There are 2 amazing ranger stations in Corcovado National Park. Sirena, secondary jungle with lots of animal life, and San Pedrillo, the best primary jungle experience.. Leo's property boarders the San Pedrillo Ranger Station so it doesn't take much of a walk from your bedroom to feel like humans never existed. Incredible location with very friendly and helpful volunteer staff..... More

This place is perfect for escaping the society. It's really secluded, really pretty. The staffs and volunteers are nice and helpful. And they will take you to a lot of amazing trails and sightseeing. Everyday is an adventure. However I would appreciate a better bathroom with real hot water. But the climate is very hot so it's not really the... More

Nestled next to Corcovado National Park, Jungla del Jaguar is an authentic rainforest and marine adventure lodge. It's secluded and serene location makes it ideal for travellers who want to be immersed in nature. I absolutely loved my 3 week stay here as a volunteer and guarantee that you will too!

As a couple with a 10 year old girl, this place was absolutely perfect for us! The boat ride in was an experience itself (be prepared for 2 hours and $30pp each way). The accommodation was very simple (beds with mosquito nets, separate shower), but it gave the place a feeling of actually being in the jungle. We brought our... More

Stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our time. Nicole prepared amazing meals for us, and Leo helped with a lot of local questions. Some of our food got stolen out of the cupboard by a menacing coati, but that's living in the jungle! I would have wished for a bit more "upselling" - tours, drinks, etc, but we enjoyed the... More

I stayed at Jungla del Jaguar for about 10 days as a volunteer. The staff was wonderful and the food tasty. If you are looking for serious seclusion, this is definitely the place for you. You will be immersed in nature, with opportunities to visit the Corcovado National Park and Cano Island, or you can opt to bathe in the... More

The location is great if you want to feel like you're millions of miles away from civilization and stranded on an island with no way out. The dorm rooms are great...no fans though which might be needed on hot nights. I wouldn't recommend staying in the private room because it's in the kitchen. They use solar power and also have...

The location is amazing. The beach is like paradise. You can even pick your own mangos for breakfeast. Leo the owner studied biology and knows a lot about the surroundings and the jungle is definitly just outside the doors. Still we must say that the place is not the cleanest. We stayed in one of the private cabines which hadn´t... More

Hi Chilcanos, You are right. Leo the owner, IS awesome!:) He has devoted himself to making Jungla Del Jaguar an affordable place for backpackers to experience nature in its ultimate purity. To enable its affordability, however, requires volunteers to be the primary source of help. If there is an issue with your room for any reason, it is merely due... More

My boyfriend and I expected paradise on earth after reading the reviews on here. While Jungla del Jaguar was quite exotic it left us disappointed in several areas. The good news is that the location is incredible! It really is in the jungle and the surrounding beaches and trails are lovely. Leo and the other worker we met were very... More

Hi Caleymeeks, Thank you for your review. We feel it is important for guests to be well aware of necessary information before arriving here. Allow me to clarify a few points you mentioned... 1.) "The Boat is $25 per person" The boat is in fact $25 from Sierpe to Jungla Del Jaguar. While most people take this route, there are... More

My overall review of this hostel is really good. We were amazed by the view, the food, the kindness and stories of Leo and the location of this hostel. Its an absolute paradise. The only thing I would suggest is to inform if the mother of the owner would be around the house, she interferes with the guests a little... More
