This place is exactly what you imagine when thinking of a 'hut in the jungle'. Waking up during 'Jumani-hour' with toucans, monkeys and macaws is wonderful. Take a shower in the clear river, beatiful. You can really notice that Simones and Vladimirs' goal is to give you the best service and time in Drake Bay. They recommended a very nice... More

We stayed at Jumanji in april for 3 nights in one of the 3 bungalows up on the hill. Best about Jumanji is the location: great views and sounds from the nature. All night, you hear the sounds from the nature within your bungalow. Bungalow was fine. Clean, good bed and nice space to sit outside. Food was good. Swimming... More

We recently spent time in the paradise that is Jumanji Bungalows. It was by far our favorite place we have stayed in Costa Rica, and it was our third visit to the country.

We just spent a week at Jumanji Jungalows and were delighted with our stay. First of all, you couldn't ask for better hosts--lovely people, well organized, friendly, relaxed and personable. They genuinely want to make sure you are well taken care of and enjoy your stay in Bahia Drake. And they graciously went out of their way to accommodate some... More

The place is simply great! Vladimir cooks some of the best meals you'll ever have and Simone makes great deserts. The view is amazing, the feeling is as if you had your home in the jungle. You can walk to the village in 10-15 minutes if you want to (have to go through shallow water) or get a quad to... More

Simone and Vladimir have created a small paradise in Drake's Bay. From the moment we arrived by quad -- an exciting experience for me since I'd never been on one before -- to the moment we left, Simone and Vladimir did everything to make sure our trip was memorable. The cabins are small and rustic but comfortable and equipped with... More

We are so happy we had the chance to meet and stay with Simone, Vladimir, and their adorable jungle baby for four nights. They really took care of us, from arranging our transportation from the "airport," recommending amazing day hikes, and feeding us delicious food that we will remember for years to come. It's no joke that I have dreamed... More

Jumanji is located in the jungle, app. 20 minutes walk from the bay. It is quite an effort to find the place, however if you are looking for a remote location to enjoy the nature - this is the place. We stayed in the bungalow near to the (small) swimming pool. The bungalow has many windows, and waking up in... More

We stayed three nights in Jumanji bungalows and overall we had good time there. Jumanji is located near Drake Bay, twenty minute walk from the bay. Its location is actually very nice. Lots of trees and animals around, feels bit like the jungle. Jumanji has three bungalows and a couple of rooms. We stayed in the 'oldest' bungalow on the... More
