I saw scarlet macaws, red lored parrots, hummingbirds, flycatchers, cranes,... More

Looks like they are trying to redevelop this place - the bar/restaurant was closed (the nearest restaurants are about a 10-15 min walk), there was no hot water, window panes missing etc. The cheapest rooms ($49 for two) are minute. But the garden is lovely, the staff and dogs very friendly and it's very peaceful in the evening.

My girlfriend and I stayed at La Choza del Manglar in March 2011, and we met pcollins10 from British Columbia who also wrote a review. We were going to Osa for the first time and we searched tripadvisor for literally DAYS trying to pick a place to stay in PJ. We eventually took a risk and picked La Choza, and... More

My husband and I stayed for over a week. We were in Cabin 8, which is by the mangroves. We wanted to see lots of wildlife and wow, we weren't disappointed! Monkeys surrounded the place almost every morning and many times in the afternoon too. There were so many scarlet mackaws and other parrots, I lost count. They even have... More

Fantastic place with nice staff and a aboundance of wildlife that just took my breath away. I was watching Whate-faced capuchins and raccoons for breakfast, tukans for lunch ang iguanas and cajmans for supper. You can see a lot of animals just sitting in the little cozy swimming pool, or standing on a bridge that crosses the little stream, just... More

Lacks atmosphere.Room was tiny, damp and smelly. It should market itself as a hostel. Staff were completely disinterested.
