We were at Jaguar Jungle two nights in January/15 and loved the whole experience. We hiked in from Drake Bay and that in itself was an experience (walking thru the jungle, crossing a river, playing in the waves along a beautiful beach and then trekking thru some primary jungle until we finally made it to the hostal). We stayed in... More

We emailed jaguar's jungle to see if they have two beds in their dorm for us but they said it was full but we could sleep in a tent. Fine we thought.. When we arrived we didn't get any information, they just showed us our tent, which wasn't in best shape. Then we were going to check in the hostel... More

If you like nature, private beaches, romantic candle-lit evenings, beautiful hiking trails, and friendly attentive staff and volunteers, then you'll love Jungla del Jaguar.

If you enjoy camping or are considering an overnight trip in the Corcovado Rainforest, this may be the place for you. It's definitely a step up from camping, but it is still basic. There's little electricity, light inside the main house or hot water, so it never get's all that clean. But you enjoy camping, right? The cabins (2) are... More

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
