We are two American wildlife biologists who traveled to Costa Rica to experience the culture and view the amazing wildlife and scenery. The Howler Monkey Hotel was the perfect fit for us! It offered everything we were looking for. If you want a fancy, full service, cookie-cutter resort- look elsewhere! The Howler Monkey Hotel offers the real Costa Rican experience.... More

We are two Backpackers from Germany, stayed there for 4 days (30.08 - 02.09.14), and the owner is one of the most awesome guys/ scientists we've met there. Great hospitality, good service, amazing nature and beautiful dog :) You can go snorkeling, adventurous to the island of the dead :D and rent a Quad driving to Montezuma or just chill... More

This is the place to get re-balanced in life and awaken your soul. Jim the owner is right out of a novel. He is generous, funny and the perfect host. The last Costa Rican hotel we stayed at didn't have a coffee maker, Jim was our coffee maker although we had one in our kitchen also. Sitting down with a... More

Great spot to visit. My wife and daughter and I stayed for 3 nights and wish we had stayed longer. Close to the oldest National Park in CR with lots of cool things to see nearby. They have a couple of bikes and kayaks and fishing gear (all free) and you can jump in the pool anytime to cool off.... More

This a fab little hide away with everything you could need. We loved drifting off to sleep with the sound of the waves and being woken up by the monkeys in the morning. Being able to canoe to the cementry island and snorkel was a great experience. We were able to hire bikes to cycle into Montezuma or get the... More

It is a very special place that is off the beaten track!! We loved staying in a quiet, peacefull place and to enjoy the incredible nature and coast there. We had so many animals passing by that it was actually better than any other place (even very expensive parks) to spot the wildlife! Great pool, hearty host and nice cabañas.... More

I was travelling with my roommate and we were stranded after we took the ferry crossing the Nicoya gulf. Unfortunately it was the last boat so there were no more busses on the other side which means we were stranded. Luckily enough for us the owner of the hotel picked us up after we decided to hitchhike and he took... More

This is a place that is highly recomendable for nature lovers that prefer a nice well equipped bungalow (with a beautiful view) to a tent. The place is close to a lot of vegetation, as a consequence you will see monkeys playing directly from your balcony and if you turn your head you can watch the tide come and go.... More

When we arrived we immediately knew we would not be staying at at the Howler Monkey. We paid cash in advance since credit cards are not accepted. Dumb move. Didn't get a refund. We still decided to leave. That was a good move. Very disappointing.
